Friday Sightings

I (Zak) met up with fellow bloggers Kieran and Sam today in Norwich to do a spot of spotting today. Our first venture was up to the roof of Queen's Road carpark! Here we can see how busy the bus station was, with many buses getting stuck and having to wait a while for the bays to clear .
Then we went up to the Airport Industrial Estate, to visit Norse. Upon arrival the first thing we noticed was the presence of two coaches. W172/3 VEL, two Volvo B10M Plaxton Panthers were in a plain white livery with a green rear. Upon research, they came from Plaxton Bus and Coach Sales. I am still unaware which company theses coaches originally came from.

66957 After being freed from its advert and below, how it
used to look.
After this, Kieran informed me that we weren't too far away from Lansdowne Road's First depot. Unfortunately there were no buses present so we continued onto Vulcan Road. This is where we noticed Volvo B7RLE Wright Eclipse Urban 66957 (WX55TZU) leaving the garage. It has been relieved of its long service advert for the Co-op, and now sports an unfinished, standard First livery. It was later noticed back in service on the 23, and 13.
