3728 MO now spotted at Valley Heights depot down the back. This bus has not been spotted on school runs for many weeks, maybe next to be sold off?

Just a suggestion...

As Blue Mountains Bus Co. became Blue Mountains Transit with the CDC takeover in 2014, it might me a good idea to change the name of this topic.
No hurry, just thinking it might make things a bit more current. :)
Love the sound of Volvo B12BLEA, Mercedes O405NH, Scania K280UB
Excited for:
Sydney Metro NW, C&SW, West, WSydAirport

I think Blue Mountains Transit needs to be kept seperate from the CDC fleet post as it would just be lost among all the other updates for CDC in general.
And it does generate frequent updates from a few regulars.
The Blue Mountains region has quite a long and interesting history of bus operators, in fact 100 years shortly since the first motor 'bus service from Katoomba Station to Echo Point began operating.
Perhaps broaden the title to cover 'Blue Mountains Operators'. This heading could take in Blue Mountains Transit, Fantastic Aussie Tours, Near or Far, Bilpin Coaches, and any others that come and go over time.
'Botanica Touring' is a new one coach operator that started last week.
Think for yourself, while it's still legal !

3747 Mo is now dereg and is sitting stored at Valley Heights. This was one of my regular school buses and a common route bus for BMBC, sad day.
Does Cdc often sell their dereg buses? Or send them to scrap?

Apologies for raising this thread from the grave.

Spotted for sale: Not sure whether ex TV 991 or TV 1045, a previously operated Blue Mountains Bus Company (then CDC) coach still in blue and yellow livery.
