Sydney Buses (Route E87) Mercedes-Benz O305G


This 1:76 scale bus model depicts Mercedes Benz O305G no. 2561 on Route E87 to Newport. Thirty O305G buses were delivered to Sydney between 1981 and 1984. 2561 was built in 1983 and operated 27 years.

The O305G was the first articulated bus type to be delivered to the NSW Government. They provided an alternative to the high-capacity Leyland Atlantean double-decker buses being phased out at the time, the last running in 1986. The Mercedes buses continued to run until the final withdrawal in 2010. Volvo buses began to replace them in 2005 and over 230 articulated buses now pls the streets of Sydney.

2561 was originally delivered in a special brown gold Urban Transit Authority livery and later changed to the blue and white State Transit Authority scheme. This model depicts the bus in the latter livery. Government buses have operated between the City and Newport via the spectacular Northern Beaches since the 1930s. Route number 187 was first used in 1953. Limited stops trips were renumbered L87 and express trips E87 in 1997.
