This photo is posted with permission of Geoffrey Foster of and old Redline unit operating om the Qld Gold Coast, The retired Bus Operator down the street from me experience the same problem that the late Fred Carah did family members destroyed their old records and photos thinking no one would be interested in seeing them. His question is he believes this to be ex 42 or 43 based on the air vents on the front and personally think it be in the late 30's. If you could confirm the old fleet number to make a 90 year happy.


Hi Industry,
Yes, to confirm what Car 177 has stated, this unit was delivered new to Redline as No 68, which originally went onto Central Australia express operations on NT plate MO-164. The unit joined its preceding sister Denning Viking, No 67, first delivered on a Qld plate, but re-registered on NT plate MO-168. No 68 was re-registered in Qld when acquired by Holiday Services, as PFW-504.
Here's a sadly blurry image of either 67 or 68, on the right, in this photo at the Darwin depot during the hey-day. Note the typical mechanics' uniform in the Darwin climate, as he attends to washing the unit emblazoned with Sydney's "Kingsgrove" school banner as it receives service during a charter to the Top End and Central Australia.

He has this same photo in his album.

Regarding the image on the previous page of Laurie MacBeth passing under the entry arch to the Ayers Rock - Olgas National Park in No 48, I have found a photo taken many years later and posted by Phil G at the Exploroz site, which shows the completed arch. The archway structure was constructed during the summer of 1962 - 1963 by Peter Severin of Curtin Springs Station, and Lofty Zanker, the unofficial "Mayor of Ayers Rock." It's clear that the upper wording, done in wrought ironwork and very clear in Phil's photo, was not added before 1965 which was the year of No 48's first allocation to Centre tour operations.
I have no idea if this arch survived the Federal government's 1980's rampaging destruction of every last trace of the original tourist infrastructure at Ayers Rock, including the five privately constructed and operated motels, yet I would guess this historic artefact was bulldozed as well....!
If anyone can let me know what in fact happened to it I'd be very appreciative.

Looselion it appears that 68 photos below was their a reason it was fitted with and older style front and I can understand the covers on the air vent intakes seeing it was for the Central Australia Express runs back then when the highway was dirt. It caught me out with that front.

Industry it seems 68 underwent a lot of modifications after coming from Redline. Looks like a complete re-skin along with a revised front. The upper air intakes for the Jet Air ventilation system were mostly shrouded as seen on 68, to reduce the insect intake factor, along with water in heavy rain conditions. Another point I should make is that although No 57 was the first r/e Denning to receive engine and cooling air from side vents, Rex continued to order upper air scoops for r/e units slated for Central Australia and Nullarbor operations. Those who are familiar with the dreaded bull dust conditions back in those early days will totally understand that thinking!

I had a cuppa last night with Owen (88) whom use to own 2 bus routes in Parramatta to the North Parramatta area whom recently had a Stroke.
They have been using this forum and others to help him with memory lost and to get his brain thinking again.
he has asked me to thank you for your help with responses to his questions and others for their photos both here and some Facebook sites he looks at with help of his carer.

He has always had an interested in Redline as he said last night they looked better than that Blue Company (Ansett Pioneer) and with his brother they travel to Brisbane by Redline Express to meet your father to buy a coach as they were looking at entering into the Sydney Charter market at the time, but Dad wanted more than they could afford and bought a second had Bedford in Sydney.

I trust you do not mind if I post any other questions from him in the future as I'm sure many are interested in your replies.

Industry may I ask the surname of Owen, as I am 86 and was a member of Parramatta BCA when I was an operator and may know him?

Pretty sure it is Taylor but since they moved in only know him as Owen last night he could not remember the 2 trading names but remembers he bought gas Bridge run about 2 years after the other run and remembers Eddie and your names but cannot place everything but knows he had a few lunches with Eddie.

I will be able to get it for you hopefully over the weekend.

Hi Industry,
Marvellous to hear about Owen and his recollections of Rex and Redline.....(especially looking better than the blue company!) Please convey my best wishes and great respect to him as an old stager and pioneer of the industry, and I assure you I will be happy to respond as best I can to any query or comment Owen wishes to direct my way.
Please tell him this message comes from Rex's son, Glenn Law.

Glenn

I advised him a couple of months ago who you were and that is why the questions and seeing some of the old photos.


His family destroyed his collection of timetables and photos as no one would be interested in them.

Hi Industry, maybe he is Owen Bevan, see below?

Route 3
PARRAMATTA – EAST PARRAMATTA – BURNSIDE HOMES
PARRAMATTA – EAST PARRAMATTA – WEBB ST – PARRAMATTA (bidirectional loop)
July 1969: Transferred to OW & CS Bevan.
16 March 1971: Amalgamated with 164 (Parramatta – Webb St) as 3, Parramatta – East Parramatta – Webb St – Parramatta, in an enlarged bidirectional loop. Trips running generally anti-clockwise regarded as “East Parramatta” trips (as they travelled to that point first after leaving Parramatta) and those running generally clockwise as “Webb St” (previous 164 terminus name) trips.
By 4 September 1972: Transferred to East Parramatta Bus Lines (Bruce Whiteoak).

Route 164
PARRAMATTA – WEBB ST, EAST PARRAMATTA
31 January 1969: Transferred to OW (later CS & OW) Bevan.
September 1971: 3 & 164 amalgamated into a large bidirectional loop, as 3 Parramatta – East Parramatta –Webb St – Parramatta.

The Bevan's had a Chevrolet which had belonged to Ces Prouse of Canley Vale acopy of a photo I have attached.

No problem Industry. I hope it helps Owen with his memory! Although I have a number of photos of buses on Routes 3 and 164 it is hard to tell which ones were Owens and his brother. The Chev I knew was Bevan's.

May I ask, what is the width of that bus featured above? It looks to be wider than the overwidth SL200s, but it may just be the image.

Re the previous picture, below is Redline No 23, a J6 Bedford based R/E Denning after delivery into service in May 1961 as NML-349, the same rego.......
There are all sorts of discrepancies, which I cannot solve here, not the least being the shallow front glass on the more recent photo, which was a design element that was incorporated only in the first example of this tranche of eight builds, as the J6 Bedford based No 22.
On the face of what we see here, the later photo is of ex-Redline No 22, carrying ex-Redline No 23's registration plate.
To answer Industry's query, the Bedford emblem was fitted to No 22 at the factory, just as seen in the photo.
Of course the vehicle pictured by Industry had to be ex-Redline from new simply because no other operator had yet ventured into the world of rear-engine conversions, which Rex had actually pioneered back in 1952 in collaboration with the engineer Doug Heron of Balmoral Engineering in Brisbane. Ansair were scratch building the locally designed urban Transett at this time but to be very frank these were never a raging success and were not developed beyond the initial limited duty version as originally marketed. Of course the Ansair Flxible Clipper was the hallmark, but as an Australian reproduction of an entirely American design it was beyond comparison with the humble efforts of locals such as Rex Law, who of necessity had to combat monetary superiority with determination, flair and ingenuity.
