You mean the one that sold out quickly? I wanted one because I have early childhood memories of seeing mark 2s lined up by the Anzac memorial near the Ryde Civic Centre when arriving on the other side of Devlin St on the route 89 from Eastwood.
Bus drivers they're so funny :lol: -in the head :| .
Why do they portray multiculturalism as some sort of gift we were bestowed? We never asked for it.

Plainly, they underestimated their popularity and had a peculiar aversion to making money!
Yet they made some really weird choices for other models that ended up selling really slow.
Pity they didn't get their mark II Leopard model into production before they folded. It would have sold up a storm and hopefully they would have learnt from their Mark II Mercedes mistake.

THE GUY who took over at trax had made a model of a mk2 leopard show a protype on the site but sad he passed away! they only made a few of the ryde dept route 510 but made hundreds of the L20 parramatta merc which they couldn't give away the most popular model they made less the others to many thats why they came undone!

I am located in Brisbane and have TRUX model TX19 the Ryde Depot route 510 for sale. The fleet number 1951 gives it away as the prototype.
Remember seeing the real one in service on Victoria Rd many times.
I also have AUBUS 0001 Limited Edition (1291) Mercedes Benz 0405NH route 380 fleet number 1275. This one also seems to be in short supply as I have seen it for sale at $200.
Also have a number of other Sydney TRUX models which I will be disposing of soon. All including the above are in boxes.
