In 2006 Newcastle took delivery of a batch of Volgren CR228L bodied Volvo B7RLE buses. They were the first new vehicles delivered to Newcastle in the new TNSW insipid blue livery. Volvo 2451 (2451ST) is seen in the Bus Station headed for Warners Bay in late October 2013.
Running out of service on the same day was sister vehicle 2392 (2392ST).
Also out of sevice was 2450 (2450ST) though not totally unproductive with its huge advert.
