ABC's bus sales data mentions that Polley's also took delivery of a 37 seat Bonluck Senator 8 in January...

Also... Barton's have possibly taken delivery x2 Hino RN8J/P&D buses which aren't yet on the fleet lists. The first was in May 2018, the 2nd in December :-)

This information is based off what is currently on the fleet list, as well as regular observation of Gympie and Tin Can Bay operations as well as data from "Transportme". I also have names for Gayndah and Cooroy buses however I do not know which bus is which hence why I have not added it.

Thanks :-)
