Odds and Ends - 29/11/2015

New arrival 60916 on the 36 on Saturday afternoon
Welcome to the final Odds and Ends report of November, before we head into the final month and the run up to Christmas - advent calendars at the ready!

Special Christmas Park and Ride Sunday and Thursday evening buses begin this coming week, and Bernard Matthews services in Norwich are now at their peak. Richard's have coaches leaving Great Witchingham at around 21:15 for Tunstead and First are now running their contracted services on a Saturday.

This week has seen a number of vehicles hit the road in Norwich, completing batches and deliveries until we await the next. The final two Wright Streetlite Max buses for First Norwich Green Line services entered service in the latter half of the week, some twenty three days after their first day in service. Former Devon and Cornwall Wright Eclipse bodied Volvo B7RLEs 60915 YG02DLZ and 60916 YG02DKU are both on the road. 

47508 on rail replacement work on Friday afternoon
At Sanders, all three former Johnsons Optare Olympus bodied Scania N230UD deckers are on the road with Sanders branding and with their individual names. East Lancs Omnidekka bodied Scania N94UD 114 YN54AFV has returned this week from interior refurbishment and bodywork improvements and repaint.

First have been employing Wright Streetlites from both Norwich and Great Yarmouth depots on rail replacement services for Abellio Greater Anglia Trains services from Norwich to the coast. Photographed here on Friday is Norwich based 47508 SN64CRK parked up at the side of the station building.
