Re: Torrens Transit Bustechs.

I like this new livery, much better than the dreaded all over white. Thanks for sharing, Inspector.

Re: Cumberland Coaches Leyland tiger cub.

I believe Centralian is on the money, my records show the same Cycles body number for m/o5802. I couldn't make the Commodore connection, however, Centralian has confirmed your bus I believe Bruce. I was crazy about information in the 60's and 70's, recording everything I could about all the Sydney p...

These official black and white press photos have an added impact. Love the N&W Leopard with the sample of passengers and showing the professional presentation of the driver.

Re: Bosnjak JBJ mo5115

4946 was selected to operate the new Route 300 Red Arrow service. It also had the Smithfield body alongside 4944, Western Road Transport's new Volvo B58, which also operated route 300. I think I may have transferred m/o599 onto 4946, as I was crazy about three digit plates!

There were five JBJ (John, Bob & Jim) chassis built with the Rolls Royce engine, all gas powered and fitted with Allison autos and Rockwell axles. The chassis were constructed in the Parramatta Bus Company's workshop in Church Street. 5115 had the Smithfield Bus & Coach Works body and was a demonstr...

Re: State Transit/UTA last green and cream livery overhaul?

On thing I most certainly can confirm is that Mk1 Leopard 3753 was the last new bus delivered to the DGT in the green and cream livery. It is currently been painted in ex Chullora overhaul PTC blue and cream.

Re: 1970's blue and cream livery question

Interesting to note that Mk1 Leopard 3753 still has the centre door lock mechanism fitted and air stop hand still in tact, although a new O/S panel covering it over. 3753 should emerge late this year in the PTC's blue and ivory livery.

I was lucky enough to be one of the passengers on the inaugural run from Goulburn to Thirlmere on the Saturday morning of the 28th. 6029 was marshaled in the lead, with 4403 and HL203 attached to the rear of the train. I was seated in the first FS carriage behind the...

Re: Maurie Griffin Collection: Silverline

Hi Geoff,

m/o 5135 was definately a Bedford VAL 14 with the Leyland 400 engine. It was my bus for around 12 months in the late eighties and was the best of the all the VAL's in my humble opinion. It sooo narrowly missed preservation, being sold unfortunately for mobile home use. :cry:

In 1960, the exposed radiator was covered up by a modern front completed by Cycles Components. Interestingly, I have the Albion Victor badge off this bus in my collection and on the back...

I think you could be right GM, as Albion m/o 111 was also a part of the Prowse fleet at Edensor Park and it was ex Red Transit. What a shame that plate was never retained. I tried on several occassions to secure that plate from the DMT, but as you know, it was impossible to get a withdrawn plate bac...

The Albion with the exposed radiator Leopard 071 is referring to was m/o 916 and was passed on to Bosnjak's after the purchase of the business from Cec Prowse in 1955. John Bosnjak never knew much about it, other than it was called the "bone shaker" due to it's uncomfortable ride characteristics. I'...
