Re: CDC NSW Fleet Updates

Drove past the Edgeworth Graveyard on the weekend, noted off the top of my head there's two of those older Mercedes with the so called "Volgren NZ" bodywork (3575 and 3576 MO), also whatever was remaining left of the Volvo B6LE's from Thornton. I also saw a Scania K230UB (noted as a K230U...

A bit more investigation showed that service as being operated by 6682 MO of Blue Mountains Transit. So the ap ch...

Re: Bus Observations 2023

Been noticing that the 9:00 AM 145 from Newcastle Airport to Stockland Greenhills has been operating as a Volvo B7R Endura for the last couple of days?

Re: Bus Observations 2023

Over the last couple of days I have noticed at least 2 of Rovers (Buslines) Buses with logos completely stripped and are complete white. Possibly not with Rover anymore as there wasn’t any accreditations. The two in question are Fleet Number 24 and 28….. Both spotted around Ourimbah/Lisarow Areas
