Another Hedingham Olympian with Anglian is L372 R626MNU; noted on schools this afternoon. I don't know if it is instead of or aswell as L337 R279LGH

Thanks for the info! I reckon its as well as R279LGH because i believe Anglian are short of buses at the moment.

Can someone please clarify the current whereabouts/regular runs of V380 HGG pls? Remember when this bus was new up north - but it's been with Anglian ever since.

Not seen it on Beccles towns for about a year. It may be delicensed I shall check my photots on Monday from the 2012 depot visit. I have a feeling only AO02LVC and T400CBC are still licensed.

I imagine coming back from the Ipswich corridor of services, if my theory stands right there is a left turn about a mile before Kessingland which goes through Keeper's Wood & Ellough Grove which takes you straight to depot site.

Well that might make sense, we overtook it before then, but it sounds plausible

AU54ENY is now in AnglianBus livery. This can't leave much in the Anglian livery now

I had the impression that X386NNO was a beccles based bus, and A47 was a Rackheath route?

510 (X386 NNO) is based at Rackheath and is used on the Broadland High School contract during term time but is used on other routes from time to time and especially during school holidays! The A47 is a Rackheath route!  :)

Very True! Also between Broadland School routes it occasionally runs 123 Rackheath based route :)

If they are extending the 525 it will be deliberately running in competition with First. (I do hope the extend the route)

I think the accident was at the North Cove/Barnby junction as you pass there you can see the hedge has a big bus shaped hole in it thats where I was told it ended up as maybe the van pulled out but still vague on the proper details, mind you it did close the road and if memory serves got onto Radio 2 Traffic whoo fame at last lol
