Friday happenings

Purple Line 33163 was allocated to the Pink Line today.
Duty called in the City Centre this afternoon, allowing for an hour or so of bus watching. Things were generally behaving themselves, however, I did manage to get an odd working and a few visiting vehicles caught on camera.

First Norwich Purple Line branded Plaxton President bodied Dennis Trident 33163 LR02LXZ was unusually allocated onto Pink Line 11 and 11A journeys today. Purple Line cousin, Wright Eclipse Urban bodied 66977 KX05MHA, was earning its keep on the 37 today.

I then headed off for a chat with regular contributor Dan Whiting and our driving contributor Joe Thorpe. The enthusiasts were out in force today, and as always it was great to catch up with you all. A special mention today goes to the driver on the 15:55 Stagecoach Norfolk X29 out of Norwich, who was wholeheartedly one of the cheeriest and most inviting drivers I have come across in a long time.

Shearing were represented today by vehicle 120.
The visiting coaches, too, were flooding into Norwich today - and will continue to do so for the rest of the summer coach holiday season. Noted from holiday giant Shearings was this Setra S416GTHD, a type which Shearings have been forced to replace with Mercedes Benz Toursimos following EvoBus' decision to drop the Setra range in the Great British coach market. The focus from EvoBus is instead on the Tourismo and the Euro 6 Tourismo M.

Coaches were also noted visiting from Worthings, Alfa Travel and foregin operator. Expressbus. 

On a separate note today, I also managed to complete a little bus-project which I have been tirelessly trying to complete; more on that once it is all finalised!
