Kirklands lowbridge Leyland Atlantean
Buried in a corner of the Tempe Museum in Sydney was this lowbridge UK Leyland Atlantean donated to the Museum in 1990. If you know the UK origins of the bus please let us know as we are unable to find this information. We guess it may be from PMT, Maidstone & District or Trent.

Beachwheels Mercedes O305 MO8509
Languishing in the yard at Sid Fogg's in March 2016 was former Kirkland's 288 (MO2535) a 1986 PMC bodied Mercedes O305 acquired from Simes Bros Bus Service in Lismore, but prior to that with Gold Coast City Bus as 864PNS yet new to Smekels Buses in Southport. After Kirklands it served Transdev Shorelink as their 46 with its current MO8509 rego. From there it went to Beachwheels Coaches of Beacon Hill and was sold for conversion to a motor home in 2013 which appears to be a failed project.

Leyland Atlantean
TX10C Leyland Atlantean.
In the seventies Kirkland Bros of Lismore pioneered the use of second-hand Atlanteans sourced from the UK and at one stage had ten such units. This colourful livery was seen in and around the towns of the far North Coast region of NSW. Only 1000 models have been produced.
Kirklands Denning monocoach
TX16K The Denning Mono Coach
includes two new features for our Kirklands release.
The Denning was arguably the most popular touring coach in Australia throughout the eighties and beyond, being used extensively by private fleets for touring and express services throughout the country. Kirkland Bros have been running services in northern NSW since the 1930s and at their peak in the 1970s were reportedly taking over 5,000,000 people per year to their destinations. As one of the largest coach fleets in Australia it is fitting that Trux now recaptures their livery for inclusion in your Denning collection. This latest Denning includes a replica of the front bull bar, which would have been a rude awakening for many kangaroos on their overnight services. True to the original coach, this Trux model also includes the two external stacks. These protruded vertically to comply with new pollution requirements at the time. Like all Trux Denning releases this latest release will not last long, so order yours today.
