1857(I think)- about 1886, correct me, have all been fitted the Volvo twinkle top lights, if nobody's noticed. Interestingly, they are all with Path.

All of the refurbished OC gas buses are fitted with LED clearance lights on the top with indicators, and it is not unique to Volvos, it is generic clearance lights fitted on all new Volgren buses.

All low floor Volgrens had them replaced with those led styles in 2011 I think.

I think they're all slowly having their fleet numbers slowly changed over to the new style, seen a few Beckenham Volvos like this

A path NH (I think it's 1318) has a pre-refurb style bonnet with some silver on it.

Hi all

Anyone know the fleet numbers of the Renault artic and Merc NH at back fence rear of Canning Vale depot?
(Renault 715 is still there, these 2 are parked next to it)
Rather curious why a "silver top" is on the back fence too :shock:

Was it damaged? And it may be 1313 if that has not been scrapped yet. On another note, 3001 is back at Malaga from Bayswater (Which it was at according to Perthbus).

I am pretty sure it isn't 1564. That crashed over 5 years ago, so there is no reason for Swan to have it for that long.

Incorrect. Please check your facts before posting. Personally, I have had enough of the speculation and provision of incorrect information on here.

It was 2010 (6MAY), but it was at the corner of Crystal Brook and Kelvin Roads, not Welshpool Rd.

The driver of the truck that hit 1564 got jail time (unlicenced, lied about who was driving, tried to leave the scene, etc.); wonder if he's still inside. (He got four years for this incident, on top of another four for another offence for which he was out on bail at the time)

The driver of the bus left the job a year or so later, and is now driving a mining truck on FIFO.

Saw 1210 operating Route 111 in the city. I'm pretty sure that this is the only O405NH at Palmyra (with the normal green livery).
