Station Link (or should I say ex-Station Link) B7RLE m/o 6913 spotted at Blacktown Interchange finishing a 700 and starting a 702 at around lunchtime today - I presume it has been transferred to Foundry?

LB608, do you have any new updates or are you just re-posting updates you see made on the fleet lists?

I understand that the Broken Hill and Mildura operations acquired from Buslink come under CDC Victoria. Where do we put these in the fleetlists (NSW-CDC as it is currently or VIC-KEF as per organisational structure) is another question.

They have NSW Rego (obviously, for rego and accreditation purposes) but the operations come under CDC Victoria's management.

Spoke to a mechanic from Hillsbus Dural depot who advised that with selected Stationlink buses coming offline from that project.

Hillsbus Foundry Rd depot are redistributing their high mileage Optimus' with Dural and also Northmead for newer ex-Stationlink Optimus'.

He also advised that vehicles at Dural comparatively to Foundry Rd, perform less mileage which allows for CDC to evenly distribute and manage vehicle mileage.

Any idea when CDC Hunter Valley is due to get some ex stationlink buses? It has been in the plans for a while now for them to come down here and phase out some of the older vehicles. When they do I'd say there's a good chance of Singleton getting a few since they don't really have any modern low floor buses built after 2010. (Man 12.220's and Mercedes O405NH's they have for service use are from 1998 - 2000)

This should be how CDC can do the transfer thing if they transfer any ex stationlink buses upto the the Hunter withdraw the 5 Mercedes O405NHs and 4 MAN midis from Singleton transfer 9 Volvo B7RLE Volgren CR228Ls from Edgeworth to replace those withdrawn buses then transfer 9 ex Stationlink buses up to Edgeworth

Which Depots through? (@ m/o 6234's post) and are any other buses due to get withdrawn or moved to make way for the ex Stationlink Optimuses?

I saw an employee on Facebook perhaps hint that Hunter valley will get their share of stationlinks in due time (think another hinted in a months time) but none mentioned which depot and none mentioned any buses due for withdrawal or to be moved to other depots to make room if needed.

I hear Singleton drivers are getting frustrated by the older buses, mostly their Mercedes O405NH's, I think some mostly new buses would be right up their alley to be honest.
