First Whippet of Spring ~ 14th April 2012

Another in our series of viewing previous posts from the same date in a different year and this time we go back to 14th April 2012 which fell on a Saturday.

Jonckheeer Mistral bodied Volvo B10M-62 H19WCL was formerly Y391KBN

Synonymous with the first cuckoo of spring was the appearance of the first Whippet Coach of spring in Great Yarmouth!

Whippet Coaches operated the first service of the year to Great Yarmouth on that day. Regular visitor from previous year, Volvo B10M H19WCL, appeared on Service A from Cambridge and is seen here at Beach Coach Station in mid-afternoon.

Whippet used to operate a number of coastal routes from Cambridgeshire to many coastal resorts which ran for the last time during the summer of 2014. Although termed as seasonal, one Great Yarmouth service even ran through until December!
