Noticed Edgeworth's 4069MO parked in the graveyard. Rego check shows expiry Oct 22. Anyone know why it has been withdrawn early?
Wishing Howards would paint ex 9205 into their livery and get her back on the road.... drool....

CDC Hillsbus m/o 7605 currently listed as at Dural carries Seven Hills accreditation, unknown if this is Seven Hills Depot or Foundry Road Depot.

Noted there's a Forrest part liveried Coach running around St Marys quite often for a School or College. Is this now at St Marys?

Further information for CDC NSW Fleetlist

9842 - Thornton Depot (This one is still sitting out in the back of the Depot next to a dereged m/o 7848 and some MAN 12.220 CB30 of some sort)
9844 - Thornton Depot, can confirm this one is going to Thornton Depot as I saw it this morning on a test run and noted that it's accreditation said Thornton.

Yet to see;

9841
9843

However chances are these two will likely be going to the Thornton Depot

It is noted that in the CDC NSW fleet lists all depot names including all Forest country ones have been changed to CDC NSW depots.
The livery summary is a good example of this.

M/O 9340 (Scania K94UB Volgren CR228L) needs to be marked as withdrawn in the fleet-list. According to an OTSI Report from April of last year, this bus was destroyed by fire while operating a service run in the Lane Cove Tunnel, it's registration is no longer current either.

Looks like they’re finally starting with the Seatbelts in the Singleton Buses. Have spotted a Volvo B7R on AnyTrip the last two days. Wonder which one it may be

I see that graveyard is piling up again. Drove past during the week and could see 7589, 4691, 7787 and 7788 all still there but also did see 4697 down there too near their secondary shed getting something done. Maybe it might be next for the graveyard

Hey Benny, Just an update since the last posting, 4697 MO I am happy to report is still alive & well, it's parked back in the front of Thornton Depots yard alongside the operators highfloor counterparts. CDC NSW has also recently renewed the registration on a lot of its buses for the year and since my last posting in here, only the withdrawn buses I last spoke about are two days away from expiry as of this post and are super unlikely to be registered.

What's currently listed as active in the Thornton & Singleton CDC Fleet-lists are still active, 7600 MO, 7601 MO, 7602 MO etc.

What I'm really surprised about the most is the two B6LE's also surviving another round of rego roulette, they have another year of registration on them, has to have set a record in Australia for the longest time a B6LE has been in active service.

If I find anything that's been withdrawn, I'll post in here.

So I drove past Edgeworth Depot today. I swear that Graveyard has gotten bigger. I got a rough glimpse but I think the might Bluebird from Singleton has found itself there and possibly 3551? Need to get down there and check it out
