other norfolk green news is Solo 617 is earmarked to become the regular 'absolutely!' bus for the new Ely city service that starts on 13 Feb.  this bus is named Ben Gimbert who was awarded the George cross  after risking his life to save others in the Soham rail disaster where he died . if you ask me that seems like the best bus to be put in Ely with the local  legends name on .
