First Norwich 33055 repainted

Freshly repainted 33055 LN51GKO at Drayton Cock today
I headed into Norwich City Centre briefly this afternoon in hope of getting a photograph of freshly repainted First Norwich 33055 LN51GKO, which returned back from Rotherham works yesterday. I was soon told by a driver that it was still sat in the depot - so home I headed.

Entirely to my surprise however, a gleaming lilac bus shot out in front of the bus I was  at ASDA in the same direction. I later sighted it at Drayton Cock bus lay-by, so hopped off my bus for a photograph and waited for the one behind. I can only assume that it was swapped for a vehicle on service 28.

I have to say, it does look very smart; on the nearside the large First 'f' logo has been applied rearwards of the back wheel - an addition applied similarly to Purple Line liveried 33163 LR02LXZ. On the subject, Konectbus Alexander Dennis Enviro400 633 SN65OAP has finally had all relevant Park and Ride vinyls applied.
