Ongoing Photo Request - 2019

Postby Ribble » Tue Oct 08, 2019 8:13 am

Ongoing 1 Photo Request 2019 - STA New Deliveries.

This is a Catch Up 2019 version.

Can anyone supply me photos of current STA buses please....usually "New Deliveries".....
for the on-going Fleet Number Photo Collection that will eventually go to the Sydney Bus Museum..***

I Need photos of any individual buses from within the below "Fleet Number" groups .....
I try and get four photos of any buses within the Fleet Number Group if possible.

The list below was last updated - - 18 November 2019

Currently I'm seeking photos of or from these STA Fleet Number Groups

2933-2942* Volvo B8RLE Vol Optimus 2018

3006-3022 Volvo B8RLE Bustech VST 2019
3023-3032 Scania K310UB Bustech VST 2019
3033-3038 Volvo B8RLE Bustech VST 2019
3039-3055 Volvo B8RLE Vol Optimus 2019
3056-3065? Volvo B8RLE CC CB80 2019
3066-3070>> Volvo B8RLE Bustech VST. 2019
Most are all awaiting delivery / or on the road but no published pics as yet.

Buses shown with * after the number were noted as transferred to Transit Systems, but I need photos of them as STA if possible please
as I don't have photos of buses in those Groups.

Its getting VERY hard for me to source photos....ANY HELP appreciated please to keep this work going......thanks for any contributions.

Sorry, I don't use Facebook etc.

*************************************************************************************************************************

I seek actual photos of 4 of the buses within a Fleet Number Group, not "Photo-shopped" ones to fill a Number gap.

Email photo to me direct Ribble@xtra.co.nz please.....or....
Post on here with details - location/date/photographer.

Your sent Photos are not published elsewhere....they are only printed and added to the Historic Albums.

Many thanks for all help.

***For those who don't know....

I have been collecting photos of DGT/UTA/STA buses since 2004. I now have 5 photo albums which cover "Fleet Number Groups" of buses starting from the year 1933.

Each album contains several photos of buses within those sequential Number Groups from year 1933 - eg Mercedes 0500LE's within Fleet Numbers 1812-1969; Volvo B12BLEA's within Fleet Numbers 2128-2137 etc.

Because in 2009, the RTA started 'random/individual' issues of ST Registration Plates to new buses and not issue 'Groups of (say) 20 buses of the same chassis/body type', there are some individual buses of different chassis types, now within the sequential Number Groups ....eg Nos 1998; 1999; 2002; 2026; 2233; 2234; 2256 and recently 2784.

As I'm keeping to sequential Fleet Numbers, a photo of each "Individual" bus - such as 2784 above - is also sought, although they 'all look the same' as other buses of the same chassis type/body. There are some 'groups' with only 2 buses in that Group, flanked each side by a longer fleet number series of a particular Chassis / Body combination.

This photo album collection and my Fleet Lists, will be passed onto the Sydney Bus Museum when I pass away.

2913 is an CB80 body I believe as I've seen pictures on it on Facebook, unless I'm mistaken?

Hi. As I say ....I don't have FACEBOOK......

Thanks for pointing out my 'mistake'....yes its a CB80 on BusAus lists......have changed it in the list.

ANY pics sent to my email would be appreciated PLEASE....

My format is to have 4 different photos of ANY of the buses 'within the Fleet Number Group' eg from within the Groups 2893-2903; 3006-3022 etc etc ...the 4 photos fit the albums and gives a selection of both sides / front rears etc.

Its been over a year since any were sent over and I have to reply on you guys over in Sydney these days.....

Thanks to pics supplied by 3 photographers over there, I have been able to drastically reduce the 'wanted list'.

The edited version is at the head of this Topic.

If you can assist with photos, that's a great help.

Many thanks
