Just an update for Bayes Coachlines for those who may have not checked the fleet list recently.

115 the Isuzu LV324L has been written off and scrapped for parts.

New buses for Bayes Coachlines expected for delivery in Sep/Oct:

125 - Neoplan JNP6130G??? (to be confirmed) - Youngman - 2 axles, seating - B46D
126 - MAN 15.280 - Coachwork Central - 2 axle - B55D
127 - MAN 15.280 - Coachwork Central - 2 axle - B55D

126 and 127 will join the charter fleet and come with luggage compartments, thermo king airconditioning and Hanover destination displays.

125 will have a cummins engine, thermo king airconditioning and hanover destination displays.

I find it interesting that they are only two-axle buses but have a high seating capacity!!!

If their purpose is for charters eg Schools, day trippers and sports excursions etc. then they're bound to jam in as many seats as possible. 8)

Howick & Eastern #8 & #17 were sold as Movans. #8 went north to Whangarei and #17 went south to New Plymouth.

As far as I know #20,#23 & #28 were sold for parts and exported to Fiji.

#29 was sold to Kawerau Coaches.

Mana #138 ( Briefly #63 at H&E ) was sold to Matakohe Passenger Transport after a body overhaul at Auckland Coachbuilders.

Im getting real rusty on Howick and Eastern these days.... so what were 20. 23 and 28 and were they exported whole or in parts..... If it was parts they could be to anything but if it was the complete Buses... well..

Just came accross some pics of a Fiji early seventies Albion Viking chassis (running with a wooden body till around 2011) which was being fitted out completely with Hino running gear and is to be fitted with a brand new PA Lal body....

20,23 & 28 were 1989 Hino RG 197's with Coachwork International Ranger II bodies. They were exported whole. 23 had been deregistered and to be scrapped due to a blown engine, it may have been canibalised for parts before it's sale.

Any chance of pics of them from anyone that I could use on the Pacific buses site.... as theres a good chance they could be resurected in some form and someone may recognise them

Does anyone have the regos for ADLs 4195-4199, 4217-4222 and any newbies that haven't been recorded on the fleet lists yet?

And also the where abouts of some ex-Wellington 1300s and 1800s would be good to know.

Cheers
