At the Gold Coast today.

Postby Noel » Sun Sep 14, 2008 6:59 pm

Hello

I made a trip down to the Gold Coast this morning to grab some shots, and here are a few for those interested.

424 is a Motorcoach ex Coachtrans and is painted in the Gold Coast Tourist Shuttle colours. Pictured outside Pacific Fair.
Image

459 is the first MDi for Surfside and is seen at Tweed Heads.
Image

691 is a Custom Coaches bodied Mercedes Benz 0405. It was operating the Twin Towns shuttle today in place of 649.
Image

716 is a Bustech VST bodied Mercedes Benz 0500LE. Seen at Pacific Fair.
Image

795 is the newest Volvo B7RLE Bustech VST on the road. It is seen here departing the Pines shopping centre.
Image

828 is an old school Volvo B7RLE Bustech. Seen here departing Pacific Fair to head to the theme parks.
Image

859 is a Volvo B12BLE Bustech. Seen here operating a highway service at Miami.

I quite like the black on 795, makes it look different.

Sorry I missed today, looked like some OK weather earlier on (bit of rain this afternoon down here)

I thought one of the 790's was missing a panel - possibly 794 is as well. 792 had the same thing a while back.

691 is looking quite dinged up, pity as its the nicest high-floor bus they have IMHO.

The black on the front of 795 caused by the missing grey panel makes it look like the bus is "smiling".
The usual great pics T1229.

Good Pics.
First pics i've seen on hear taken from the Pines (I live down the road).
Also another thing- Is it common to see the Gold Coast Turf Club (Bus no. 626) liveried Merc on a 757 route? I saw it the other day, and it seemed a little displaced, as i usually see it doing GC Shuttles on shift 991, 992 or 933. Any one else seen it lately?

You can find it on a number of inland routes - it used to show up at Pac Fair on the old Route 7 and 25 fairly frequently, less so now there are more low floors about.

Does that MotorCoach with the orange Gold Coast Shuttle sticker have a toilet fitted inside of it.? I don't mind the styling of the MotorCoach Marathon body also.

Pretty sure none of the MCA buses inherited from Coachtrans have toilets, certainly not 424.

Sorry to bump an old thread but is 691 still in service with Surfside?

I shall attempt to get to Gold Coast one day, I'll catch a train to Robina and hopefully catch a bus from there. My only concern is the regularity of services, I'd hate to be stuck on the Gold Coast without being able to get home.

691 is still in service (still listed on their fleetlists).

However it only see's school bus, Gold Coast Tourist Shuttle and special event services.
