From my observations today

TV 3196 and 7010 MO are still at Katoomba for the trolley tours.

Wasn't able to spot the CC 215 B10M though, might have been hiding back behind other buses in the shed.

A CDC yellow vehicle with rego 3711 MO seems to be a permanent resident of Emu Plains depot. Plate previously on a PMC 160 Hino CM277K. I've only sighted rear of vehicle each time parked in yard - CCMC body.

I would assume these Volvo's being taken up the mountains are to replace the older Hino's?

Some more observations recently:

TV 3196 - is at Katoomba depot.
3724 MO MAN/CB30 - is back at Katoomba depot, after being at Valley heights for a few weeks.
7010 MO - is at Katoomba spotted back to it's usual runs.

Hi taptap23,

3766 MO is still at Katoomba, sits in the far left corner near the mini Trolleys (the 'rest home' corner) and difficult to spot when the yard has buses parked. Was still there this morning.

Didn't think it would be long before CDC started sending its redundant Mk IIIs up the Mountains...

Drove past Emu Plains depot on Sunday and counted 3 canary yellow buses visible from the road, couldn't stop to record rego's or see if any others tucked away.

I think one of those would be 7824 MO?

I also spotted a yellow CB30 heading towards the Katoomba depot yesterday afternoon.
