NEW buses for Transdev Capalaba!!!

Hey All, I was incredibly surprised to see these two buses on Friday. To my knowledge, there have been no new route service vehicles delivered since 2012, six years ago. I'm pretty sure they are Mercedes O500LE's. I caught 001 in the morning and they are smooth and relatively quiet. Here are a coupl...

SEQ's Mercedes O405NH's

I have always like the O405NH's- and in Queensland, the old Mercedes low floors are starting to disappear from our fleets slowly but surely :( I though it would be a good time to share some of the photos i have from the past year of the 3x O405NH's at Transdev, plus a few other SEQ Notables. First u...

New Buses in SEQ

Hi all, Just thought i'd share a couple of the latest buses to don the TransLink green. First up, Caboolture Bus Lines has bought three Mercedes O500LE (Volgren Optimus). I was very happy to see USB charging inside and modern, white destination signs. They are a good looking bus! CBL O500LE Optimus....

Re: A look at S1631 Volvo/volgren Optimus B8RLEA

S1631 Volvo/Volgren Optimus B8LEA in service on route 66 at Queensland University terminus. It gives a smooth ride and appears to have as much acceleration as the B12s. My apologies for the display but after several attempts it would not come right in the photo. I've never been able to photo the ne...

Less common sights in SEQ- Part 2

Round 2 of less common sights in SEQ: First up, a bus that is no longer with us, but still one of my favourites- Ex BT W/S 1599, Mercedes Benz C628 Citaro. Only one ever served with BT, and it usually did a specific set of routes, making a 174/175 fairly uncommon. Merc Trial bus.jpg Next up, a selec...

First up, is Surfside 392, one of their latest Bustech XDi's. Sporting white destination signs, they look quite nice now! S'Side XDi 392.jp...

Re: Franklin's of Perth Classics

are there any relations between Currumbin Valley Bus & Coach (Gold Coast, QLD) or is it just coincidence that the liveries are VERY similar?

Hi All, Glad that there are a few new buses floating around with various TransLink operators - including the Toowoomba takeover. Here is a selection of them. First up, 32 CBS is one of two brand new B7RLE Bustech VST's for Logan City Bus Service - featuring the latest VST body style and white destin...

Drawings of QLD Buses 10- Concepts

Hi All, Haven't done one of these in quite a while, but glad to do another one. This one is a look at buses you haven't (and probably won't) see in Brisbane anytime soon. First up is a new Mercedes Benz 0500LE (Volgren Optimus) in Wide Bay Transit livery. There are a few similarities to the HBL opti...
