Fleet update: First Norwich/Great Yarmouth

Following up on my post from the other day regarding Norwich's three new Tridents, as reported by the East Norfolk Bus Blog, it has now emerged that these three vehicles (being T-plate Euro 2s) will not be able to operate with First Norwich due to a emissions limit in force in Norwich city centre.

As a result, the three loanees from Southampton (32801 - T801LLC, 32809 - T809LLC and 32849 - T849LLC) have all transferred to Great Yarmouth where they will remain on loan from Southampton until Christmas. They will still operate the Bernard Matthews contract from here; the Norwich low-emission zone simply meant that they couldn't be used on city services at other times, hence their departure.

Going the other way from Great Yarmouth to Norwich for the time being are a pair of slightly newer Dennis Trident/Plaxton Presidents, 32212 (LT52WTV) and 32214 (LT52WTX). These are both painted in standard Barbie livery. This arrangement is again expected to last until Christmas.
