Launceston Motor Show 2019

Postby Tas Bus Nut » Fri Apr 05, 2019 2:46 pm

The Tasmanian Bus & Coach Society attended the 2019 Launceston Motor Show, displaying (3) vehicles this year, including the first
showing of their latest acquisition, 1987 Mercedes Benz OH1316 / Ansair TAS (ex Crawn Motors / ex Metro 360). This year we were
joined by Calow Coaches with their latest purchase and (3) members from the Clipper Club of Australia. This provided a expansive
variety of vehicles ranging in age from 1947 > 1998. Below are some photos of a great day held at the Launceston Showgrounds. :mrgreen:

Hi Cordes Express :D Crawns donated the bus to the Society June 2018, however we only took delivery in January this year. This was it's first "official" outing with the Society. It has now been transferred to the south, had a clean-up and awaiting club registration. It will be displayed again this June long weekend.
