Featured Bus - September/October 2015
Bus 226 at Woden Interchange in 1974

Bus 226 was a Ford R192 with body by Athol Hedges.

It was purchased as a stock unit in February 1974, one of many buses bought "off the shelf" due to the 1974 vehicle shortage - a period where a shortage of spare parts, mechanics and new buses resulted in as many as one-third of the Canberra fleet off the road at any one time.

Bus 226 was the only Ford R192 to operate in the fleet; it featured a Ford 300 I6 engine and a five-speed synchromesh gearbox.

It was retired from service on 11 February 1976 once sufficient new buses had been delivered.

About Us

Our information is presented in a number of ways: summary tables, lists and individual vehicle pages - which include a photograph and additional information. Articles are linked together through categories so that you can find all vehicles that fit certain criteria.

How to search: Enter the vehicle you are searching for into the search box in the format of "BUS 350" (where 350 is the fleet number).
