It would appear that Yarmouth depot now has two incrediby photogenic buses. THREE I mean three - sorry Chris and Danny! Not only is there 33423 which (I'm whispering this) might not now be repainted into X1 livery - not confirmed so no champaigne yet - but also now there is 59. I wasn't sure about it until I saw it in the flesh yesterday at James Paget. Not much makes me go wow these days but 59 did, and if she is kept in this condition will be turning heads for a long time. Must mention the driver who made sure I'd got my pic before driving off.

Finally for today while at Southwold this afternoon I finally got up close and personal to a coach from a company whose vehicles I've long admired. Kings Tours of Stanway, Essex, had one of their immaculate Van Hool T916 vehicles on a visit to the seaside town, and an extremely chatty and friendly driver let me have a look around. Quite simply it is spotless. Even the luggage compartments are carpeted! The legroom insiide was impressive, although I'm not sure I'd squeeze into the crew compartment these days! A quality coach and quality driver from what looks a quality company.

Tomorrow I will be posting hoping to start a debate comparing past and present, inspired by a Twitter conversation with an old friend earlier. Come back tomorrow to read and take part!
