May I ask you why this bus wasn't on its allocated afternoon shift? Instead it was 1102 yesterday afternoon. Oh everyone take note on that picture on Raymond St that yes that are the marks left from TP1854.

Re: Western Australia

I went past the area not long ago... If I remember rightly its on the routes 30,100 and 101 along Manning Rd I think. There were road works going on when I last past (Not saying why I was there). Then again I could be mistaken it for being on route 206 which I was also hanging around not long ago.

If it was on the tow because of a accident or some other problem it should still be in service at Freo I believe.

Re: WA Observations - April 2010

Poor old 704 was taken a bit fast and a bit sharp around a corner in Gooseberry Hill (on the way to start a trip) and isn't looking at all well: The back wheels were jammed and the fuel tank ruptured, as well as the obvious frame damage. It might be a write-off. Lucky TP3001 got a shot of it during...

Re: General - Auckland Part 2

Is 1733 in Go West livery old news or quite recent? I checked NZ Fleet Lists and another forum. NZ Fleet Lists has yet to update that bus livery details. Depending on what you call recent I'm guessing around two months or something there abouts. Perhaps someone knows more than me as I'm just readin...

UQB665 was on driver training this afternoon in the CBD. It was a strange sight realising later on after checking my notes that it should be down in Rockingham. it was transfered 2-3 weeks ago back to Mandurah......pretty odd for it to be in the city when its needed for the arvo school/service runs...

Yep. Maybe a good suggestion if you wanna build a OC500LE is to go to Volgren and watch them build it. Then you do the same but using lego!

Re: WIP pictures of my Mercedes Benz O305G bus in Transperth col

If someone can create a better bellows at that size (i.e. 8 studs wide and 6 or so bricks tall) that would be great. Its the one part of the bus I am not really happy with. I might just be able to create a bellows attached to an example section of a bus. (Of course its not going to be in TP Colours...

Re: WIP pictures of my Mercedes Benz O305G bus in Transperth col

Yes I have plans for stickers if I can. The bellows bends but only a very small amount and it wont stay bent. Oh okay. Just asking as I may sneak into TP3001 's lego box as I know that TP3001's got the right pieces to create a possibly fully working bellow/turntable. I'll see whether I can find the...

Great stuff there. I hope to see more. Are you going to put stickers on it like Transperth logo and stuff like that? Oh and does the bellows bend without breaking? If so it'd be great if you got a shot up...
