Mercedes-Benz in Newcastle today, rego starts with 68 or 66?

Postby Newcastle Flyer » Sun Mar 12, 2017 12:48 pm

What was that Mercedes-Benz in Newcastle today? It registration starts with either 68 or 66 & ends in H. Not entirely sure, what it in the destination, but it MAY have been Hamilton Dt in white on red.

Nope wasn't TV 6867 this time, & had 5 numbers on the rego.

Rego ending in H would be an "historic" vehicle. i.e preserved.

Perhaps there is something in the Fleet Lists "disposals" section?

There are quite a lot of Mercedes on historic plates in the disposal lists - I did not find any starting with 66 or 68 though.

Yes H for historic or heritage

Just realised I MIGHT have a photo - somewhere.

At the moment, I can't find it, unless I have a photo before the bus became a heritage vehicle.

Re original post. I wonder if it could be what was 3360. Meaning I wonder if 3360 still has STA destinations on the front? 3360 (I'll get the rego number later) was seen at leaving the eastern most rest area on the Hunter Expressway today.

Edit: http://fleetlists.busaustralia.com/indb ... qtype=3360
Nope, I don't think that's the bus I saw in the original post, as that one had a red strip if I remember, not a blue stripe.

Edit: 0853:27 Sun 17 Sep 2017: Nope, it wasn't this bus, as the bus in the original post had Newcastle destinations on it.
