Some interesting bits

A semi complete Norse president in 2010 (Nervous Graphics)
Regular contributor Sam Larke has recently pointed me in the direction of a company Facebook page from Nervous Graphics, a local business specialising in signs and vehicle graphics. All photographs used remain copyright to their respective photographers at Nervous Graphics.

First up is this one from inside the Norse depot on Fifers Lane, where a Transbus President decker is seen midway through the application of company decals back in 2010, just before the contract for the Norwich Park and Ride services was renewed.

Further research has revealed that Nervous Graphics are no stranger to the local bus industry. The company has recreated many vintage adverts for the side of preserved Eastern Counties buses in the area and were responsible for applying the interior seaside views at the rear of Stagecoach Norfolk Coasthopper branded Optare Solos. At Konectbus, many of the rear adverts promoting the operator were designed and applied by Nervous Graphics. In more recent months, Nervous Graphics contributed to the design and application of exterior and interior decals on Lynx buses.

Norfolk Green 9 in its promo livery for Lifestyles (Nervous Graphics)
Another interesting one I found was this Optare Spectra bodied DAF DB250LF from the Norfolk Green fleet in 2011, before the Stagecoach takeover. Then number 9 in the fleet, YG02FWD was treated to this overall advert livery promoting the Lifestyles festival in Hunstaton, which Norfolk Green previously had a close connection to. 9 was painted into the then new style Norfolk Green livery with advertisements for the fleet refurbishment program by the next summer.

It's amazing what you can find on Facebook, especially when it comes to buses!
