An abundance of coaches descends on University of East Anglia

Matthews J30CAF outside the UCAS Convention venue
Today was the annual UCAS University convention at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, which lead to an abundance of coaches descending on the site from across the Eastern region. The event saw universities from across the nation set up a stall to show off what they had on offer to students currently in secondary education.

First up is this Jonckheere Mistral 50 bodied Volvo B10M J30CAF which was visiting Norwich from Shouldham based Matthews Coaches - in West Norfolk. Just visible behind is a Volvo 9700 Prestige Plus from the Mil-Ken Travel fleet based in Ely, Cambridgeshire. Mil-Ken travel made an appearance in Part Two of our photo special from the Norwich City v Wembley play off finals at Wembley.

Noted attending from Mulleys of Ixworth were three vehicles; two Jonckheere Mistral 50 bodied Volvo B10Ms and a Beulas El Mundo bodied Iveco Eurorider; two of which were at the hands of local vintage vehicle owners Dan Trent and Richard Walker.

Lincolnshire operator Dickinsons brought a duo of smart Panthers
Visiting from Boston, Lincolnshire, was the smartly turned out Dickinson's Coach Travel. Dickinson's operate a fleet of around eleven coaches, many of these being of the Plaxton/Volvo combination - being established forty eight years this year. Today a duo of Plaxton Panther bodied Volvo B12Bs, headed by YN08NWV. In 2014, they took delivery of a brand new Plaxton Panther bodied Volvo B9R.

On a more local scale, vehicles were noted included three, from Richards of Guist, two from Sanders, D&H Harrod Coaches, four from Simonds, Semmence, thee from Ambassador Travel, two from Norse and two from Peelings.

On a separate note, Konectbus Mercedes Benz Citaro 802 made an unusual appearance on the 4 past the University this morning.
