A weekend rail track closure from Rosewood and Springfield Central to Corinda provided an opportunity to cruise down the Ipswich Motorway on the top deck of a double decker, with Thompson’s using their 2 Volvo Volgren Optimus buses as an express service between Ipswich and Corinda. Normally these buses are on charter or school runs.

The photo of 059 GJT was taken in Oct 2017 when a kangaroo bar was not fitted. They were both running last weekend but I was unable to get a shot of 059 GJT. See photo caption.
