That Veolia Minibus does a round of 455's most afternoons, with 455 on the run plate and a blank desto. Very unprofessional. Don't know how hard it would be to just put a small mobitec in that.

Great pictures all round at the Easter Show, Windy! Well done!

Great to see (24) out and about, the pair is still worked pretty hard. Depending on when the picture was taken, but it might have co-incided when Veolia Bankstown was operating the Cronulla - Sutherland rail replacement and hence, a critial shortage of buses.

Better still, trade it back for (64) which had a small (although pretty useless) Mobitec! Or maybe even (65).

Also, is that who I think it is driving (644)??? :lol: Hard to tell....

No, it was on the Thursday the 27th of March, where I was anticipating some of the Tigers and Leopards would turn up and do a couple of outbound runs after their afternoon school runs. The boss was kind enough to give me the afternoon off in lieu of the late nights I'd been working in recent weeks.

Driver of 644 looks unfamiliar to me...

As I was preparing these photos for the photo gallery on my tablet to upload while I am in Melbourne next week I noticed that m/o 981 has the description of m/o 552. 981 is ex West Bankstown and not ex Bankstown Strathfield.
Since fixed.
