Less common sights in SEQ- Part 2

Postby TheIlikeBusesGuy » Mon Dec 04, 2017 4:36 pm

Round 2 of less common sights in SEQ:

First up, a bus that is no longer with us, but still one of my favourites- Ex BT W/S 1599, Mercedes Benz C628 Citaro. Only one ever served with BT, and it usually did a specific set of routes, making a 174/175 fairly uncommon.

Next up, a selection of rare Railbuses. There tends to be a very select number of operators that have a major presence on Rail, and smaller operators such as Doyle's Coaches and E&D Charters slip through the cracks.

Whilst BBL is a regular fixture on Rail, their BCI Proma (midi bus) is not.

Sisil's Bus Lines has an interesting fleet, rarely photographed. I like that they tend to keep older buses running, rather than sending them to the scrapyard!

This Mercedes LO812, unknown operator was a nice surprise to see in Kelvin Grove, whilst walking to a uni class.

The B12BLE, operated by G,C,S and W; is used on a large range of services. The following buses below fall outside of that main crop of routes:

A tag axle on a 50- I was the only passenger onboard, so the driver kindly dropped me off across from QUT before heading back to depot.

Tag axle 170's aren't particularly common either, so its a treat to see one (surprising because G,S,W,C all do the 170, and all have tags)

To finish up, as the icing on the cake, a Virginia depot 199.

The Mercedes 812 you photographed at Kelvin Grove belongs to Dansie Coaches - ex North & Western BS in Sydney of whose livery it still wears today.
