315 is still an AOA for Hobart Hurricaines? Or is it a new one?

As above. Was "nude" for about a week.
Spent one night at my yard but wouldn't start that morning so I couldn't shift it for a snap.

Sure it's not just FULL SIDE. There is one getting about like that :?: If passing it, it would appear AOA.

Sorry can't help you there. It is likely it's a full side ad because there's been heaps getting about lately. :idea: Scott must have a lot of work going on

#303 is missing stickers as you go up the stairs inside the bus on the outside near the jagged window line, white panels leaving rest of the bus in AOA. Doesn't look nice at all. :(

Below is the shot of #302 (side advert ONLY) for Robbo's Meats. AND the adverts have NOTHING to do with Scott. HE doesn't have the contract.Image

Today marks the last freight trains in and out of the Hobart railyards. The final southbound train went through this morning and the final northbound train will leave Hobart this afternoon :( . The 26 level crossings between Granton and Hobart will be de-commissioned :( Will miss the trains travelling through Claremont sounding the horn especially the TR class loco's.
