Not a bad looking bus, and adequate interior lighting too compared to our gloomy CC bodied L94UAs. Thanks for sharing those pics.

Very pleasant vehicles to ride around in.

Glad to see they're being put to good use in Adelaide!

Would love to see what these 2 buses would look like in AdMet livery. Funny that most of the ex-Darwin rigids got AdMet livery (and look quite stunning IMO) but a couple of them missed out as well as these 2 artics. To be fair, the artics did arrive from Darwin several months after the rigids and were very quick to enter service to deal with the demands of cruise ship shuttles and train subs.

You only have to look at 2801 to see what they would look like in AdMet livery

True, didn’t think of that, probably because I was trying to picture in red front AdMet like the ex-Darwin MAN and Volvo rigids and the ex-Brisbane Mercs.

Have a dodgy shot from the rear facing forward when it was still in Darwin, taken last January... But doesn't show the seat upholstery, so I guess it isn't that great. Kinda similar to the Perth pattern, except the main colour is a nice grey. The seats themselves are bench seats, again, similar to what you might find in Perth in the latest deliveries.
