Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

Swan's 3201 is out and about at the moment, seen leaving Stirling on the 1037 415 to Mirrabooka. Also seen was a (according to camera) blurry 3200 and 2032.

A pic of 3201 can pop up later.

Cheers! :wink:

Edited: Here's the shot of 3201.

Re: O500LEs: Great or Rubbish

Personally, my last ride of a Transperth (not regional PTA) diesel OC was, well, unsatifactory. Outbound on a 296 to Kalamunda, climbing Gooseberry Hill Rd - went around a roundabout, and went "what are gears?" and would not go. Required a full shutdown and restart. But other than that, they were re...

Re: Full Low Floor vs. Low entrance buses

Individual seats like on the Singapore buses were common practice in Perth, from the O405's until we got B7's. Also, Tim, the name for that style is the Citaro Facelift. As Mr OC Benz says there are horses for courses and if you are talking about high capacity low floor articulated vehicles in appro...

I thought Transperth fleet has already gone full WAB. Didn't know we still had high-floor artics. Anyway, it's a shame conditions aren't conducive for the B8Ls here. The last Renault PR180.2 (pretty sure it was 722), was around in March 2018, but scrapped shortly afterwards. And as much as I would ...

Re: VOLVO’S FIRST ELECTRIC BUSES IN AUSTRALIA DUE MID-2021

Volvo states the 7900E has a range of 200km, and with there being over 40 trips per day - based on your 4.5km circuit distance, it is at least 220km not including the trip to/from the depot. The NH's didn't do all the trips either, usually replaced by other midi's around midday.

Re: Accommodating passengers with limited mobility

A semi will not go around the same corners as rigids, let alone artics, without taking up twice the road, or probably destroying any street furniture. You try putting a semi on something like a 607X - getting into Sydney would be easy, but trying to turn from York to Druitt/from Druitt to Clarence, ...
