I bet there be an eye kept on ex 203 to see if it will come available for sale and hopeful preservation Neil next to finding a ex MTT B58 with its original second door in it ex 203 might a good candidate at least it is all original with its second door. :mrgreen:

B 65 QH is owned by O'Neill, it was previously Picton Coaches(23) - which is confirmed on the Picton disposal list which has a typo - and needs to be corrected from B 65 RH. It doesn't appear on the O'Neill list at all.
yolo seems to be a bit of a trend!

Thx Hayden. Couldn't find who owns ex TRC #79, as it's still on Redline list

ex TRC #77 @ O'Neill's USED to be my old truck for MANY years @ Redline. Took delivery of it when it had 35k on the clock after a few Tassie tours. Buses/coaches DIDN'T come to Hobart until they were "worn" in, in those days. Nowdays, the lucky buggers get BRAND NEW vehicles (albiet BCIs) :lol:

What year would the last one have been sold? I do believe I can remember travelling on them.

I'd have to check, but I would estimate at least 5yrs ago. I took a pic of #354 when I bought it back from Burnie, so I'll see if that has a date on it.
