2552 was originally delivered in a special brown and golf Urban Transit Authority livery and later changed to the blue and white State Transit Authority scheme. This model depicts the bus in the former livery. Route 177 commenced in 1953 between Sydney City and Dee Why. Express trips were renumbered E77 in 1997 and these services continue to operate to this day.
