I wonder what happened to that Swift, I saw it a few times but never got a photo of it.

Would make a nice motor home with those big windows.

I wonder if you have any pics of the Adelaide Tour MCW's with me driving :)

Great photos,Loco Les. The Goldliner looks nice in its colours as it would have from its Sydney days. The AEC Swift looks good the way it is.Has anyone got interior photos of it?

The Goldliner Atlantean, ex PTC 1143, is actually still in its Fearnes of Wagga livery.
