Saw G627 In the city this avo - when are the planning on retiring the last 7 Scanias?
They're definitely hanging on over there! :mrgreen:
G630 was around the Airport / DFO area last week on the 590 I think?? Does the 590 run up there? Not up to date on bus routes.

Just seen T2894 in Milton. What’s the highest one on the road now??
T2894 is the last of the current B8 rigids.

Newest bus is S1652, the second of the new B8 artics.

I’ve seen 1014 around Deagon a couple of times recently. Is this transferred to Hornibrook Buslines?
Still with South West Transit. Did you get the route it was on?
Nothing was displayed on rear desti so may have not been in service.

Re: Hornibrook Buslines

Rego is Victorian 1HD2YD.

Re: Hornibrook Buslines

Just seen 160 on the 685. Does this mean it’s now at North Lakes? With 163-166 at Clontarf I guess all of 159-161 may move to North Lakes maybe??

Re: Hornibrook Buslines

Seen at least 3 North Lakes buses and 2 Clontarf buses without front rego plates since Monday. Any reason or is there some plate thieves on the go??

Re: Hornibrook Buslines

A new update has seen a new Volgten bus numbered 165 with a new style rego plate. It’s safe to assume that 163 and 164 have also been used for something too.

Re: Brisbane Transport Observations 2018

I’ve noticed a lot of reg plates that have the L as a start letter are faded, even on cars and trucks. Strange that. The plates on the Sherwood volvo b7r buses didn’t seem faded last time I seen them and a couple of them have been replaced as well.

Wiki also says that the scrapping tender was awarded in 2015 but doesn’t say who to and where. Will have to keep an eye on things. Does anyone know the fate of QR EMU sets 62 and 64? According to Wikipedia they have been withdrawn. If so, when did this happen and what has become of them. Are they sc...
