Hi all. Interestingly, either TfNSW liveried Volvo B7RLE Bustech's m/o 1095 or m/o 1449 has been reregistered m/o 743, with m/o 743 being a previous bus which was withdrawn from Busabout two years ago. I was on it today but couldn't figure out which of the two TfNSW ones it was.

I just saw Busabout Wagga Wagga's 7539MO Volvo B10M Mk III CC 300 at the Smeaton Grange depot. As this bus has reached its age limit, I suppose it's in Sydney for either sale or parts.

According to their January newsletter, Busabout has suggested that two new buses are on the way. I'm thinking that these are most likely going to be Mercedes Benz O500LE Bustech VSTs going off recent deliveries to their Wagga Wagga operation. This would be a welcome change from the current plethora of MAN units traversing region 15.
