As I mentioned above, there were various changes to the itinerary, each way, over the years, depending on road and vehicle improvements. The move from the Peterkin Inn at Nambucca Heads to the Plantation Hotel at Coffs Harbour was enabled by the opening of the Dennis Bridge over the Hastings River at Port Macquarie in 1961. One regret (certainly of mine) was to no longer enjoy Ken DeVere's beautifully prepared reef fish breakfasts at Nambucca!

For what it's worth I just tried to make a new post, yet for the life of me I now can't figure out how to attach a photo......
Something's changed, but I'm not sure what....
Anyone had the same problem?
Or is it just my senility onset....?

Here's a shot that came through too late for inclusion in my book, "Rex Law's Redline - The Biggest Little Bus Co in Australia" which is finally about to be published in print and e-book formats.
The interesting story behind the photo of Laurie MacBeth and the Sydney based mechanic John Edwards in the foreground is contained in Chapter 20, covering the year 1963.
It describes the replacement of No 21's TS3 crankshaft at Renner Springs, NT, during a 22 Day Safari tour. The inverted motor can be seen in the photo after removal from its mounts in the engine/baggage bay.
One half of one of the TS3's side rocker arms is very visible below John's hand.
Note the sloping section of the dividing partition, beside Laurie, on the saloon side of which was mounted the fixed rear seat back.
