ACTION Livery Question

Post by 385BUZ »

Hi,

I was just wondering if any ACTION buses delivered in the green livery have been repainted in the new Light Blue livery? If so can you please reffer me as to where to get pictures

Thanks!
Regards,

I was more asking if there were any other models REPAINTED in the new livery.

No repaints into the blue livery, likewise all of the Renaults retain the orange livery.

Not a full repaint, but bus 400 has had the front repainted/wrapped in blue and grey. This was done when the 'Rainbow' AOA was put on it a few years back. It still has an AOA but at various times it hasn't. There are pictures of it with blue front and green sides.

Interestingly other Green buses with AOA have kept the green front's. Think 400 got the blue as it blended in with the Rainbow AOA better.

After the rainbow vinyls were removed, 400 returned to use with the blue front and white and green side and rears, before receiving new AOA vinyls. ACTION don't appear to ever repaint their buses, just touching up as required. Wasn't a problem when ACTION used to dispose of buses after 12-15 years with interstate operators eagerly snapping them up. But with average and maximum age restrictions, there isn't the demand and ACTION, like all other government operators, is retaining buses for their full lives, the oldest Renaults are now rapidly approaching 30.
