Doesn't exist. Zero graveyard vehicles.

I see! There was one at one point though, i'm assuming they did not have a use for it anymore and they sold it?

It doesn't exist (perse) It's just a term drivers use when vehicles were stored temporarily before sale or scrap. Sometimes it was one lane of Metro's Springfield depot, sometimes there were a few buses stored at Bridgewater satellite yard, but NO grayeyard as such.

As TBN said.
Any "graveyard" photos you may have seen were most likely taken in the Bridgewater yard.
At the moment there's just the few Volvo artics gradually being withdrawn/ sold/ used for parts. These have tended to stay at Springfield.
Doubtless the graveyard will start up again in earnest next year as the new rigid buses start to be delivered.
