ACTION Renault PR100 Ansair 921
Forward to March 2017 and 27 year old PR100.2 921 (BUS921) was still working on the 66 to Woden. Someone, possibly by the name of Cameron, had been having fun with the MACK badge on the front panel, which reads CAM!

ACTION Renault PR180.2 Ansair
Side by side in the depot shed are Renault PR180.2 models 700 (BUS700) and 983 (BUS983), both articulated version of the PR100. At the end of 2011 700 was the oldest bus in the active fleet, being new in December 1987, 983 dates from 1993. The bendibuses seat 69 compared to 43, typical of the rigid PR100 fleet.
 
ACTION Renault PR180 Ansair 704
Sister to 700 is 704 (BUS704), from the initial batch of artics: 700-726.
 
ACTION Renault PR180 Ansair 703
Also sat outside Belconnen's sheds was 703 (BUS703). The buses saw little action outside of rush hour and schools. Courtesy of Ryan of actbus.net, it interesting to note that 703 was the first Renault artic withdrawn from service, following a major mechanical failure. Some time later, fellow artic 724 (BUS724) suffered an engine fire and the front half of 724 was attached to the rear half of 703 by ACTION's mechanics. The joined bus retained number 724 (since the VIN number, body number, etc was in the front half). The front of 703 and the rear of 724 were then used for parts, and the front of 703 later used for training by ACT Emergency Services! Nothing wasted in Canberra for a change.
 
ACTION Renault PR100.3 Austral Denning
Maintaining the Parisian atmosphere in Canberra, the huge fleet of Renaults was joined by the PR100.3 model with a batch of 42 delivered over the 1993/94 summer. The batch started at 990 then having reached 999 then continued upwards from 100. Renault 999 (BUS999) is seen here in the early hours of that damp morning in August 2002. Its Austral Denning body retains the French front end - as did the Mark 2 models keep their French styling front and rear. The Mack badging has been dropped, just a small Renault diamond appears on the front.
