Bus 165 recovery after breakdown

Postby vernbale » Fri Dec 30, 2016 6:54 pm

Always wanted to see this in action :D , a bus being recovered onto a tilt tray tow truck after 165 blew its transmission this arvo, it certainly dumped a lot of transmission fluid on the road :shock:

Hi Vern,
Over the years Launceston were always noted for treating their buses kindly hence the first class ride back to Howick Street. :wink: Were you the unlucky 165 driver on the spot? :mrgreen:

Common occurrence in Hobart :roll: Truth be know, it probably won't be as bad as it appears. Poor yoda is having pipe dreams expecting VOVIIs to return to Hobart :? As you're probably aware vernbale, we use a normal (if not large) tow-truck rather than tilt-tray in Hobart. I wonder what Burnie use :?: :?:

Not something you see here in Adelaide, that's for sure!

Our buses get your typical 'American styled' tow truck, no 5 star flatbed for us.. :lol: :cry:
