Not strange at all. I have a few STA ones here to start us off.

Image
STA Mk II Mercedes 0305 No. 2308 dashboard

Image
Mk II 2424 looks a little different - with a new speedo and textured black coating

Image
Mk III 2621 dashboard

Image
Mk IV 2801 dashboard (no close-up, sorry)

Image
An unknown STA Mk V dashboard
Is it the truth, or did you hear it from the truth engineer?

I think it originally had its Merc Star on the centre of the wheel but someone pinched it when CaptainCH wasn't looking. Will ask him to confirm that.

Is there a reason no STA buses have a logo in the middle? Really detracts from the look of the bus.

They don't last very long! Although some depots are worse than others

I can remember as a schoolkid that the centre of an O305 steering wheel made for a good ash tray :roll:

Sniffle, sniffle :cry:

Re missing steering wheel centres, PATH make their own replacements - as can be seen in actually's photo of 517's dash. Also, replacements are made for the padded area in the Renault steering wheels.

everywhere, you're not alone obviously in wanting dash photos. I just wish that someone with similar interests took photos of now long-withdrawn buses.

With regard to the removal of Merc stars from the centre of steering wheels, I had been meaning to start a topic on that. There is not a single 0305 at Ryde which still has its star - all have been pinched as souvenirs. About 2/3 of our 0405 / gas bus steering wheels still have their merc star, it is just bad luck that the ones I happened to photograph were missing.

By contrast, I have noticed that other depots' buses still have their 0305 Merc stars. I have seen them on some of the 0305 bendies and once on a Brookvale Mk IV, and I know Leichhardt's 2643 has its intact. I suspect there are others?

I agree that they make the wheel and dashboard area look quite smart, and without them just looks poorly looked after.

Actually mercedes from my experience with O405's, and specially on hot days, if he has used the retarders to pull up for a decent period of time, say like 15 secods or 20 or more, the gearbox temp guage in them always shoots up, and then goes down once u start accelerating again... assuming he has taken the photos almost straight after he has pulled up.

At a guess, they would be Volgren bodied? And they would be Grenda Group buses.

Were they the original steering wheels though? I know that some depots started to install a new type of wheel with a much smaller centre than the traditional O305 wheel, this had the star in the middle which doesn't come off :wink: they have a soft texture apparently....

I recall taking this photograph quite some time after I pulled up. I took a photo of the outside, and several of the interior before snapping the dashboard, so it would have been at least 5 minutes. And yes, I know the gearbox should have been in neutral but obviously I forgot. I didn't even notice the gauge was so high :-S
