I saw it in the exact same spot 2 days ago, by the way its sitting it doesn't look to healthy. It's a AEC Swift looks like a 400 series.

AEC Swift AH691, with Denning & Co. S.A. body. It does look a little tired, but its done well running from Perth to the Gold Coast thats a big trip for an old girl at 70kph at that age. Good photos too by the way.

cheers

I saw this exact same bus in the same place while I was at the Gold Coast a few days ago.
"100 speed limited... by drivetrain."

I will report and cover any significant bus events from the Armidale region.

This is not an AEC. Going by the wheel centres, it is a Daimler Roadliner.
Uber and bus services are very similar. Customers who don't deserve the service they are getting and blame defaulting to drivers.

Having a closer look, I think you are right. Note:

. the front door appears to have been converted from a jackknife door (in lieu of a two-leaf one the Swifts had)
. there are two driver's vents at the front plus the top of the vents are lower than the top of the headlights (there is only an offside one on a Swift plus it is positioned higher)
. the hatch immediately behind the rear axle is identical to a Roadliner
. at the end of the rub-strip is an intake grille, again as per a Roadliner rather than a Swift

There ya go! How's that for rivet counting! :roll:

Interesting to note how the rear is sitting very low. Were Roadliners airbag equipped? Swifts were on steel springs (coil).
This is indeed one great discovery to see a Roadliner still plying along. These had a Cummins engine and 3 speed Allison auto? This would probably make it more suitable as a long distance camper than an AEC Swift.

I thought they had 4sp Allisons - either way, yes, definitely better suited to highway running than a ZF torque converter. This makes it only the second Daimler Roadliner known to have been registered in WA.

I hope one of the locals is able to get the gen.

I'd love to assist but regrettably I am now very much back at work. Somebody else down here should be able to take a peek if it is still there...
