W Sinclair 630/605 pics 1987 ish

Postby Boff » Fri Jan 20, 2017 12:40 am

A while ago I mentioned that I had some pics I took when I drove the 630, I was a BPA hire and worked for Sinclair and ESOS during the Sinclair/Kefferd change over and the subsequent move to Atherton road depot.

Loaded tonight are Bus/Depot photos of photos I took just now and I will load more when i have scanned them properly, Included is the weird Leyland/Allison combo, a glimpse of the AEC? Fosters bus, the coke bus and a general depot shot.

I also have some workshop pics as well as staff of that day including Agi, Phil and a few other luminaries of the day but I am not sure if this is the place to post them without permission from those in the pictures.

Enjoy!

Hi Boff,

My attached photograph of Sinclair's Volgren bodied Volvo B10M is the only Sinclair bus in my collection and would be from the era [1987?] that you mention. It is photographed operating a Route 605 service on Batman Avenue. I cannot see a fleet number but the registration number is CVL-358. Here it is....

Cheers Les, Looks like a Mk II B10M so probably a 1986?
ESOS or Eastern Suburbs Omnibis service ran 605 but the fleet got a bit mixed after Kefford Group took over.

Found it!

Fleet number 78

68 4856AO Volvo B10M MkII YV31MGC14GD011996 Volgren VG119 06.1986 B42D WB WA
ex (78) 4856AO, ex (78) NJY818, ex (78) CVL358 Eastrans, Oakleigh, Victoria. School Bus/Charter Bus. Sold to Sita Bus Lines, West Footscray, Victoria.
