As PTC himself has posted in http://www.busaustralia.com/forum/viewt ... =2&t=81477 it is the distributor which has gone into voluntary administration.

Yes,it was White Motor Corporation Australia that went in to receivership not Higer.Currently negotiations are under way or may even been concluded for AHG Australia to take over the distributor role in Australia.

In regards to the demonstrators out and about with various operators,my understanding is they may retain those demonstrators until such time that distributor issues are finally sorted out and signed off.Hope that clarifies the current position.

Rego check show CE50VT as
2015 WHITE HIGER BUS COMPANY LIMITED BUS BUS
VIN/Chassis: ********1869
as reported at the bottom of the previous page - it does not appear to be ex Noack 2840 MO - the latter rego still appears to be current.

PBC Goulburn changes to the fleet list in the last couple of days
PBC Goulburn - Goulburn 2840 MO BCI PK6850A
LSFC030817C001714 BCI
- 19/12/2015 Bus added
PBC Goulburn - Goulburn 4934 MO Hino RK260
JHDRK1JSMXXX10068 Custom Coaches "SB40"
06-030A 19/12/2015 Undocumented changes
Both are ex Noack (MJ) which leaves them with only
2848 MO Toyota HiAce Commuter JT721UHB100032050 Toyota - 12/99 B12C
ex MO 6514; ex YNE 665.
2858 MO Hino AK176K JHDAK176KXXX41612 Nambucca 180 8/91 RB49F
ex HA Cashmere, Hillston MO 662 -/10 (via Dick White (dlr) - traded on a Daewoo 9/07); ex McCormacks Bus Lines Pty Ltd, Hillston MO 662 -/04.
4473 MO Mitsubishi Rosa JMFBE649J0BC00232 Mitsubishi - 12/02 C24C
ex GD & L Sinclair, Grenfell 4473 MO by 12/09; ex MO 7117 9/08.
Since then there has also been a report that Noack (DF & AM)'s only bus
2857 MO White Higer MidiBoss 9.2m LKLR1ESD09A519113 Higer ? 8/09 C39F
ex SB41F; ex BD57BY; First reg 30/9/09.
is also with PBC Goulburn.

So what is the latest with the Noacks? DF & AM no longer seems to have any buses while MJ is alos reduced. Possibly even all their buses gone to PBC?

Forgot to mention the report about 2857 MO also stated that
Noacks 2857 MO the Higer Road Boss sighted on rail replacement today with PBC Goulburn now reg CE50VT.
However rego checks show
2857MO2009 WHITE WHITE HIGER V9-38 ROAD BOSS BUS
VIN/Chassis: ********9113

and

CE50VT 2015 WHITE HIGER BUS COMPANY LIMITED BUS BUS
VIN/Chassis: ********1869

So CE50VT does not appear to a rereg of 2657MO and hence the latter may now not be with PBC Goulburn.

I don't know how CE50VT is continuing to be mistaken as another vehicle.This Higer has been with PBC for several months as a demonstrator - firstly at Goulburn then at Riverwood.It is a new demonstrator and not a registration of older vehicle.

The other vehicles reported are still on their last registrations.

In regards to additions to PBC Goulburn operations,yes there has been changes and I am currently waiting back on official notification before advising as such.

Should have also added that former Goulburn Hino RG197 PMC XL 2821MO is still waiting to continue reactivation and registration at Riverwood as a charter vehicle for Riverwood.It has been repainted in PBC fleet colours.

It now appears to be duplicated in the Punchbowl fleet list - both shown as To be delivered.
Also noted that m/o 4199 is duplicated in disposals.

Fleet Lists,
Obviously a couple of typos as there is only one ex.2821MO waiting activation and one ex.m/o 4199 MAN withdrawn and scrapped.

My only contribution in the last day or so was the confirmation that m/o 7241 was finally deregistered a few days ago ex.accident damage 11/15 after initial suspension of rego.
