Hobart Tour @ Wisbys (last leg)

Postby Tas Bus Nut » Wed Apr 22, 2009 10:44 am

And finally our last vist was to a school bus operator south of Hobart @ Margate. This visit was popular also, because of the variety of vehicles on display, especially the B58 Volgren artics and B10M Adelaide artics. Also of interest were the ex Westbus B10Ms and selection of ex MTT (Hobart) B58 Volvos. A fitting finale to what everyone has said to be an exciting, enjoyable and well organised tour.
I wish to thank EVERYONE who attended, and must point out, without the help of OPERATORS, this tour would not have eventuated. I thank Tony Sim (CEO Metro) Peter O'Driscoll (owner O'Driscolls) Phil Lang/David Batchelor (members TTM), John Gregory (owner Red Decker Co) and Doug Wisby (owner Wisbys). My sincere thanks to you all, AND thank you to all participants for your comerardary (I think thats spelt wrong) excitement, knowledge and your company on a wonderful day. THANK YOU!!
**All we need to do is buy the original idea man a new alarm clock for next time :lol: :lol: :lol:

What a great selection of Volvos that Wisbys have got. A couple of my favorites would have to be the two ex Westbus NSW Volvo B10m MKI's in the Wisbys fleet.

AFTER he had brought them, he refurbished (1) and then was told the buses were too old, so gets no capital from them. That's why the other one hasn't been touched yet. Don't know what he's going to do with them. 1whoknows OR E.L.Wood may know? They were talking with Danny Wisby for a while.
