If you’re asking what QLD & VIC can do, but what NSW can’t is that the rego check can allow you to check full VIN’s and not partial ones like NSW or even a VIN Search

Is anybody aware of a batch of Mercedes Benz lowfloor units with CB80 bodies awaiting delivery to Busways.

Of particular note is the fact that they are painted in a variation of the TFNSW livery.

These ones are burnt orange and white, and and are mildly different with the arrow effect.

The 'stripes' do not angle backwards, but rather continue in a forward direction over the roof.

Units in the 1247 to 1255 range sighted.

Apparently there's quite a few of them sitting in a workshop yard in Ashford St ??? In Milperra.

Port Macquarie is the most likely as mentioned earlier.
The Port Macquarie to Wauchope NSW Trainlink service would be operated from there.

This is a new livery for Busways, nothing to do with TrainLink.

Several others including 1258 & 1259 are at Custom Bus. The orange is an excellent idea considering the highway environment these buses operate in, no using the 'I didn't see the bus' argument with these ones.
Enjoy.
