It's a Denning - but not a conventional type.

It's a Coach Design body on a Denning Manufacturing chassis - ex Mojosurf.

Four treated for injuries after bus crashes in ditch

A bus crashed into a ditch after reportedly running off the road at Weyba Downs this morning.

The Sunbus crash happened about 6.50am on Walter Hay Dr near the Emu Mountain Rd roundabout.

One patient is reportedly suffering back injuries and the driver was being treated by ambulance officers inside the bus.

Four people were on board at the time of the crash.

One person was transported to Nambour Hospital and another was taken to Noosa.

No other vehicles were involved in the incident.

They have an artic on that run all week. Occasionally you see one land on a run that has stuff other than just 555s, always a fun sight to see and ride on.

EDIT: So they didn't have an artic on Wed or this afternoon.

On the rail side of things, seen 5 22** series locomotives withdrawn and stored at Port of Brisbane with all lettering painted out, just numbers on display.
