May I ask how you know it has been withdrawn? I recall seeing it in service not so long ago.

I am in the Brisbane Transport Past and Present Facebook group and one of the fellow members posted about it being retired and I do have a screenshot that I would add but I don't know how to.

You'll first need to save the screenshot, then on the forum click on 'postreply'. Then, at the bottom, click on 'Upload attachment'. Beware as the file size can only be up to 300kiB. You might need to download an image compressor to attach it.

Any news on when 1309 is going to G? It might be something to do with the AoA.

1277 now also has its signage removed. Not sure if it's ready for withdrawal though. Could just be having a panel upgrade

Observations today:

Volgren

Parked at Volgren today were T1298, T2856 and T2882 (rego XQ 50 JU).

Eagle Farm Depot

Six MAN buses parked in back lanes - hard to identify exactly which ones as all decals have been removed (in contrast to the Scanias where the fleet numbers were left on the buses).

I could identify T1200 (rego plates still attached) as well as T1238 and T1241 (could make out the outline of where the rear fleet number used to be).

Toowong Depot

T2802 and T2804 were parked near the garages.

T2876, T2877 and T2879 are respectively registered XQ 98 IH, XQ 85 IH and XQ 13 JU.

Looking at aerial photography Eagle Farm depot has been dumping ground for gas buses for a long time.

As it is right next door to Manheim, it is the perfect place for disposal of buses. The buses for auction used to be housed on the Manheim site but now remain at Eagle Farm Depot during the auction process.

The only Scania that I could see at Eagle Farm today was 664.

S1631 and T2852 are the Christmas buses for their respective depots if I'm not mistaken. Haven't seen the rest out and about yet.

1297 now at G
1277 still in service
1247 withdrawn

I believe 2878 and 2879 are currently being used for the 4KQ Christmas Lights Tours.

Don't think so. I think they are just withdrawing the MAN's early to match the delivery of the b8s

No. The last seven (626, 627, 630, 633, 646, 650 and 676) are all still in service. I was actually on 626 today.

Saw 1247 in service on Thursday and parked at Toowong Depot today still with full decals.

1208 at Towoong Depot today with all decals removed so looks to have been withdrawn.

E2883 (XQ 16 JU) parked in one of the Eagle Farm Depot garages today.

When was the age limit for how long buses can stay in service for BT changed from 21yrs to roughly 15yrs? Surely must be sometime after the Australs were withdrawn as they were the last ones to make it to 21yrs.

The age limit was not changed. Deliveries are ahead of the age curve.
