Final 51 Plate Faces Withdrawal

I understand that the final '51 registered ALX400 bodied Volvo B7TL double decker is to be removed from service within the next few days.

30960 YJ51 RDU began life with First York (Rider) in January 2002 and arrived on the east coast in May 2018. As such it has amassed more than twenty years in service with First and is the last of a batch of six joining First Great Yarmouth from First Manchester in that year.

It is seen here on Crab Lane earlier this morning returning from Bradwell with the 6 service to Great Yarmouth's Market Gates. It had previously operated over the last three days primarily on the 8s between the James Paget Hospital and Caister's Marram Drive.

Apparently today was 30960’s last day in service as it was withdrawn tonight (21st October)
