Friday Flashback ~ March 2008 (Part Two)

Again Friday Flashback returns to March 2008 with most of the photos taken in the Suffolk town of Ipswich on the 21st of the month.

First up is East Lancs Spryte bodied Dennis Dart SLF 97 X97 LBJ at Tower Ramparts with the unusual mid nearside advertisement for the local newspaper publications

Next we make our way to Constantine Road depot where we find Leyland Olympian 39 H775 PTW on the ramp. Previously Dublin Bus RH28 (90D1028), it moved to Ipswich in April 2003 where it was a number acquired from the operator which were almost exclusively used on schools services. After a brief stint in private ownership it moved to Mulleys in early 2012 and the Classic Irish Buses website records that it had left there by September 2015

Also in the yard that day was Optare Solo 235 X235 MBJ and Dennis Dart SLF/ East Lancs Spryte 133 R133 FBJ. The former was previously with Yorkshire Tiger whilst the latter was new to Ipswich in April 1998

Our final photo is of Norfolk County Council Services' Caetano bodied Dennis Javelin V667 FPO at Great Yarmouth's Beach Coach Station on the 25th. It subsequently moved north of the border to Bradley Contracts of Barrhead in East Renfrewshire
