Re: Surfside bus drivers to be warn about urinating.

This is nothing new for gold coast drivers. There are only 2 termini on the gc that have a toilet-thanks to Translink. For other locations, you rely on a shopping centre being open or public toilet unlocked. It has been the 'norm' for drivers to piss out the back door at the end of a run if no shitt...

Re: The Metroliners (B10M mk3 and mk4)

Probably because there is no demand for them. The used bus market has gone to sleep. The reserve has been slashed on the B10m's and B10L's and still keep getting passed in.

Re: QUESTION: Bustech Old Factory

They were on the cnr of Production ave and Manufacturer dr. They originally started with just the shed on the left but soon took over the one opposite. IIRC the only buses to be born from there were the 0405NH's, 0400's, early B7R's (802,401 etc)

Re: Anyone got any of the old/ previous Surfside Buslines Lo

You could just do a search for surfside buses. There's some on here pre-2000. You get the smiley sun, the falling surfboards etc etc.

Just what you want Bus_Control, more horrible Scania's at GC.
Nothing wrong with a Scania. Just means we have to carry spares for another breed of bus. That makes 5 for GC. :evil:
