A revisit to Eggins' depot in March 2016 found this pair typifying the Eggins fleet at the time. No Toyota Coasters and the like, all full size buses either Hino, represented by RK8J 14 (2515MO) new in 2008, or Metrotec/Iveco represented by Iveco Delta 38 (2514MO) new in 2004. Both buses have Custom SB40 bodies and were acquired with two other Hinos from Lansdowne Bus Service in 2012, otherwise all vehicles had been purchased new.

A unique vehicle in the fleet at the time of the visit was this P&D bodied Hino RN8J. The bus, 32 (5811MO), was acquired from dealer stock in 2010.
