This selection of pictures has been taken by Jan Asle Sele. Jan Asle, a bus driver working for NSB Biltrafikk at Sandnes, does not restrict himself to just taking pictures of NSB buses, but for this selection I thought it would be appropriate with a full house of pictures from the local NSB fleet.

PX25496 is a 1987 Volvo B10R with bodywork by the Repstad Brothers. Repstad designs are perhaps my favourite Norwegian produced bus bodies. The company held a similar position in the Norwegian coach-building industry as Eastern Coach Works held in the British. Unfortunately, like ECW, the company went under. Click for a larger picture

Click for a larger picture SR37405, no. 233 in the NSB fleet is a Scania 113 with Arna bodywork. It is pictured here at the Scania service-centre at Forus, between Stavanger and Sandnes.

RH46567, no. 249 in the NSB fleet, is a 1997 Mercedes O 1829 with a Vest bus body. The NSB Biltrafikk Sandnes depot is just behind the bus, just 3 minutes walk from Sandnes town-centre. You can appreciate the proximity to the fjord as well when you realise that the crane towering over the buildings is floating on the water. Click for a larger picture

Click for a larger picture SR30696, no.266 in the NSB fleet, is a 1989 Mercedes-Benz OHL 1628 with Arna bodywork. Many drivers like this bus because of its 14.6 litre V8 engine which gives it a little extra 'umpf'.

SR82993 is a 1995 Volvo B10L with Arna bodywork. Click for a larger picture

Click for a larger picture SR61489 is another product of the Arna factory, this time mounted on a DAF SB220 chassis.

RF92169 is a MAN SL202 from 1990, pictured here parked at Jan Asle's parents' farm. Click for a larger picture

Click for a larger picture Completing this line-up of NSB buses is RF26339, which is a Mercedes-Benz O 305 with a distinctive Arna body dating from the early 1980's.
