Why don't you come down to Hobart and visit me??
I'll be briefly visiting Melbourne tomorrow, is that close enough to Hobart?

Met Cowra yesterday at the STM's members' day. I'll definitely go again, as I really enjoyed it. I hope to meet State Transit some day soon as well :D.

Probably because no one knew you were sitting at Manly waiting for random gunzels to drop by and say hi.

Why don't you go on a tour if you want to meet people?

I know nobody, well I have had THE INFORMANT drive a bus I was on once but didn't know that at the time, I think I have had others as drivers but can't remember who.
Explain your reasoning for putting the slowest, worst bus on the longest route. Surely it'd be more efficient to have a newer one. Where's my 8 speed M.A.N?

One person I hadn't seen for a long time and who turned up at Loftus on the big weekend in February was Lord Totteringham (aka T J Tottenham) from the Southern Highlands of New South Wales.

Lord Totteringham was once one of the biggest names on the bus enthusiast scene but seems to have faded into retirement over recent years? I hadn't seen him for many years until we caught up at the Sydney Tram Museum.
