In the railway hobby, what looks impossible to some can be easy for me: just a few subtle clues can suffice. I have done two tram mysteries and a train one already this morning.

More from Jeff Bounds. I a line of imported buses at Appleton Dock on Thurs.7.11.13. I think that they are all Volvo, but I don't know the builder. AFAIK in recent times the imports have been from Marco Polo, but that could be Spain, or Brazil or Argentina. The other photo shows the two Greyhound ones on a delivery drive, later in the day. I am guessing to Driver Brothers (Clayton North), the Greyhound franchisee.

I'm not expecting anyone to identify the rear truck, but it might be instant recognition for some.

Thanks all.
From the yahoo group busphotosaustralia: Irizar (not Iveco).
The company builds in Spain, Morocco, Mexico and Brazil, on a variety of platforms.
Most Australian ones are from the Brazil plant. I don't know the shipping route. There have been Scania ones; the current imports are two- and three-axle Volvo.
From Appleton Dock (Melbourne, Vic.), they go to an Irizar pre-delivery service facility in Dandenong.

Roderick, when I said "IVECO" I was referring to the make of truck at the rear of the convoy.

NOT the brand of BUS.......

Sorry for any confusion. :-[

My fault for going crosseyed, and thanks for the Iveco.
Here is the third (and final) of the Irizar-delivery photos.
It also has a truck to identify, and this time I'll interpret the response corrently.

Roderick, the Truck's an IVECO,
& It'd be (very) safe to assume.
It's the same truck as in the previous Photo....

Thanks for the second Iveco id.

Here is another Jeff Bounds crop, which should be easy identification.
