If Eureka Coaches have acquired this coach it should have an AO accreditation number on the near side, that would appear to be the only way ownership can be confirmed, unfortunately recent shots of 0369AC have been offside so it is hard to confirm actual ownership! One thing certain is that it has been repainted out of Caulfield's livery.
BTW I think Bayside 28 will be in a similar position to 34 next week, just not sure of the exact day.
yolo seems to be a bit of a trend!

Thanks CM Hino - I love that livery on the Muir's Express bodied Merc. Reminds me of the Route 747 'Airbus' Central Coast (NSW) to Sydney Airport livery from The Entrance Red Bus Service a few years ago and also a bit of Cooma Coaches as well. Good to see some colour on buses.

Job done.

I have to agree with you there Andrew.
Very few new buses are coming out with a full paint job now days.
But my pick out of this weeks picture is the Denmar tourmaster That paint job was perfect. I walked all round this coach could not find a fault in the paint job or body work any where

If the coach is owned by Eureka - they are now owned by Hester's in Ballarat and the existing Eureka vehicles have been re-registered onto AC plates so perhaps check is the accreditation number corresponds to Hester's vehicles

Eureka have also purchased 2 ex Trotters vehicles - 1504AC and one other identical vehicle. 1504AC became 6422AO with Eureka before being changed onto a new AC plate. An additional 2 seats are being added to make 50 seat with wheelchair lift. The details of the second vehicle are unknown, however it is being converted to a 53 seat configuration and the wheelchair lift is being retained in the vehicle.

Hope this helps

CM Hino, these shots have generated some discussion and after running around the shopping tour circuit this afternoon with Ventura Tiger some questions may have been answered, but more have arisen!
0369 AC appears to remain in the ownership of the proprietor of Caulfield Coaches, but may have sold the other vehicle, a Scania with the business name when as Desto Dave said, he moved to Creswick - the accreditation number does not match any of the Eureka ones(see below).
Eureka Coaches is now a very muddied scenario, with a number of vehicles reregistered onto AC plates and hving a new accreditation number, but that is different to the AO number on the Heritage vehicles - both seen today. Also saw 6422 AO still with the original Eureka Accreditation number and reported along with ex Trotters 1503AC(now 3677AO)to still be owned by the original owners of Eureka who also apprently have limos in Ballarat. Another ex Eureka vehicle said also to be owned by the guy who acquired the 4 AC registered vehicles of Eureka had yet another accreditation number(AO series!) - confused, I certainly am!

BTW CM Hino Bayside 36 should be in Bendigo(at the mine)Tuesday, a change from 28(or at least one day during the week). Good luck, hope to see it soon in your photos.

Hi E.L.Woods
Yes I am confused.
But thanks to you the other board member who tried to work this all out
I will keep my eye open for bayside 36 this week. I haven't got a picture of 36 so finger crossed that it is sent up here.
Thanks again :wink:
