Franklin's of Perth Classics

Postby LocoLes » Fri Sep 01, 2017 9:03 pm

During recent Tassie visits I came across [by chance] 3 interesting 'classic' buses from the Perth, Tasmania based fleet. The Austral Pacific Classic II is pictured at Cressy alongside the company's Austral-GM Tourmaster coach. While in Queenstown this excellent Volvo B10M with PMC body was parked in such a position outside the Wilderness Railway that I just had to take advantage of several angles. A credit to the owner and the coaches are probably quite rare now. :)

This 1986 Mercedes-Benz [PMCSA] has since been retired [see rego C 12 MH], another excellent former fleet member. :)

Evening Lourie.
It's an Austral Pacific Classic II integral coach.Which was essentially an upgrade under Austral Pacific ownership of a 2 axle MCA integral coach.
CCCC is the board member who asked the question whether the coach was ex Brims Coaches.
Hope this helps.
