Lowestoft Today

Really quiet on the bus front at the moment so apologies for the lack of posts. Anyway I went to Lowestoft today - no not for another hat - and took the opportunity to photograph the two Regal buses operating the rail replacement service between Lowestoft and Beccles. According to the notice on the station door trains are expected to resume on Wednesday (18th) so only one more day for Regal.

Rear of Regal 802. Just liked the train symbol!
 I also saw First 20515 returning to Lowestoft on an X2. Was hoping to get a better pic on its next journey but it was replaced with 30900 so this will have to do. Note the rather shoddy X2 bit of paper in the windscreen.

Finally if anyone wants to ride Anglian's Dennis tridents, and let's face it who wouldn't, then route 60 is the one to catch them on. Here is 711 heading towards Beccles

  1. It amazes me that Regal, based near my home town of Chelmsford send their buses some 100 miles north daily, they're either desperate for the replacement contract or it's really lucrative!

  2. I admit it does seem odd, so I would guess the latter.
