First's 3 Recommences

Evening ladies and gents, I'm back!

Today saw the reintroduction of FirstGreat Yarmouth's summer route 3! With a frequency of one bus an hour until July (which increases to every thirty minutes until August before going back to hourly), the service connects Great Yarmouth train station and Hemsby beach via Vauxhall Holiday Park, Market Gates, HollyWood Cinema, Seashore Haven, Caister-on-Sea, Scratby, and Newport. Previously, this route has seen the likes of anything from Darts (now withdrawn or in Essex) & Postwick Park & Ride liveried Volvo B7s (now at Ipswich) to Presidents, Routemasters, ALX400s and even the beloved Enviro400 33423 SN60CAA. 

Unfortunately, I had other 'duties' to attend today, so I wasn't able to take any photos. However, unknown to me, fellow admin Zak was in Great Yarmouth today and he's informed me that he managed to photograph both buses which operated the route on it's first day back.

FirstNorwich 36178 BD11CDX is on loan to Yarmouth at the moment, due to Radio 1 Big Weekend duties
