ex MTT (Adelaide) 413 (AEC 661T trolley bus). 19/3/20

ex MTT (Adelaide) 413 (AEC 661T trolley bus) with bodywork built by local Adelaide builder J.A. Lawton & Sons in 1937.
It was one of 30, numbered 401 to 430 to enter service with the MTT. The double deckers seated fifty-seven with a crush load of eighty-four, all were withdrawn by June 1957, with a few briefly returning to service in August 1958.
413 was seen in Penfield Gardens, north of Adelaide, it is not known how long she has been resting there for but her future looks very grim. 19/3/20

Is this the TB that keeps getting moved around?

The were photos of one out in "the middle of nowhere" a few years ago, but more recent reports suggested it was no longer there.

No idea, are there photos of this one you are talking about?

There have been photos in magazines and on FB pages for quite some time. Not sure of the locations now, though
