Norwich rail replacement services 16th/17th March - part 1

This weekend has seen a large railway replacement operation taking place in Norwich as coaches replace trains between the city and Ipswich, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and Sheringham as well as satellite services between Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds due to engineering works.

Kieran Smith was on hand to photograph some of the interesting variety of coaches from both local operators as well as some from further afield, all of the photographs included in this post were kindly supplied by and are © Kieran Smith.
