1. Punchbowl Custom CB80, Volvo B7RLE (forgot number) on the Burwood-bound 450
2. Waratah on the Western line
3. TSA 1251 (Custom CB60 Evo II, Volvo B7RLE) on the Liverpool-bound 806
4. TSA 1233 (Volgren CR228L, Volvo B7RLE) on the Cabramatta-bound 807
Just forever waiting for a Volgren Optimus, let alone a Volgren Optimus Volvo B9TL, to cruise by Edensor Park...
Formerly of Bankstown City until that council amalgamation...

607X, 389, 440, 440 back, 348, 422, 413, 415, T1, T65.

There were long queues at Bondi Junction for the beach, both 333 and 380 ranks had crowd control measures in place, and more than a bus load each waiting.
On the returning 440 towards the city, we left customers behind on Parramatta Rd at two stops, opposite Missenden, and at Larkin.
The bit that caught me out was a long wait at Wolli Creek, for an hourly 422 service south of Tempe.

Might as well keep the thread ongoing, today's buses I rode were all from Hunter Valley Buses

This morning

3581 MO Mercedes-Benz 0405NH Custom Coaches "550" (which was transferred to Singleton Temporary after a bus fire)

Mid-Day

5148 MO Volvo B7RLE Voigren CR228L

3600 MO Volvo B6LE Custom Coaches (Not many of these particular buses left in existent with it's kind of CC body, interior resembles a 550 interior but smaller which makes me think these were prototypes when it came to coming up with the 550 but I could be wrong as there isn't much information and these buses don't have a model number so can't look further into it.)

none so far but I plan to use the bus tomorrow full day in spite of a very early start and having to leave home 5:30am to get two buses to work.

The Volvo B6/Custom Coaches buses were specifically ordered by Blue Ribbon Coaches for route service.When new they spent a lot of time allocated to Raymond Terrace-Newcastle route services.An economical,comfortable,reasonable riding bus with enough grunt to do the flat run with extended highway services from Raymond Terrace into Newcastle that matched the pax numbers that this route carried.
