Fleet Update ~ FirstGreat Yarmouth

Once again, I must apologise for the one week gap between posts. I'm not going to make an excuse, because you are all probably aware of the reason why I am finding less and less time to write. 

It has been reported that alongside two as yet unidentified Volvo B9TL Wright Eclipse Geminis, First's Alexander Dennis Enviro400 33423 SN60CAA will soon be repainted into the express versions of First's coorperate livery. This is the same paintjob worn by the twenty-two buses which were purchased last year to operate the X1 between Peterborough and Lowestoft. This news has been met with dismay amongst many enthusiasts and bloggers alike and I feel that I must share the same opinion. Unfortunately First have assured me that no matter what we do, we won't be able to change their mind! The decision means that less and less standard liveried vehicles will be seen along the route which will improve the public image of the route, aswell as increasing passengers confidence when catching the X1 as the livery is easily recognised. 

We want your photos! If you have a photo of 33423 that you are particularly proud of, please do email it to where it will be featured in a photo special memorial of the 'most photogenic bus' in East Anglia.
