Going back to Wednesday in Ipswich and before the cleaning demonstration I spent a rather cold afternoon seeing what was going on. First up is the vehicle that caused all the commotion back in 2014 when it became the first Ipswich vehicle to get the leather treatment and was the source of much clamour to get pics. Now 69005 has been given its paint job too, and rather conveniently was parked up when I arrived at Old Cattle Market.

Also present was Ipswich Buses' E300 83 which was on the 98 to Shotley. I still haven't been on this bus and really should as I'm told it's not bad at all.

It was noticeable in Norwich just how more dirty the buses were than the spotless ones I had seen in Ipswich the previous day, and I took a couple of pics to illustrate that point. However, as it seems that telling the truth is a risky business around here I have decided not to publish them, so I caught Gemini 37574 over to Yarmouth hoping to spot the 3 ex Norwich B7's recently transferred there.
And I did - all 3 of them - but the pics are so attrocious I won't insult your eyes by putting them up, so instead as reported elsewhere ex Leicester Gemini 32629 was on the X1 yesterday, and here it is leading an unusual line up with on loan B10BLE 60618 behind, and unusually for the 61 Anglian Scania Omnicity 458
