It should not but as it stands I suspect it will - I will have to give that some thought.

There has been some discussion over ex CDC Sydney buses no longer required due to the loss of Regions 1/3 being sent to the Hunter, however just going through the fleet lists there seems to have been a large number of new deliveries straight there in the last few years - there are definately more Scania's and B7's already there than I gave thought to!

Fomer Bonnyrigg 5477 has now been re-registered 023 - taking the plates off one of the Renaults. I believe it will be at Dural shortly. Nice to see one of the low numbered series rego plates being kept.

I have received an email something along the following lines - not strictly fleet changes but close enough;_
As of Monday 25/11 Charterplus operations and Office Staff have transferred to Bonnyrigg and Baxter's will soon move back to Girraween.
The Charterplus Optus Staff shifts have moved to Foundry Rd with Charterplus Drivers.
Woolworth shifts are still with Charterplus out of Bonnyrigg.

There are only 6 buses I can see left at Windsor Depot, 3 MkIII's, a Starliner, a sunflower yellow MkII and a pretty rough looking old Westbus liveried MkI.

Also, I saw an ex Penrith CC Bodied B7RLE coming out of the original Seven Hills depot, but no number sorry!

Afternoon Geoff,
Heard whispers this might be on.Replacement for w/o m/o 4199 MAN PMC.

Good fit for the PBC fleet and would take an orphan out of the CDC fleet.

Kind Regards Punchbowl Tiger Cub

Noticed last week, one of the MAN Cb30's sitting out the back of the Thornton workshop with a smashed windscreen and dents. Looks like it hit a pole or something.

Does anyone know what happened? Would have been painful for anyone that was driving!
Wishing Howards would paint ex 9205 into their livery and get her back on the road.... drool....

This was a runaway bus that hit a large tree in Singleton - no one was driving at the time of the impact.

A pool of vehicles has been established to loan to all depots to enable all CDC buses to be Opal card equipped faster. This pool came from the former Bonnyrigg, Girraween and St Marys vehicles not handed over. Permanent transfers will be posted as they are known.
