King's Lynn today - green day!

It was the first day of Norfolk Green's expanded network of services in King's Lynn & Hunstanton today, being a Sunday not all of the routes were running and frequencies are lower so tomorrow is going to be the best day to see the new network.

Services got off to a flying start today with Hunstanton 11 services being worked by Optare Tempo's 103/4 YJ57YCC/YCD and Irisbus Agoraline's 122/3 OY53RFF/RDV. Heritage vehicles RLE864, RS658 and LDK229 operated relief journeys on the (4)11 and proved very popular with passengers.

Town services (Fairstead One, North Lynn Too and North Wootton Three) were worked by a variety of Optare Solo's including freshly repainted 611 X249VWR, newley aquired 624 YJ59GGO and 606 YN03NCV amongst others.
