Agree to a point, they are not going to repaint the Spectra's or the 53 plate Solo's, but still cant get my head round why repaint the Enviro 300s when they still have the Enviro 400s to do not to mention the 56, 57, 58 and 10 plate Tempo's that are still in the original NG livery

That's what makes me think the 300s are on the move in the new year

Maybe not, one was parked at the bus station today in Lynn, also reading the other thread for Cambridgeshire that there is a delay in the Volvo's for the guided busway until the New Year, this might delay the transfer of the tridents

Went to Hunstanton on the 11 a few days ago on one of the tridents and the window on the top deck was smashed at the front, presume it will have or is now off the road waiting replacement

Just to add that the Norfolk Green website now appears unavailable - probably closed

Still working and upto date

http://www.norfolkgreen.co.uk/?v=web

For some time though fares have been removed and some of the timetables are not upto date whilst others are

The new Stagecoach site looks impressive but its a challenge on a mobile device though

Hopefully they will do something with the coasthopper site, that is very poor in content and appearance, compared to the one for the railway of the bittern line, it seems to be more upto date with local events between Norwich and Sheringham and more offers from local businesses for using the service
