1317 is the only 1300s left at gowellington!

the pair of volvo b10ms(25,26) are being prepared for relocating to another depot..

rumours are that gowellington will receive another 40 ADLs!!!!!sounds insane but that would certainly give them a new flexibility in route planning/tendering.

15 gowellington MAN 600s are to be relocated to valleyflyer to allow the retirement of merc buzzy bombs...

Mana ADL's #178 & #179 have been transferred to Howick & Eastern Buses until their new ADL's start arriving late February / early March and will be assigned to School Bus duties.
Both H&E and Mana will receive a batch of 15 ADL's this year ( each ). H&E to have ZF gearboxes fitted and Mana Voith instead of Allison.

Mana Volvo #114 will also be making the journey north to H&E once it's motor has been refitted after a rebuild.

Oh thank god they've decided to stray away from the Allison, they might be a bit more decent with the ZF and Voith. Were the previous E200s delivered to H&E and Mana all with Allisons?

Mana #114 will not be ready until another two weeks so another ADL ( #176 ) made the journey north to H&E over the weekend and was used on a MOE School run from Clevedon to Howick College today.

Spotted a 2400 (possibly #2494) painted in full Airport Flyer livery :O

Anyone know the reason behind this? Is there a problem with the 2500 fleet?

Hi People, doe's anyone know what is happening with the trolley's in Wellington?
All I've heard in OZ, is the stop work meeting had a great vote in favour of keeping them.
Volvo B9R one word: Awesome!
