Saturday Adventures

 Today, I've been out and about in Norwich and North Norfolk. Here are some of my pictures from the day!
Just a couple of hours ago I went to Norse to see if there was any change to the two Volvo B12B/Plaxton Panthers which Norse have acquired. Although they are still in a green and white livery, they have had Norse fleet names applied to front. Unfortunately  I was unable to get a better picture as this was taken through a fence. Just to left of the picture, you can catch a glimpse of one of Norwich Airport park and ride Plaxton Presidents.

I also visited the Sanders depot in Holt to collect some fleet numbers of the coaches for our fleet list. Noted in the corner of the depot were these two withdrawn buses; a DAF SB220/Ikarus Citibus and a Mercedes Benz 811D/Plaxton Beaver (Right). In contast, I also managed to get pictures of two newer buses, in the form of the two Plaxton Cheetah 3's which are in the basic white livery. This one is registered YN62 AAE, the other being slightly newer and registered YN13 AVY. Before heading back on the Konectbus 2 to Norwich I stopped off in Cromer to catch some coaches and some buses in the area. In the coach park on Cadogen Road was this Volvo B12M owned by Alfa Travel, numbered 47 in the fleet. The driver was very nice and gave me a little book with 2012's fleet list in it! Earlier in the day, I saw one of the new 2013 registered Mercedes Benz coaches reported a few days ago on the East Norfolk Bus Blog
Also at the coach park was this Coopers Tours Beulas Stergo bodied Irisbus Eurorider with cherished registration R777 JCS. As always, many more photos from today can be found on my Flickr photostream (Click Here to go!)

Our Sanders fleet list is still undergoing a bit of maintenance, we have all the buses but the coach's fleet numbers are not identified!
