Huon Bedfords [identification]

Postby LocoLes » Mon Jul 31, 2017 3:33 pm

Whilst things are somewhat quiet on the Tassie scene I have attached photographs of an unidentified fleet 'on the hill behind Cygnet' plus another photo of EJ-3051 from the same fleet parked at Huonville. The 4th photograph is Bedford DD-8957, also parked in Huonville. Maybe 'local'' knowledge can solve the missing fleet details and bodywork please. :oops:

The green CC would have possibly been ex Grays. The white Ansair Styleliner is ex Redline whilst the orange/brown Ansair is ex Ace Tourist Coaches #28

The operator should be S.A.& P.M.O'Neill of Cygnet,Les.What road was the photo taken on in Cygnet? That should confirm the ownership.

It's taken at Shane's depot/yard. Basically a large driveway with parking to the side. At the end is a large undercover shed with a primitive drive-on "pit" :)

burrumbus, That would be correct - the buses were parked ''in the bush' so to speak :o - on the LH side of Golden Valley Rd approaching Cygnet township. Thanks burrumbus.

Hi Tas Bus Nut..... That caps it off exactly :) Your description is just how I found it Neil although I didn't see the drive-on 'pit' or shed. May have been a 'Joe Blake' or two around up there! :wink:
