|Euroview Coaches of Dereham have launched their new website|
November! It is here already. Norwich Buses Blog will soon be in its third year and continues to grow above and beyond my expectations.
We will begin this week's Odds and Ends with something new. Euroview Coaches of Dereham, owned by Coach Services of Thetford, have launched their new website recently. To see it, please click here. On the subject, First Norfolk & Suffolk have also updated their website this week; see here.
Today is the final day of the Anglianbus and Konectbus network as we know it, before a number of cuts come in. I have heard others saying how they feel the current network is the largest it will ever be at. As of tomorrow, the Konectbus 2 and 2A will cease to exist, whilst the 5 and 53 will be merged and the Tuckswood section of the 53 withdrawn. Anglianbus X88 will be a much more frequent service and knock many 88 journeys of the spot, whilst the 7 will operate all the way through to Lowestoft to replace the 61 - which will run from Lowestoft only. All the other changes across the entire network can be found in previous posts.
|There looks to be interesting changes on First's X1 and X2|
As of this Wednesday, new First Norwich Streetlites 63324 and 63325 were dispatched from Wrightbus to Belfast Port for onward shipping. 63319, 63322 and 63323 were still at Wrightbus receiving mechanical attention to make everything 'spick and spam' before leaving for Norwich.
Notices and Proceedings Watch was missed this week due to me being in London, however, major changes registered are to First X1 and X2 (From what I have been provisionally told, they are rather significant), whilst there are changes to the Lowestoft network.
To sum the week up, a look at this week's posts. On Monday, a vehicle focus took at a look at YIL2269 whilst there was an end to a Konectbus era. Tuesday's Time Tunnel took a look at the former Eastern Counties Mundesley Outstation whilst Oddball Wednesday took a look at something a little different to normal. Throwback Thursday was a look at a duo of two Darts delivered new to First in 2002 and we took a look at some National Express interlopers. On Friday, we published a special report from London, followed by the first photos of a First Norwich Orange Line repaint. On Saturday we took a look at the latest updates from Bernard Matthews runs.
