And so after watching Borderbus's latest recruit being told how to drive a bus smaller than the ones he's been driving perfectly well for 15 years (funnier at the time than in print) my taxi to Moor Industrial Park was waiting at Worlingham. And there it was, at last, looking rather smart in the Beccles brightness.

Now many places have already published pics of the demonstrator, but that wasn't the only new arrival at Borderbus today. Arriving virtually together with the MMC was Borderbus's latest normal E200. A sister to BB11 BUS the new one, YX11 CSZ will be given the registration BB60 BUS. Like BB11 it will also have leather seats which are being prepared at the moment. She should be out in service next week, depending on the seats being delivered on time.

I must thank Andrew and the team for inviting me over to be there for the arrival and to go out on the test run. As always it was a joy to be there and I look forward to hearing what the drivers think of the MMC.
I was going to include a quite remarkable rail journey down to Kent that followed in this post but it's too late now and I'm exhausted so that can wait till tomorrow evening when I get back from hospital.
