50s Seaside Celebration ~ Saturday Pics

This weekend saw the '50s Seaside Celebration' being held at the East Anglia Transport Museum at Carlton Colville. Here are some photos from the first day of the event.

First Eastern Counties, who were supporting the event, had already arranged the return of First Great Yarmouth Dart 42956 WX06OMO on Friday and replaced it at First Lowestoft with the loan of open top Trident 32905 W905VLN. So it was too good an opportunity to miss for it to be used on Saturday's free park and ride service.

Noted in the parking area at the museum was 'Larry Lodekka' otherwise known as former Eastern Counties ECW bodied Bristol FL6G 557BNG. Beside it was ex London Country AEC Regent III KXW234

The final photo shows two former Lowestoft Corporation buses on old Eastern Counties territory at Gordon Road opposite the bus station. 1947 built AEC Regent 21 GBJ192 is in front of AEC Swift 4 YRT898H.

My thanks to Simon Bartram for providing the photos
