Newly named ACTION diesel buses

The recent application of names to some of ACTION's Tuggeranong based diesel buses is not limited to the MANs.

For example, Scania steer tag 471 carries the name CLEMIRA.

MAN diesel 500 has recently gained the name, JASMINE.

At least they picked the right first letter for this bus (wink, wink to those who know my real name).

Above or behind the NXTBUS screen...
Most gas scanias, most of the named MANs and a couple of Scania artics (even though its the wrong names) have them there. If not there...its not anywhere on the bus (except possibly on the back at the bottom of the window for some)...Except in the case of 319 and 554...

I noticed in 468 the other day that it carries the name "Maddison Anne". Not sure if thats new though...

EDIT: The sticker with its name on it in 468 is gone...was there yesterday...but gone today...probably wasnt meant to be there and ACTION are using our forum again  ::)

Our forum? Half the members here are 'ACTION' as you put it.

Would you rather just have non industry employees here?

What I meant was is that the mechanics may have used our forum to remove such a sticker cause it wasn't meant to be there or something.

And no, I quite like having the combination!

Mechanics don't have time or care about shit like that.
More likely it was detailed and was removed or a driver did it.
