First Great Yamouth Update

The latest news from First's Caister Road depot includes the appearance of yet another Ipswich Reds TransBus bodied Volvo B7TL in the workshop. This time it is AU53HJY's engine receiving attention.

Dart SLF 42956 WX06OMO has also recently moved into the works after being in the rear yard since mid March. It developed an electrical fault whilst in use in Lowestoft and was towed to Caister Road earlier in the month

Work on replacing the rear axle of Gemini 37572 AU58ECW has been completed and the vehicle is awaiting collection by First Norwich

Two more buses recently departed for Ensign are Darts 42484/5 SN03WLW/WMX. They had arrived from First Essex in October 2019 to provide assistance for the traditional increase in Bernard Matthews contract work in the lead up to Christmas last year.

Their departure leaves only three withdrawn vehicles in the rear yard - Ipswich accident victim 32494 AU53HKM and long withdrawn 30886 W741DWX and 66341 MV02VCT

My thanks to First for the initial photo and information
