Re: Leyland Leopard

Gday Ben, I bought my blue leopard for $1600 but incomplete, still runs but not road worthy. I am currently doing work on it so I can get it moved and to restore it back to How it was at Burwood. I do know of a couple around Sydney but unsure if they are or would be for sale. I do know of another o...

Leyland Leopard

Hi everyone,
I'm in the Sydney area. I am wondering how much second hand Leyland Leopards sell for roughly? Are there any for sale at the moment around Sydney that are complete?

Re: Eastwood History

One ever so slight problem. Epping Road is just as bad before Wicks Road. North Ryde has fallen victim to saturated development without commensurate upgrades to road infrastructure.

Re: Leopard 1607 found in Harden

I did my leopard test in 1607 out of Brookvale depot in 1987. My driving instructor picked this one out purposely because of its superior mechanical condition. I also remember seeing this bus beside a house as I drove through Harden many times about 5 years ago and then the house was demolished and...

Re: Leopard 1607 found in Harden

How much would a bus in 1607's condition cost? I have heard of Leopard's being bought for around $2000.

Re: Maitland tram remnants

SPER published a book "Maitland Tramway Ventures" back in 1965. The authors mentioned then that the only visible remnants were a couple of shaved corners, and a couple of tramway cottages near the former depot in Victoria St. The location of the former terminus in the station forecourt is possibly ...
