Appleton Dock (Melbourne, Vic.): Five new buses. Thurs.7.11.13. (Jeff Bounds).
I can't read any of the names.
An earlier photo showed Irizar (Spain) buses for Greyhound: this could be another.
Perhaps the others are all from the same maker?
I can't find Adams in Australian Bus Fleet Lists, but the nose name could be DOM.
From ATDB: Greyhound 3 axle would most likely be a Volvo B13R or one of the first of the B11Rs, as the crossover occurred around early 2013. Going by the photo date, probably a B11R . The Adams units would be Volvo B9Rs.
Footscray Rd (West Melbourne, Vic.): New Greyhound buses. Thurs.7.11.13. (Jeff Bounds)
Got a mate who drives for Sid Fogg from Newcastle who tells me its more cost effective to buy the Volvo or Scania chassis from euro have it shipped to Brazil to have the coachbody built then brought here. Australian labour laws his boss blames...
Have you ever travelled in one of the new Greyhound Irizars ? worst coach I've ever been in the older models were far more spacious.
In order that the labour of centuries past may not be in vain during the centuries to come... D. Did
Footscray Rd (West Melbourne): New Greyhound buses leaving Appleton Dock on their delivery drive. Tues.12.11.13. (Jeff Bounds). Even on the full-size scan, I can't see any form of Irizar sign or logo, but in any case it would surely be the same for all countries of manufacture. Hence, based on other deliveries, these are most likely Volvo chassis, from the Brazil factory. I wonder by what route they were shipped?
Hamilton (Newcastle, NSW): The current bus depot. Wed.24.7.13. (Jeff Bounds)
I am guessing that this was the former tram depot: the roof design, and the
fact that it came in a packet with other 'now' for 'then' photos.
The identifiable buses are: 3366 [possibly 3365], 3559 [for once not
matching its numberplate, MO5372] and _551 [almost certainly four digits].
From Australian Bus Fleets:
3366 m/o 3366 Mercedes-Benz O405 PMC "Mark 5" 7637 3/90 B43D Corporate v1
Newcastle [3365 is identical] 3559 m/o 5372 Volvo B10B CC "238" 96-160 10/96 B51D Corporate v1 Newcastle No 1551, 3551 or 4551; 2551 is at Randwick.
