This brought back some memories. When it had just been acquired by Comealong Tours (still in Selwood livery and regd MO 5261) my wife and I did a two day tour to Floriade in Canberra in this coach. This was about the worst tour we have ever been on. They could not be blamed for the weather - it bucketed down the whole weekend and we saw very little of Floriade and on the first day we were forced to have lunch under Parliament House.
But the driver did not seem to know the way back through Sydney - first dropping off in Blacktown and then dropping off in Bankstown - it seemed to take hours to get between those two places. And the hostess seemed to be asleep most of the tour.
We have never used Comealong Tours again except for a day trip which was organised by a Probus Club last year which was somewhat better.

So here we see the coach again in Canberra at Floriade time.
