With Sam's post already underneath this, it's been an amazing day for NBP readers already, but here's just a little more bus news and pictures from today! Today, I visited the AnglianBus Depot, First Lowestoft Depot, Ambassador Travel Depot and Eurosun Coaches depot aswell as a quick visit to Lowestoft town centre. I am able to share a few of my pictures, but not all as I managed to take over 75 decent pictures.
Next, I headed into Lowestoft. Obviously, to the town centre bus station and First Lowestoft depot. At the depot I was lucky enough to catch the rear end of 30901, which has been newly repainted. Back in the centre of Lowestoft, I photographed similar vehicle 32655 on the 1A even though it is branded for the X2.
My fourth stop was just a few minutes away from the town centre; this time being Eurosun Coaches. Here I saw two newer coaches, which were King Long XMQ6127's, one of which was in Sunrise Direct Holidays livery (BX08 FAJ).. The other was in plain white, with a Eurosun fleetname on the front window (BX59 KWR). Also among the seven or eight vehicles in the fleet was Neoplan Cityliner NUI 5125, which a friendly chap who lives in a caravan on the site informed me had slid on an oil spillage from another road traffic accident and crashed into the rear end of a truck. Last but not least was Ambassador Travel, where I stood on the path which runs alongside it as I've heard they don't tend to let enthusiasts in. Nonetheless, I managed to get a picture of the rear end of what I believe to be a new acquisition, which is a Mercedes Benz Sprinter registered W892 MKU, which can be seen in the photo to the left.
Wow, what a great day it has been, not only in terms of the weather! As normal, loads more of my photos are available on my flickr photostream.
