AEC Decker doesn't want to put a fly in TOXANA's ointment, but if it is the "First and Last", then one would think (excluding the prototype 2717) that MKIVs 2728 and 3082 should be used on this tour.

It would be a very dull tour if that were the case.

Rail Bus wrote:Still quite a few Mk4's to be seen running out of Brookvale during the week, but yes, I have wondered how much longer they will be here. Any hints as to what depot will be the last to have them? My guess now is Ryde. A couple of months ago I saw Greg Travers at Leichhardt and had a quick word to him regarding the remaining life span of theses buses, and he suggested 12 to 18 months. Still, I full agree that now is a good time to start doing farewell tours. I know that they are getting thin at Port Botany, have gone from North Sydney, Willoughby, and Mona Vale depots. What about Burwood? Any left there? Waverly appears to have a few, along with Ryde and Leichhardt. For those interested in possibly buying one for preservation, this will be a good opportunity to see how good or bad certain buses are. I look forward to Sunday 27/11.
