Certainly a few memories there, Roger Graham included. The Red Arrow bus looks like the PMC that ran the route and was in Red Arrow livery.
I also remember those great bus shelters (note roof) at the Bosnjak's terminal at Parramatta Station.

These official black and white press photos have an added impact. Love the N&W Leopard with the sample of passengers and showing the professional presentation of the driver. Also enjoyed the Leslie's ex Canberra Freighter bodied Swift at Blacktown. Both 1983 shots.
Unapologetically hate attention seeking bus pax.

That was Frank and Morris's first new bus after the take over of Alan Redman's Hammondville Bus Service. m/o5950 was a Smithfield bodied Albion Viking VK55, keeping with the beautiful fleet of Albions Alan had.
