Coaches operating from 'Ovation of the Seas'

Postby Tas Bus Nut » Sun Dec 18, 2016 1:15 pm

Today (Sun 18th) marked the second visit of the 'Ovation of the Seas' Cruise Ship to Hobart. It's maiden voyage last Tuesday, didn't spark much interest within the tour coach spotting arena, as I believe only (10) coaches operated tours from the ship. Today however, was a different kettle of fish, with approx.20 coaches and more importantly, the appearance of a 1982 Mercedes Benz O303 / Ansair, restored by Sainty's Coaches Launceston, being what this author considers, the highlight of the day :lol: :mrgreen:
Below are some shots of the various operators, although pics aren't that good :( My camera batteries died, so resorted to using my phone :(
