Fleet Update ~ FirstBus

I'd like to inform you that following the previous delays around the Ipswich area on the railway, AbellioGreaterAnglia have taken the decision to hire four coaches as part of a five week contract from First, although 2 of the buses are yet to transfer.

20514 WV02EUP and 20515 WV02EUR are two of the buses to be used. Hired from the Norwich depot, they are both Plaxton paragons previously operating for National Express & Ex-FirstGreatYarmouth. 20514 is currently unavailable as she's at her MOT so 37562 FJ08FYN, a Volvo Gemini, has stepped in.

Earlier we were informed by First's twitter that the other two buses are both transferring from Southampton. They are Scania Irizar PB coaches:
23312 YN54NYT and 23314 YN54NYV.

The coaches will be on general standby from 0600 until around midnight and will be dispatched from Ipswich rail station forecourt if needed.

Other Train Stations, Including Witham & Colchester, also have buses on standby, but from different operators.
