New operator to start in Kings Lynn.

It seems the new Konectbus operations on the Norwich P&R are to use E400's - having passed some earlier on.
Presumably heading down from Falkirk, the vehicles had their plates on, but were using trade plates.
I don't envy that trip!

RE: East Anglia Bus Operations
Managed to have a look and sample of some buses in Norfolk during a recent work trip to the area.

Mainly based around Kings Lynn, I saw the First, Norfolk and Konectbus efforts.

Konect and First have E400's on their long distance routes.

Norfolk Green (who are off out on strike soon), have a mixture of local stuff and Inter Connect work out into Lincolnshire (Spalding). They also have some Solo's and Centro's on local work.
Noted a Spectra on the 505 IC service.

Managed to squeeze in a trip to the First depot, which lies just outside the centre of town.
Pretty dinky compared to some, it still retains the Eastern Counties lettering on the depot wall, presumably from the NBC days.

There was also some council run connect type services in some of the outlying villages.
