Thanks for posting...love the Scania Ansair and the Tram Bus:) Also, couldn't help noticing that in the group shot, the desto on the closest bus is "Snug". What's that all about?:)

Snug is a town down the channel between Margate and Kettering. That is now Metro route #93.

SNUG - was so named because when discovered, provided a "snug" anchorage for the vessels, hence the name stuck.
Situated on the D'entrecasteaux Channel, Snug is one of many original little fishing villages that is now basically a short commute to Hobart.
The D'entrecasteaux Channel houses quite a few Atlantic Salmon farms and some ship building industries.
