The takeover was from 3/6/19 and included 4 former type A services on the Lismore-Nimbin corridor and 8 former type B school contracts with 13 buses.The charter fleet of 7 buses is retained for separate sale.

Transdev 5078 has the wrong logo. It has a Waratah logo instead of the hop logo at the back.

Wasn’t wrong at the time it was applied, as it was correct decal years ago. It just hasn’t been removed and replaced with the current logo.

Notice on their website that from 1 July 2019 Shellharbour City Tour Coaches will be known as 'Federation Tour Coaches'.
Apparently change of name only.

I just saw TSA 3965 with a LED desto display today. Is this a one off or are all the B10 Oranas getting this treatment?

When looking it up, it came with two but I'm not sure if the same listing.

The one located in Armindale is above, and the 2nd listing is below.

The second one is in Gosford and rear shots are different - the second one is just over half the price of the first one.

Interesting to see CDC Thornton still running a high floor bus on School Holidays, 185 at the moment is currently showing up as being ran by a Mercedes-Benz OH1830L Volgren SC222

Last I heard they tend to drop any use of high floors on service routes on School Holidays.

Spotted a 14.5m Ansair Orana on the Highway heading west through Katoomba on the weekend. Had what looked like a yellow numberplate from a distance away. Still in STA livery.
Couldn't convince my wife it was worth doing an about turn to get a photo. Can't imagine a charter, so assume a sale of withdrawn vehicle. Sorry for lack of detail, blame Mrs Centralian.

Telfords bus 6004 (TV 7271) Custom "CB80" is listed on sales on jeff nance website. This bus is still young, any reason why it's listed for sale.

Possibly "fleet rationalization"?

IIRC, it was purchased to promote w/c accessibility in a charter only bus.
