New X1 ADL Enviro400s in service - photo special

The first batch of First's new Alexander Dennis Enviro400s for the X1 service between Peterborough and Lowestoft entered service on Monday, we were out in King's Lynn and Peterborough with friend and regular correspondant David Bell to photograph and sample the new buses on their first day in service.

In total 9 out of the 22 buses due were in service providing plenty of photo opportunities on the route, included in this post are a selection of photographs taken in various locations on both Monday and Tuesday of this week.
