Good selection Joshua_boyd. Get them while you can, considering they'll start replacing them from early next year

Over the next 3yrs ALL N113s will be replaced, making Metro a 100% low-floor fleet, however, the new ones won't be heading north for a while, because the refueling facilities don't accommodate Euro 6 buses.

Would Metro be likely to cascade older low floors, keeping the brand new ones in Hobart and thus avoiding the problem of Euro 6 refuelling facilities for some time yet.

Quite likely John. There's been no mention of changing refuelling facilities up north. When they start arriving though, things may change.
