The latest batch of new buses will initially launch with the standard Anglianbus livery due to operational requirements, a further update with more news on the special liveries is expected in the next few weeks.

They join six other examples which were the first of their type in service in the UK when they launched on the 146 between Norwich, Beccles and Lowestoft in early December.

Three more MAN EcoCity gas buses are due soon to complete the batch of thirteen expected, we will of course bring you further details on these and which route they will be allocated to as soon as it is available!

Many thanks to Anglianbus for their help with the information included in this post, and to Zak Nelson for photographs of 607/9 in service on route 601 today.
