Norfolk Green : Fleet Additions ~ April 2011

As reported on Andy's Bus Blog, on local radio and in the press earlier today Norfolk Green will be taking over all of First's local bus services in and around King's Lynn from June 2011

In addition to the recently purchased ex Courtney Coaches Optare Solo YJ05XMT and the three more ex Reading Optare Spectras (YJ51ZVF/G & YG02FHD) in the process of delivery, Norfolk Green have purchased six ex Norse (Norwich Sprowston Park and Ride) Irisbus Agoralines for the increased number of services that will begin in June.

Details of the batch are as follows...
124 AU05FKB
125 AU05FKD
126 AU05FKE
127 AU05FKF
128 AU05FKG
129 AU05FKH

All of these fleet additions will bring the total number of Irisbus Agoralines in the fleet to 9 (the largest in the UK I believe) and the number of Optare Spectras in the fleet will also reach 9.
