Thanks for that - will update now. I removed 6001 after the massive accident damage it copped, pending repairs. Has it returned as yet?

Also a Toronto based Volvo PMC160 is now in TNSW, any advice as to which one?

AFAIK, a Toronto liveried MAN with a PMC 160 body has been spied in the Queanbeyan yard, so either 4372MO, or 4401MO has made the move to CDC Deanes. Cannot 100% confirm this though.

Are these changes likely to be permanent or just for school holidays?

I'm seeing more and more buses that I did my apprenticeship on now going for disposal or scrap, it's like the end of an era now after 27 years in the game. I remember all of these except the last two.

8037, noted as withdrawn 10/12, has appeared at Girrween being used for parts?

7615 on the hoists still missing parts and no plates - did this ever run in service with Charterplus?

7615 - alegedly engine died at Windsor and with its age it was decided to withdraw the unit. It was later sent to Girraween to have the engine from 8037 installed (plus some other bits and pieces) and get it back on the road. The Charterplus signage is just part of the re-instatement process.
