Blue Mountains Hino FD166L NCBC 7010MO
Rolling into the Katoomba depot after a day of carrying tourists around the area is 7010MO. Unsurprisingly this is a Hino, albeit with a Volvo engine. The FD166L model was built in 1992 with an NCBC 32 seat body for LTD Coachlines in Southport, Queensland. The trolley saw later use on tours of Melbourne painted green and yellow to mimic the local trams.

After its day's work, 7010MO is refuelled ready for tomorrow, where it will once again compete with the City Sightseeing / Blue Mountains Explorer doubledeckers on the streets of Katoomba.

Sharing trolley tour work was this Porter bodied Mitsubishi FK417 new in 1992 to ACTION in Canberra as their 003.

Being prepared for service in November 2013 was one of a pair of 1992 Perkins powered IBC Mk2-81A trolleys. The motors had seen service with Brisbane City Council as 923/924 (923/924BAH) now TV3196 and 1810MO with Blue Mountains. The Mitsubishi above was disposed of, but its sister, TV2094 (ACTION 002) continued in service.
