Festival of Wheels - HBA 2017

Post by Tas Bus Nut »

The Moonah Rotary conducted the "FESTIVAL of WHEELS" today at the Derwent Entertainment Centre. It was well attended with many rare / collectable cars on display, numerous vintage fire engines and (11) buses / coaches. Unfortunately (before you ask) I DIDN'T venture from the buses (as the Society had a merchandise stall to be manned) However, here is a selection of the buses / coaches on display. I would like to thank the following for their participation on the day : Peter Seabourne (Seabourne Coaches) Andrew Mayne (representing Tasmanian Redline) Kevin Higgins (Society member) Steven Dunsby (representing TTMS) Christian McCallum (representing Greg Burke) Roger Self (Peninsula Coaches) James Dare (representing Cresswell Coaches) Tassielink Transit and the TBCS members that gave their time over the weekend to get Society vehicles presentable.
