Bus Enthusiast Website

November 11th, 2005 at 12:26am

I stumbled across an unusual and interesting website last week about Australian buses, Bus Australia, something I found interesting is that they seem to know more about the ACTION fleet than ACTION do. Including the fact that some of the new green buses (which I’m not a fan of) were originally detined for King Bros, but for one reason or another were never delivered, and were probably really cheap for ACTION as a result. The site also shows some of the old ACTION buses (the models before the current oldest models…I loved those buses…also shows some of the old leyland buses), and shows some ex-ACTION buses being used elsewhere.

It actually shows just about every bus from everywhere in the country…and even some ferries…well worth a look.

    Wow, great website there, Samuel.

    I didn’t know buses were so interesting. I used to love the sound of the old Leyland buses on the way home from school, always used to sit on the seats in the parts of the bus that rattled and vibrated the most.

    I can still smell the diesel fumes to this day.

    That’s quite a site John, very interesting, thankyou for that.

    cunninglinguist, I always like the sound of the Mercedes 0305 buses which can be seen in the linked photo working in Perisher these days (there are also some others from that fleet scattered across the country).
