The Crawn motors fleet appears to be well maintained and well presented IMO. The Bosnjak JBJ International reminds me of the one that Red Bus Service The Entrance had previously.

I notice on a bus sales website that 9 SB2565,10 BC3011 and an Isuzu are for sale.Surely there isn't anything wrong with 39 yo. buses, if they weren't safe they wouldn't have got that old.

Perhapes they may be over the Government age limit ,I thought that most Bedfords would have been by now.His fleet looks well looked after.Thanks for putting them up.Tasmania is interesting place for old buses but for how much longer.

I would be interested to know what the Government age limit is for buses down in Tasmania. There is some great old buses down there.

Have to admit Greg, I AM NOT A BIG FAN of the new system. However, I have been back at work and haven't had a decent break whilst back. I'm off this Sat/Sun/Mon, so hope to get out on the Monday in particular to see what's about. Haven't seen O'Driscolls NEW Express coach yet. Have to find out when it's arriving!!! (Unfortunately lost a little interest with new format) Neil

Have checked out a Express body on a Volvo B12LE and they look good,should suit the Merc OH1830LE well,I presume it will be low entry?

YEP. Sorry meant to add the LE at the end of 1830. Apparently not happy with the CB60 body. Can't be any worse than Metro's.
