The Cap a tan wrote:Those buses are there for rail replacement. I think it's a rail crossing removal project on the Sunbury/Bendigo line.

Ventura were doing rail replacement between Sunshine and Sunbury between Wednesday and Friday last week, alongside Sita and Dysons.

I saw a high floor Scania L113CRB/Volgren running a rail replacement trip at Sunbury on Friday morning, been a while since I'd seen one of them out.

I may of found another past Ventura bus, on Gumtree, a 1979 Leyland Leopard bodied by Smithfield.

See https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/orange/campervans-motorhomes/1979-leyland/1112404762

From the disposal section of the Ventura fleetlist, it would seem it would be this one:

94 FRW094 Leyland Leopard PSU3E/2R Smithfield SB816 10/79 B39D
ex APG794
MO 3101 LBJ Tours Wollongong, ex m/o 8952 Westway Bus & Coach, ex m/o 8952 Crossley Bus Lines

I remember this bus being a regular in taking me to high school in year 7. Was replaced that same year. Was quite a good Leopard too.

Noticed Ventura has begun to refer to their Rosebud West depot as the Capel Sound depot on Twitter, reflecting the official renaming of the suburb in September 2016.

Kind Regards

Knox based 1243 is in an all over ad for Holmesglen Institute. Seen around Knox City in the past few days.

Saw this morning was Oakleigh based 1045, Volvo B7RLE on the 737, a quick consultation of the fleetlist revealed that 1045 has indeed been transferred to Knox in exhange for Scania 1056. This will probably mark the first time a B7RLE has operated on a full time basis from Knox, except for when 1068 was there for a short time for a trial of the security screens back in early 2015.
