Wales Coaches Austral Tourmaster

Postby LocoLes » Thu Apr 13, 2017 9:35 pm

This Austral Tourmaster DC122 from Wales Coaches of Cootamundra fleet [TV 652] was 'snapped' by my camera whilst it was on tour and visiting Adelaide c.early 2000's. A nice clean livery don't you think :?:

There would have been many blue Tourmasters atound at the time so its nice to see one that was different.It looks like an Austral livery using blue instead of yellow.I added a copy of an advert.
Thanks for sharing your photos,Loco Les.Keep posting.

Nowadays all white paint with a token pattern of colour passes as a livery.

Quite a few companies used similar patterns, with different colours.

Only problem was that it was very expensive to repaint (in the days before vinyl became fashionable) even after a minor accident. Even all-over colour can be hard to match after it has faded a bit.

All white is very boring, at least some operators use innovative stickers to individualise their buses.

Can you imagine of they used an all white Austral in their ad?
It would have killed the impact.
