The buses that were in Camden depot are now gone, possibly moved to another of Busways' depots. Sadly I wasn't there to see the spectacle of heaps of the merc buses bumper to bumper coming out of the depot!!

The CB60s were ordered under a lease arrangement with Transport for NSW stipulating that they remain with the new contractor-in this case Busabout-if the current one is ousted. Henceforth any CB60s, VSTs or CB80s in Region 15 stay there.

Evening All,
These were purchased for fleet renewal,standardisation and spares etc.

Knowing Geoff's attention to detail and commitment to a quality product and presentation,these purchases should come up a treat after some TLC.Can't wait to see them in the flesh once they have had the KBS once over.

Penrith nor Mulgrave don't operate any 746s from my knowledge, so yup, it would most likely be with Glendenning.
