I almost chocked seeing that B12BLE with it's mask, it's hideous and you can't even tell it's a mask. Newcastle Transport did a much better job with theirs on 2801. Now perhaps if the front panel on these B12BLE's wasn't already white I suppose it could've worked out?

Nice to still see high-floors going somewhat strong in Sydney, give another 2-3 years and I reckon we'll be starting to see the last bunch wrap up and Sydney will likely be 100% low entry at that point. Really like the MAN with it's rare Hicom body.

The B12BLE is trying to protect itself from the Thoreb-19 computer virus affecting it's various systems.
Norton and McAfee are working in earnest on a vaccine with up to 95% success rate on the bus fleet which should cope ok in peak periods.
