Re: Victorian bus Observations - November 2009

Re: Trains & Buses get wet in Essendon!

It should be noted, that Connex deserves a good pat on the back for yesterdays performance. Yesterday I think was the first day in the history of Connex Melbourne, that slightly bad weather hasnt caused a catastrophic meltdown of the rail network. And for that, credit must be given. :lol:

Re: Grenda Bus #287 repainted.

My guess is that it has been repainted into standard Grenda Livery so that it has the flexibility of servicing a number of routes, and not just the one route as a Smartbus vehicle. it looks better like this i must say cant wait to get a photo at fountain gate or berwick P.S that artwork on the stati...

Being from a public school based on your observation, its almost certain that the school bus was infact a Metlink funded school bus. Being Metlink funded, the driver has the ri...

Re: Shuttle Bus to Kingston Heath #1.

I personally, am disappointed that 290 & 291 did these charters today. They could've been better used IMO. Oh well, as it stands then, you unfortunatly dont work within the Grenda group, and certainly dont work in the relevant field to make these decisions, so ultimately your opinion doesnt count. ...

Re: Grendas New Artics (Scania N310UA, Volgren CR228L).

Well, they look good, but I have question I'm firing at Grenda: Why choose the Scania N310UA? I personally would've chosen either the Volvo B12BLEA, or the Scania K310UA. Given the fact all their low floor artics are Scanias they probably wanted to stick with them. Does the B12BLEA offer the option...

Re: How important is the quality of oil?

This is common sense really.

Regardless of what type of machinery you are running, whether it be a bus or your standard family car, oil quality is important, and also using the correct oil to suit the vehicle you are running.
