Simonds 85/86 Update

It's been a while since it was announced that Simonds of Botesdale would be taking over Anglian's route 85 which operates between Norwich and Loddon, and their 86 which runs from the City to Haddiscoe.

It's been widely discussed as to what buses Simonds would use to operate the service. It was questioned whether they have enough buses to run it with their current fleet or if they would have to acquire a couple of Anglian's vehicles, but I can now confirm that they will operate the services with their own vehicles. Although there aren't any official allocations as of yet, they're most likely to be ran by their two 11 registered Enviro200s.

Thanks to Simonds for the info.

Timetables for revised services are now on their website. Click here to see the 85, or here for the 86.
