Brian Tegg said that while the replica bus is now com­pleted as a re­sult of gen­er­ous lo­cal fund­ing, the Pio­pio Col­lege Trust is about to em­bark on the fi­nal stage of the project. “This is the build­ing of a dis­play garage in the main street of Pio­pio to house the bus and out­line — in pic­tures, print, and video com­men­tary — its his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance and re­con­struc­tion his­tory. “The dis­counted sup­port of To­talspan, provider of over 400 ru­ral bus shel­ters for stu­dents through­out New Zealand, in con­junc­tion with Al­lied Con­crete and New Zealand Steel, has brought this project al­most to a close.

“An ex­tra $3K will en­able a higher qual­ity of pre­sen­ta­tion. Do­na­tions to the trust’s ac­count (03 0449 0107019 01) would be much ap­pre­ci­ated,” he said.
