He was showing me the Anglian map, which I'd like to reproduce but don't appear to be able to - you can see it by clicking here - and pointed out that there was a triangle with a missing side - between Harleston and Halesworth. His theory was that the 88A from Southwold to Halesworth could be extended to Harleston, thus proviiding another cross Suffolk link with onward connections to Diss, and would relieve pressure on the 88 improving timekeeping too if it started terminating at Halesworth again. I obviously have my own theories on this, but would like you good people to give some feedback and what route you would take it.
No pics of the new routes but after all those pics in the 62 tribute slideshow of Anglian 100, by coincidence I had the same vehicle to Southwold yesterday, and battling the hurricane winds (or so it felt), I did get this pic. I will attempt to get pics of the new services as and when I can.

On a much more serious note I heard today about an Ipswich Buses driver being badly assaulted yesterday. Initial reports suggested it had been a row over a pushchair but after contacting Ipswich Buses it transpires that a driver on the Shotley route was assaulted by a cyclist and this afternoon was still in hospital. Thoughts go to the driver and his family and SB&TP wishes him a full and speedy recovery. I understand the police are investigating and hope if found guilty the cyclist gets the book thrown at him.
