1600 Series – Volvo B7RLE / Mercedes-Benz OC500LE CNG

Here you’ll find my collection of images of 1600-series buses. This series consists of Mercedes-Benz OC500LE CNGs and Volvo B7RLEs, and are listed in descending order (ie. newest buses first). You’ll also find basic info such as the date, location, and any other relevant information. Expect this page to update frequently as I fill in the gaps and replace lower-quality images with better ones I take while out and about!
