The return to East Anglia part 3 Lowestoft featuring some Buses in Barbie colours

This one was a bit of a challenge for me trying to narrow photos down the best I can as well as photographing Border Bus and Konect Bus is Great Yarmouth and Norwich as well as First group, I also photographed Buses in Lowestoft which was my main base for the trip. 

This post features some odd workings and Buses still in Barbie which feature alongside the Buses in the current Olympia colours and a E200 with a black front. 

The order for this post will be Buses from the Tuesday first and the last morning before coming home second. 

Gemini 37568 (AU58 ECJ) departing the Bus station. 

Swinging around the bend on a Single-Decker working of route X22 is E200 44531 (SN62 AZW).

The E200 I didn't photograph on my previous visit 44532 (SN62 DBO) also swings around the bend on the 103.

Still going in Barbie is Gemini 32629 (KP54 KAX).

Gemini 37563 (AU58 ECA) departs the Bus station on the X2.
Still the same with its black front is E200 44517 (YX09 ACY).

It always seems to be difficult to get a photo of Gemini 37579 (AU58 EDK) but I succeeded this time here it departs the Bus station. 

One of the Great Yarmouth Geminis departs on the 1. 

What was my Bus back on the day I went to Norwich, Gemini 37571 (AU58 ECV) departs the Bus station on the X2.

Another Gemini swings around the bend I believe it had not in service on the blinds I gather it was either on the X2 or X22.

It would be so bad to leave posh Buses out here is Excel E400 33821 (YX63 LKL) departing on the X1.

Another Excel E400 this time 33820 (YX63 LKK) arrives on the X1.

Also still in Barbie, is Gemini 37141 (SN57 HDA) here it swings around the bend. 

One of the ALX400s departs the Bus station on the 99. 
It was a really good week for photos last week.

The return to East Anglia part 2 Norwich

The City of Norwich is one of the places I visit every time I go to East Anglia for a holiday as there is plenty of operators in the city. Konect Bus fleet members were my main focus of the visit as that was the only place I could get to where they operate. It was also to try and photograph a few E200s which joined the Konect Bus fleet ages ago which came from other Go-Ahead group members. On that note, I proved successful in taking photos of the E200s I won't say old E200s as the 10 plate one isn't old it's a similar age to the Stagecoach ones in Hastings and the 2 in this post are both mini E200s or baby E200s.  

Previously with Thames Travel looking at the colours is a Konect E200 resting in Norwich City Centre.

Something older than the 10 plate is this E200 which wears a distinctive red livery is this example.

Yellow line is added to the collection of the coloured lines I have photos of is of this Eclipse. 

No stranger to the camera in Norwich as I photographed it on my previous trip is this 636 (SN65 OAV) and it's off route again!

B9TL Gemini 2 36270 is seen on the 14. 

My previous Purple line photo was of a Trident President this time it's of a Volvo example with the same body.

The return to East Anglia part 1 Great Yarmouth

Following my trip late May into the start of June this year I did another trip going to the same places. This time, I've decided to do it in a different order which isn't the same as my previous order. Buses featured in this post weren't featured in my other post back in June so there are some different Buses. The first post is Great Yarmouth pictures on a sunny Monday afternoon I revisited the area on the Friday however, the weather ruined the photos then.

Gemini 2 36186 (BN12 JYJ) is seen working the X1 service here it loads for the city of Norwich .

Still in full X1 branding after the Western side became the XL and the Eastern side remained as the X1 is Gemini 37573 AU58 ECX here it is on an X11 a route which uses the same Buses as the X1.

Photographed on the X11 is former demo Enviro400 33423 (SN60 CAA) the bus would become restricted to town routes temporarily later on in the week.

The oldest Gemini in the First Eastern Counties fleet at the start of the week.

One of the purposes of my trip was to get another photo of a Border Bus to join my photo of 107 (BB12 BUS) from the last visit here is older 105 (BB07 BUS).

Part 2 will be either Buses in Lowestoft or Norwich.
