LOL, there were on the Armadale Line two days ago.
The one who catches the Perth Stadium bus like an illegal immigrant by only to gunzel for buses & trains and/or to go anywhere else.

TP3085 always operates the first 654 trip to Perth Stadium.

Unless TP1462 and LB608 are referring to a different post, Midland/Freo Line is different to Armadale Line...

A B-set on the legacy lines? Tbh it's become so common recently, I'm pretty sick of people reporting it. Yes, there are a shortage of A-sets right now and a surplus of B-sets. Naturally this means some will spill over to the older lines. It's not really news
Currently working on my bus photography site where I'm aiming to photograph every Transperth bus in Perth - have (almost) everything!

Spotted a B set on platform 1 at Thornlie station at 9 this morning (platform 1 is rarely used). Also spotted one at Gosnells heading to Armadale at 9.25.

What's with the 9:10pm services from Perth station tonight? Are they for the wildcats game? They're not listed on https://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/Journe ... lets-71096

1721's just had a crapload of work done on it. Running really well at the moment.
