Re: Merc 0305G up for sale

Sorry , thank you for the corrections in regards to the Transmissions.
I know the Adelaide 0305G had a different trans from the rigids for the O-Bahn.

Re: Merc 0305G up for sale

After speaking to the owner, i have corrected him on a few issue he made with his ad.
It still has a Merc 0305G engine 280hp with the 0305G ZF transmission.
The owner corrected the ad and the bus sold within a minutes.

Re: 1923 (Merc 0305 Mk1) at Central station. 9/6/19

They are still one of the best buses ever made to operate in Australia.
I would rather drive an 0305 or 0305G any day compared to these new plastic buckets that operate today.

Re: New Midis for Lonsdale

These are very good units for route that are not to busy.
They are owned by Keolis Downer and there are currently 8 in the fleet between Willaston Depot, Edinburgh Depot & Lonsdale Depot.

The only issue is the slowness of the door opening and closing.

Re: Canberra light rail: Development applications approved i

I fully agree and I am really shocked that this is happening, I was sure ACT had enough buses to cover this should the Light Rail fail.

(Hint: no.) I can answer some of your questions but no all. Yes SA do have Photo Large Passenger Accredit...

Hi All. Drove past Precision Buses today at Edinburgh, 1788 is still sitting there next to the plant, she has been there for while I think. Is there an issue with these buses? I have not seen any in service yet, I am sure 1788 is over 12 months old, but I may be wrong. Can anyone shed light on this ...

Kermit Buses Mile End

Hi Everyone.

Just wondering what is the status of the 2 Kermit buses located at Mile End Depot.
It has now been 12 months since Kermit 1 was seen driving around Adelaide, but they still are not in service yet?

I do like the look of the Percission Buses made here in Adelaide Edinburgh Parks.

As I am from Adelaide and use to drive our B10ML buses, how come some of the artic fleet have 3 doors and some only have 2 doors?
Love these Volvo's they cream the Scania buckets anyday.
