I saw this baby parked in Ultimo and got out to take these shots.
Not sure what the chassis is but it is front engined as it has a Bedford style engine cover next to the driver.

Well if this bus is the one at Sydney Boys High School - see
http://www.sydneyboyshigh.com/index.php ... 10807.html

Another School Bus!
Mr Ayre has scoured the electronic market and secured us a newer 47- seater. It has just been delivered and with just 330,000 kilometres on the clock it is a relative youngster compared to the >950,000 kms on the existing old bus that has served us well for three years longer that it was supposed to. I am pleased that more students will be able to be transported to sporting venues, events and activities using the bus. I know that students will respect the school property that has been acquired for their benefit. The old bus will be sold as soon as possible.


I'd suggest the ex-ACTION MAN would only end up as scrap

If I'd never seen that body style again it wouldn't have been a day too soon! A bit off topic, I know, but are the Oliveri's Worldmasters with this bidy still in service?

when i was at my great aunts in Buladelah 6 months ago i can rember seeing this bus on the side of the road. i Think, although more than likely wrong, that there was another bus next to it or near it there

I know nearly 10 years old
I traced the phone number on the back of the bus 02 4997 4879 to Sam the Waterman 5 Flora Close, Buladelah.

When I looked at that address in Google maps - dated back in 2008 unfortunately - I cam up with this.
So it looks as though the bus above was replaced by a Hino. I could not enlarge it to get a rego.
