Some more of Pioneer's day tour and over snow fleet.


MO 4469 Tucker (now that's a name you don't see very often)named Hep Cat. A Don Allitt Photo. The other Tucker vehicles i know they had were MO 779 (Bob Cat), MO 785, and MO 822 (Tiger Cat). The larger over snow vehicle that Centralian featured was a Nodwell and the redgos i have for them were MO 749 (Snow Fox) and MO 4657 although they may have been the same vehicle as they were seen at different times.


MO 4224 Bedford Ansair at Cooma.

MO 4554 Leyland Royal Tiger Ansair.


MO 736 Leyland Royal Tiger. A Don Allitt Photo.

G'day All,

Apologies for bringing up an old post, however I am interested in the content here (which I can't see). I have set up a small website trying to detail some of the history of Australian Oversnow Transport, and am short on information/pictures on both the Nodwells and Tuckers. Red & Cream (or anyone else who might be able to help), would you mind contacting me in this regard?

I know it's not buses however if you're interested, my site is at:

http://australianalpinoversnow.blogspot.com/

As it says on the site, all contributions/corrections/recollections are welcome.

Cheers, Andrew
