|Konectbus 412 on the second ever service 2 from Norwich|
With the Konectbus 2 withdrawn as of this Sunday, I felt it to be appropriate for this week's Throwback Thursday to head back three years to the first day of the then new service.
Photographed here on Sunday 18th November 2012 on the second ever departure of the 2 is Optare Tempo 412 YJ09MHY. The service was at the hands of 412 and sisters 411 MX58ABV and 413 YJ09MHZ, 411 and 412 had been new in 2009 for the also then newly introduced Str8 service between Dereham and Norwich, and were displaced with the delivery of five dedicated Alexander Dennis Enviro400s.
At the time of photograph, the 2 operated as far as Sheringham - with the 2A through to Holt being introduced the following year on Monday 15th April. Other than the long withdrawn service 30 between Dereham, Fakenham and Wells, the 2 and accompanying 2A was Konectbus' first punch at a service into North Norfolk.
