This is in fact an O 500 U / OH 1830 LE and not an OC 500 LE.

Did they get an ex King Bros coach somewhere along the line and adapt that livery to what is on TC 568 and TC 6000?

Any shots of 2 certain O305's? :wink: :twisted:

Perhaps one became TC5636 with Nightcruiser ?? Dunno which one, or about the other one .. .. :(

TC 3811 was still at Bunbury in April and I think the other one may have been at Bussleton. The livery on the coaches is that worn by a Denning Landseer built as a stock unit, and King Bros adopted a version of that livery for their coach fleet.
yolo seems to be a bit of a trend!

He quite clearly said O500LE and note OC500LE, so please do not quote people incorrectly.

They look to have a well presented fleet over there. I will be heading over to Perth this Saturday and will be heading down there the following Tuesday for some pics.

Interesting to note, on the two photos of TC2095, the route number swaps sides... :evil:

A real shame that ex Westrail Volvo B12r TC 6000 was destroyed by fire as that was a nice coach as I remember seeing it in WA a couple of years ago.

TC-6000 was 201 IIRC. Just incase some people are still unaware of it's TP Fleet No.
