Also Birkenhead - 36 & 53, H&E 272, NZBus 4152

All companies are commencing their repainting program this year in preparation for upcoming tenders.
NZBus have also repainted a Scania ( "Bubble" Designline ) although it needs the graphics applied, not sure of fleet number this stage.

Thanks so much - I thought that I had seen Birkenhead 53 as it disappeared from view.

Great update. Thanks so much.
