Stagecoach FLF on tour in North West Norfolk - bumper photo special!

A special enthusiasts open top bus tour organised by Steven Knight Media with the help of Stagecoach took place in North West Norfolk on Saturday 2nd August, the tour which operated from Peterborough and visited King's Lynn (including a visit to the NG depot) Hunstanton and Wells-Next-The-Sea as well as a number of other locations for photo stops en-route was operated by Stagecoach's wonderful Bristol FLF 19952 JAH 552D which is based at the companies Peterborough depot and was new to Eastern Counties 48 years ago.

Unfortunately we couldn't make it to the event due to being away for the weekend, however our regular correspondent Colin Apps who was navigator for the tour (which took place on a day of varying weather conditions!) has kindly supplied us with a fantastic selection of photographs from the day to share with you...
