Anglian Happenings 2012
« on: January 02, 2012, 10:20:45 PM »
This is a new format of note pages, for general day-to-day sightings, run-of-the-mill daily observations, and even the more unusual strays spotted in daily operation.

Open up a separate thread for service changes, and major announcements (i.e. PI callings, new ownership, cessation of operations, that kind of thing!)

This thread shall continue throughout 2012, but Admins reserve the right to cut one and start again if there are more than 250 postings in one particular thread, or if there is an argument or serious off-topic problems etc.

Enjoy!

Not sure just looked on the timetable dated April 2012 assuming it started yesterday. The timetables are listed on the Anglian website.

It is a Scania OmniCity d/d  YT11 LSE,  the bus that has been doing the rounds of GoAhead companies,  eg Bluestar, Brighton&Hove and most recently Metrobus.  It is one of three Polish built d.ds that are loaned to operators while their own Scanias are on warranty work.

I don't suppose there's any chance of it doing Rackheath services.
