Much of the time when these vehicles are off the road, they are awaiting a specific part. It may not be an engine, but possibly a differential, gearbox, who knows.

And still no sign of Lonsdale based 2712 been out of service since October 2018 one must assume this has been retired and used for parts. Surley it doesn't take this long to repair it if there is any Lonsdale operators that can confirm this

From what I heard recently, 2712 has not been withdrawn, but is not currently in on the road.

You didn't specify that it was 889. It could have been any bus out of the ones quoted above.

Scania K230UB 1274 hasn't shown up for about a fortnight now in real time.

It wasn't that healthy when I caught it last, but also less vanilla than most Scanias. Is it off the road for repairs?

It seems to have either something wrong with it's differential, or possibly even fuel intake issues.

It's a Scania most likely the diff has gone on it like most other Scania's in the Adelaide fleet
