Which could possibly be an ex Logan City Hino RG230 APG or RG197K AD.

Its more than likely ex Clarks 31, Hino RG 197K, 1992, PMC 160, B57F. (ex REG.27) (31 CBS) 8/92 which was recently withdrawn along with unit 22. 31 only disappeared in the last couple of weeks so its probabally it. If anyone down the Burleigh could get a photo of it would be good to see if its it.

The older Hinos mentioned earlier 19,20,21 were sold to Jim Hill and later moved on to various places. 19 went to Tasmania, 20 went to S.A. somewhere and 21 is a motorhome in N.S.W. sold through Dick White. The 4 A/D starliners RG 230's are all still in service at Loganlea.

A few years ago Koala Koaches picked up a Leyland Tiger/Denning which is no. 27 with Koala and a Volvo B59, ex Clarks no. 59, ex Surfside 829 from the Clarks operation. It is possible that more buses may have gone to Koala as Hino's 31,37 & 39 haven't yet been accounted for as to where they recently went to after withdrawal. 22, 38 & 40 are currently for sale.

Ooh - sounds like it could be 31. I guess we know what the next 2 LCBS deliveries will be numbered - 22 and 31.

If someone can give me details of where to find ex 31 in service with KK, I'd love to get some snaps myself.

Do you happen to have details of where 22, 38 and 40 are for sale?

I know this is going off topic (mod, feel free to move), but the Fleet Lists for LCBS must be wrong then.

So, 15-18 are all still in service, as are 23, 24, 25 and 27.

So despite being listed as still in service, 22 and 40 have been withdrawn?

What about 26, 29, 30, and 32? They're listed as in service but I've never seen them.

Wow, they're going really fast now. They've gotta be getting something new soon, surely.

Any chance of posting a photo of ex 26?

That's Koala Koaches fleet number...and 26 is a PMCA, which looks nothing like a Starliner!

So the photos above are of ex 25, which is numbered 26 in the KK fleet?

Makes sense, as it looks like 25.

Which means it was lucky I got photos of 25 at the Hyperdome just a couple of months ago, as it looks like they're all going about now.
