Bus Spotting at Broadbeach Interchange with Two G:Link Trams

Post by Sydney_Buses_CB60 »

Hi all,

While on Holiday to SouthEast Queensland, I was on the Gold Coast. Next stop: Ipswich, Logan & Brisbane. Anyway, the other day, I went to Broadbeach Interchange and did some Bus Spotting and also saw two G:Link Light Rails, both of which are Bombardier Trams, but I'm unsure what model. Unfortunately I could only be there for 15 Minutes because of parking limits, but I saw lots. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but just don't be Einstein about it please.

Enjoy,

Nice shots dude! It looks like nothing has changed since I was there (2 years ago now - wow, I'm feeling old), at all. Not even the route numbers.

Incidentally, this was the first place I took photos (bus-spotted, gunzelled, call it what you may) back when I was just an ickle Data. If you're interested the photos can be found here.

I say keep taking photos and watch yourself improve. I certainly did. The more regular photographers around the better, especially school age ones who have plenty of time for about 10 weeks a year (yes, I'm talking about myself a bit here).
First person on 822, 865 (2016 re-route).

Some nice shots there for sure, lots of Bustech's! Can't say I'm a fan of the bus myself, but still, nice shots :P

Like Data said, you'll improve overtime. As people always say - 'practice makes perfect'. Keep going, and you'll soon uncover a hidden talent ;)

Thanks for the encouragement! It's also the first place I went Bus Spotting & took photos of what I spotted as well... I'll be sure to check yours out as well. Don't worry as I'll certainly keep taking photos. I'm working towards getting a good camera to take great quality photos because I'm currently switching between my iPhone/iPad & a small, basic digital camera which gets a bit irritating sometimes, so I'm definitely going to continue. :) :oops:

Here's the rest of the photos,
Enjoy,
