Comment from Facebook
"Locomotion is a Whiting 1/4 tonner individually designed for the Hurd Family from Brisbane. She is mildly different to “ Magic Bus “ whereas her cabin is 8” aft of the MB cabin, Loco mast height is 450 mm higher than MB. I have the GA drawings, lines plans, sail plan, transportation plans. The Hurd family won the Australian Championship in her in the late 70’s and I, Keith Newton, Rod Dalgleish and John Bright won the Australian JOG ( Junior offshore group ) championship in her in 1985. Locomotion is a development of Magic Bus. You may be getting Loco mixed up with “ Onehunga Bus “ ( the hungry bus as everyone calls her ) which was last seen at Rosslyn Bay Sailing Club near Yeppoon ( Central Qld )"

2023 February, from Facebook. "I ended up buying her. She was very rundown and I have spent the past 6 months working on her. She’s now at Bayview on Pittwater. Still a fair bit more work to do but she’s looking a hell of a lot better."
