Farewell O405NH CNGs

Postby Squiddy » Sat Nov 30, 2019 6:54 pm

Well, it's been a few weeks since the streets of Perth was graced by these glorious machines, I hope everyone's dealing with the withdrawals okay :P

I can't bring them back, but I can at least pretend they're still around by sharing some of the last photos I took of some units. Captions above each pic.



1784 on one of its final days in service, running a short 998 from Stirling (where the pic was taken) to Morley. Taken 20th February 2019

The last photo I got of a Transcom, 1793 entering Elizabeth Quay Station on a peak-hour 950 to QEII. Taken 25th October 2019
1793 2019.10.25 WilliamSt.jpg


1795 about two weeks before its premature demise, entering the CBD on a short 960 to Mt. Lawley ECU. Taken 9th April 2019

1805 on its final day in service (possibly last run, not sure if it went out in the afternoon), leaving Freo Station empty towards Fremantle Depot, on the morning of 18th February 2019

1812 on possibly its final route in service, leaving the CBD towards Fremantle Station on a 910F, on the morning of 20th February 2019.

1814 entering Murdoch Station on a 513 on the afternoon of 17th October 2019, possibly on its last day in service as two days later...

1814 sitting on the back fence of Rockingham Depot, alongside its buddy 1813, their careers both finished. Taken 19th October 2019

Transdev's final surviving gassie, 1815 leaving Fremantle Station on a 501T on its second-last route in service. It would later return to Fremantle on return 501, and then leave to the depot for the final time, its career finished. Taken 1st November 2019
1815 2019.11.01 ElderPl.JPG


And lastly, Transdev's second-last surviving gassie, 1819 leaving Fremantle Station on a 502T, on the morning of 25th October 2019, a couple of days before its withdrawal.

Enjoy!

Edit: I forgot to mention, feel free to add your own photos if you like!

Thankfully my life with them continues. Starting in Perth, now I'm in Melbourne for last 17 years and get to see them again and even travel on them regularly. Travelled on them with Swan, SCT and Path. Now I travel on them with T2B (Dineen Group), VTC (Victorian Touring Coaches), Sandhu, Mees, Dysons, Donric etc

Cheers,
Jase

To clarify, I am talking about the 48 CNG-powered NHs, fleet nos. 1772-1819, which are all now withdrawn and it's likely they'll all be sent to scrap. We still have a fair number (about 90) of diesel-powered NHs in service, which are the ones you see running for the private operators over East
