Ideally, these forums shouldn't be cluttered up with speculative, pointless comments that don't add anything new or useful to the discussion.

While 2780 has been registered, pretty sure it hasn't been delivered yet. That said, I think 1566-68 were technically replaced already by 2776-2778, but the NHs are sticking around for a little bit longer.

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

2975 and 2976 both entered service at Rockingham today, which should spell the end for the first two CR226Ls 1215 and 1216.

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

Are you sure it's returned to service? 1347 was withdrawn from service and has been doing COVID shuttle runs for months and months now Which others are on Covid shuttle duties other than 1347? It's pretty random, but 1346-1348, 1569-1571 have all been seen running them, along with random B7s (mostl...

Re: Transperth Bus Fleet by Depot / Region

Been a little while, so here's a current (as far as I know) list for mid-October 2020. Lots of little movements have been happening here and there since my last post so figured I'd just type up a new list. === Path Transit === Malaga: 104-108, 110, 111, 1399-1416, 1462, 1566-1568, 1724, 1855-1877, 2...

Re: Bus Routes - What would you do if you were in charge?

Bus Suggestions has given me a radical idea involving 23, 102, 103 and 970. Maps are at routes.one website. So I had a look out of curiosity, and honestly I don't really see the appeal of any of these. 102 - Do we really need more services running down the terrace? 103 - Not sure on this either, ge...

And yet, the person who's lived in Rockingham for a good few years is still yet to see any of the dolphins on anything but!

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

Yeah there's about another 50ish out in the country too, but withdrawals out there don't follow a consistent pattern like the Transperth ones do. I presumed we were talking about Perth ones, anyway.

You'd be right, though there's only 30 NHs left so you could say they're pretty much all due for retirement soon.

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

Bit of a different observation to what I usually post, but there are currently four Merc O500/BCIs belonging to Crown Coaches (VIC) parked up on Freo wharf. They all still have Victorian plates fitted but I couldn't make out any regos unfortunately. Long way from home!

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

From the look of things, it would appear that Midis will no longer be in production. For the time being, perhaps. Who knows what the future holds. Even SR stopped accepting Midis after losing 3 of them in accidents. What do accidents have to do with anything? 1593 was written off in 2013, and 1597/...

2038 is back from refurb, I assume 2036 and 37 have returned as well. This leaves 2039 as the last bus I believe in the 1999-2010 livery, although I believe it should be away now.
