Nothing to report on the X1, as actually there are less X1's at Lowestoft now than there were, with two journeys an hour from Norwich now terminating at James Paget Hospital. However the X2 is now rather more interesting.
Generally speaking thee are 4 buses an hour from Lowestoft to Norwich - two X2's which operate the usual route within Lowestoft but now go fast to Norwich via Beccles omitting North Cove, Hales, Loddon and Chedgrave. By lucky chance the first vehicle I saw on the new fast X2 was Gemini 37575, which only transferred over from Yarmouth yesterday, and still carries Yarmouth vinyls. Incidentally sister 37577, also transferred from Yarmouth, has had its vinyls removed so naturally was on the X1 via Yarmouth!

Switching operators for a second a new route in Lowestoft is the 60J, which operates 3 journeys to James Paget Hospital via Lound and Blundeston, replacing the recently withdrawn 60. Today Anglian Optare Versa 308 was on the route and I believe this to be the first published pic of a 60J.
