Loline: A live action movie of a trip by Dennis Loline III

The Aldershot and District Traction Company was the largest buyer of the Dennis Loline, built only a few miles from Aldershot in the Dennis Bros factory, Guildford UK

The first Lolines were  basically the Bristol Lodekka built under licence by Dennis, and incorporating some useful design changes.

Loline III, the subject of this film, had many purely Dennis features including a newly designed 5 speed constant mesh gearbox. Number 503 has a Gardner 6LW motor and Weymann body.

The film is of a re-enactment of a run on the picturesque and once very busy route, no. 23 from Guildford Bus Station to Ewhurst via Shalford, Bramley and Wonersh through Surrey villages and countryside

The footage is amateur, shot mainly from the front entrance platform giving all the sights and sounds of the journey. The driver for most of the trip is a former Tracco driver of the 1960s, on a visit from Australia!

The Back of Beyond movie

The 1954 classic documentary by John Heyer about the Maree to Birdsville mail run.

It won Best Documentary award at Cannes Film Festival that year, something never achieved by an Australian production

Tom Kruse was legendary: he later received an OAM and died only recently in his late 90s.

When Coopers Creek was in flood, the Ford blitz kept as spare at the other side was used to complete the run, after transferring the entire load by punt.

  The Leyland Badger, heroically overloaded, crosses sandhills, vast flat plains, dry watercourses and sandy desert.

Still just as moving today as it was to audiences 60 years ago.
