DSCF5935 Christiansen (Denmark) CW 94 029 working a Gislev Rejser tour
Friday 12 September 2014 (1403) - Volvo 9700 tri-axle coach CW 94 029 operated by a Danish coach operator (Christiansen - can anyone assist with more information regarding the company and where it is based? I couldn't get this information as I had quickly jumped out of my bus to grab this photograph!). It was working a seven day tour from Denmark to ‘York and Cambridge’ marketed by travel company Gislev Rejser. The tour departed Denmark on Sunday 7 September sailing from Esbjerg (DK) at 1845 by DFDS ferry arriving in Harwich (UK) at 1200 on Monday 8 September. The first overnight stay was in Cambridge. On Tuesday 9 September the tour moved on to York spending three nights there (Tuesday 9, Wednesday 10 and Thursday 11 September). On Friday 12 September the tour departed York travelling to Harwich - ‘via Nottingham and Colchester’ according to the brochure. The coach was seen here in Bury St. Edmunds bus station having called in for lunch on the way to Harwich. The DFDS ferry was scheduled to depart from Harwich at 1745 arriving in Esbjerg at 1300 on Saturday 13 September. Two pickup routes were offered for this tour. One covering towns in eastern Jutland operating from Aalborg (1115) in the extreme north travelling via Haverslev (1140), Hobro (1155), Randers (1225), Århus (1315), Skanderborg (1345), Horsens (1440), Vejle (1500), Skærup motorway service area (1520), Fredericia (1530), Kolding (1600) and Vamdrup (1610). A second line of route was offered from the island of Fyn originating at Rudkøbing (1240) travelling via Svendborg (1310), Kværndrup (1330), Gislev (1340), Ringe (1350), Odense town (1430), Odense motorway service area (1445) and Middelfart (1515). The two feeder routes would probably have merged at Vamdrup (1610).
