[NSW + HK + UK] Enviro500 and Friends in Sydney

Postby Windy » Sun Apr 27, 2008 12:34 am

Howdy all!

The Enviro500 demonstrator came out to play in the sunshine (first sunny day in 13 days!) with some mates.

Near Sydney Airport, the Enviro500 on Queensland Conditional Registration C49958, passes ex China Motor Bus' MCW Metrobus #ML1. Thankfully the Enviro500 had moved into the outside lane early.

Before turning into West Botany Street on their way back to the Sydney Bus and Truck Museum

4 generations of double decker buses in the one location. Almost in chronological order as well from front to back (had ML1 and the Routemaster swapped places)... 1940s: 2033, a Leyland OPD2 from Sydney. 1970s-1990s/2000: ML1, an MCW Super Metrobus from Hong Kong. 1950s-2005: RM1708, a Leyland/AEC Routemaster from London. The future: soon-to-be 5504, an Alexander Dennis Trident/Enviro500 for Hong Kong.

Very nice pics, I too liked the 4-up line-up at the Museum yard. Funnily enough only one of the four has been in route service in Australia.

Since these photos were posted over two years ago, they have probably been moved far and wide and the locations of some would most likely now be unknown.
