buses at Waingawa freezing works, Masterton

Undated photo, but looks 1940s.  This large meat processing plant just south of Masterton was in operation 1911-1990.

Hard to tell exactly from photo but at guess amongst those buses would be a Stewart , a Rio and the one at the back with just the rear showing is likley a Ford V6 with NZMB. In 1999 I was comissioned to paint a series of the Blue Bus fleet -formally known as Royal Blue Bus Services and later as now Tranzit Group.I will try and find the images. The company did have a contract with Waingawa right up until it closed in the 1980's.
