I saw this same bus in a Field in South Nietta, Tasmania back in January 2006. It was then being converted to a House Bus.... but the Lady owner had not continued. I think her partner had passed away recently then. The bus is fitted with a pneumo-cyclic gear change unit that also opened the doors, m...

Thanks to pics supplied by 3 photographers over there, I have been able to drastically reduce the 'wanted list'.

The edited version is at the head of this Topic.

If you can assist with photos, that's a great help.

Many thanks

Hi. Just seen your message.... I remember doing some research on the AEC RP Reliance coaches back in about 2004 period.

Re: Ongoing 1 Photo Request 2018 - STA New Deliveries.

Your last sentence is correct and TSA are using their own fleet numbering system. There were some buses in the new bus range which went to STA and were transferred to TSA on 1st July, the same as older buses.

Re: Ongoing 1 Photo Request 2018 - STA New Deliveries.

5 October. I see buses transferred to Transit Systems are listed in BusAus Disposal Listing. Yes because they are no longer operated by STA. OK...so to further my understand of the implications of the transfers of the buses.....to Transit Systems.... Will that now mean with 2866-2862/2904-2912/2933...

Re: Fleet Numbers of STA / those not used - Plates etc

For 1001-1099 I heard that someone was assigned MO1001 and a few others before STA was. So STA skipped 1001-1099 and started the O405NH's at 1101 instead. Note: I can't confirm this, I just remember reading somewhere about this Rechecking my lists, I see that Second Series No 1000 was not used, it ...

Yes, because they were part of that fleet (just withdrawn from State Transit service rather earlier than would normally be the case :P )............And depending on your own personal rules for this collection, that may allow you to consolidate number ranges, too. (Depends on how you treat a continu...
