Morning All,
Written confirmation this morning that the new stock Scania is NOT a purchase (was there for evaluation only) and that a permanent replacement for m/o 4199 is still being sourced.

Goulburn Fleet List should show both 2822MO and 2831MO as repainted to PBC colours - 2822MO in 2013 and 2831MO in 2014.

5038, 7028 and 5796 are the first buses used for charter work.
5038 can be used as a school bus if required.
5796 and 7028 can be used on route service and have been recently due to bus requirements, due to the fitting of OPAL ticketing infrastructure and the repainting of buses.
Once Opal is installed in the fleet 5796 will go back into hiding as a dedicated charter / rail bus

Would I be right to assume that previously withdrawn (2011) Hino RG197 PMC ex.m/o 164 has ventured up the Hume Highway to Riverwood for one last time to donate various bits and pieces to her Hino sisters before departing to the big bus depot in the Sky.

Punchbowl Tiger Cub, I've noticed in one of your post where PBC had ordered 2 volgren optimus, are these order is expected to expand or are these are for one of a replacement bus for the burnt bus?
