Interesting to see that these still have their fleet numbers on them - typically when retired from EDSA/DECS service, the fleet number is painted over, leaving the remainder in School Bus yellow livery.

An astute observation! Upon studying my photos of this trio of ex DECS Hinos taken in early November, they did have the numbers removed. So Paradise must have readded them.

There was a driver at WBBS that referred to the BX Hino in that cos fleet as a "picnic shed on wheels". :lol: :lol:

Came across these about two months back maybe more traveling through mount white heading towards Sydney, three in convoy.
Followed them to the Hawkesbury and noted how well they went going up the hill on the other side towards Hornsby.

They may be industrial strength basic, but they probably never break down.

That would be a slow old drag to say the least!!.The BX's are not exactly grunt machines.

WoW, someome with bigger XXX heaps than North Sydney, And they have broken down more than once on Wednesday sports transfers. One of my school groups had no one to play once as one of these did not make to the game!

I saw these on my visit to Sydney in September. I didn't take any shots though, as I was focused on getting pictures of The Bristop's broken down Leyland Titan DD. Their sound reminded me of the Hino AK176Ks in Armidale a fair bit (Perhaps it was better to get the DD after all :twisted:).

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

Hi all i recently bought one of these ex school buses in Adelaide #1249 and drove it back to the gold coast i was amazed at the way it drove and how much power it had for such a little motor in a non streamline brick
i love the old girl and i am leaving it as is for the paint job complete with the 1249 on the sides and ends

it isn't any quiet old coach but iv always liked the old school stuff ....

You want to hear how he referred to Waverley gas buses!!!!

My take on BXs`are a Japanese Bedford... Simple, cheap to run, but shameful to be running in 2013.
