Re: Rail Observations - December 2013

Re: Buses at Box Hill

:? So, the only livery change is slapping on a sticker with the operators name? Third owner for some of these. Is there a requirement on the operator to paint vehicles into PTV Livery at an early opportunity?

Re: Rail Observations - November 2013

The rumour mill, (note rumour), is rife at the moment that NSW TrainLink Regional is the subject of closed door privitisation negotiation with an overseas operator and a local access providor mentioned. I reiterate this is rumour ONLY! But, perhaps a new livery, as in the attached photo is on the way?

Transport for NSW is hoping that ALL buses are in TfNSW livery by 2015... that's what I heard. That would be an impossibility to do as they go into the new colours during mid-life refurb or after major acco repairs. As mid life refurb is around the 10 - 15 year mark buses delivered around 4-6 years...

Has the STA finally been caught up with? I observed yesterday that Newcastle Buses are being fitted with tell tales on the wheel nuts. Always wondered by what stroke of luck STA didn't have to have them fitted.
