Fleet Update ~ FirstNorwich

Four ex-X1 Volvo B7TL Wright Eclipse Geminis arrived at FirstNorwich today, two of which will be stored awaiting collection by FirstPotteries. The other two will be used as extra relief services on the Blue Line. The two buses will be used betwen 0815 and 1800 between the UEA and City Centre only. The buses in question are 37156 AU07DXS and 37158 AU07DXV. 

Thanks to the Operations Manager at FirstNorwich; Chris Speed for supplying us with this info.

Remember nine new X1 buses will be entering service tomorrow, and we want your pictures to feature in a special report! email them to


  1. The two new liveried ex-X1 Volvo B7TL Wright Eclipse Geminis were indeed out and about in Norwich this morning. The new XI Enviros look much smarter in the flesh than the photos I had seen of them... I saw several of them. I particularly like the white LED destination display... very clear and striking. Looking forward to having a trip on one soon. Michael

  2. Hi Michael! I myself am particularly looking forward to a first look at the new Enviros tomorrow! I believe 37156 and 37158 were out in service today, as 37159 and 37160 were present at Roundtree Way this afternoon. Pictures on my Flickr :)

  3. Saw both 37156 and 37158 yesterday as well. Managed to catch 33803 into the city yesterday. Very comfortable and plenty of leg room. Looking forward to many more journeys on these buses. John
