So I headed off to Bungay only to see the Diss connection leave as we pulled up. It seems I was lucky last week as scrutiny of the timetables told me the Diss service is timed to leave one minute before the service from Halesworth arrives. Someone was paid for doing that, and today both services werre bang on time.
So plan B involved getting to Norwich then train to Thetford. However, thanks to those considerate chaps from the gas there were temporary lights in Red Lion St, close to Castle Meadow and chaos reigned supreme. It took 35 mins to get from the Bus Station to the Rail Station so missed the connection to Thetford.
Plan C was get the Short Set to Yarmouth as I haven't been on it for ages. I enquired if it was out only to be told 47810 had just spat out all it's water and it was put to bed for the day.
So I went back to the Castle and took some pictures of the bus jams!

I have been asked to publicise the Norwich Running Day on the 22nd March, which I, and I think the entire East Anglian enthusiast community will be attending. Should be a great day and look forward to seeing everyone.
