What happened to 139? Wasn't at the depot when I visited and 109 was being used for the school runs 139 would normally do.
Just confirming 138 is now 5285 MO 52 Northern Rivers, again... And 5023 MO 32 Northern Rivers is now 138.
And SBM's are getting delivered to Ballina, Northern Rivers & Picton

I'm pretty sure 6255MO was put for sale after the takeover if Daniel can confirm

It was sold to The Kings School at North Parramatta. I've been meaning to add it as a disposal in the Buslines list.

Hello Everyone,

As Splendour in the grass is on, Ballina & Northern Rivers Buslines are running the buses for Splendour this year as well as last year,
I managed to get this photo of Ballina 139 parked in Ballina near the Football fields. 139 was in an accident a few months ago and now is back with a new front,
well the only difference is the logo is bigger and bits of the front use to be painted black but are now just all white.

SBV's are almost complete, heading to Volvo first and then will be delievered all have white desto's.
Also first SBV's to have 84 seating so I'm guessing C84F they have 3 seats on each side.

Needing a depot and a fleet number.

Also would anyone know 4820 MO tamworths VST fleet number is?
And 7579 MO SBV for tamworth it's probably 36 but if someone knows please let us know.
