Interesting visitor on the M37

Stagecoach Midland Red 59301 visited Norwich yesterday
Another of my 'right place at the right time' moments happened yesterday when I was able to capture this interesting visitor working the Megabus M37 yesterday morning.

An rarity in the fleet of Megabus vehicles is this Caetano Levante bodied Scania K340EB6. 59301 FJ08KNY was, somewhat ironically, new to Stagecoach in Cheltenham and Gloucester for work on contracts for Megabus' biggest competitor; National Express. It later moved to Stagecoach Western for use on the Ayr to Glasgow X77 service, where it was then displaced onto Megabus work and transferred to Stagecoach Midland Red.

The Caetano Levante body was originally built and available exclusively for National Express and its contractors, however, in recent years many have become available on the used market or becomming used by National Express contractors on their own work.
