"Jersey Dart" appears in Norwich and other First news

43863 EG52FFK made a surprise appearance in Norwich today
Thanks to a tip of from regular contributor Cameron Robinson this morning, I was able to photograph an unexpected appearance in Norwich this morning.

Caetano Slimbus bodied Dennis Dart MPD, affectionately known as "Jersey Darts" by local enthusiasts, 43863 EG52FFK was allocated to the 38 all day. The reason behind its appearance is as yet unknown. (Update: Chris Speed has updated me saying that 43863 will now be parked at Roundtree Way depot prior to transfer to Bristol in the coming few weeks)

In other First news, recent transfer 66982 KX05MHL now has a yellow front whilst at least one other of the type has been prepared for repaint.

  1. Think you'll find it's 66977.

    1. 66977 was repainted in May, and entered service on Friday 5th June https://flic.kr/p/tSXAy2

  2. My mistake - but it's still not 66976 but 66982.

    1. That is the one I meant, looks like we're all getting caffuffled at this one! Thank you :)
