Desto Time 30 - Bosnjaks Penrith

From 7362 as noted on the roll, I thought it would be interesting to put up given Westbus are moving out.
Rugby Street must be a busy place. And I wonder if "CITY" was from back in the day when train strikes were frequent and local operators ran replacement services for commuters?
If anyone has a photo of 7362 with the roll in it, please share!

Fascinating to see, particularly with the now 'boring' electronic destos everywhere.

Really nice to see these old-styled destos. Can't believe there was a time when Penrith services had no runs to Glenmore Park or even Mount Druitt.... and the old 790 route (probably not that one), but I remember an old 790 going to Nepean Hospital and then onwards to St Marys

You should be able to see the name of Penrith standing alone (i.e. without a route number beside it), quite a few got made with the word "city" as well back in the days of Nightride (which I used to drive 8365 on). That roll could have also come out of one of the mark 3 vehicles that had theirs made up like that as well back in the day.

An interesting footnote to this thread as well, 7362 was the first chassis into the fleet that was fitted with a ZF automatic. I used to work on it.
