Funds AEC Regal. Bit arrogant asking Metro for another donation, but yes, it would be good to try and get one for preservationAEC Regal wrote:I happened to wander by the Scott St. yard at Rogerville this morning for a sticky-beak. Bit sad to see the jaunty little MAN's sitting there withdrawn, unloved and unwanted along with some early Scania N112s. I noticed class leader No. 501 amongst them (others including 504, 506, 510, 511, etc). It occurred to me again, that surely 501 is a potential first class preservation candidate? I may have mentioned this before, but not really got (or remembered) the response, but is there any preservation plans for the MAN's? Understood they are probably not much liked and pretty shagged, but they are an important part of MTT/Metro history (and AFAIR an interesting pre Tas. history in Darwin?) and with so many significant MTT/Metro bus types already vanished from the scene, it would be sad to see the MAN's also disappear into history.
