Pictures from two visits to Fentons taken in November 2005 and December 2008. Some of these buses are no longer in service.The 2008 visit unfortunately was when the buses were on their school runs so the depot was fairly empty, however vintage buses were seen operating on the nearby highway.

The Fenton Mitsubishi Centurion would be just another version of the piecart because of it's size. Who needs to buy a Rosa or a Coaster when you can buy this bus. :lol:

Thanks for the photos:) That Mitsubishi bus is adorable... :lol: Actually, I'm from Russia originally and, when I was a kid, we had buses with exact same body but about three or four times the size.

The Mercs that Metro had were fitted with the passenger operated rear door same as the Ansair Scanias and the PMC rigid B10Ms and the MK2 artics.The demo Merc 351 had a normal Bi-Fold type rear door, so the one you mention may be ex Melb operator.
