Re: [Mar/Apr 2019] SA Transport observations

A van had a side-on collision with what looked like a Man HOCL-NL just now on Seaford Road at the Bunnings roundabout. Could not see fleet number or rego plate because the road was blocked.

Good quality bus timetable app?

Hi, I don't usually ride buses but I like spotting them every now and then and jot them down on a pad of paper. I'd like an app (preferably with fleet numbers) so I can schedule my bus spotting times. Does anybody know a good app for this on iOS?

Thanks,
Madbus

EMU and DEMU

Hi guys, I am wondering if any of you know what EMU or DEMU is. I have seen it used in train traffic signage along the tracks of the Seaford line down near mile end. Please let me know if you know what these 2 words mean.

Southlinks Volvo B8RLE

I have only seen Southlink's Volvo B8RLE (2451) once or twice come past, but my question is why only one of them??!! The same question goes with 2452 Mercedese-benz O500LE, and 2453 Bustech Cummins-ISL. Please let me know if you know anything about this.

Mungujerrie, do you think you could make these pictures in to a paper bus? I have sent you the pictures via email. By the way, i am interested in how you get the picture of the roof of the bus.

Exactly. I just couldn't fit the doors in and I didn't have the right doors anyway so I left them out. And as for the model ,it's a MAN NL 232.

What? So SL202s have steps too? Aren't all the SL202s either scrapped or used for rail substitute anyway?

Re: Why so many MANS!?

Low patronage route so doesn't generally need a full size bus. yes, on lightly used routes like 747/745 they bring in such long bendy buses with only about five people in them. So really, they only need buses with no more capacity then a Mitsubishi fuso rosa. In fact, they should run those little M...
