Welcome to the first of a new series beginning today on Norwich Buses Blog, with no set day for publishing, just an as-and-when post. The new posts look at vehicles before and after repaint, a similar structure to recent posts in our Facebook Group which have proved very popular.
We begin the series with First Norwich 66976 KX05MGZ, which - within just a month - was repainted twice. Hitting the road in early September, 66976 was painted a darker yellow than intended, which lead to some confusion as to whether it was for the Yellow Line or Orange Line. 66976 was swiftly repainted into a brighter shade of yellow so as to not cause confusion once Orange Line vehicles are put into service.
