Ongoing 1 Photo Request 2017 - STA New Deliveries.

Postby Ribble » Mon Jan 02, 2017 3:57 pm

Happy New Year to all Bus Enthusiasts wherever you are.

Once again I submit my Annual Request for photos of STA new deliveries.
Many thanks for the support over the past years.

This is the 2017 version. I will Update reguarly throughout the year. I get online here about every 2 weeks.

Can anyone supply 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 - - 12 October 2017

Currently I'm seeking photos of or from the Fleet Number Groups ......

New STA Deliveries.

2840 - 2847 Volvo B7RLE / CC "CB80" - just need a few of the last of this number Group.

2848 - 2853 MAN ND323F / Gemilang "Eco Double-Deck" The new Double Deckers for "B" Line....first D/D for STA since 1973


Older buses..

Nos 3972-3982 Mercedes 814D (Leased) Vario Denning B29F from 1997..
Im seeking photos of 3972 / 73 / 78 / 81.

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

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

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.
Photos are not published elsewhere....only printed and added to the Historic Album

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.

Hi. Thanks for this.

I only collect photos of STA owned vehicles......so if they are STA, then yes please....

I see them listed on New Buses as 2848 -2853

2844 Volvo B7RLE was the last Volvo listed.
"Missing" from the lists seem to be Fleet No's 2845 - 2847

Hi. many thanks for this./

Unfortunately, I am unable to Copy / Paste these link photos so I can print them into 6x4.

I need to be sent actual digital print links.

Many thanks though for the help

I was asked about the Photo Albums ( from off Topic)

These are what I'm compiling. Photos of each Group of Fleet Numbers.

There are currently 6 Albums with approx 200 photos per Album, starting with buses from 1933 up to the new MAN Double Deckers.

As Instagram generates dynamic links (i think), you need to follow these instructions to get pictures off Instagram:
1. Open the pages i sent you
2. Right click anywhere and choose view page source, or Ctrl+U on Chrome.
3. Scroll down to the line that says
<meta property="og:image" and open the link on the same line.
4. You can now copy/paste this photo
