Anglianbus Adventures - photo special!

One of our regular correspondants Damon Powell was on holiday in Norfolk last week and spent a couple of days exploring the Anglianbus network before their major service changes take place next week, as well as sampling a wide selection of their services he also took the chance to take an interesting selection of photographs of their vehicles at various locations in Norfolk & Suffolk - enjoy!


The first photo shows smart MAN EcoCity gas bus 110 AU13 FBJ passing through Loddon (a small market town between Norwich and Beccles) on the 146 service between Norwich & Lowestoft © Damon Powell


Next up we see another of Anglian's fleet of thirteen MAN EcoCity gas buses - 101 WX62 HGU which is pictured arriving at Beccles, Old Market on service 146 between Lowestoft & Norwich © Damon Powell.


The second former Konectbus Optare Excel 2 freshly repainted into the new Anglianbus livery - 216 W216 PRB is seen here at Kessingland waiting time before departing for its next run on service 601A to Pleasurewood Hills © Damon Powell.


Pictured in Acle we see one of five Scania Omnilinks added to the fleet back in 2011 - 454 YT11 LVF, it is seen working on the X47 service between Norwich and Great Yarmouth/Gorleston © Damon Powell.


Elsewhere, at Castle Meadow in Norwich this photo shows Wrightbus Streetlite 350 MX60 BWH working on the A47 service to Great Yarmouth & Gorleston - this was the first Streetlite to enter service in the UK © Damon Powell.


The penultimate photo in this selection, also taken at Castle Meadow in Norwich, shows former Brighton & Hove East Lancs Lolyne bodied Dennis Trident 711 T811 RFG working on service 121 between Eaton and Norwich railway station © Damon Powell.


We finish with this interesting photo showing Optare Solo 960 AU58 AKK on the twice-a-day 005 service, it is seen passing the the Adam & Eve public house in the Norwich suburb of Bishopgate © Damon Powell.
