Double Decker Buses in New Zealand

Postby Tim Williams » Thu Jul 19, 2018 11:12 am

With all the new double deckers entering service in various towns in NZ , some with local bodies and the 2 axle electrics in Wellington, it would be great a list could be compiled along the lines of the Australian one.

So, perhaps someone could put together such a list, otherwise provide the info. in this topic and I will put it on a spreadsheet and post it.

Thanks, in advance!!
