Local Depot Updates

There has been changes to the status of some of First Great Yarmouth and First Lowestoft vehicles

There has been activity among Great Yarmouth's five Plaxton President bodied Volvo B7TLs with 32204 LT52WTK now in service at Norwich as LiamS has captured in the photo. Also 32212 LT52WTV has been taken out of service due to gearbox failure. It is rumoured that the remainder are destined for Norwich. An ALX400 version, 32058 W218XBD has also suffered the same fate.

The rear yard at Caister Road now has 36188 BN12JYL awaiting spare parts and it is keeping company with withdrawn Darts 42484/5 SN03WLW/WME

Meanwhile, withdrawn at First Lowestoft are ALX400 bodied Volvo B7TLs 30888 W743DWX, 30913 W768DWX and 30947 YJ51RRU. As most of you will know, 30888 carries the Lowestoft heritage livery.

There has also been some 'musical chairs' with local buses following the recent cascade and we hope to bring you more news about that soon once things settle down.

My thanks to Liam for the photo and to First for the information
