Today saw a fitting Tribute take place to Jim Long, a good friend and regular contributor to the blog who passed away suddenly a year ago. Jim was a loyal Eastern Counties Enthusiast and was always around the town of Ipswich armed with his camera to record the latest happenings, we built up a great friendship and shared many photographs and met regularly for a drink and a catch up. Jim's wife Eve and his family decided to donate his photo collection to the Ipswich Transport Museum and today saw a fitting gesture from Eastern Counties, Heritage liveried 32479 (AU53HJV) was today named after Jim at the museum and he will be fondly remembered around the town.
