This month in Marmion...

Post by Bus Suggestions »

Here's a few shots I took over the past two weeks in an attempt to also kickstart the WA photos.

MAY 7:

2919 rushes ahead on an early morning 387.

2198 on a 384:
Image

MAY 15:

2547 after arriving at Warwick on a 446:
Image

...and on layover:
Image

MAY 19:

2071 on an afternoon 384. Somehow, I'm still amused when I see 384 on an OC's desto!
Image

Later that day, 2148 zooms across Morley Dr as it heads 000 into the city.
Image

...and a rear view, as it heads off into the distance:
Image

This morning (MAY 20):

2084 on layover at Warwick:
Image

2544 loads some schoolkids on a 445:
Image

And a poorly framed shot of recent mover 1354, also at Warwick:

All shots were taken with a Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9506.
Enjoy :)

I'm getting an 'accessed denied' symbol on the images, and notice it links to 'Googleusercontent' (I'd assume Google Drive). Might need to check your sharing settings :D

I take it from Google Photos as my phone automatically syncs my photos there. Interesting, when I go into Tor (where none of my cookies are used and I'm auto signed out from everything), the links show perfectly... I'll edit the links through my Flickr.

I see Joondalup and Marmion are now having global running like old times. When Path Transit had the monopoly of the Northern timetables we had Malaga OCs on the 870, of which 384 is something of a spiritual successor. Seeing 2071 on 384 reminded me of those times.

Now, we are more likely to spot 2596 (Claremont contract bus) on 82. In olden days the chances of spotting a Midland bus on 36 or 294 (both Kalamanda contract routes) was high as a kite. Also, CV used to handle some South Perth (30-34 under Kalamunda contract) runs. And yes, 527 and 930 still get buses from CV and Gosnells. The relationship between Canning and SR is so close that it is almost like they are one area. It is most evident at Thornlie, where if the train station hadn't been built, there might never have been a bus hub.

Karrinyup OC's did 354's and 870's, but not Malaga ones. Also Gosnells used to do some 34's.

Another interesting one was that during summer, 102's used to run so late on a Sunday, that they ended up linking them up with the 30 and 31 services, to allow time to catch up. This meant that 13xx Shenton Park and Nth Fremantle NH's would be whizzing around Salter Point, while some 13xx or 14xx OC would be plodding along on a 102.
If it's not a ZF, take it back!
