Rego check shows it as a 2009 Merc with last 4 digits of VIN 8941, it could possibly be a ex Jones Bros bus but the last for digits of the VIN clash with Jones Bros 6282 MO.

It is the same unit. 6282 MO went in for accident repairs before Buslines took over Jones Bros and is the first to be transferred out of the former Jones operations. The RTA have doubled up the registrations for both vehicles sadly (both are current with the same expiry date).

Any photos yet?

Thanks for the update. It's always good news to hear another 16.240 will be making its way to Sydney! If you get wind of exactly where these beasts are heading, please do share!

15 (4836MO) and 16 (4816MO) are apparently heading to QLD for motorhome conversions.

Northern Rivers Buslines MAN 16.240 fleet no 2 (2992MO) and another PMC 16.240 (fleet no 3 I presume) are heading to unknown purchaser in Sydney.

The rego of the new Volvo needs to be confirmed. 6930 MO belongs to another B7R in Oberon. 6690 MO is confirmed but doesn't have a depot attached as yet.
Also, would you be able to confirm if 7016 MO Mercedes O500LE / VST is at Tamworth?
