|513 in some rare wintry weather for Norfolk|
March was fairly uneventful; or maybe I just missed everything due to a mini bus-spotting break in Yorkshire but either way only a handful of sightings make it to this months Rare Spots post.
The first is another Konectbus on loan to sister company Anglian. Joining Solo 901 VX51RJZ is Volvo B7TL Wright Eclipse-Gemini 513 LB02YXE which is sighted here on the seventh of March in Trowse operating the 88 towards Norwich. This isn't up to my usual standard of photos but I was on my bicycle at the time and had to pull over, then scramble around in my pockets to get my phone out and hope for the best. I wasn't too upset with the result! Steve W also spotted 513 and posted a picture of it at the time on his blog.
|952 at Norwich Bus Station|
Sticking with Konect, and now back from my break in Yorkshire, on the 23rd of March I sighted ex-Anglian slimline Solo 952 AO57BDY pulling into the bus station about to operate service 6 to that place that people who aren't from Norfolk can't say properly. The 3 and 6 services have a fleet of specially branded Alexander Dennis Enviro400s which are used daily and are rarely unusable. 952 transferred from Anglian back in January 2014 to coincide with extra vehicles being needed once Konect took over their inner-city routes.
