Odds and ends - 17/05/2015

What a week, and what a result for City yesterday! There's been a whole load of big news and happenings this week which have all been reported as and when they occurred, meaning there is very little to report in this week's Odds and ends.

First Ipswich Plaxton Paragon bodied Volvo B12M 20514 WV02EUP has had its private hire vinyls applied and is now looking very smart.

Besides the rare workings already reported this week, Dan Whiting reported that Anglianbus Optare Solo 960 AU58AKK appeared on the 7 on Wednesday 13th. On Monday 11th, First 29 passengers were treated to two Wright Streetlites - Streetlites are only booked to appear on the service on a Saturday, alongside another single deck bus.

To round the week up, Monday's first post was very popular featuring a brand new coach in Norwich. There was later a rather odd working from Konectbus, as reported by Dan Whiting. Tuesday's Time Tunnel came from Bure Valley Coaches and there was a new addition and a massive throwback. Wednesday saw the usual Oddball Wednesday post (Featuring a real oddity built for Baghdad, but only getting as far as Cambridge), news of the arrival of Megabus in Great Yarmouth and all the latest changes summed up in one in this fortnight's Notices & Proceedings Watch. On Thursday, a report was published from a bus bonanza the previous day, there was news of two very smart new additions to the Sanders fleet and the latest service changes at local First operations were revealed. Friday saw news from Konectbus and Coach Services regarding Big Weekend, followed by a day jam packed with rare happenings. On Saturday, the latest Around The UK was published, featuring some very controversial moves and some new initiatives.

NEXT WEEK there are set to be a few photo specials and regular contributor Sam Larke will be writing a some guest posts to cover for me whilst I have three solid days of A-level exams - I know he has kept his mouth quiet especially for an exciting post he will be writing towards the end the week!
