Re: The Metroliners (B10M mk3 and mk4)

You will still be able to get Photos of the Volvo B10M/Austral Mk.4s for a while yet.
They should be going when they reach around 21yrs old.
So by 2015,2016 they should be withdrawn from Service
Also that depends on the "New Bus Deliveries" to replace them at that time.

Re: bargain bendy!

This Bus should have had a "Life Extension" done in 2010.
It's probably just for sale because of its Age or no longer needed.
