No, this bus was never part of the Lithgow Buslines fleet. It was sold by Jones Bros to Sunshine Tours, Deer Park, VIC back in 2009.

Can't see Buslines ever losing a contract. Agree with Daniel, this one's been up for sale for a while now.

Bustech can do any types of bus to repair instead of driving down to Sydney.

I'm pretty sure the Volgren Volvo Demo is not Ballina Buslines 35 we don't have 2 digit numbers we use the hundreds and Oh and just red post above it's suppose to be in Bathurst fleet list not Ballina.


Ballina Buslines 147 is 5247 MO.

Tamworth Buslines 7579 MO is 36 as is shown in the Buslines Group newsletter.

Are these observations significant enough to be listed as fleet changes?
