Brisbane Livestock Transport Hendra

Postby Car177 » Fri Mar 27, 2009 10:50 pm

Brisbane Livestock has been in business for at least 50 years, a lot of the vehicles have been around just as long.
Lately cab and chassis have been used with the horse box mouted on the back.
In the past truck chassis were cut and shut to provide a low section in the centre for loading purposes, bus chassis were also used, mostly they were fitted up with Leyland running gear and Comet engines, wider chassis were narrowed to accomodate the Comet running gear.
Several sea damaged Scania bus chassis are also in service. Leyland Mastiff's are also the basis of many floats.
When the older trucks get replaced with newer ones they tend to get parked and left, the depot yard is full of old trucks, last time I was there they were also parked on the street.
I bet no one has put horse transporters on here before.

Hi there, I know this is an old thread, but hoping you might be able to help us! We have bought an ex Brisbane Livestock Truck that we are working on, it's in great condition but needs some work & we are having trouble getting parts because the chassis numbers are not recognised etc. Can you help me or point me in the direction of anyone who can?
It's one of the ones built on a Scania bus chassis - a bit of rust but not too bad.

I photographed that one a few weeks ago,I had stopped nearly next door for a coffee, I did know at one stage what the chassis model was but it is now forgotten, if I could get the chassis number I could at least find what model it is.
Cliff Keong bought a few of these, damaged deck cargo I beleive.

Regarding BLT are they still going? I remember a couple of associations BCC had with BLT. Maybe not looking and havn't been around Hendra for awhile.

Firstly flashback to 1981, Works dept of BCC we were rebuilding an AEC motor for a Coles Crane and the flywheel was cracked through and Brisbane Livestock Transport came to the rescue with one.

End of the 90's and BLT bought some of the frames made by Austral on the B10L's which were on bus nos 597 & 598 which had been removed to make way for the Volgren body.

Those Scanias were pretty flash in their day, a big step up from the Leylands and AECs and could reallu do justice to the racehorses they were carrying.
Who bleedin thanked me? I was just doin my job
