Re: Around South Australia 11/11-12/11

Love Goolwa Bus & Coach's livery, a whole bus in 'beige' is quite a sensible colour choice :)

Volvo B58/B10M paint codes.

Anyone able to help?

I'm after some original colour codes for the "Brown Bomber" livery.

More specifically; the lighter brown around the windows and on the bumpers; the custard yellow; and the darker brown band around the waist.

It's toward a very worthy cause! ;)

Re: O - Bahn O305

An in-depth scan of Google Maps reveals nothing, also.

Well, apart from a couple of B59s stored in a yard in the area.

Re: Sydney Outpost Expo MANSL200

Is it a preserved unit on display?
Or is it some sort of showroom for something?

More likely to be an ex-Admet SL200.

Either that, or you spotted ex-1445, the preserved Volvo B10M in STA Speed Stripes livery.

Re: Adelaide MAN NL202's

Lovely buses the NL202 diesels! Although they are low floor, I consider them to be the last of the 'real' buses made for use in Adelaide. Some of you complain about them being slow - ever been in an SL200 by any chance? :P :P :P If I were to buy another bus to restore/preserve it'd be an NL202!!!

Thanks Baytram!

I'd love to see a photo of the brown fabric headrests and armrests that these Volvo's had when new.

A request: Volvo Brown Bomber interiors

Hi all, I'm after interior pictures of our lovely B58/B10Ms, when new/near-new.

Basically I need a guide to work off of when I restore/refurbish ex-1440's interior :D

Thanks!

Re: Metro #1 - Bruce Tilley Collection

Probably the most reliable, best performing bus of their era!

(Though I might be a bit biased, owning and preserving an ex-Adelaide one :P :lol: )

Does the Tasmanian Preservation group have any plans of tracking one down to be saved?

What year did the LHD O305 come to Adelaide?

And do we know any of it's details, so we can trace it's history in Germany?

Also I've noticed on some of the older 'new' artic buses that Southlink operate (the ones with the seat in the middle doorway), whenever they go around corners something screeches really badly, it's not nice on the ears when you're on one of these buses going through an area that is full of tight r...
