Vehicles acquired from Norwich Omnibus Company Ltd

A total of 23 vehicles were acquired from this operator which was taken over by Eastern Counties in December of 1935. These comprised two 52 seat Park Royal bodied AEC Regent 1 double deck buses new in 1931; two 30 seat Bristol bodied Bristol BGW saloons new in 1928; six 31 and 32 seat Eaton bodied Bristol BGW saloons new in 1930; five 56 seat ECOC bodied Leyland TD1 saloons new in 1928 and 1929 and eight 48 seat Weymann bodied Bristol GJW double deck buses new in 1933.

Worthy of note here is that LG4 and LG6 were converted to open top in 1950 for summer holiday season use along the sea front in Felixstowe. They were painted all over cream with black wheels and wings, gold fleet names and between decks publicity lettering and remained in annual seasonal service until they were replaced with a pair of 1940 vintage former Brighton, Hove & District open topped Bristol K5Gs in 1961. It is pleasing to know that LG4 (later HLG4 and then HLG496) survives in preservation and has recently undergone a superb restoration in open topped form by its current owner, who went to great lengths to repatriate the vehicle in 2000 from California in the United States of America, where it had been exported in 1962.
