BorderBus 'Demo'

Since Friday last week the website has shown a BorderBus 'Demo' ticket machine in use on the 580 route. I had been meaning to look into the matter but just assumed it might be one of the former Yellow Buses using another ticket machine.

Contributor AndrewW also noted this and yesterday 'finally got around to investigating in person and attached is a picture of the vehicle on Beaufort Way working the 12:40 Yarmouth to Bungay service (despite the destination display indicating otherwise).

The vehicle in question is 39 seater ADL Enviro200, reg SN66 WKF, wearing Stephensons of Essex livery and carrying fleet number 467. It is assumed to be on loan to BorderBus and this week has been working the 580 duty with the Harleston extensions daily in place of the now regular Scania decker YT59 FSO.

SN66 WKF looks to have made its way down to Essex sometime in 2018 after starting life with Stephensons of in September 2016.'

My thanks to Andrew for his report and photo.

  1. Hey! SN66 WKF was borrowed from Stephensons while YT59 SFO was away for some work. :)
