Upcoming tours:

HCVCA display day: Sunday 10 November
Join the HCVCA (Historic Commercial Vehicle Club of Australia) and BCSV: Bus and Coach Society of Victoria for a relaxing Sunday at Yarra Glen Racecourse on Sunday November 10 enjoying the 38th Historic Commercial Vehicle Display.

Entry is $10 per person with under 14s free! Free parking on site.

Inspect some of the hundreds of vehicles on display, from vintage trucks, buses and tractors, to steam engines and older cars.

Bus operators who regularly take part include Driver Bus Lines, Moonee Valley Coaches, Dysons, Ventura, Diamond Coaches, John Usher's Invicta collection, among others.

There will be kids amusements, including face-painting and a jumping castle, and also a Touch A Truck section where kids are able to hop into trucks and have a squizz how they all work.

Enjoy live music all day, rocker cover races, which always draws a huge crowd, trade stalls, and of course delicious food and drink stalls.

HCVCA will also draw the much anticipated Tool Box Raffle at approx 2:30pm.

DISPLAY DAY SHUTTLE BUS

On Sunday 10 November a transfer bus will depart the Driver Bus Lines depot at 45-53 Ricketts Rd, Mt Waverley at 8:30am and Lilydale Station at 9:15am (awaiting train from the City).

The return journey from the display, using the heritage vehicles, will leave Yarra Glen just after 3pm with drop off at Lilydale Station around 3:30pm before travelling back to the depot in Mt Waverley, arriving back at 4:30pm.

There will be an opportunity to change vehicles in Lilydale on the way.

2019 Social Meetings:

BCSV November Meeting: NSW Government Buses over the years: Sunday 17 November
Join the BCSV on Sunday 17 November for our final Sunday social meeting for 2019. We’ll take a comprehensive look back at the government bus operations across both Sydney and Newcastle. Paul Kennelly will present the early years, while Geoff Foster will cover developments over more recent decades.

The timing of the meeting is rather apt, given the recent announcement by the NSW Liberal State Government to privatise the remaining sections of State Transit in inner Sydney.

Our bi-monthly Sunday meetings are held at Hawthorn Tram Depot / Melbourne Tram Museum, 8 Wallen Rd, near the corner of Power St.

Alight Tram Routes 70 & 75 at Riversdale Junction. Alternatively, Hawthorn Station on the Belgrave/Lilydale line is a short 10 min walk away.

Each meeting concludes with a short afternoon tea and chatter on the latest industry gossip.

Both members and guests are welcome to attend, free admission.
