[BNE] New Park Ridge and old Veolia

Postby Noel » Fri Mar 28, 2008 6:45 pm

Hi all

Had a surprise tonight while chasing footy shuttles – three new Volvo B12BLE Bustech VSTs for Park Ridge Transit. PRT065, PRT066 and PRT067 are all in TRANSLink livery. Here are shots of both 65 and 66 passing Garden City Depot.

Also out for Park Ridge Transit was 23, a Scania L113CRL/Volgren. Seen in the pouring rain passing Garden City depot.

PRT049, a Scania K94IB/Volgren was also doing shuttles tonight.

And finally, from Veolia is this Austral Allstar number 199.

Thanks for looking.

Nice shots there T1229. I like how well the low light shots turned out.

Looks like you did quite well in what is generally awful lighting for photography :). I like the last shot.

Great pic of the Austral Allstar.
It's a 1991 vintage Cummins with automatic transmission but i don't know which model Cummins or make of gearbox.

Plenty of variety out tonight for the "football feast". Good shots, hope you didn't get too wet taking them :P

Excellent photos under very trying conditions.
These pics were taken during some very heavy rain and dark skies as a result of the rain.

Did anybody notice the location of the Qld Govt. logo on the side of PRT065 & PRT066?

Nice observation MAN 18.310, the TRANSLink logos are also in a slightly different spot too, they're normally more towards the middle.

BTW, nice pics T1229.

Super old reply - but that Allstar has an Alison Automatic. Good news too it's being kept in service (just got it back from heavy automatics where it went for a rebuild). Here's a recent pic. Unfortunately the desto is permanently "out of service".
