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.

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.

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)

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.)

Here's a photo I took earlier on of 5759 during a 617 run, It's amazing that that Sunbus finally have some new additions. The shutter speed of my camera is out of wack so that's why the back desto is cut off.
