Seeing there is no Rail & Private Operator Observations topic for 2020, and people are still commenting, I'm guessing this one is still currently used.

MGBS has recently taken delivery of a new Volgren Optimus Scania. Unit 31/Ash B.

Park Ridge Transit bus was on fire at North Maclean a few days ago, unconfirmed but possibly #91, the bus was an NCBC-Gemilang Scania.

91 was the one that caught fire a few years ago too.

Edit: 91 was in service on friday. Fire was wednesday afternoon. Looks as though it might have been PRT040

Edit again: Seen a photo, it's a B7RLE. I'm gunna say PRT002

I wouldn't be surprised if its PRT002, it would always redline overrev, telematics wouldnt pick it up.
I noticed PRT091 was at the same location of the fire on Wednesday, so I'm thinking that was the replacement for the bus on fire.
I've got onboard audio of PRT002 from the front and back. Brought it up with one of the drivers, he said it's normal. Isn't normal for a bus, car, truck, tractor, bike, or whatever to redline.

Park Ridge Transit NCBC-Gemilang Observations
PRT090 seen on 2:30pm 545 in 25th May '20.
PRT092 seen on 5:37pm P546 out 26th May '20.
PRT041 seen on 1:33pm 541 in 28th May '20.
PRT042 seen on 1:31pm 545 in 28th May '20.

Hi, I just wanted to point out that have seen a MAN 15.220 or MAN 16.220 or 16.240 (I’m not actually sure I just saw the MAN logo and they are the chassis of these buses in Melbourne) Designline Bodied bus going up and down Wynnum Rd for a few days now. It’s in the Smartbus livery but with decals removed. I was just wondering if anyone knew who ran this bus. A photo may follow shortly, but here’s one I found online that is the same https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsN6CxPjBEk

Would be really interesting if we found out a bit more about this bus...

Spotted Surfside 261 and 262 heading eastbound on Southport Nerang Road this afternoon displaying Tweed Heads 700 on the desto.

As per usual new deliveries are already added to the Kinetic Group Queensland updates.

Honestly, I wasnt a huge fan of the logo when I heard of the LCBS site being uploaded, but it actually suits seeing it on the buses, would've been nice to see it on the back though. Rear just looks the same as 12, 17 and 18, nothing too special.
