Re: Omsi Two Stuff

It's been a while since I've posted any update here. I shelved the Express for a little bit as it was giving me the absolute sh*ts but here's where I got to in the end. https://scontent.fmel5-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/91767742_10218306167660314_5127432043587698688_o.jpg?_nc_cat=109&_nc_sid=b9115d&_nc...

Re: Random buses in Vic.

Great photos.

It's good to see the ex-McHarry's CR221L is still getting around. I'd wondered what happened to those buses.

Thanks,

Re: Omsi Two Stuff

I've had a small change of heart in terms of the bus I wanted to recreate. It's a bit "blocky" at the moment but all my blender skills are self taught, so I'm learning as I go. https://live.staticflickr.com/4261/35812267846_f8ba154778_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/4257/35465007180_7d98efc131_c...

Blue Skies at Melbourne Airport [29/01/2020]

I've definitely moved across from being a bus gunzel to an avgeek and it'd been a long time since I'd spotted at Melbourne Airport - so I thought I'd take advantage of the gorgeous blue skied afternoon that Melbourne graced us with. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49459268777_2831322de5_c.jpg Qa...

Two Hours at Sydney Airport [23/11/2019]

Headed up to Sydney for a work trip and booked a late flight home on the Saturday, so I thought I'd do a little bit of plane spotting at the beach. The smoke and overcast conditions made for some interesting backdrops, but I did the best I could do. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49115183557_e2...

Hey all. Quite possibly a long shot but I'm trying to recreate the Volgren CR228L bodywork for OMSI and at the moment I'm pretty much purely going off of photos I've found and a schematic of the Optimus that I've found online as well. Someone wouldn't happen to have the designs for the CR228L bodywo...

The stop in Geelong also included a trip to Drysdale for a ride on the Drysdale to Queenscliff tour railway. Introduced in 1907, the A2 class steam locomotive served V...

Re: All new Route buses to be In PTV livery in Melbourne

As far as I'm aware, the reasoning behind it being in the PTV livery is that if the vehicle was funded/leased by the government to the operator so that they can operate routes under their contract, then it has to be in the PTV livery. If the vehicle was self funded by the company itself, then it can...

How much of an increase in loading and unloading times would a double-leaf door have over single-leaf?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that all buses that were funded under contract via PTV are to be in the PTV livery.

IIRC, the Nothern Transit Group (Kastoria, Broady/Nationwide and Seymour) is owned by a different Sita brother and is a different company entirely. So it won’t be affected by the Sita takeover.
