KING BROS BUS GROUP IN THE BEGINNING

Postby KING BROS » Tue Oct 23, 2007 8:21 pm

Hi everyone just recently I uploaded some pictures of my BCA/Ken Magor Collection CD, of the now extinct King Bros Bus Goup. These pictures were taken based in Kempsey and some pictures still show the Kempsey bus service livery before being changed after they we purchesed by Kings.

Unfortunatily the chassie's and bodies of the buses are unkown, if anyone could help me out with this it would be appreaciated.

THANKS VERY MUCH TO THE BCA FOR GIVING ME THE AUTHORISATION TO UPLOAD PICTURES FROM THE BCA/KEN MAGOR COLLECTION CD ONTO THIS FORUM. :D

This is one of the first buses to be branded with the kings logo.

MO3624 is an Albion Viking Vk55 / Nambucca River Engineeering (5A 14/12/74) B52F body. It was sold to Taree BS (Ray McBriarty) by 1/82 and later went with those runs to Eggins.
MO3669 was Albion Viking Vk41L (chassis 53027F) / Watt Bros (1967) B52F which was sold to McDonald, Inverell
MO 3111 was Bedford SB with a Star Bros body - an old body fitted onto a new chassis about 1960.
Kempsey BS - JJ King used to operate one of the Kempsey town runs (Central Kempsey - Broughton St - Macleay Hospital) which was sold in 1969 to Cavanaghs with (at least) MO 3000 Federal-perkins/Syd Wood and MO 3111 Bedford/Star. King then retained the Kempsey - Crescent Head service.

I dont think that you should be associating the original "Kings Bus Service" with "King Bros". Doesnt do justice to the founders!

Thanks

That is because they are old 2007 format links which no longer work. To be able to view them the links would need to be reformatted.
