Thanks for the update. Apparently 4816 MO is sold, but remains in the fleet until it comes off contract.

Berrima (48) may be headed for Tasmania soon.

Do you mean the other 48 (visiting MAN) or the real Berrima 48 (Merc 0400)?

Berrima has one of them for a Government contract hence no desto. 7144MO is Berrima fleet number 57.

It is fitted with seatbelts on all seats, a first for Berrima.

NEWS OF THE NEW BUSTECH's TO BE DELIVERED

Ballina Buslines are getting:

1x VST, Mercedes Benz 0500LE
2x SBV/SBM, Volvo B7R

Apparently Ballina BL don't buy the SBV in Volvo B7R's anymore because MAN's are better for Ballina.

The VST, Mercedes Benz 0500LE is going to be 146
The SBV/SBM's are going to be 147 & 148.

Northern Rivers Buslines are getting:

1x SBV
Which will be 62

Northern Rivers BL are only getting 1 SBV because they have the most VST's in the buslines group. Northern Rivers are still buying Volvo B7R's and if they buy VST's they have to get them in Mercedes Benz 0500LE because Buslines Group have stopped buying Volvo VST's...
