NSW historical fleet list section

Postby Ben O » Fri Feb 10, 2012 9:42 am

Hi all, I thought I'd create this topic to keep people updated with work being done on the historical lists in the Busaustralia New South Wales fleet list section. In most circumstances these list do not cover every vehicle that a company has owned, but they do try to cover the vast majority of vehicles that the company has had over the last 20 years. The next project will be to extend the lists back even further.

Quite a few lists have been updated and added in the last few months, but here are the latest:

Metropolitan:
- Busabout / Neville's Bus Service: http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=NEV
- Calabro Bros Bus Service: http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=CBO
- Delwood Coaches: http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=DEV
- Harris Park (operator information & previous vehicles updated): http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=HPT
- Kurnell Passenger Transport: http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=KPT
- Pleasure Tours (operator information & previous vehicles updated): http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=PLE
- Toongabbie Transport Service at sale to Westbus: http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=TTS

Central Coast:
- Yarramalong Bus Lines (Palmer): http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=PAY

Newcastle & Hunter:
- Morisset Bus Service (general tidyup & addition of previously operated vehicles): http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=MOR
- Sugar Valley Coachlines (general tidyup & addition of previously operated vehicles): http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=SUG
- Sugar Valley Coachlines (Spencer Ross ownership): http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=SVC
- Toronto Bus Service (general tidyup & addition of previously operated vehicles): http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=TOR

New England:
- Dewhurst, Armidale: http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=DEW

Orana:
- Roach's Charter Service, Gilgandra: http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=RGG

Feedback, corrections and comments are always welcome. All information comes from a variety of sources including my own personal observations, enthusiast publications and industry literature.

Regards,
Ben

I have done a bit of work on the St Ives Bus Services fleetlist this morning. http://busaustralia.com/fleetlists/nsw.php?search=STI

One query - were (2) & (3) in the fleet at the end? If so, which company took them over?

I have held off adding m/o 311 discussed in a recent topic until I can dig out some old Fleetlines and establish a fleet number.

Awesome job on these lists. Loving the history. One question tho. Is it my imagine or have a number of lists dissappeared after being added? ie Deanes North Ryde and Hornsby/Kuringai? Also any chance a clipper tours may be on the cards?

You are correct. I have fixed Hornsby Bus Group. The Deanes list is offline for a few days while I do a major update of previous vehicles operated. I'm currently decided how to add in the Clipper Tours - whether to have them as part of the Deanes list or separate?

Thanks for that Ben O. If you have clipper vehicles right up until their final demise in early 2000's i would suggest maybe a seperate list, as werent they at one stage owned by Driver Group in Melbourne?

Blue Ribbon has been done, although it needs a little work with some of the vehicles owned between 1988 and 1993.

Rover Motors is up and coming.

Menai Bus Service has only one bus listed. They had many other buses which eventually became South Trans. I have listed the following buses listed under South Trans that were originally Menai or Woronora Buses.
They are m/o's 705,905,4585,5708,5713,5778,7137,7138,7183,7467,7468,7517 and 7519. If these buses were added to the Menai Bus Service list then it would reflect a more accurate list.
