Spotted at Katoomba depot today in the workshop just jutting out, the rear end of a Poncho demonstrator. The M-Benz Sprinter demonstrator bus hasn't been sighted for over a week so I suspect has moved on.

Good luck to them filling it. From the loadings I've seen now and then the old Sprinter would have been sufficient. But, might have something up their sleeve.
