Quite some time ago now, I visited Darwin. The following shots are a few choice shots from the many I took during my visit, unfortunately several didn't end up working out due to the prevailing weather conditions, operator error(!) or a combination of both ( )
I quickly found some favourites during the visit. The Volvo B10BLEs, whilst driven rather lazily gave a smooth and pleasant ride. I was, however, left wondering if they have kickdown or not. The lone B12BLE (120) sounds awesome, and also gives a pleasant ride.
There are four Scania L94UA articulated buses, which are something of a rare sight in service. Surprisingly all are equipped with AoAs These are numbered 115, 116, 121 and 122. 122 became a firm favourite; I doubt any other Scania can match the noise of the ZF gearbox, nor the awesomely bass-filled and burbly engine!
Alas, this type were the hardest to photograph in service, and while I did photograph 115, 116 and 122 several times, I still have some work to do with the images, so no images of Darwin's artics this time, I'm afraid.
Compression to meet board requirements did noticeably hurt the quality of a couple of the last two images. Oh well.
