Is 2569 back at Shenton Park? Saw it doing 791.
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.

No, any Swan SOR depot does the 791. Saw 1627 do it this morning.

Cheers! :wink:

P.S Damn you sylar, only 53 minutes late to post it :lol:

Sorry for the short notice, but today is the last day of Country Week. If any of our resident gunzels who aren't stuck behind a desk or steering wheel are free, head out to Challenge Stadium. Buses will be around both ends of the stadium.

NOTE: There will be school kids around. Don't do anything you shouldn't.

1863 is a full-length OC, not a midi. It's one of Malaga's though, recently there have been quite a few buses moving between Welshpool and Malaga/Bayswater (though they rarely stay there for more that a couple of days)

Welshpool does have OC midis 1910-17 and 1919 and they can end up on 36/294s from time to time

Must have been swapped back early, by chance I caught it on a 530 out of Cockburn at around 10:30am today.

1905 is/was also at Rockingham, saw it running 555s this afternoon.

2834 is delivered and in service at Shenton Park as well

Also: Busselton NHs 1158, 1159, 1173, 1174 and 1177 have all been withdrawn and parked at the back of CV Depot along with ex-Geraldton NHs 1160 and 1301, and a handful of ex-Transperth stuff. Not sure what's gone to Busselton to replace them

Spotted TP0100 just after 6pm tonight doing 935F on Alexander Rd Belmont

Never seen this series this far East - always see them on 960’s in Vic Park

Was it change-off or is it always regular service at that time?

100 and 101 are both at Welshpool Depot now (from Malaga), they'll be there for the foreseeable future as they're covering for the Welshpool OCs that are away being refurbished

A few Swan buses have moved around with Mt. Claremont opening on the weekend.

All of Beckenham's remaining artics (3019, 37, 40, 43, 46) have been moved there, seen them all around on 950s now.

Midvale's 2450 (edit: seen 2454 too) has been moved to Beckenham.

That's all I've seen, anything else?

Is North Freo depot still operating or has it's fleet and operations relocated to Mt Claremont ?
