Hi "Bus525",
yes, I use to drive for them (1993-5) and also have photos going back to the early 1970's. I have to go to work tonight soon but will try to have a look for you sometime tomorrow. :D
Bring back the Leopards!

Hi 525,

The head Mechanic I work with used to work at Port Bus Sevice and he has a lot of pics as the fleet left the depot when kings took over, I can ask him if i can scan them or something.

Is 4675 the one that ended up with Palmers in Doonside doing the Australia's Wonderland run from Blacktown? Certainly looks like the one.

Can anyone tell me where this photo was taken? The large building in the distance has me thrown, I'm sure its not the Denham St depot. My best guess is somewhere south west of the bowling club/Port Mac HS.
Enjoy.
