I had photographed one of these in Melbourne with Dee Deckers Tours in August 2008.

TC390 is ex Plymouth PCT 230.
I now own this vehicle, it still has the 91A in the desto area at front.
I would really be interested in any info as to where this photo was definately taken? Was it All spares in WA?
Need info on what may have happened to this bus between 1984 in WA until around 2009.
If anybody can help would be much appreciated as we try to trace its history.
Kind Regards
Thanks

Hi Guys,

More queries,

Would anybody know how to see Centralians posting of photos of UK Atlanteans Tues July3 2007 please?
Apparently these may have been taken in Penrith c1984?

There are other photos posted later but these were apparently at Belmont All Spares in WA.

I am interested in seeing Centralians photos from Penrith please if anyone knows how to see these photos?

Regards

I have managed to reactivate the photos which were defined in an old format which is no longer supported by the board

Thankyou Fleet Lists.

That was quick!

I am a bit confused I think?

I noticed these photos further down and thought these were the photos that Centralian had listed but I noticed that MTT384 says that the photos were taken at AllSpares in Belmont WA?

Would you be able to confirm/clarify this for me please?
Kind Regards

To the best of my recollection from the prompts that were thrown at me on this post, I'm quite certain they were taken in Penrith. At the time I would just click anything of interest and not record any details. It was a yard on the eastern side of Castlereagh Rd, near the intersection with Andrews Rd (as it was back then). I suspect it was just being used as a storage yard for these particular vehicles at the time, and did not have a history of being a bus sales yard or anything like that. I also recall roughly around the same time there was a block of land in Andrews Rd not too far from this site, that had a number of dumped bus shells sitting there. These could have had some connection to Allspares over here in Sydney. Early to mid '80's sounds about right. Certainly not taken in WA.
