The Scania K94IB they do use it but I have seen then use others too. A very full good line up shot as well. I love line up shots.

I'm suprised that Leyland Lynx is still going. I'm suprised the body is still in usable condition. They rattle and crash far worse than any Scania low floor i've driven. When South Trans had them they weren't really good for any roads with bad pot holes.

I remember driving one down the Princes Highway through Blakehurst one night. As I went over the joins in the concrete near a drain, I heard a loud bang. Thinking that I may have hit something, I stopped to find all the hopper windows had come open over the drain!

hey hey hey! buses have feelings to ya know! :lol:
I reckon if this fleet was in yellow and white paint, you'd swear it was the Surfside Ernest fleet pre-Translink days.

Thats funny, :lol: I reckon the other dodgy spot for the Lynxs were The Kingsway Miranda just before Port Hacking High, lots of fire hydrants and pot holes to make the whole bus go bang.

Are those two Lynx's ex Southtrans? I remember riding on them to and from my grandparents place at Sylvania Heights in the SouthTrans days. Some good memories. I always liked getting them because they were something completely different even though they rattled like crazy!
Is that the truth or did you read about it in a Rail Back on Track media release?

Nice to see something different. Perhaps the bus getting work on the rear end is getting extra seats?

Nice pictures :)

I was wondering why some of the fleet saids "wide bay" and some others say "bay bus and coach"?

Nice picture's of some unique buses. :)

Wide Bay bought out "Bay Bus & Coach" aka Hervey Bay school runs during 2007, and kept the name. Same as the "Down Under Tours" name which they still have on a vehicle they bought from them + the tour work.

Here they are when with South Trans as units 70, 72 (Pic's taken while I worked there on work placement through school) I did'nt manage to get a pic of the other unit 71 before it was damaged.

Thanks for posting those 2 South Trans pics. Spent many a time travelling to school and back in them.

Any chance you could post those 2 pics in the Sydney section of photos along with any other South Trans gems you have?

Well unfortunately it has ruffeled a few feathers, so I have retracted and appoligised so we can just get on with the main point of the ATDB.
