Hi Dave great pics of some Nevilles buses :D :D
Thanks for posting them, do you have any more Nevilles pics you can post?

Some more infomation on the buses is as follows;
4763 was sold to Surfside as 548 but now withdrawn :( or scrapped :cry:
5506 was sold to Surfside as 550 but now withdrawn :( or scrapped :cry:
5493 which was the same as the two above was sold to Surfside as well as 562 and is still in service :D I believe.
4231 is with Pubtrek :D as MO 5114
Both 7056 and 8442 went to Park Ridge ( in BCC colours :shock: ) and now sold ??

Very interesting fleet, shame they are no longer here, especially the pair of Scanias, very unique and modern as STA's CNG prototype.


These Scanias still got the back door now?

Nevilles had four of those Scanias. They are copies of Tasmanian Scanias operated by the Metro. Which is funny as when Neville´s became Busabout they ended up in a colour scheme the same as the Metro in Tas :wink: .

In photos I have seen of these buses at Park Ridge still have the rear doors intact.
