Obviously the Short Set has been grabbing all the attention this week, with the Class 37's making a spectacular entrance. That maybe a recurrng theme throughout the Summer. I make no apology for publishing this pic again as it's up there with the best I've ever taken!
|No description needed|
In Ipswich the 53 is being reduced to every 15 mins, which will reduce the PVR by one, thus releasing another vehicle to be transfered elsewhere. Which vehicle and type is still undecided and again as soon as I hear anything else I'll publish it.
The most interesting news of the week has come from Konect. The 20 new vehicles have been confirmed as bog standard AD E400's, not MMC's sadly. These buses will be used on Park & Ride and the 8. Interestingly the 8 is going to receive a new Express livery so that will be worth waiting for. The current E400's on the 8 will be rebranded for the 2 with the current P&R E400's replacing the Geminis in the current fleet which look likely to move to Hedingham to replace the Olympians. September is going to be an interesting month at Konect. My thanks to my contact at Konect for the information.
Nothing else of great note springs to mind except the revamped Kings Lynn Bus Station is nearing completion. I admit I have been avoiding it while it has been rebuilt, but I'll be catching up with all things Stagecoach Norfolk and Lynx once the Bus Station is open again.
I must thank Cameron for writing yesterday's post, and if anyone else wants to write posts feel free to contact me and you can join the team! Have a good week.
PS here's a trivia question for you - answer next week unless someone gets the answer before - when Maida Vale Underground Station opened in 1915 what was unique about it?
