So according to the latest changes to the fleet list, TV 9266 (the Optimus decker that was with Charterplus/CDC Travel) is apparently now with QCity/TbX.
Just forever waiting for a Volgren Optimus, let alone a Volgren Optimus Volvo B9TL, to cruise by Edensor Park...
Formerly of Bankstown City until that council amalgamation...

8017 MO transferred from Qcity Transit to CDC HVB Edgeworth. Still retains it's Q-City livery and stickers.

Accreditation has been updated to say Edgeworth now making it a full time member at that Depot.

Highly unlikely it was 3583 as it’s now at Halloran depo and has been for some time

This week I was excited to operate the Volgren Optimus on one of its first runs in revenue operation (SMBSC14). This body is available in rigid (10.8/11.9/12.5/14.5m), articulated (18m) and double-deck (12m) versions and has been sold around Australia and exported to Nara, Niigata and Tokyo, Japan.

It was definitely 3583 as I saw the fleet-number quite clearly, whether it was just up there for some sort of mechanical job remains to be seen, I haven't seen it since and there is no way I was mistaking this bus.

Coastal liner (Well Halloran Hunter Valley Buses) do actually tend to get sent up to the Thornton Depot for mechanical jobs. I've seen quite the number of CL branded coaches at Thornton since CDC purchased the company.

Back on topic. one to add to the list of Transfers, m/o 7348 has been transferred to Thornton

Wishing Howards would paint ex 9205 into their livery and get her back on the road.... drool....

4697 MO is back from the dead, that's right one of the rare Csepel 844.31 CB60's is back in service for possibly another year. Just spotted it on the New England highway near Maitland finishing a school run up.

Same story with 4692 MO which is a Csepel 844.19, also appears to be back in service according to ServiceNSW.

Also same story with 7588 MO Csepel 844.19 appears to be back in service according to ServiceNSW.

Should possibly still be residing at the Thornton Depot.
