Many of the differences are to do with the requirements as specified in the tender documents.

First off I posted that months ago, secondly I was told as a reply that the administrator was on holiday, thirdly I’m entitled to have whatever opinion I want and lastly I don’t live in Australia but I visit Perth regularly and when I joined I put a fair bit of time and effort into driving around depots and posting information on here but have stopped doing this as there are far to many armchair snipers criticising others on here.

Well, photo and gen updates are back online at perthbus.info so I don't think there's any much more to say about it. Back to the topic however, TP2007 has been refurbed.

Here's a cracking idea... If you don't like the service on Perthbus.info, then don't use it... Half of you wouldn't have a clue on what it takes to keep that website running.

Can we maybe get back on topic rather than filling this thread with petty bickering?

I think 104 has been back at Malaga for some time now. Pretty sure fellow board member TP1978 has driven it recently.

Don't think it's been mentioned yet (but maybe some have spotted it), the ex-Freo CAT midis (1178-1180) are back at Joondalup.

Also related to licences and the Freo CATs, 1178-1180's licences expire at the end of September this year.

Edit 2: 104 is back at Welshpool, just seen it leaving the city on a 296.

Wrong thread, but Kalamunda doesn't have gas buses. It's at Welshpool as a result of a change off, I believe with 1404. It'll make its way back to Malaga at some point

TP2013 has been refurbished in the new livery.

Already been mentioned but this one has done a good job at hiding 2014 is back as well I haven’t seen 2015 yet so can’t confirm, some of the PATH units older than 2013 haven’t been refurbished yet not sure which ones though

2007 is back, 2008 is away being refurbed, 2009-12 are still in service. Presumably because Welshpools refurbs are in full swing (4-5 of theirs are away at a time now), meaning Path doesn't have enough spare buses to cover more than one at a time for Malaga

2014 must have gone in in the last week or so, as it was out and about in old livery not more than 2 weeks ago. Also seen 2015 recently, but I'd say chances are it would be in now too.
