ACTION MAN No 510...pics sought.

Postby Ribble » Sat Oct 30, 2010 5:01 am

I am seeking near and offside photos of ACTION No 510, MAN SG 192 / MAN Artic.
Can anyone assist please....???

Email direct to Ribble@xtra.co.nz please if you can assist.

Reason ....... I am currently involved in a long term collection of assorted buses operating in Sydney.
The collection is for Private use only.

One Section is "Demonstrators" and Im collecting photos of assorted 'Demonstrator' buses especially those used by UTA in Sydney.

The MAN SG 192 / MAN Artic was demonstrated to Sydney (June 1976), and then onsold to ACTION as No 510.

Photos of 510 IN Sydney have not been found, so Im happy to get any pics of 510 in Canberra.
I visited Canberra a few years ago, but I dont have a photo of 510.

Others sought
Just in case....Im also seeking photos of other 'demonstrators/assorted buses'.....

M/O4255 The Volvo B58 / Hess artic. Volvo demonstrator of 1976
MUQB488 Mercedes 0305G / Bolton Artic. MTT Perth No 488 of 1988
M/O 1679 MAN / Custom Coaches of 1991
M/O8560 MAN 11.180 / Volgren of 1994


Many thanks
