New buses for Carbridge

Postby The Inspector » Sun Feb 01, 2009 6:51 pm

Sighted at the Mascot yard today was a new Volgren bodied bus for Carbridge.

Heard this evening that there are apparently 3 new buses and are all down at B T Ryan at the moment.

No details as yet but I'm sure either Olympian or myself can get these as they return.

Hi Olympian,
Great combination, isn't it? You cannot not be miss out the fantastic ride quality of a B7R fitted with Voith transmission.

Hello The Inspector,
It seems that the VIN number for Carbridge buses #42 and #43 are the same.

Does anybody know where these buses will be operated and by whom? I'd love to get a ride in one of these buses...

Regards,
Mr. Voith

Inspector, do you know or could you obtain the rego's for units (43) and (44) and the seating details for all three? Unless I have missed them somewhere... It would be greatly appreciated as I am currently updating the Carbridge list.

Pretty sure this is PBMBA0811 not 881 and has a total of 46, not counting the driver. Info is straight from the horses mouth, although I could be wrong!

My info came from the gen plates which I photographed. When I get a chance to catch up with it again I will double check.

Ok sweet, the build number could've easily been a typo when it was sent to me. Always good to double check anyway.
