Just visiting.

Being a popular sea side resort, Great Yarmouth inevitably drew many tourists, huge proportions of which used to arrive by public transport, and particularly by coach. On busy days, the former M&GNR railway station which latterly served as a coach park, was packed. This visitor, a Duple Dominant II Express bodied Leyland Leopard was from the erstwhile Grey Green fleet who were to be a seed from which the modern day Arriva group grew. EYH 808V, driven by a driver with big hair, appears to have suffered some kind of mishap as it has a broken destination blind glass. The films on offer at the theatre to the rear of the bus help date the picture. I thought that the one entitled 'Insatiable ... lust' was something of a documentary for enthusiasts of the town's AEC Swifts, but I was sadly mistaken :-(
