Yeah, would be interesting to see! I wonder how well kept and clean the interior of the Darwin artic is, compared to our #2801...

Is the truck behind the two eXplorer deckers some sort of tourist vehicle?

Yep, an ex military vehicle which is used for giving tours. Here is a closer look at the vehicle for you!

Hi Howlerbus.
That ad hasn't scared the locals off if anything it makes a target.
Notice this bus driving around with a replacement side window on Monday.
I have been trying for weeks to get a picture of it but every time i see it, its missing some part of the ad due to the locals :lol:

Thanks for posting these pictures, Hawkeye.

Was recently able to get a ride on a Darwinbus CB80 (#80, in fact). It was a "religious experience," coming from the land of Volgren in Perth.
