If it is, I wonder if they'll want (2)450 back. It is just a standard K320UB with the build style of most K280UBs in service.

Could've been numbered 2400 instead of something obscure, but it's not highly relevant, provided that it can be identified.

Unnecessary additional post in lieu of simple edit, but from what I can tell, 2415 is definitely a write off.

Severe damage to the body, and the chassis probably wouldn't be worth salvaging. Lonsdale will be able to commemorate their first arrival of a precision buses model to replace it, unless something from TT is transferred.

I wonder what the commuters will think of it.

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.
Back in service this morning on the O-Bahn.

282 is on the dead track behind Port workshops minus its engine. So I guess that will be a long term absentee from being in service.

If it was me doing it, it would be done in a day. Some workers draw out jobs to make more money, a bit like when a taxi driver takes the long way.

There is no 1352 the ex Darwin NL202 fleet goes from 1351 to 1353 however it is strange they didn’t number 1353, 1352
I think there was supposed to have been a 1352 but it had mechanical faults from what I heard.

Yes, from what I’ve seen in depots and on road.
2558 being a typo for 2858 I assume

If 2203 and 2206 are at Edinburgh north what is the 2 2200's that have been sitting on the grass area at Lonsdale depot since Busways took over as every other one has been accounted for and been in service?

Scania Bustech 1067(Morphettville Depot) came into service several weeks ago, but appears to have been off the road most of the time since?

That's really bad 😠😡 to sit any motor vehicle on a grass area, I would recommend bark chips as one of the best things.
