The joy of being an enthusiast is you just don't know what is going to happen next. Although Twitter and the internet grapevine can be useful at times you really can't beat the pleasure of seeing something totally unexpected. This happened yesterday at Norwich when I saw an unidentified single decker entering the Bus Station. As it was Tuesday I just assumed it was a once a week shoppers special or something but the livery looked vaguely familiar. It was only when it pulled out I realised it belonged to Norse, and was operating on the 605 Sprowston Park And Ride. Not any old single decker but an Irisbus Agora to boot. Originally a demonstrator it's the first time I've seen her in service in Norwich. Nice!

Last week it was on loan back at Anglian, but now Optare Versa 306 is back at Konect, and back on it's usual 53 yesterday.

Now hands up those who think they know of every bus company in Ipswich. You sure? Honest? OK I thought I did too. Until today when I came across this rather smart looking VW with another number plate ending in BUS. JR Executive Travel are based in Copdock and I have never seen mention of them on any other blog so I guess this must be a first. Hang on does that make it an ......ahem.........EXCLUSIVE!!!!!!!! Anyway the company operate everything from taxis to 39 seater coaches, so I'm going to do some digging and will try to do a special on them in the next couple of weeks.
