Hopkinsons Metrobus Volvo B58 Smithfield
Seen in Parramatta was this Smithfield bodied Volvo, a B58 ex ACTION, Canberra. Hopkinsons obtained several from this source as well as some of their Smithfield bodied AEC Swifts.
 
 
 
Hopkinsons Metrobus Volvo B10B P&D
The design of these Volvos, used by Hopkinsons and also seen in Parramatta is very striking. The body is by P&D Coachworks and the chassis is belieb=ved to be a B10B bought new.
 
 
 
Hopkinsons Metrobus Volvo B59 P&D
A near side view of a similar machine, also in Parramatta. Derek Cheng of Sydney informs us that these bodies were built on either B10B or rebodied B59 chassis and this one, MO8712, is on a B59 ex PTC Melbourne 862 (IUG862). It was subsequently sold to Hawkesford's International and then passed to Kingsford Smith Transport.

Casula Volvo B59 P&D MO7967
Seen at Liverpool Station in November 2013 is Casula 23 (MO7967), but originally PTC Melbourne 851 (IUG851) as an Ansair bodied Volvo B59. The bus was rebodied by P&D in 1994 and acquired by Hopkinsons who sold it on to Hawkesford's International from whence it went to Casula. Casula was subsequently merged with Kingsgrove Bus Service and was the bus renumbered 12 in the enlarged fleet.
