Current Status: Operational, but requires re-registration. Stored in Mananui.
History: Orignally used a sightseeing bus for day and night tours. Restored by the WCT museum before coming to the Omnibus
Society. Has had some use with the society, but with manual gear change and heavy clutch it has spent more time on display at the Wellington
Tramway Museum. Recently it has relocated to Mananui where it is undercover storage at "Hicktown Motors". It received new tyres and
mechanical work prior to getting a permit and being driven to Mananui in late 2014.
