More Perth Bus memories

Postby LocoLes » Sun Feb 28, 2016 1:54 pm

One day when I get hold of a decent slide scanner I will replace the attached photos of c.1981 Perth buses when Leyland and Hino buses were still in service. While not perfect photos, the buses and background scenery of 35 years ago at Midland terminal and bus lay-over at Barrack Street Pier are captured. Also included is a 1995 photograph of Cityrail DMU806 in service in Auckland NZ [ex Transperth 806] :mrgreen:

Love the taxis in the fifth photo. Buses are not bad either!
