Lynx take over Coasthopper service

Four more Optare X1060 Tempos will join the Lynx fleet to run
the lengths of the North Norfolk coast.
As already mentioned here on the blog, Lynx have taken over the running of the renowned Coasthopper service from mid-October.

This has been officially confirmed in an enthusiast update on the Lynx website. My current understanding is that Lynx have won the tender to operate the service for the winter season; from VOSA updates, it is clear that the 35 remains and will operate the King's Lynn to Hunstanton section, currently the CH1, whilst a new service 36 will operate the rest of the route through to Cromer. The service is to be operated by relatively rare 10.6 metre Optare Tempos, these being YJ58CEYPF10MDXPF10MDY and  PF10MHM. Formerly with Diamond North West, the four buses will become vehicles 7-10 in the order listed above.

As far as I am told, Stagecoach Norfolk are to continue operating along parts of the Coasthopper routes on a commercial basis. Stagecoach buses will still operate between King's Lynn and Wells, forming a 29 for Fakenham.
