Spotted one of the MAN 12.190s in the city today with large ads on the side for "Jaressa Estate" winery.

Still had a fleet number on the side but couldn't make it out; stlll had TV plates but couldn't see them properly either.

Murrays now operating services between Toowoomba and Brisbane (Roma St and Airport), with 3 round trips per day, daily.

They have also added a midnight service from Canberra to Sydney, for early morning flight connections.

Murrays have been running a concentrated staff recruiting drive on Facebook recently, mentioning drivers for their Alexandria and "Western Sydney" depots.

This new depot is at Seven Hills somewhere, any noticed any activity? It seems a little premature for work from BC airport.

11-13 Welder Rd. Seven Hills. Google street view is showing a vacant car park, but probably a dated image capture.
