Spotted at Valley Heights depot today was a Transborder M-Benz Coach Design coach in the workshop. Not sure if this is a transfer to Blue Mountains Transit or just a short term visitor.
I continue posts under BMBC otherwise will become lost in the greater CDC updates. plus retains own unique area of operation.

Transborder 6627MO is now a resident at Valley Heights.

p.s. its a Scania. Rumours abound that another one is to follow.

The coach design bodied Scania K124 was the most reliable coach in the Qcity coach fleet and was very often used on the trainlink runs when the volvos broke down.

I appreciate this is in the wrong place, but gets lost in the CDC collection. I still see Blue Mountains as a distinct region - perhaps call it Blue Mountains operators (which would take in BM Transit and Golden West Holdings).
Anyway, currently residing at Katoomba depot and carrying BM Transit accreditation is 2443 MO Toyota Coaster with Hunter Valley Buses still on the roofline. In TNSW blue and white. First spotted about a week ago.
