Many Thanks for those Updates my friend. I’ve adjusted them where necessary. I have noticed since my last observation at Edgeworth back in November there’s more there. When I get time I’ll go by and see what’s there now.

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 K230UB by it's roof air vent) low entry bus from Thornton Depot there, although it's fleet numbers are missing and there's no CDC NSW logo on it, all that's left of it visually being a CDC bus is the new CDC NSW accreditation below the drivers window and well the canary yellow livery.

Crap photo but any idea which Scania this is and what is happening?

At a very rough guess…. I’d say it’s either about to receive a TfNSW Livery repaint or it’s in the process of getting new registration plates (for whatever reasons) and fleet numbers.

Mate my guess would be 1555 as 1556 and 1557 were both on runs this morning and 1558 carries a GIO advert down that side of the bus

ah not 1555, one of my favorites :(

Anyway, mystery of whereabouts of 7727 MO (One of the Custom "550's" can be put to rest, it's sitting stored at the back of Thornton CDC Depot, likely already deregistered and a parts source for remaining O405's in the fleet.
