McKenzie's Mercedes OH1421 AP Starliner 125
McKenzie's, part of the Dineen group since 2006, operate a number of coaches, but also a few bus services. From their home town of Healesville their busiest service is the roughly half hourly 685 to Lilydale with onward connections to Melbourne by train. The service also runs nightly as Nightrider 965. Seen at Lilydale in April 2007 is this 1998 Mercedes OH1421 with Austral Pacific Starliner with coach seating for 53.
 
 
McKenzie's Mercedes O500LE Custom CB60 97
The fleet contains a few purpose built buses though in March 2013 this Mercedes O500LE was the only such bus in the fleet. The Custom CB60 bodied unit, 97 (1830AO) had been acquired from a Mercedes stock. A similar CB60 Evo II bodied MAN 18.280 arrived a year later in 2007. The bus is seen on a Sunday in Healesville, opposite the depot, awaiting departure on the 685.
 
 
McKenzie's Healesville garage
The depot is situated on the Maroondah Highway in the centre of Healesville, on the right hand side as you head east out of town. This March 2013 view shows most of the fleet at home on a Sunday morning.
 
 
McKenzie's International Weber 40
Stashed in the corner of the depot yard was 40 (SW400), a 1947 Weber bodied International chassis with a rear engine layout, most unusual in 1940s Australia. Weber was responsible for the rear engine and they used to make some of their own chassis also. The bus was commonly referred to as the "pusher" because of its rear engine. Unfortunately since the Dineen takeover it has been left in the open and neglected. Local preservationists are keen to see it rescued before it is beyond salvation, but it is due to go under cover when McKenzie's new depot is ready. Thanks to Gary Driver of Driver Bus Lines for information on the vehicle.
