Toowong Depot had some coaches on loan for a short period of time. Can't remember the reason.

The information contained with the photo appears to have a few inaccuracies.

Can't find it in Brisbane Transport? -No wonder, they have only once operated Coaches these were the X Greyhound Scanias, while the gas buses had issues back in 2004. These Coaches were run out of the now defunct Richlands depot. Maintenance was undertaken at Toowong depot.

The rego dating is about right 1996 for a DEH registration, however it appears to be a Volgren Qld Coach, which would mean it would have to be around about 10 years old even when the photo was taken.
Andrew21 beat me to the observation of 18m in length? I've known a few people to make inaccuracies in measuring vehicles, however usually these err on the shorter side of the yard stick.

Certainly a bit of misinformation regarding Brisbane Transport... It was owned by Gold Coast Tourist Shuttle / Gold Coast Coaches, bought in 1995 from Clipper Tours and sold on in late 1997. It is a 1985 Volvo B10M with Volgren (Qld) body, 45 seater.

Indeed, see attached another example of a B10M Volgren that was at Gold Coast Coaches.

It should be this unit. Of course it was 832 DEH prior to 276 FKY.
