Liam decided to have a run to Beccles on 204 X662 LLX, the former Metroline VPL160, and says that riding on these VPLs is like 'stepping into a time machine back to the early noughties; fit a double door and you have the full London experience'. The old Metroline moquette and ribbed hand rails invokes nostalgia more than the First and Go-Ahead versions'
Arriving in Beccles, similar 202 X643 LLX was also on the Old Market stand for some unknown reason and was out of service. I couldn't find any reference to it being out on the Bus Times site.
He alighted from 204 at the Beccles Tesco store and got another photo there
My thanks to Liam for the photos
