Re: Unknown Operators / Unidentified Buses

They're ex Australian Defence Force coaches, which have all been replaced by a another batch of new Scania K410IB/ Express coaches. At least 2 have already gone to auction & there is at least 10 more possibly due to also go to auction in the future.

Re: CDC Group News 2020

Not sure how common this is but I think I just saw a Wyndham based Volgren CR221L operating the 625 to Elsternwick service. Has this bus been transferred to Oakleigh or is it still Wyndham based? I say this because the bus number and depot sticker was on the top right hand corner of the bus, which ...

This comes with the arrival of 88 which is already being fitted and is just yet to enter passenger service. As far as Buslink goes, 21...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2019

Btw 2812 is not in a wrap. I mistook it for 2848. And yes, there are only 21 L94UB's left. Check Manheim for better accuracy than BTBuses. Also, 2848 is now in service. And are all B8's up to 2854. How come BTB does not have more than 2851 when 2860 is being built at Volgren Queensland? And it stil...

Re: Rail & Private Operator Observations 2019

T1045 can be rostered on non-CG runs (I think the main reason for it being only partially covered). And in regards to 1040, as all of 21 of the new Optimus buses have been delivered to Toowong (as 2819 has now been transferred to Virgina), they have started to remove the skin of some of the diesel ...

Marshalls from Moruya has a 2019 Mercedes-Benz Coach Design bus, reg TV 6261. Not sure what Mercedes Chassis it is but going by their recent orders I suspect it's an O500RF-2 but I could be wrong on that part. NSW Rego checker was just saying it was a 2019 Coach Design bus with no help to what Chas...
