STA 85th Anniversary Bus Launch

Postby theflyingoreo » Mon Dec 25, 2017 9:10 pm

Was present at a launch at Olympic Park last Thursday featuring all 12 STA buses wrapped in special 85th Anniversary liveries.

Originally some of the gunzels including myself were requested by someone (who I assumed was representing STA) to hold off posting our photos publically until the story featured a few days later on 7 news.

A small selection of photos are below

The more I stare at it the more I'm liking 2652 in the traditional green and cream on the Bustech body. Any other shots of that particular unit/colour scheme from different angles ?

What I have. Makes me wish I took more shots of the nearside of each.

I see what they've done, create an illusion of the body style of the era that the livery was on. Visible in the couple of shots above next to 2652 - the Royal Visit 2783 and the CB80 with a Mk 1 rear.

The Bustechs were a bit of a disappointment where they didn't continue the livery on the near side across the sloping windows.

Even the CB80 missed out on part of the "Leopard" livery on the near side.

Yes they look good and they should not loose the skin either after it winds up, hopefully the STA have spare skins for damage.

Had a friend tell me about it and I was near so went over to have a look.


Side note, does anyone know a good image host? Trying to repost but can't find a decent host.
