20102 on holiday...

First Eastern Counties Volvo B10M/Plaxton Premiere 20102 N602APU which can normally be found in Ipswich where it operates a school contract, however it has been moved to Lowestoft for the school holidays to provide cover should there be any vehicle shortages...

...and low and behold it has been put into use on the X1 between Lowestoft and Peterborough, it made its premiere (if you pardon the pun:-D) on the route on Monday and was still hard at work yesterday when I was in King's Lynn meeting up with friend and fellow enthusiast Adam Dowling

The vehicle didn't sound very healthy when we saw it with screaming fan belts, also note the orange light beacon on the roof from its days allocated to Stansted Airport.
