Special Post ~ Further Afield ~ Liam Contribution

Liam sent us this:

"On a cold Febuary morning, I visited Chichester and Bognor Regis. All these photos are my own and are copyrighted.

Once arrived, we settled into the bus station, and started taking photos. My first photo was of Chichester’s ADL Enviro 400 Fleet No.10008 (GX12 DXP) operating the 700 Coastliner to Felpham from Portsmouth. This bus has now reportedly been painted into the new Coastliner 700 livery, but not fully.

My next find was Chichester’s ADL Enviro 300 Fleet No.27742 (GX11 AKV) operating the 60 from Midhurst to Bognor Regis via Chichester.

I caught the 700 Coastliner to Bognor Regis. It was a lovely ride, despite some other youths on the top deck throwing sweets at people! Anyway, here is Chichester’s ADL Enviro 300 Fleet No.27655 (GX10 KZH) operating the 60 from Chichester to Bognor Regis

Next, after a spot of lunch and a wander around Bognor Regis, we caught the 700 back to Chichester, to photograph some more buses. Here is the newly introduced ADL Enviro 300 Fleet No.37271 (SL64 HXF) operating the 53 from the Witterings to Chichester.

Here is our next catch, Chichester’s Optare Solo Fleet No.47644 (GX58 GJO) operating the 50 from Chichester to Graylingwell. Rumour has it that this bus may be cascaded to Aldershot’s depot in the near future.

Here is the final photo worth mentioning, Chichester’s ADL Pointer 2 Dennis Dart SLF Fleet No.35252 (GX56 0GC) operating the 50 from Tangmere to Chichester. This bus is advertised in the route 55 branding however.

Overall, the trip was a lovely day out. As I am new to bus photography, these were my first few photos of buses, I think they came out rather well for a beginner. I would certainly recommend Chichester Bus Station as a photography point, as for rail enthusiasts, you have the West Coastway line running alongside, which provides a great spot for photographing various trains running along that line."

Thanks Liam! Great to see photos from Further Afield.
