[WA] Ex Transperth Renaults in Kal

Postby actually » Sat Dec 23, 2006 10:02 pm

Howdy all....heres ex TP 1065 Renault PR100.2 in Kalgoorlie. About 6 months ago, 11 Renaults went to Transgoldfields in Kalgoorlie. I went thru the depot while I was there and took some pics. The staff at Transgoldfields were very helpful in showing me around and I thank them.

Heres ex UQB 78.

Thanks for doing the miles to get those pictures. They look good in the "Coca Cola" livery - except for the white "bib" at the front.

Never even thought about seeing the day when a TP renault was leased out to another PTA contractor. The colour livery looks good however. Ty for the pics

As I have said before TransGoldfields Board is the Parent body of TransPerth Adminstration ,they unlike other operators of Transperth are not contractors. This was told to me by the old Manager .

While I was there I was told of some changes taking place from the 1/1/07....I didnt quite understand exactly but the jist of it is the Transgoldfields board will come under direct control of the PTA or something like that and the employees of Transgoldfields will be entitled to free travel on the prossie..(and I would assume the Transwa coach too?).

I may have not understood exactly but Im pretty sure thats pretty close to the mark.

These Renaults plus the three O405NHs (ex-1231-1233) have been officially disposed of from the Transperth fleet - so, unlike Pearl Town Bus Service, Swan, PATH & SCT, they aren't leased to EGTB/TransGoldfields.

But I get your point: who would have thought it was time to see Renaults go? Well, the oldest will turn 21 next March!

You may be interested to know that the previous manager is now the manager of Transwa, so this may answer your question

Interesting to note that they have fleet nos matching the last 3 digits of the regos - and by coincidence they are now numbered the same as their (older) Perth sisters.

Glen,

Great photos there, I'm hoping to go there soon to get them. Do they still have the old fleet numbers on them either outsise or inside?

Hi Evan
u can see some of the old fleetnumbers on the rear ends but otherwise it was the VIN. Most of the TC plates already matched up with the info on the fleetlists website via perthbus.info
