Considering they're about 40km apart it's a darn big duck.

IIRC, the company was previously known as Hunter Valley Coaches, based at Maitland.

The process of changing company logos has been happening scince the name change a few months back, all stationary and depot signs ect were done first as priority then the buses, preference to yellow first then white now what ever comes in for a service

Diamond T,

what happens in the case when a bus with a livery like the O400 that Andy Lee caught comes in?
Leave it? Logo on front? Paint out the old signage, and add logo decals?

I dont know simes, im no longer at hunter valley buses. But i work next door at Mercedes and can see the work shop. I have noticed the blue ribbon being stripped off and the bus running around in plain blue some with hunter valley stickers on the rear only.

id imagine they will get full signage when they go for refurb and repaint (which will take a while as sydney normally gets priority over newcastle)
