Post by Car177 »

Some pictures that I took in Adelaide exactly 7 years ago in April 2002.
I have identified them as best as I can.

How many B59s ran to the end with TA series plates?

I remember 1286 and 1300 at Serco still wearing TA plates somewhere around this date.

And they still serve as school buses (Back for term 2 at Islamic College?) and one has completed its life as a charter bus just weeks ago!

1256 was a Camden Park Bus when I was working for Torrens Transit back in 2002.
All the Torrens Volvo B59's had TA plates.

I haven;t seen Adelaide B59's running around this year in Queensland, there were still few kicking around last. Koala Koaches on the Gold Coast were using them last year on footy shuttles.
