Thanks. Yes I saw that link. I now have a better understanding of what's happened.

So I'm assuming that STA will now continue its Fleet Numbering from No 2860........and those from STA to TS will just become 'blanks' in the BusAus Lists.....but were 'delivered new to STA'.

Basically it seems like 'wait and see' for my own work on the Complete Bus List for STA....

Thank for ALL the information. I have been a little 'behind the times'....other things in life get in the way!!!

For my own "Collection interest"...and the Ongoing Fleet Photos, I'm sticking to buses operated BY 'Sydney Buses'...or STA.
Clearly Transit Systems and Newcastle Buses are now separate 'companies' and not STA.

I'm assuming that STA will continue Fleet Numbering as from Volvo 2960, so I will follow that pattern.
