International KB7 semi-trailer coach driven by Merv farrell (right) we took the sides off the bonnet and made an air scoop for the radiator to cure the overheating problem as the trailer was heavy, blue diamond engine.

Ron, it would have been a fight to get up the front seats! Did you have a telephone from the prime-mover to the trailer coach? I was very fortunate to ride to school in Auckland NZ on something similar, owned by the Benesi bus company. All the other kids rode in the clapped-out heaps and we'd pull into the school yard sitting up like Jacky! We thought we were rear neat, aye,,,, Benesi operated tour coaches out of Auckland, I have no idea why they took on the contract for just one coach that ran from Henderson High School, up through the Henderson Valley where all the vineyards use to be, and out to the Waitakere Ranges. Perhaps it paid well? They had luxury seats with head covers and all! Us kids treated them with the greatest respect or else we'd loose them and have to ride the old 'rattlers.' Lots of romance up the back seat even back then!

Hi Ron ,, I`m curious about the driver . Merv Farrell. Could he have been my uncle ? He would have been about 30 in 1954. and from Perth.
