There is also some very interesting 'going ons' at the bus station, as Zak's photo shows.
On the day, there were a number of very odd allocations. One example was the use of AnglianBus 608 on the 587, which is run using vehicles from the Rackheath depot. On these vehicles, some of the graphics on the rear have disappeared. On 608, it now says "Carbon bus for a cleaner city".
Although it has happened before, this is quite an odd working. National Express were using Scania K340EB4/Caetano Levante on the 727. This is in a special livery commemorating the commenwealth games. Last year, the allover gold liveried coach worked the 727 to Norwich.
When leaving for the city, Kieran set out to photograph Konectbus 609, which is currently operating in Konectexpress 8 livery with a Harford Park and Ride liveried front panel.
Another rare allocation on the 587/588 was 512 operating the 588 throughout the day. These East Lancs Lolyne bodied Dennis Tridents came from fellow Go-Ahead owned company Brighton and Hove. They are usually seen operating school services and occasionally Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth town services.
