Sorry, I don't use Facebook etc.

*************************************************************************************************************************

I seek actual photos of 4 of the buses within a Fleet Number Group, not "Photo-shopped" ones to fill a Number gap.

Email photo to me direct Ribble@xtra.co.nz please.....or....
Post on here with details - location/date/photographer.

Your sent Photos are not published elsewhere....they are only printed and added to the Historic Albums.

Many thanks for all help.

***For those who don't know....

I have been collecting photos of DGT/UTA/STA buses since 2004. I now have 6 photo albums which cover "Fleet Number Groups" of buses starting from the year 1933.

Each album contains several photos of buses within those sequential Number Groups from year 1933 - eg Mercedes 0500LE's within Fleet Numbers 1812-1969; Volvo B12BLEA's within Fleet Numbers 2128-2137 etc.

Because in 2009, the RTA started 'random/individual' issues of ST Registration Plates to new buses and not issue 'Groups' of (say) 20 buses of the same chassis/body type, there are some individual buses of different chassis types, now within the sequential Number Groups ....eg Nos 1998; 1999; 2002; 2026; 2233; 2234; 2256 and recently 2784.

As I'm keeping to sequential Fleet Numbers, a photo of each "Individual" bus - such as 2784 above - is also sought, although they 'all look the same' as the other buses of the same chassis type/body. There are some 'groups' with only 2 buses in that Group, flanked each side by a longer fleet number series of a particular Chassis / Body combination.

This photo album collection and my Fleet Lists, will be passed onto the Sydney Bus Museum when I pass away.

Hi all. Its been VERY hard finding photos of the current STA Fleet. Sources that have assisted in the past seem now to use Facebook or other sites.

Im VERY grateful to those photographers that have sent me photos in the last 9 months.

If anyone CAN assist with this long term Project, PLEASE email me your photos with Date, Location, Photographer name and any details.

NO photos are re-used for any 'commercial purposes' or passed on to to others without pre-permission.

I hope that your all keeping well in these Covid-19 days. Here in NZ we do seem to have the Virus spread 'under control'.

Many thanks

Don Roberts
