I rode to the city on 3401a couple of days ago departing the Parkside Hotel at about 3.40pm and a bunch of school got on at the same time, with one commenting that they were traveling on a "Boris Bus" - I was amazed that a young girl would have heard of the NBFL (Borismaster).

In other news, 1790 is still sitting at the back of Aldgate depot. Visible from Mt Barker Rd and Ashenden Rd if you know where you’re looking.

3379 ex-2858 has also been on the artic tracks since July, and hasn’t moved
First person on 822, 865 (2016 re-route).
Last person on 164, 867, 868

They do not seem to be in a hurry to get 1790 into service, unless they are waiting for some seats and other stuff!

I don't know whats so amazing about that, they have Google now.
I was parked down at a rally at semaphore a while back and a group of young girls and a boy walked past and said 'What kind of car is that ?
The boy said 'Orr it's a 🤬 old Ford, 25 years old.
One of the girls wipped out her phone, presuming looking at Google and said 'Oh it's a NA NC Fairlane.

Buses are not as widely known about or discussed as cars - not sure what your point is!!

Both deckers are at Aldgate depot, out of service until roadworks on the SE Freeway at the Crafers area are completed.

3401 is back in service - it passed me as I was walking up Glen Osmond Road at about 10.35am this morning. I haven't seen the CDI in service, as yet.
