Norwich Photo: a fantastic Norwich Photograph Featuring Sanders 106 1120hrs Norwich to North Walsham 201119

Photograph Taken On Wednesday, November 20, 2019

My regular monthly lunch dates in Norwich now seem like a very distant memory, but in this shot, taken on a particularly gloomy November 2019 day, we see Sanders former Bus Vannin (Isle of Man Transport) East Lancs bodied VDL DB250LF type number 106 - PM03 EHU as it heads out of the Bus Station in Norwich with the above North Walsham bound service X55 journey. As from Saturday 16th January 2021, services 55/X55 reverted to the temporarily reduced timetable for the duration of the current Coronavirus related restrictions. This effectively sees the off peak number of journeys running each way cut to a two hourly frequency, although they continue to be a mix of 55s that divert from the B1150 in Coltishall village to serve Rectory Road & Westbourne Road and X55s which don’t. This vehicle was previously numbered 116 in the Sanders fleet, but following the arrival of three Scania Omnidekka types from Nottingham City Transport during July 2017, a partial renumbering of the double deck fleet took place.View image on Flickr
