EX PATS IN AUSTRALIA UPDATES

We have received news from Australia about some of our Plymouth city transport Atlanteans.

PDR2 230 JJY630G which had been stored with forest minatures railway transport group in New |South Wales has been sold to Bills Burgers of Brisbane, who had it completely rebulit by Van Demons as "Australia's first double decker burger bar!" Although changed forever, at least it will survive on the road for many more years. I believe forest minitures must still own 229 JJY629G.

PDR 234 JJY634G which was operating with Dee Decker Tours also has been through the same treatment at Van Demons now as Woolworths advertising (don't think that is our Woolies).

 

East Lanc 159 ODV 203W was another Van Demons conversion, now the Crunchy Waffles of Brisbane. It will be seen at outdoor events with 230, Group trip i hear you say!
