Otago Heritage Bus Society volunteer Jamie Hellyer
surveys the latest addition to the group's fleet, a 1976
Dunedin Corporation Transport bus, built in Dunedin by Emslie
Bros. After almost 10 years of collecting lichen in a paddock
near Ashburton, the Leyland Leopard has returned south,
bringing the society's fleet to three.
Society members drove the bus from Ashburton to Dunedin
earlier this week.
Society deputy chairman Peter Dowden said the bus would be
repainted, returning it to its original "peaches and custard"
It was hoped the bus would be ready for the society's
Christmas Day bus service, which took passengers between St
Clair and Normanby.
