Noticed an Explorer at Central today for the 16:00 service, seemed to have different tailiights to the normal BCI set up. Possibly TV-6318 or similar.

Thanks, appears to be one of the brand new 2011 deliveries for Murrays, and I did a little checking and there could be as many as 18 or more in the latest batch reg. in Sydney. Now all we need is some fleet numbers & rego.'s for positive sightings.
need red GA:521, 831.

This will be a good week for checking them out, as many services will be running multiple divisions.

What a smart place to put the wheelchair lift. You get to keep the bin space and use useless space over the drive wheel.

Didn't think that anyone other than Murrays had these ugly beasts, but his are older than 2010?.
