In January 2012 two members of the ACT Bus Forum headed to Premier Illawarra’s Unanderra Depot, where they inspected and subsequently purchased ex-ACTION Bus 675, the class leading Renault PR100.2 (Mk1).
Included in the purchase price was the chance to have a look through some of its sister units headed for the scrap yard, in order to salvage any bits and pieces that could be useful in the restoration process.
Following its purchase, 675 made the journey from Wollongong to Sydney,. Whilst the top speed of around 70km/h is fairly sluggish, the gearbox is smooth and the engine remarkably quiet.
