EYMS Volvo B9TL/Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 YX09GWM (765) seen in North Dalton on the 12:35 Bridlington-York 45.

This is one of three of this batch of ten now based at Driffield following four initial years of operation from Hull. The splitting of services 121 and 744 (now 45/6) has facilitated their usage on longer distance services and as such this particular example has now gained rather uninspired branding for the 45/6. The rather more low spec Pocklington B7 701 has received the same branding which doesn't really sit well on EY's traditional livery.

With it being a Sunday, this vehicle would operate all 45s at a frequency of roughly a bus every four hours, this being complimented on the Pocklington to York stretch by several 46s worked by a Pocklington vehicle. The usual practice regarding the blind involves displaying "connecting for" at split points however, perhaps confusingly for passengers, 765 was displaying merely "Pocklington", despite continuing to York.

Ta to the driver for slowing down.

A week tomorrow if all goes to plan Phil, it might end up been some point in the week after though. You've got me for a year then!

I got a shot of DW in February here: www.ipernity.com/doc/myfirstcamera/16572895. Wouldn't mind doing it again though as it was very dull that day, Brackenfield Green does look very attractive in the summer too!
