To Stand Or Sit New Day Australia Christmas Cruise Weather


November 28th, 2005 at 07:35pm

According to a discussion over at Bus Australia, ACTION are attempting to sell some of their old fleet. The following Renault (Presumably PR100.2 with Ansair MK1 seating) are up for tender:
692, 693, 698, 750, 751, 757, 759, 761, 763, 764, 767, 769, 771, 772, 774, 775, 776, 778, 782

I’m not sure what the procedure is, you would probably need to ring ACTION to find out, but the bidding ends at the end of the month. Unsold buses will be returned to service.

Now, not that I can aford one, or drive one for that matter, but I would personally love to own a particular bus in the 800 series.

    I think I’ll give it a miss.

  • 2. Samuel  |  November 28th, 2005 at 7:45 pm

    Could that have anything to do with the dream you had about being on one?

    “Well MY dream last night was quite bizarre ( as dreams usually are ) . I dreamt I got on a Canberra bus ( perish the thought ) . The bus started moving, but instesd of speeding up, it slowed down, drove up over the gutter, and cut through a park, weaving between trees on the way . Then I woke up ( thank God ) .”

    I’d forgotten about that ! ….. actually, I wouldn’t mind one of those M.A.N. buses . That’s – Maschinefabrik Augsburg Nuremburg …… I’m not sure whether they have any left though ….. if they do, I’m prepared to accept $100 to take it away for them !

  • 4. Samuel  |  November 28th, 2005 at 8:44 pm

    No, the MAN buses have been sold, Bus Australia has details here and here

  • 5. John B1_B5  |  November 28th, 2005 at 10:05 pm

    Ok …. quick quiz … in which town were the “Nuremberg Rallies” held ?
    Was it (a) Augsburg ….. (b) Munich …… (c) Stuttgart ….. (d) Nuremberg ?

  • 6. jingle  |  November 28th, 2005 at 10:43 pm

    look at that is it related to you sam is it your new site?

  • 7. Samuel  |  November 28th, 2005 at 11:58 pm

    No, it’s a TSSH enthusiast having a go at me (I believe it is from the people who brought us the now deleted stories of flying hibiscus and tea towels).

  • 8. Samuel  |  November 29th, 2005 at 12:00 am

    John, I would be tempted to say “D”, but my gut says “C”. I could ask wikipedia but that would be cheating.

  • 9. John B1_B5  |  November 29th, 2005 at 12:33 am

    ha,ha ….no, it’s not a trick question …. the answer is in fact (d) . The Nuremberg Rallies were held by the Nazi party in Nuremberg in the 1930’s.

  • 10. Samuel  |  November 29th, 2005 at 12:39 am

    I thought you might be doing one of those Glenn Wheeler quizzes where he asks an obvious question with a not so obvious answer, gives you the answer and acts like you answered it (and if you’re lucky gives you a prize).

  • 11. John B1_B5  |  November 29th, 2005 at 12:51 am

    Yeah…….it’s kinda like the $100 question on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” .

  • 12. Samuel  |  November 29th, 2005 at 1:01 am

    You needed Sydney and the North Pole…

  • 13. cunninglinguist  |  November 29th, 2005 at 2:57 pm

    Samuel, don’t worry about those OCD Samspan idiots and that website. A lot of TSSH people can’t stand them neither.

    You’re actually getting a lot of admiration over at TSSH for the way you handle the digs at you. Even Caz says you are growing on her.

    Next they’ll be printing tshirts with Samuel on them, Alfred E. Neuman style.

  • 14. jingle  |  November 29th, 2005 at 7:42 pm

    cunninglinguist is a hypocrite

  • 15. Samuel  |  November 29th, 2005 at 8:30 pm

    Why Jingle?

  • 16. jingle  |  November 29th, 2005 at 9:25 pm

    If i can recall corectly cunninglinguist was often commenting and joining in those Hibiscus cupcake tales, Now he changes tune and is against it.
    Wonder what the fence he is sitting on is made of?

  • 17. Samuel  |  November 29th, 2005 at 9:43 pm

    Looking through the archive of those comments in my email, it looks to me like he was making fun of them to some extent. Either that or he has changed his mind, and there is nothing wrong with that.

  • 18. jingle  |  November 29th, 2005 at 10:29 pm

    Guess not .
    So how is life Samuel, what is Canberras’ weather like today?

  • 19. Samuel  |  November 29th, 2005 at 11:48 pm

    It’s been wet. I got rained on a few times today, but it was nice to get some rain. Actually you’ve just reminded about something I was going to write about.

  • 20. cunninglinguist  |  November 30th, 2005 at 12:10 pm


    Samuel is correct there. I was having a bit of fun with the samspan twits, I mean flying hibiscus and teatowels? You’ve gotta laugh, that takes quite an imagination. And I have changed my mind re Samuel. He’s growing on me. But not like a hibiscus flower, thank goodness.

  • 21. jingle  |  November 30th, 2005 at 5:45 pm

    Yes i must say, with TSSH and other comments on Samuel, i have found him to handle himself well, with maturity.

  • 22. jingle  |  November 30th, 2005 at 9:34 pm

    I think those hibiscus people were very witty and rather fiendly to you Sam .
    I miss their comments

  • 23. Samuel  |  November 30th, 2005 at 9:42 pm

    Hmmm, yes, accusing me of murder and going right off topic for no apparent reason was superbly friendly.

    Interestingly, one of them used optusnet dialup, probably just a coincidence…

  • 24. jingle  |  November 30th, 2005 at 9:52 pm

    Im sure no harm was meant!.

    Why is optus dial-up interesting?

    Do you enjoy comedy

    Do you enjoy reality t.v?

  • 25. Samuel  |  November 30th, 2005 at 9:56 pm

    Oh, I just remember someone else once who used optus dial-up and left some odd comments…somebody did that from Grapevine once too…doesn’t matter, just interested me.

    I enjoy comedy, not so keen on reality TV though.

  • 26. jingle  |  November 30th, 2005 at 10:01 pm

    Of course you enjoy comedy…..silly me you commented on Fasiers’ finale.

    Ae you single or busy at the moment with you career?

  • 27. Samuel  |  November 30th, 2005 at 10:06 pm

    Single and busy…this may change…

  • 28. jingle  |  November 30th, 2005 at 11:32 pm

    yes know the feeling, Studying difficult to fit in let alone other things.
    Glad uni is finished now.
