Does anyone know if there is a planned timeframe for the retirement of all Scania buses?

Will QOCS be purchasing (or have they purchased) a Scania for their collection? Or does the CNG fueling of the bus make that not feasible?

648, 651 and 838 have been added to the Manheim site for auction on 06 September 2019.

From observations, there are only 13 Scanias left in service - 626, 627, 630, 633, 646, 650, 655, 656, 662, 664, 668, 676 and 677.

With that going on, does that mean that the late 1200s like 1299, etc. be transferred to GC? I know the newest MAN's from G are going to W as 1372 and 1373 has already done.

I would say so - 1300 is already there, noting that 1345, 1346 and 1347 are still at Toowong and will presumably go sometime.

I haven't seen G655 or G677 since early October so they look to have been withdrawn from service.

The remaining 11 buses must almost be on borrowed time with the number of transfers from Toowong that have now been received at Garden City.

Only Scania I've seen lately still in service is 626. Are there any others asides 626 that is still in service?
