There is a good mix of Denning, Coach Design, Northcoast, Autobus, the odd Coach Concepts, PMC, MotorCoach, actually you would find just about any Australian built Coach Body in NZ

The first picture describes that quite well. Isn't that an A.B Denning coach behind #559?

Thanks,

Yes that is an A B Denning. Its fleet # 527, one the very last Merc O404 ever built. It was originally built to be sold in Australia in 2003, but no one was interested in it. It was then shipped to NZ in 2004 where it also sat for months before being bought by Hudson Owen. When Hudson Owen closed down, Keith Hardy bought it and operated her as an owner driver for Scenic Coachlines under AAT Kings livery. In mid 2008 she was then sold off to TR Group and then leased back into the Scenic fleet and followed on when Scenic was bought by Johnston's Coachlines in late 2008. It is still operating in the JCL fleet today.
