Again, as per usual, this is unknown to most outside the industry. Only time will tell which three will be prepared to be sent out. It might not be a 2100 or 2200 either, it could potentially be a 2300.

Most likely the 21** or 22** ones with CR228 body.
Which 3 21** or 22** B7s may possibly go to Carnarvon to replace 1205, 1206 and 1208?
Is there any reason specifically for the 2100 or 2200s being stated?

Why not 1400's or 1600's in the Volvo's, pretty much anybody's guess until know for certain
Looking to getting more Transperth bus, train and ferry models made up through Transit Graphics.

It could be due to their age. The ones that were sent out to Bunbury and Kalgoorlie are among the oldest Volvos. I'm not expecting an Optimus one to be deployed to the bush at this stage.

Because another user previously took a wild guess and it seems people are running with it.

There's no indication that Carnarvon's NHs are going anywhere anytime soon, and when they eventually do nobody here can say what will replace them. Same goes for any other region so TransRegional, can you please stop posting the same questions every other day?

Or perhaps people can stop replying with wild speculation and guesses...?

Yes, I think that's what those ex. Karrinyup OCs are doing down at Southern River. Have also heard 3007 and 3026 are presently (or were) up at Karrinyup.

My suspicion is it is a temporary arrangement while the Fremantle line is running a reduced service and the 700 School Special is operating.

On Beach Rd in Warwick... could have been one of Malaga's OCs on a 344 or 371...?

I think the last Coachair unit at Malaga was 1875 (midi). All others came with Thermo Kings.

All of the SR buses are present and accounted for more than likely would have been a PATH bus

How do you know 3106 is in service?
