Came across this site, with the tab name showing "Welcome to Sunbus Busline".

And have also noticed some photos were taken in a Surfside depot but with Sunbus drivers, which is quite odd.

Telfords in Sydney acquired 5 Volvo B8R's with Custom Adventurer bodies late last year - TV5277; 5278; 5292; 5296; 6375.
They were on Fleetlists and I checked today and there's only one TV5278.
Anyone know what's happened there ?
An error or have the other 4 been moved to other parts of the Kinetic empire.
They were all in Telfords livery.
Think for yourself, while it's still legal !

Just answered my own question by re-checking disposals listing in detail.
The other 4 have been transferred to Kinetic Resources in Queensland.

3401 has certainly seen better days, and hopefully its days get better.

930 - at Coomera not Tweed Heads
931, 932 - at Tweed Heads
933, 934 - at Coomera not Tweed Heads
247, 248, 249, 250, 251 - at Tweed Heads not Ernest
393 - at Tweed Heads not Ernest (transferred)
388 - at Ernest not Tweed Heads (transferred)
305, 306 - back at Ernest, 307 and 308 are still Tweed Heads buses.

441 is now at Ernest...


All MDis 459-465 are now in new full green Translink livery.


676 at Coomera for some reason... (not sure if this is a permanent transfer or temporary.)
