Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2021

I haven't seen any Malaga buses serving on the old 346, but had once seen a 18** OC on 347. Could have been 1858 though. Also vaguely remember seeing a 17** series NH gassie on the old 373. Only happened if Mike 2 or Mike 3 had to cover a trip, if Kilo 3 was already occupied and there was no other ...

Re: $90 million upgrade for Stirling bus bridge

Sometimes there will be a driver change for the 999 at Southlands. The next driver usually waits for the incoming 999 with a spare bus from CV. Morley, OATS STREET, Southlands, Murdoch Park'n'Ride and Stirling are all relief points on the Circle. tonyp: Regarding Fremantle Station, it's the start p...

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2021

Today I was at Perth busport and noticed that TP2049 doing Route 389 to Wanneroo. I think that this was the first time that an OC500LE CNG doing a bus service to Wanneroo. Most certainly not. Trigg used to have their fair share of 346's, which in turn meant that plenty of OC500LE's have done 346's....

You must be talking out of stater language? There is no such thing as layover time in the modern Transperth Era... Unless you call 1 or 2 minutes between trips excessive?

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

BD12, wasn't there a period where Midvale would do 294T-229F-229T-294F on a Saturday? I think another depot (maybe Beckenham or CV) would do 229T-294F-294T-229F at the same time?

Welshpool used to exclusively run the 507 and had 1x peak hour 508F. 32's and 34's were shared between WP, BK, CV and SR. Midvale exclusively ran the 294, apart from 1 trip for a short period which was on a Southern River shift. PATH used to share running between Malaga and Bayswater Depots, as well...

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

It wouldn't have the front from 0109 on it. 2033 is a Swan bus which means donor parts from dead vehicles come from Swan buses, not PATH buses.

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

Armadale Line Services were suspended from first service until early afternoon, due to another Code 8 at Kelvin Road Level Crossing. Not sure of the car numbers involved. Missed out on doing Rail Replacement too, as my phone was on silent due to a family issue overnight.

They will have the same mechanical specs as that of 3033-3102, however the body will have modifications similar to that of the new B8s, with Thoreb screen moved to underneath the multiplex panel, exterior cameras etc. Not exactly. They have a taller diff to try and compensate for the constant diff ...

Operational requirements sometimes mean that buses assigned to special running have to be used elsewhere. A prime example of this, is its not uncommon to see a Dolphin on normal road running. Saw Dolphin 3 on a 549 a few Saturdays ago. Another good one was 731 running 10's one morning in Joondalup. ...
