Its alright for you busnuts that wet themselves over 'em by riding in one or looking at them :wink:

But us workshop staff have no intrest in them what so ever,

640 was the other one reported to be with the Hunter Valley Brewery.

BUT 605 is a Toyota Coaster and not an ex STA Mercedes hence I suspect it was NOT sold to Hunter Valley Brewery.

You had to make an error just to get me to post on this topic, didn't we work it out to be #608 that was sold.

Indeed #605 is a coaster.

As for the 0405 fleet numbers in this post, there are now 21 new scania's with the photo of #810.

As more of the new scania's come into the fleet the older buses will be cycled to the North Coast depots.

I guess that means you won in getting me to write something.

Thanks for the info guys. Does this mean I will have to head up north to visit at least Great Lakes, Wauchope and Lauriteon to get the O305s before they go?

B58s all the way - LOL - although I've never worked on one, I grew up catching them in Campbelltown....

I was wondering where 192 had gone - it's a rare bus in the Busways flet - having had its original Mk88 CC front replaced with a newer Series 238 front following a smash. It would blend in with the rest of the fleet now if it has been repainted into plain white.

MO 9632 or m/o 9632 - Other recent plates in the 96xx series have been m/o and not MO.

I have recorded it as MO for the moment.
