Did the driver take a wrong turn at Gosford station??? :shock:



I think repairs


Extremely unlikely!!! No factories on the Great Ocean Road! :roll: More like a sales tour.
need red GA:516, 517, 520, 521, 654 to 655, 662, 665, 668, 672, 676, 831.

Wasn't one already seen on the road?? Please keep this thread for actual confirmed changes rather than guesses. So I can be sure when I am changing the fleet list.

A couple of things.
The new #95 demo unit was originally destined for red bus and has the red bus interior but powers that be did not want it.

Have found out to that #7, a raised deck Scania maybe leaving soon.

Looked like a new one heading North empty Friday passing mount white.
Not in blue livery. Would they still be purchasing in their old livery?

As it has been discussed many times previously, that only contract buses (read school and route buses) are subject to the new livery. The separate "coach" divisions of companies continue on as normal.

What was it a CB80 or 60? Might of had repairs done to it, because all new buses will be in the TNSW livery.

I saw the new Iveco #66 this arvo doing Route 26 to Wyong Hospital.

I think it's their first Iveco in TNSW colours. It looked fantastic.
