Friday Flashback ~ September 2010

For this week's Friday Flashback we look back to September 2010 which includes a visit to Sheringham in addition to a couple of photos from the Great Yarmouth area.

Our first photo is of Ambassador Travel's FN52 HRG, a Plaxton Profile Bodied Volvo B12M, which was unusually parked on Church Lane next to Gorleston Church on the 14th. New in November 2002 it was more recently re-registered KIG 1856. It subsequently joined the Isle of Wight fleet of ALS Travel and has made return visits to its former home town.

Moving on to the town's Beach Coach Station we view Shearings Holidays 222 BF10 VCP on the same day. A regular visitor to the town, the Setra S416GT-HD coach was new to the operator in April 2010.

The remainder of the photos were taken in Sheringham on the Station Approach on the 19th of the month and outside the station was open topper 6546 FN. The Alexander RH bodied Leyland Olympian was previously E300 MSG and was purchased new as a closed top by Lothian Buses in April 1988.

The trip to Sheringham coincided with attendance at North Norfolk Railway's 1940s weekend with preserved buses in attendance. They included this ex Eastern Counties Eastern Coach Works bodied Bristol LL5G KNG 718 restored by the Eastern Transport Collection Society.

Another visitor was a former Westcliff-on-Sea Bristol K5G with Eastern Coach Works bodywork. AJN 825 was new to Westcliff on 31st March 1939 entering service the following day. It is now owned by the 825 Preservation Group..
