The day started by going to Wickham Market for a funeral and I have to report that Gryffindor House aka Ipswich depot have done it again. With so many refurbished vehicles around now I was rather non plussed when on loan Wright Renown Volvo B10 60618 honed into view. I soon felt rather silly as I realised just what work the Ipswich boys have done on it. I can't pay a hgher tribute than to say if it popped home for a quick repaint before coning back to Ipswich as one of the fleet you'd hear no complaints from me. Warm, smooth, quiet, next to no rattles, well padded seats -what more do you ask from a bus? I'll be sorry to see it go.
