Hey All,

I took these pictures during my training when I started at Ventura. i also started my training in Ventra Tiger No #8.

At the time, some of the other drivers wondered why I was taking pictures of the buses...!

Great shots,
Ah seeing number 8 at Garden CIty brings back memories when I had it on a 251 down there and then a 250 to Latrobe when it was 117 :D

Really!!? What did you use for the desto and route number!?

Did you just have it blank or ventura displayed with no route number? Or were u able to get one of the boards to place in the front window??

Yeah don't worry its not what it looks like, the ground down in the old bone yard as they called it was once a service station.. the land there was not even and there was a dirt mound towards the rear of that bus.. its the first thing i noticed when I saw it, I thought that some bus fanatic had jumped the fence and tried to steal the wheels.. LOL.. ! As at the time they had a problem with the 'tiger' emblems being stolen off the front of these tigers.

Hi, We have bought Bus no. 80 and are currently working on making her into our home. We would love some good clear copies of any photos you may have of her.
