New Evoras for Sanders

North Norfolk operator Sanders Coaches has taken delivery of four brand new MCV Evora single-deckers.

The photo by Stephen Purkiss shows number 529 BV72 KKD receiving route branding and fleet name vinyls at the Hempstead Road Depot in Holt. Although similar to the six Coasthopper branded vehicles these latest additions are of the longer type with a maximum seating capacity of 46. All are individually named after long serving and well respected members of the Sanders team, two of whom, Martin Wise and Roger Parker, sadly passed away this year.

Sign written and wrapped in the new X55 livery, they are to be introduced onto the North Walsham to Norwich service from January 2nd. Fleet numbers, registrations and namings are as follows:- 
526 BV72 KKA Roger Parker
527 BV72 KKB Brian Billman
528 BV72 KKC Joe Cook
529 BV72 KKD Martin Wise

Their introduction into service means that three Optare Olympia bodied Scanias 120-122  PN09 ELJ/EMJ/ENJ will return to Holt as will loanee 518 BV21 OOA

My thanks to Sanders and Stephen Purkiss for the information and photos
