Which SL200?

Postby flyer682 » Fri Oct 26, 2012 5:00 am

Saw this ex YBC SL200 in Paeroa a couple of weeks ago. Anyone know it's old fleet number?
Looks like original registration - KN5547.

The bus is 1620 and is registered as a movan.

A bit off topic but does anyone have a photo of 1627 with its name showing above the door?

Thank you for that.
One of the early ones which I remember being at Roskill Depot. They rarely went on the Point Chev/Three Kings run (045/274), as the Roskill manager (Ron?) didn't want City Depot Operators driving his nice shiny new MAN's!

1627 was my permanent bus before she was transfered to Wellington before being sold. Neat bus probably the best of the 200s with the 4sp Voith. :D

1684 at Orewa also had a Voith gearbox.
1682 had a Merc gearbox and a fantastic bus to drive. Last heard of at Mt. Ruapehu running up to the skifields.
