Looks like the license plate in the main pic begins with "IY...", so perhaps it's this IY 7383-registered GNR Gardner bus?

Good find. Do we enter it as GNR or Great Northern Railway ? Gardner only made engines, not chassis.

That's not the bus in the photo that screw13article posted. The text that you quoted relates to a different photo that another user posted believing it to be a self-built GNR bus.

This is the bus in the photo:

Quote Great Northern Railway No.389 was designed and built by the Great Northern Railway in the railway works at Dundalk in 1951. 96 of these buses were built, of which 55 passed to CIE in January 1959. This one remained in service until 1964 when it was converted to a special ambulance to carry stretcher cases to the shrine at Knock. This work continued until 1975 when the Gardner ambulances were replaced by 2 converted 'E' class Leyland Leopard buses. It was subsequently restored and repainted in GNR colours.



The chassis is GNR Gardner 4/51/389 and powered by a Gardner 5LW. 33 seat body built in GNR workshops on steel frames supplied by Park Royal.

The convention for the weird world of buses has been Chassis builder; Coachwork builder; Further information.

For example: Guy Arab IV; Metropolitan Cammell Carriage and Wagon Co.; Gardner 6LW then bus or coach; seating plan etc.

http://www.old-bus-photos.co.uk/?tag=guy-arab-iv

Where there is less dichotomy, for instance Bedford OB/Duple; coach 29 seats, life gets easier.

In this case it seems GNR (NI) built the chassis and coachwork, Gardner the engine, so GNR/Gardner seems good to me, besides being the way these are referred to (generally) by the bus cognoscenti, from whom I quote.
