Lovell's Coaches

Postby LocoLes » Sat Sep 02, 2017 9:19 pm

Lovell's Coaches fleet could be located laying over in several places during school contract runs and [c.1990's] my camera captured some of the vehicles, chiefly at Sandy Bay, North Hobart Oval, Hobart College - Mt Nelson, Snug and Huonville. The coaches were acquired after sale of Lovell's by different operators and without going to too much trouble I noticed Oakley's of Snug have a former Lovell's M-B. My main aim is to photograph the vehicles and not trace where they [coaches] ended up so to speak. Ex MTT/ Metro Volvo and Mercedes-Benz are amongst these 12 photographs. The majority of these pics will revive memories of a once well known fleet in the Hobart area. :mrgreen:
