I've seen it the last few times in this yard when I've picked to catch the 754 between Blacktown and Mount Druitt it wasn't till the second time when I noticed the Transit First stripes on the right hand side that I've wanted to see if anyone knew anything about this bus being back in NSW

If it was made toward the end of 1980, it must be a high number in the mark II block from STA days. Ex 2488 or thereabouts.
EDIT:Didn't pay attention to the title. I was close.
