Ex X1 Geminis in service in Great Yarmouth - photo special!

As previously reported both here and elsewhere, following the introduction of a brand new fleet of Alexander Dennis Enviro400s on First's X1 route between Peterborough and Lowestoft the route's old buses - seventeen 58' reg Wrightbus Eclipse Gemini bodied Volvo B9TL's have moved East to Great Yarmouth & Lowestoft.

David Bell visited Great Yarmouth a few weeks back and has kindly sent a selection of photographs of a selection of the aforementioned buses working on various local routes including X1 shorts, the 1/1A and the 8 - they can also be found on the X2 between Lowestoft, Beccles and Norwich.
