Brought to New Zealand in 1942, our grand lady was taken to Kinloch at the head of Lake Wakatipu by the steamer, TSS Earnslaw.  She was part of a fleet of six buses operated by Routeburn Valley Motors, one of the first tourist operators in the region.

Routeburn Valley Motors  ceased operation in 1971 and for 25 years, she sat in a farm paddock deteriorating into such a state that a three-metre bush grew through the top.  Lovingly restored our grand lady has returned to the Queenstown region  to show visitors the breathtaking views, magnificent mountains, and untamed beauty as visitors to the Routeburn Valley did over thirty years ago.
