A visit to Ritchies Swanson depot revelaed a new Fuso Fighter - JEU636.

Checking on CAR JAM shows 20 registrations between JEU621 and JEU640, all for Mitsubishi Fuso Canters and Fighters -with three Canters [623-625] and 17 Fighters [621-622/626-640].

These are probably being spread around New Zealand to replace 25 year old life expired Japanese import school buses [1989-1990 builds].

I would value any sightings of registration and matching fleet numbers, and the location.

Additionally, Albany Depot has 2 x LDV V80 Minibus14 2.5D/5MT/L low roof [fleet # 990/991, registration JAT537/536]. Car jam reveals another three in this sequence - 535/538/539. Fleet numbers and registrations along with location would be valued.

Additionally,there are 5 more LDV V80 Minibus deliveries from 2014 for which I do not have depots or fleet numbers.

and two x 2014 Mercedes Benz Sprinters

I have worked over the past year, including a South Island driving trip, to collate Ritchies details and have 913 entries out of a possible 1003 [based on the highest known fleet number which is an, as yet, unnoted Scania K400 like 1000-1003].
