Could've been a change off. Many change offs occur between Morley contract area and Welshpool area.

Also will they swap more bus with Rockingham or maybe next is swap with path. (For example: 20xx karrinyup moving to path welshpool/morley while some diesel move to SWan)
It's starting to remind me of the great swap around that happened in 2007-08 involving vehicles from Malaga, Fremantle and Wanneroo, considering 2096 and 2097 were last based at Gosnells. I believe some KP B7s moving south was to cover for the loss of those 2 OCs.

Unless the NHs are getting laid up, otherwise I can't foresee any B7s leaving town anytime soon.

You keep asking this same question here and you'll keep getting the same answer - upcoming bus movements/replacements are privileged information, even if there are members here who are privy to such information it won't be shared here on a public forum.

Should we expect 2249 to pop up in the Trigg area anytime soon? This is starting to remind me of what happened in 2007/08 involving the CNG NH movements.

1626's rego now comes up as cancelled so it appears it's been withdrawn following its collision with a Horizons West bus back in March.

They'll probably end up at Morley since that's where Path's oldest OCs are.

It’s expired however PTA has until the end of the month to pay it. I’d say it’ll be repaired along with 3086

For those unaware, the following B8RLE's are fitted with Voith DIWA 864.6 Gearboxes:

TDWA: 2981/2982
PATH: 2789/2790
Swan: 3236/3237
If it's not a ZF, take it back!

Is Voith still using 4 speeds? I know ZF has gone from 4 to 6.
