Incorrect!
408, 737, MAN 14.230s and Hino's will not be going in TFNSW.

Looking at Scanias m/o 236, 526 and 4249 dating back to 1990 - now 24 years old - I doubt that they would be repainted.

Fleet Lists,
The 3 x K93's will not be repainted as they will shortly clock up their 25th birthdays and accordingly will not be contract eligible vehicles.

We've now also reached the point where there are actually more Punchbowl buses in TNSW colours than their own livery.

Daniel,
Actually a bit sad with this but it was going to happen at some stage.By my calculations,there are 12 more vehicles to paint.

The only saving grace in the opposite direction is at PBC Goulburn where it has basically completed it's repaint programme to PBC colours with the vehicles not repainted as slated to go in the short term.

Regards Punchbowl Tiger Cub.

And I saw one in Hurstville today that looked as though it would be one of the next ones as it had quite a bit of grey on it - it might have been m/o 9287.

Fleet Lists,
Yes,it is one to go into TNSW - body repairs are carried out and left in primer prior to the paint job.

m/o 9023 well and truly documented in photos - all good things have to come to an end.

Outlasted it's twin ex.m/o 9024 by quite a few years - it's is still enjoying retirement parked in the Southern Highlands.

Yes, second those thanks. And good to see she still has her headights. Why do the disappear/get smashed first on old buses?
Its easy to forget the Gallery when there is a tendency to focus on the Forum.

Daniel,
No problem - have to spend some time to sit down with Bus Riders and double check what we have.

Received confirmation today that there is definitely a 4th K280UB in the pipeline but details such as delivery date and specs are still to be advised.

Kind Regards Punchbowl Tiger Cub.
