TV 1806 TBS- Oh what a vehicle put quite a few miles on her in my day. Dont surpose anyone would have apicture of her in her new life. I think she went way north to someone in Queensland. (funny really it was only about a month later she must have got home sick as she revisited us with flat batteries).

Check with spencer.
He delivered it.
Not sure if the box made it though, metal shavings can still be seen
on the road out of TBS. :mrgreen:

I worked on the Calabro vehicle here after Westbus bought that fleet, what great memories! Thanks Denair, I honestly love my good old days and photos like these are simply brilliant.

Yes they were a tidy fleet, I did my best that was for sure. Another memory here as well, when I worked for Parramatta-Ryde I even managed to get a drive (albeit short) in TV 333, the Metro West one at the top. Ken Butt owned it and I was at Parra-Ryde after he bought his share from Ivan Ferris.

What's the chassis number of your coach? That's the easiest way to confirm. A photo upload would be well received too.

Tv 1806 was my old coach at TBS

Maybe you can fill me in where she ended up , after Toronto she went to Mackay Coaches.
!991 model if I recall correctly , had a nice tight body , great front disc brakes but was a little slow to get the reves up for some reason.

Hope you place some pics up.

I'll put some pics up as soon as she's out of the shed, hopefully the next month or two, i purchased it out of adelaide, where it had been an owner driver coach doing charter work about two years ago, very tidy. Body # 1403. Regards Darren

We could either start a new post or add photos to this one.I'd love to see a variety of all Denning Landseer's here including high deck and double deck and the single axle version too.

Here is TV1806
Was not into taking a camera back then era early 1990's , no mobile phone with camera then.
This one is at Falls Creek , have another unable to find at the moment with the snow on the peaks in the background.
Most of my pics came from passengers weeks or months later.
