It’s been doing the rounds but we haven’t done it yet.

Does anyone know the story behind these pictures of a burning ACTION bus?

Students dry-humping on the backseat?

i am disappointed by the mundane reason for the fire – why couldn’t it be another bus arson attack like that adelaide kiddies’ bus in civic a few weeks back? then rather than being known as the ‘bush capital’ we could be the ‘bus burnin’ capital’!

It says ‘midi bus’ on the side: you you think the alcohol from the driver’s midi was ignigted by his cigarette?

Personally, I would prefer to ride in a schooner bus.

clearly a pint bus is better

But a pint bus would be warm, whereas a schooner bus is nice and cold!

You’d get there quicker if it were a shot bus.

poptop – If you want some older photos, check out http://trevorl.mvps.org/ratec/index.html. I have to admit to always having been a bit of a closet train/bus-spotter…

(in my best Arnie impersonation) “It blew it’s top”. Or maybe “let off some steam Bennett”

Good heavens.
Tuppence to whoever can introduce Samuel Gordon-Stewart to those people.

Who knew there is a Canberra’s Number One Transport Enthusiast Website? Well there is! http://actbus.net/.

[Sadly their 1150 pictures of Action buses does not extend to the old galah coloured ones of my childhood.]

ACTbus tells us “Bus 148 met with an unfortunate fate earlier this week. While operating a northbound Route 66, a fire broke out in the engine compartment.

The vehicle is currently sitting next to what is left of 703 and 914 at Belconnen Depot, and we’ll let you know if we hear if ACTION choose to scrap it for parts or rebuild it.

Cause of the fire appears to be unknown and uninteresting to bus-spotters.

Looks like engine overheated.
