Re: What makes you happy today?

Really lives up to my expectations, the K270IB chassis really sounds like a beefed up K230(IB/UB) when it gets up to speed. The interior of the HVB SB400's is different to the likes of Transdevs K94IB's on the same body (obviously). The stop buttons are the usual plastic buttons with yellow shell bu...

Re: New Intercity Fleet Purchases/Observation

D2 was at Newcastle Interchange today, I of course had no idea that this was even planning to do the day trip down there since I don't really have any information what so ever but one of my other friends managed to get some photos while down there.

Re: Unknown Operators / Unidentified Buses

Looks like Christian College down in Victoria withdrew their Mercedes-Benz OH1418 that was last reg ZDH302 of which expired back in 2017, it's since ended up with an unknown owner that has listed it on Gumtree for sale after they cancelled their plans to convert said bus to a motorhome.

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

Transport INFO failing to advise commuters rail replacement was extended from Maitland to Newcastle Interchange. How strange is it that 3rd party applications with no ties to TNSW are better at informing commuters than the state government departments in charge of the matters are. If it wasn't for o...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

So there is an upcoming Lego exhibit coming to town for the school holidays (found out via the local papers) and I thought it would be something myself and a couple of friends can go to. Sadly you need to purchase tickets to get entry, ugh fine... so I look at who to get the tickets from if I can go...

There was actually one of those books alongside the VHS for sale on Ebay for $25 a while back. Haven't had a VHS player in years and unfortunately I've got enough items as it is so this probably would've unfortunately been left to gather dust if I had purchased it but for preservation sake, hopefull...

Re: CDC: The Edgeworth Graveyard

As far as I know Edgeworth is a dumping ground and still may well be. This thread is a couple of months old now and I haven't really had the opportunity to take another visit back and check progress or if any of the buses have been moved on. Approaching the operator first is the ideal scenario howev...

Re: KST's ex EDSA Hino.

Speaking of ex EDSA Hinos, I've found possibly another one in Maitland at a local school, research leads me to believe this one is former 1250 from DECS? It's registered as BZ13TY and is sign written for "Big Yellow bus". Rego check also says it's a panel van.

Curious but seeing how the spammers are using signatures to advertise their spammy & somewhat questionable sites, is it possibly for the Administrators to disable signatures until you've been registered here for a set time and let's say have made 5 or 10 posts?
