As has been noted on Facebook, Bus 132 has been withdrawn, repainted and possibly sold to a local operator.

Any sightings welcomed.

132 was this afternoon sighted at the Kingston Railway Station in a yard used by several operators, the only one of those operators that would really benefit from a low floor midi bus is Capital Sightseeing  (otherwise known as Explorer), so one can only assume it's been purchased by them.

MO375 (formerly BUS132) has been deregistered and is no longer situated at the railway yard.

146 is at Woden minus Fleet number, rego and rear bumper. No sign of any replacement coming out of storage though.

Has anyone seen 144 lately? ... Is 144 perhaps in for (a fair bit of) maintenance? Or is it just hiding from me?
Bus 144 has been withdrawn.

Meanwhile former Bus132 is listed for sale on eBay. Still no buyers.

A Dart, with no visible fleet number and perhaps no plates, and front end hoisted on the ACTION tow truck, passed West to East along Cohen St, Belconnen about 1.45pm today.

Latest reports are that only 148 and 150 remain in service.

However, it is likely that some Darts may return to service to operate the City Loop service.

A sighting of former BUS 154 was made yesterday at Murrumbateman, heading away from Canberra. Still in ACTION livery.
