Thinking about it, the vehicle in Industry's photo can only be ex-Redline No 22, which is quite historic, being the first of a long line of rear-engine tour coaches built by Alan Denning. It was the last delivery from his original factory site on Annerley Road opposite the Red Brick Hotel , before he relocated to Yerongpilly.
Here's the official Denning pre-delivery photo of 22:

Hi Glenn

This is a really interesting discovery. It becomes more interesting when you see that 23 became 22. Is this your photo?

Denning body 6 was (22) NLS 437, then NML 349 at some time after 7/1962 (perhaps to replace a lost or damaged plate?), then sold on the same plate as per Industry's photo.

Denning body 8 was (23) NML 349, then became TV 382 in 7/1962 - and became (22) at some time then or after (though I note that it might have been another repaint error a la 47/50). It must have been this one that became NYE 619 at Pioneer Bus Service of Ayr in early 1966.

If Redline, we're looking around the No 39 era......
Not much to go on there Industry, but there's my initial guess.....
