Do you know which ones are there?

Ten went to auction in May 2017 but were all passed in so I assume that a couple have been sold since.

$2500 + Fees (15%) if you want one.


Does anyone know what is happening with G641?

It went to auction in May, is still on the Manheim site for auction today but I saw it in service during the past week.

Bus Sales Online (Stan Biega) started advertising these units for sale this week, converted to diesel, at $99,000. A few images included in their ad. Check out their website.

696 and 710 are parked in back lanes at Eagle Farm so look to have been withdrawn.

787 was parked at the back of one of the front lanes at Eagle Farm with other unknown Scanias parked in front of it.

Can anyone provide a list of Scanias that are currently being stored at Eagle Farm?

Looks like BT are also storing Scanias at Toowong - Manheim site is offering 659, 671, 678 and 774 for auction on 23.02.2018 with the buses located at Toowong Depot.

642 643 644 679 are withdrawn from G, 681 should be going in the near future as well.

834-838 have been transferred to Garden City to cover the withdrawn buses.

Do you happen to know whether the V Scanias now parked at Eagle Farm (e.g 692, 766, 787, 790, 801) have also been withdrawn?

642 643 644 679 and 699 were resent back to cover a shortage of buses. Should be re-withdrawn again fairly soon.

774 is still in service at Virginia - only 700series Virginia Scania still about.

Guess it must be a really good bus to miss the axe...
