Don't forget the 171C and 172C up to Carrick Hill.

Nothing uglier than seeing more and more CB80's all the time, about time we got something different.
Some Volgren Optimus would still be alright to see floating around Adelaide too.

Re: [July/Aug 2016] SA transport observations

Well anything would make it up the hill but the difference is at what speed and how much of a hazard i.e.mobile chicane, would it present to other road users. That's my point, the statement 2801 wouldnt even make it up the south eastern freeway is slightly incorrect. There were even some SL200s in ...

Re: Night Shot Advice (and 1st attempt)

Helpful tips you will need a tripod, If using a DSLR its easy to achieve good results. 1) If your camera has P,S,A,M Mode's this will come in handy. 2) Try use an ISO that isn't Auto , try using an ISO where the grain isn't so bad for night shots on my camera I use ISO 100 - 500 with a tripod, depen...

Re: [May/June 2016] SA Transport observations

Given that LCB 880 had a new engine fitted not long ago, they shouldn't be too hard to source. How is this justified? When you say engine do you mean the back I know where the engine is but when you notice it comes back out into service and sounds a little different I'm assuming you mean gearbox? b...

Re: Motor melodies and maladies

...431 gets into the third gear a lot sooner than the other SL202s with Voith transmission (same with 439)... That is easily changed by messing with the gearbox computer. I didn't know that Voith's were able to be programmed I thought it was just ZF's 432 I had on a Norwood parade service last week...
