Winter Afternoon - ACTION and Hopkinsons

Post by Sir Pompously »

Hi All,
Was out today with Irisbus Rider hunting down STA's 2108, the 14.5m Metrobus. While out I grabbed shots of other buses around the capital. It was a cold winters day, a maximum according to BOM of about 8 degrees. Here are the photos, and I hope you enjoy them all.

A Sticker which is unique to Canberra, 'These Doors open only at Interchanges'. These blue and white stickers have been on the rear doors of ACTION's buses for as long as I an remember!

I wonder how long the 'These Doors open only at Interchanges' stickers have been stuck on the rear doors of the ACTION Renault/MACK PR100.2 mkII's for? Good to see an example of some ACTION signage.

That was raised in another thread (not sure if it was here or on ACT Bus)

I think it was established that they arrived sometime between about 85 and 90.
