This photoframe was displayed at the New Plymouth City Transport bus depot, on the cnr of Egmont & Rangi Sts in New Plymouth from 1982 until 1992 when Goldstar Bus Lines (who took over services on July 1st 1991) was liquidated.
Unfortunately many of the photos have faded and/or have been damaged by the sun, however most are still visable and provide a nostalgic recount of the former fleet.
During later years, a number of these buses were replaced: Numbers 1,2,3,6, 10,11 were replaced by MAN SL-202's from 1986 onwards, while numbers 7,8, & 9 were replaced by Mercedes 0305's during the 1984 to 1985
Photos provided by Stephen Watkins. If you have any additional photo's of the fleet or information (from any date), please feel free to email Stephen.
