Interesting that Hunters Hill Bus Co REO M/0 4118 had almost an identical body to 4119 (except that 4118 had a rear door)

Looking at the last three pictures are Seddon`s.MO-4037 is a Leyland TD4 and the chassis came from ex D.G.T 1217 that had a Clyde body built in 1936.And I am thinking that MO-984 could be a Albion Valkyrie CX13.

Yes, I was wondering which is the Seddon. I remember finding a Seddon radiator at Dions once. Anyone know if Dions ever had one?

I played around Hammondville Bus Service nee Liverpool Bus Co., from the time that they built the depot in Cooper Ave, From about the age of 10 years old Warren Haydon {the guy in the photo of the wreck of the Reo beside the shed} and myself use play "Bus Driving" in the old Reo so from that far back I am 99.9% that there were never any Seddons in service at Moorerbank. Of interest here some 62 years later I am still playing "Bus Driver" at Interline. I obtained my Bus Lic. in June 1962 so my 50 years are comming up////////

Refer system improver old thread of 2008 The Seddon bus in Victoria
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=37181
and look at pictures 4 and 10 as these Seddon buses have the same four to five ring emblem as MO-032,MO-445 and MO-4119.

Congratulations on the 50 coming up! You only have around another 30 years to go to catch up with Australia's longest serving, (and with the one company), Bus Driver and all around gentleman, Mr Ray Parsons!

I too am loving the memories that your photographic history has been brining back of days long past, when the drivers knew eveyone, the buses were ALL different, the rainbow of colour schemes that one could see at the main areas such as Liverpool/Bankstown/Hurstville to name a few!

Please, keep 'em coming. And to those who came from these times, keep up your recollections of these wonderful times, surely an education for the younger enthusiasts of today!

4 rings is probably a Perkins diesel badge. I doubt that 984 is a CX 13 - more likely the chassis of ex lowbridge DRTT #1227,Mod 80 Albion Venturer DD sold to the Moore group in 3/49 for rebodying- (MBA dated 12/49) The extraordinary thing about 4149 (ex DRTT 1230 chass) was that it did not receive its new MBA body until 1959. Presumably, in classic Moore's style , the chassis sat around for years.
