Stagecoach East has used its former 1966 Eastern Counties Bristol FLF (JAH552D) in service and is looking at similar ventures in the future.

The open top bus worked as a duplicate on route 505 on 21 August, operating the 1015hrs King’s Lynn to Spalding service before then working a relief to the 1157hrs departure from Spalding as far as Springfields. Around 45 passengers were carried on the journey to Spalding.
