Ensign in May

Ross Newman continues to supply monthly updates on the comings and goings at dealers Ensign.

May's report includes the arrival of ten buses from First Essex and among the three Darts appearing is a one time member of the First Great Yarmouth fleet. ADL Pointer bodied Dart 42955 WX06 OMM was one of two transferred to First Caister Road from First Cymru during November 2018. Whilst in use at Lowestoft it transferred to First Essex Colchester depot in February this year.

Contributor Mark Doggett visited Ensign on the 4th June and also observed the presence of former Lowestoft Dart 42908 WX05 RVR plus ex Great Yarmouth Volvo B7TL 32058 W218 XBD and Wright Eclipse bodied 66334 MV02 VBZ.

Another First Great Yarmouth exile, Volvo B7TL 30947 YJ51 RRU, made its final trip from Ensign to Shelton Motors for scrap during May. It had arrived in Norwich from Oldham in November 2018 and moved to Great Yarmouth in June 2019 to assist with with the summer season. Four months later it transferred to Lowestoft and was withdrawn there the following February.

My thanks to Ross for the updates and to Mark for the use of his photos.
