Merc O500LE - 1353

I had the pleasure of driving 1353 recently, a much better bus all round than the K230UB Scania's. I didn't get much of a chance to take many pics though :roll:

Is that a 1st for Adelaide, with LED lights, aswell as school lights(?) up the front? Or is this bus ex-stock?

All L94UBs, K310s and K230s have LED destos as well.

Nice shots btw.

And to be nitpicky... L94UB's 1200 and 1319 don't have LED desto's... Nor do the Volgren bodied L94UB's.
