With the opening of the Metro, I have today made the following Hillsbus observations, where HF accredited buses were performing HD route services.

m/o 6140 and m/o 6148 performing 626 route service.

m/o 6141, m/o 6150, m/o 6146 performing 620X route service.

By TfNSW I presume?

The requirement for T6 would be a lot less, and is some time away. I wonder if they would hold onto an empty yard for that long?

It is only seven months away. I’m sure they can manage.

An ex Station Link Volgren Optimus was running on the NightRide N60 last night. Was wondering why double rear doors and no advertising but then saw the fleet number and remembered. Has Seven Hills accreditation now

Hillsbus uses the Seven Hills accreditation for buses that are based at both the Foundry road and Hartley road depots as both depots are located in Seven Hills

Noted an old Mercedes-Benz 0405 MK5 PMC bus down at Metford Grevillea Dr, didn't get the rego but had route "470" at the back of it. Assume it's an Ex STA bus. Not in any of the old STA Colour schemes through.

180X was serviced by 7597 MO, a MAN 12.220 Custom Coaches CB30 this morning, at 8:55 AM at Maitland Station.

It's the first I've seen anything outside of the Mercedes O405NH CC "550" that usually is serviced by it.

There’s a Volgren Optimus from BE (Blue Mountains, Emu Plains) Depot, 3712, running on N70 at the moment which is highly unusual as far as I’m concerned. Different font / size in the destos. Usually it’s only from seven hills

Been like that for ages. First N70 inbound is done by Emu Plains, to save dead running

I guess it must be after CDC purchased Blue Mountains Bus Company.

The latest Nightride timetables were introduced a few years after Blue Mountains was taken over so yes that would have been the case.

seen 6769 MO at the back of the Thornton Depot this morning, doubt it's a transfer but it puzzles me to why it's there in the first place.

Edit: Seen from the News reports that the bus fire on the M4 in Sydney was TV 1012 which is an Ex Busways Mercedes-Benz O405 with CC Body. Ex m/o 9995 while at Busways before being dereg.

News story from NBN news about Port Stephens Coaches Hybrid buses.
https://www.nbnnews.com.au/2019/06/20/h ... rid-buses/

1FW2HG was seen in the video (previously with LaTrobe Valley buses in Victoria), is that with Port Stephens Coaches full time now or was that bus just up here as put of a media appearance?

Spotted Transit System's 2724 back in service today. Thought that VST was a total loss from all the structural damages after the accident.

It’s interesting how they have advertised some of the Hino and Cspel as two doors because they are all bolted and have the power cut to prevent them from opening, have they reactivated them and fixed them up or are they still bolted and have no power to open?
