History: 462 spent almost all it working career in the Wellington City fleet, although in mid 2003 it was transferred out
to the Upper Hutt based Runciman Motors fleet, and used on school services in that area. During 2002, as with most of the other
remaining 400s it was painted into a plain white livery, relieved only by Stagecoach Wellington decals. At Runcimanís it remained
white, but with Runciman Motors lettering as shown in the photo above. As funds permit it will be returned to original condition.
