Re: Willunga Charter.

Thanks for the kind comments guys and the great pics Scott. Yes the fleet has certainly changed in the last few years. Loving the HiCap BCI’s and the sophistication of the Scania Tourings. They have definitely been a winner. Must post some updates to our fleet as it’s nearing 70 coaches now along wi...

Yes, but unfortunately the description doesn't match the actual condition of the bus - buyer beware!

Re: Briscoe's: trying to get a history of this company.

I saw a very old Briscoe's bus on Morphett Rd yesterday! An old green bus that would have had about 25-30 seats. It showed Willunga on its destination if my memory serves me right. This one? http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc90/systemimprover/Transparency0042-1.jpg (Gary Davey photo from 1992.) ...

Re: Genesis Tour & Charter in Liquidation

Their 2007 Daewoo has been up for sale for a few weeks now, this is most probably from loosing school bus contracts. Actually to the contrary Dave! Genesis won their contract back, operated it for about six months then sold the contract to Fleurieu Bus Hire. So I would have imagined that would have...

Re: Coaches doing rail subs (Bustitutes)

Thanks for the info Busben. Is it a low floor job or stepped? Anybody here been on it at all? How does it go up the hill?

Re: Coaches doing rail subs (Bustitutes)

One of the reasons I ask is because yesterday there was a coach that came into Noarlunga Interchange that was signed as (I think) a MAN Demonstrator S120 series or something like that. Had Queensland numberplates on it and had done an N5 I believe. Anyone know anything more about this vehicle in pa...

Re: 1928 Chevrolet Bus up for sale

Hi, I have just stumbled on this old thread and thought I would update as to the whereabouts of this bus. It was purchased from the NMM Birdwood by Willunga Charter P/L and is now a part of its historic fleet of vehicles. The actual history of this vehicle is a bit sketchy, but it is an original 12 ...

Re: Vintage Bus Hire

There are a fair few conditions, one of which is that the vehicle is classed as vintage ( atleast 50 yrs old) and that it is being used for commercial purposes.
Im pretty surw that a B10M would not pass or everyone would be doing it. :)
