Fleet Numbers & Licence Plates
501-540 ΝΒΡ 9581-9620.
Scania L113CLL ΕLBΟ
Year: 1995


NBP 500 Scania ELBO 00 Apr BM CG.jpg

Photo Balkanmodels: April 2000. Three unidentified Scania buses from the 40 strong class are resting in their terminal in the outskirts of Thessaloniki. These buses were introduced in 1995 and because OASTH retires buses when they become 15 years old, they should have all be withdrawn by now.

NEA-33xx Sykies 2.10.14 BM CG.JPG

Photo Balkanmodels: October 2014. A Scania from the second batch pelting up the ring road Thessaloniki. We are doing 70 but we are losing him. It is service 992 (non-passenger carrying). I thought these buses should have retired in 2012 according to the 15 year operating schedule.

NEA-3374 574 Sykies 2.10.14a BM CG.JPG

Photo Balkanmodels: October 2014. Another Scania at Sykies Thessaloniki doing the local service.

NEA-3374 574 Sykies 2.10.14b BM CG.JPG

Photo Balkanmodels: October 2014. The same Scania reveals Fleet Number 574 and Licence Plate NEA-3374.

PS.Recently I have been doing a lot of updating (in colour) of information concerning fleet numbers and number plates of the buses. This is due to a new friend, who provided all these facts. I really hope he joins us soon.
