Nice. If you get anymore photos, please upload them. If you can get any SL200's and Butterboxes, that would be great as well.

How much more modern do the Austral Metroliners look in those shots! Bt colours make them look old n tired. Ex 624 looks good in the new paint but that front end is a bit bland IMO.

Found this one in Wharf Street the other day...seemed to have a load of young lads having a great afternoon...evening. Moreton :wink:
Great to see some of the older models being put back to work, not sure if we had more cheery people on a normal West End service.

There were a few ex-BT B10Ms (?) that went down to Sita within the last few years. There were photos posted here on the site somewhere if you look for them.

Thanks,

Life after Brisbane Transport

Postby racingnathan » Sat Nov 09, 2013 4:14 pm

See it at San Sisto/ St Martins, Carina everyday, usually I'm driving when I see it and unable to get a shot of it. Basically blue strip on the bottom has stayed and the rest is painted white.

They only schools I see them do are San Sisto, St Martins and Lourdes Hill.
