      Yes in Singapore. Just across the road in fact.

          Took a few pictures of an old Scania-Vabis belonging to our local bus company Kristiansund-Frei Billag AL, now overtaken by NettBuss.
          What seems so sad, is that several volunteers spent thousands of hours to restore it, only to find it in this state today.
          It was used between Kristiansund and Åndalsnes, and despite the main operation was cargo haul, it also took up to 6 passengers...., wow....




          There's also a certain view in the world of trucks...


          The company also did all their salvation jobs before, before using Falck and Straumen Bil AS, and for that purpose they had an old Scania-Vabis which they called 'Mao' among themselves. Don't ask me why...

            great stuff Svein,so sad to see them like this,specially when you think that they have restaured them already.

            do you have more images of ''mao''.

            can i steel those images for the modelbuilders forum?

              Really sad, when the buyer of a company has no sense for its history. They must move in a dry place quickly. Did they try to sell them or is it possible that they lend these two in a museum?

                    Sorry, Thijs..., for my late answer.
                    Of course you can copy the images, be my guest. I always say yes when people ask....

                    "Mao" is very 'parked in tight', but I'll see what I can do. In this case I would not sit and wait for any picture though.

                    For Jan-Olav, you and other nostalgic persons in here, I'll give you a link from the norwegian web-page Bergli Truckstop, which has a thread about Kristiansund-Frei Billag AL (KFB), which is the company colours these two trucks are painted in. I don't quite remember, but "Mao" might be more talked about and pictured in the link:

                    The link start at page 1 of this 9 page thread; http://www.berglitruckstop.no/viewtopic.php?t=10449

                    THIJS:
                    If someone once build a model of one of these two, I hope you send me a picture

                    EDIT:
                    There's a good picture of the "Mao" salvation truck on page 6 of the link. The NTS on the door refers to Nordmøre Trafikk Selskap AS, which was the company taking over KFB. For a short periode the hole thing was administrated by Team Trafikk and all is now under the NettBuss umbrella. Even "Mao", not moved for ages, has Nettbuss on its doors.

                        Re: Random Pictures of Cars, Buses, Trucks...

                        Great link there, Thijs....., and thanks for naming the photographers name

                        Went over to see if I could get more images today, but "Mao" is so parked in that I would have problems with my fish-eye lense.
                        Nope, the crane is still there. It looks much like on the picture from the link I gave you, but as I mentioned, NTS is changed to NettBuss on the doors.

                        During my walk today, I passed through the traffic terminal here in Kristiansund, rather quiet due to Easter.
                        Here's two new buses, the left one a bit newer than the right one, I would presume...


                        NettBuss loves Mercedes', but they also drive Scania. Volvos are used on long haul routes.

                                Oh look, a W124. My father drove some of them as business car in the late 80ies. So it was also one of the first cars i was allowed to drive. It was a 230E with that i had the experience to drive 200km/h in the highway for the first time. Which model was this?
