Weekly Round-Up: January 11th-17th

Since last weekend, lots has happened on the local enthusiast scene. During the week, both us and Norwich Bus Page launched brand new looks, giving blog readers plenty of new material to look at. On this blog in particular, the launch of a collection of historical fleet lists seemed popular, with around 200 viewers to this page alone.

Monday 11th saw the entry into service of the first Yellow Line double-decker in it's new colours; 32106 LT02ZCV appeared on the Red Line 23 service on Monday evening.

Tuesday 12th saw 32106 enter service on it's native route, the Yellow Line 28. Konect 901 was noted in service with Anglian on service 60H (Beccles-Halesworth). Sanders first VDL Gemini, 109 LJ53NHV, entered service on service X44.

Wednesday 13th was a day for more Sanders news as Adam Wilkie noted another addition to the fleet in the shape of YH63CXE, which is ex-Fishwicks. Purely an observation is that Fishwicks also operated YH63CXF, it will be interesting to see if this joins its sister vehicle in the Sanders fleet.

Thursday 14th was a bit of a slow news day. Cameron informed us that up at Rotherham refurbishment centre, 32107 had finished the repaint process whilst 32105 was ready to begin it, having been internally refurbished. Yesterday Cameron further informed me that 32107 is yet to return to Norwich; he also said to watch his First Eastern Counties Blog for some exciting news coming soon.

Friday 15th was the day that details of the upcoming Anglianbus service changes emerged.

Saturday 16th saw me venture out BorderBus hunting, but again was a slow day for news.

For next weeks round-up I am keen to hear of any unusual workings you have spotted during the week, so please get in touch via Facebook, Twitter or email at samuel.larke@gmail.com

Thanks for making me feel very welcome on my first week back on the blog - with special mentions to Steve, Grahame, Kieran and Daniel who have all been of great help or support over the last seven days.
