Re: Rex Law's Redline Coaches

It appears to Lyndhurst in 1969 Yes, Brazell's garage gives it away for me. This was in northern South Australia, where the Strzalecki Track and the Oodnadatta Track came together, close to the old Ghan railway line. I can't decide which Redline unit it was......although very few were fitted with t...

Maybe you should go to the top of the board index, where you will find a category "New Users/Ask a Simple Question" where you can ask your question and be pretty sure of getting a helpful answer. Hope this helps....

Re: Rex Law's Redline Coaches

Touring the 'Outback' in the 1950s and 1960s always instilled a proud sense of adventure in the mostly 'city slicker' participants.... Travelling the thousands of kms of unsealed roads and roughing it under canvas at night seemed to bring out their inner 'Chips Rafferty.' So much so that many who tr...

Upper shot is the Superior bodied Ford R226 No 110 or 111.
Middle shot is another Superior bodied R226.
Lower shot is a Watt Bros R226, maybe ex-Redline No 88.

The move from the Peterkin Inn at Nambucca Heads to the Plantation Hotel at Coffs Harbour was enabled by the opening of the Dennis Bridge over the Hastings River a...

Here's the Calga Kiosk (looking north) ten years later, in 1963, (with acknowledgment to Robert Young for the image) long after Redline had moved on to the Kangy Creek roadhouse at Ourimbah. Both now of course consigned to oblivion. Directly beside and to the rear of the kiosk there was rocky bushla...

Industry wrote:So Rex's TV plates were new to Redline
Two of the plates came with Rex's purchase of Jim Duthie's "Tourist Service of NSW" business in 1959.
I don't have the history of the other four, but I'm sure they were originally new to Redline.

Re: Rex Law's Redline Coaches

Industry wrote:Looselion Where the Redline NSW TV plates bought off Moores or was it they bought the plates and 3 coaches off Rex.
In 1969 Rex sold all of Redline's six TV plates to Archie Moore, three of them attached to R226 Fords.
I understand Archie re-sold the six plates separately from the coaches in 1973.
