That's a cryptic teaser, if ever I saw one!
TCD813? The reg of a Southdown Motor Services, Northern Counties bodied, Leyland Titan PD3/4 FH39/30F (popularly dubbed 'Queen Mary') from the late 50s.
There's all 'manor' of stuff on my Twitter A/c.

Am I right in thinking Ipswich Buses currently operate Ipswich Park and Ride and now it is returning back to First? It seems to alternate between the two providers.

There also appears to be a new or refreshed website coming http://www.ipswichparkandride.co.uk

Yes Martin you are correct, the Ipswich Park and Ride service is currently operated by Ipswich Buses and First Eastern Counties will be replacing them from July.

Over the years the service has been worked by both companies although I don't have a record of the different dates myself.

The present Ipswich Buses leaflet taken from the website today (dated June 2014) is attached.
