Bumper Sanders Update: Revisions, specials and fleet news

One of Sanders latest arrivals on the Park & Ride today
A bumper Sanders special comes this evening after a big day of Sanders news.

This evening is the renowned Cromer Carnival, with thousands expected to descend on the humble seaside town. A Park and Ride operation is in place from Sanders up until half-past-ten tonight, using a pair of freshly arrived Wright Pulsar 2 bodied VDL SB200s this afternoon. It is believed that a third vehicle will be used during the peak this evening when everybody rushes to head home. I headed out with blog contributor Sam Larke this afternoon for a very enjoyable few hours in the sun, more photographs should appear on my Flickr soon.

Notably, in use today was 230 YJ59AYY - the latest of the type to arrive. A further example is expected imminently. In other Sanders news, one of a pair of Scania Omnicitys has also arrived at Sanders' depot in Holt. Sanders reported on their Twitter feed this morning that the bus is already out in service.

Released today were details of network revisions to Sanders services this coming September. From August 30th, the 6 and 6A will see minor timetable changes and routing amendments in North Walsham. Coming  from September 6th are minor route and timetable changes to the 9, 43, 44, X44, X55 and 210. From the same date, new service 10 will begin shadowing directly First service 12 - which is withdrawn from all stops after Wroxham from September 20th, and the existing 42 - taken on from Eastons of Stratton Strawless - will be rerouted to serve Aldeford between Swannington and Reepham. Later in the month, from September 21st, timetable changes on the X11 and 34 will be amended to allow smooth connections and an even timetable between Norwich and Stalham.
