Re: Sourcing More Information B001-2002 TRANSITSHOP

Thanks guys for the further information, I'm not too fussed about the design being based on a bus STA never really operated, just more so happy for the fact I finally have something STA branded & complete in box even if the quality isn't up to par like other official models. Speaking of this one, I'...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

Only happened because one person was in a major hurry to leave the place and could only think about themselves, Karma had finally done it's job the other night that's for sure. I just feel more sorry for the bloke that was pulling into the carpark only expecting to get dinner and not have any troubl...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

Sorry Newcastle Flyer but I'm going to have to disagree on the ABC being privatised. I tend to keep my political views to myself as I don't feel here is the place to be sharing my beliefs & I know someone will probably get upset with me because I prefer X politics over Y politics but anyway to cut t...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

Work has given me the new roster for the week but they've put me down at a worksite I haven't been too before (that isn't the problem). The real problem is they've only given me just street name (for example just: XYZ Street) but not the full proper address like "123 Main Street Parramatta". There's...

Re: Bus Stash In West Gosford.

Poor 3668, I remember riding it for the first time a couple of years back on the free east end loop just before the Newcastle 500 was due to take place. First and last 11.220 I got to ride (I know I'm very late but at least I rode one) unlike the O405N's that Newcastle Transport had, never got to ri...

Nah it's the built in Li-on battery or whatever they call it. Only good for couple thousand recharges before it starts to lose capacity & no longer hold a proper charge.

The lucky one off B8R Endura, I've seen it but not been able to photograph it yet. I suspect when it comes time to kill off the remaining ABM bodied buses they'll get replaced with B8R Enduras likely also built in Dandy. I don't see CDC getting "VM" built buses for up here anytime soon. CDC tho has ...

Re: STA Observations 2021

I'm not a Sydney expert but I'm pretty sure 270 & 271 are Forest Coachlines routes & they do have about 6 MAN ND323F's on Gemilang Eco Double Decker bodies. That would possibly explain why your seeing them on 270 & 271.

So their not STA buses, they run from Forest Coachlines depot.
