Greyhound Pioneer Austral Tourmaster 447
Seen at Cairns Coach Station in Queensland is Greyhound Pioneer's 447 with an unusual 'Super Express' maroon trim. It is one of the American style Australian built Austral Tourmaster coaches with a GM rear engine, then being retired from the fleet. Not surprisingly the vehicle is headed south, ostensibly to Brisbane, though coaches are switched at the Townsville interchange.

Greyhound Pioneer Denning 702DME
Also wearing maroon trim, this Denning built coach, with Detroit engine, 329 (702DME) is seen at the Airlie Beach coach stop in the Whitsundays. The vehicle had worked north from at least Brisbane, and though purporting to go to Cairns, it was switched at Townsville and ultimately ended up at Tennant Creek in central Australia.

Tennant Creek Transit Centre
Difficult to discern, but here is Denning 329 at Tennant Creek Transit Centre around 40 hours later waiting to head back to Cairns (if it gets that far) via Mount Isa and Townsville. Shouldering it are the connecting services North to Katherine and Darwin and South to Alice Springs and Adelaide - both new Scanias.

Greyhound Pioneer - Katherine
Taking its breakfast stop at the BP Roadhouse in Katherine is that North-bound Darwin coach. The fleet of Scanias was slowly replacing the Detroit powered vehicles and proved up to the heavy job demanded of them by Greyhound Pioneer. Many Australian operators had found that European coach chassis are quite capable of sustaining long distance cross-terrain services.

Greyhound Pioneer Scania 505
A better view of new Scania 505 at Townsville Transit Centre when it was shared with then rival McCafferty. It shows that it is not just the older coaches that have the maroon flash.
