What is (706), I don't have it listed, though I still have a few MB Sprinters with old fleet numbers? Also, are (277) & (285) correct, as I still haven't had confirmed sightings yet?
need red GA:521, 831.

277 does not yet appear in the Murrays fleet list, but from RMS records TV-6322 (also missing in that sequence) is a BCI with VIN ending in 6115 (which also fits in).

706 was A Merc Sprinter
811 & 825 is the last 34 seater Sydney depot have.
I Drove 277 Few Time On The Canberra Express Services & Charters, Will Try To Remember To Get The Picture Of 277 and post it here. also check 285 but most likely is a Canberra fleet. the last Sydney base number is 281.

Also 265 Is Arrive back in Sydney Depot Late last night For Wednesday game then Back To QLD on Thursday or Friday

This coach either has a very good kneeling system, or a bad air bag problem.

The first batch of Higers were only loan vehicles from Higer until the Murrays order was built - thus these vehicles are being returned and offered for sale.

Murrays also have an order with BCI for 20 x 2 axle Cruisers to be filled.
