Ipswich Loans History Part Two

Part One of  this series proved highly popular - click here if you missed it - so here is the next installment of buses loaned to Ipswich Buses over the years, courtesy of Bryan Dickson's photo collection.

We start with this Volvo B6LE Wright |Crusader M918 MRW from February 1996

1996 was a busy year for loan vehicles, and another vehicle to make two appearnces is this Optare Excel L1000 N399 EUG which was on loan in April and September 1996

Fast forwarding a few years now and in November 2009 you could have spotted this Alexander Dennis E200 demonstrator rattling through the streets of Ipswich.

Finally for this part here is Alexander Dennis Enviro 400 Hybrid SN59 AWW entering Tower Ramparts in May 2011. My thanks to Bryan for supplying the pics, and hopefully there will be a Part Three soon.
