Seeing the very interesting series of Collins' Collection historic photos of those early Dennings in multiple numbers prompts me to add another, taken at the Roma St depot in Brisbane, very likely on an Easter Thursday afternoon, as no less than four Series 1 Dennings were loading.
The only coach I can recognize is the second unit in line, No 22.
This would have been circa 1961 or 1962 at the latest.

I wish to voluntarily correct a statement I made in this forum and perhaps elsewhere to the effect that Rex Law had been contractually associated in the early 1970's with Gordon Nuttall in the transport of antimony ore from a mine under the operating name of "Nuttall" which I had stated was one and the same entity.
I have found this was not the case and Gordon Nuttall had no association with the Nuttall Nth Qld antimony mine, and any suggestion that Rex Law was owed any money by Gordon Nuttall is incorrect.
I unreservedly apologize to Mr Nuttall for this unintended misinformation.

Now and again I come across an interesting image or two that I don't think I've previously shared here.
The following two pictures of No 48 were taken on different 'Centre' tours in 1965 by safari captain Bert Abeles.

I think Antony Winstone's attached photo solves which Redline Coach this was.
