Coast and Country needs to have its entire fleet list checked and corrected. Buses are flying everywhere. Just to name a few:
(All spotted in areas serviced by Wamuran depot)
#7 (376 LKF)- currently listed in Kingaroy
#14 (381 LYP)- currently listed in Toogoolawah
#44 (233 VCE)- currently listed in Toogoolawah
#48 (880 TST)- currently listed in Bundaberg
#50 (043 TLE)- currently listed in Bundaberg **THIS ONE HAS NOT BEEN SPOTTED RECENTLY THEREFORE MAY HAVE BEEN TRANSFERRED FROM WAMURAN**

At least two of the buses you have listed above are contracted to QLD Government school runs in their respect areas - so the likely scenario is they have been brought down for service or repair work.

Bus 7 was in Kingaroy I used to drive it, the Qld Transport Dept condensed that school run into the school run beside it, that school run only carried very few kids, i heard that bus went back to the head office, its no longer in Kingaroy.
I believe Coast and Country got into a lot of XXX claiming more mileage for their school runs, also claiming more kids on their busses, I no longer work for them they were short changing me on my pay, I do keep in touch with some of their drivers, they have to record their mileages on special sheets supplies by Qld transport and record the kids they carry morning and afternoon, I know when I was working there I was told by the manager to keep kids on my list who I know h moved away from the area or no longer catch the bus .

The last 3 on that list I have seen more than once in recent weeks on school runs. In fact #48 and #50 have been in Wamuran since last year at least
