I have a feeling that 3034 is at Canning Vale at the moment. Seen it a couple of times, heading back to CV Depot.

2823 delivered to Canning, not sure if it is in service yet. I think 2825 has been delivered too but I'm not sure where it ended up. 2824 and 26-29 are in Welshpool in various stages of readyness so we should see them out in the coming weeks too.

2939 delivered to Joondalup but wasn't in service as of yesterday

*Also, it would appear that RCCTS4 is heading for refurb too

Well, 2200 would be normal. It's a CNG OC, not a diesel.

Cheers! :wink:

Additionally, expect to see 1719-21 sticking around for the next few months, at least.

Completely normal. I believe 2200 has mostly spent its days at Freo but could be wrong. I think the "odd" fleet number is just how things panned out, much like the succession in fleet numbers for each operator with the B7s.

2200 aside there seems to be a bit of regional movement anyway so does anyone know what’s moving or moved?
The.perthbus website seems to have gone from excellent updates and photos to virtually useless

B7s 1483-91 have gone to Bunbury, not sure how many more are going down

OCs are leaving Bunbury, I know 1465, 2099, 2100 and 2110 have left Bunbury (that I know of, probably more have gone too) and are bound for Geraldton. I think they're replacing all of the NHs up there, which will likely be withdrawn as most of them are pushing 20 years old. There's a fair chance their 1200s will move elsewhere but that's just speculation at this point.

Bunbury is also sending NHs to Busselton, 1586 has gone down last I checked with more 'on the way'.

That's all I know

B-Series 77 made its appearance again on the Armadale Line today since September 2018.

2825 went out on its first day in service today, out of CV depot. 2823 is there too but haven't seen it yet.

I have seen 2823 in Cannington while i was on 3029 doing 34F.

And BTW, TP3001 was seen with a different and blue AOA featuring Lewis Hamilton instead of the HBF one.

Ah yes, I figured it was in service when I saw 2825 out, but Canning Vale buses are notoriously difficult to track down since they cover such a wide area. It eluded me last week, hopefully I'll have better luck this week!

3001 got that AOA at the start of March. 2074 (Uber Eats), 2678 (Green Tyre Project), 2318 (Athena Home loans) and 2579 (HBF) are recent AOA changes/new AOA buses that haven't been reported here I don't think

3001's ad isn't for Lewis Hamilton, it's for Tommy Hilfiger.

Yes that's the one but that's the only distinctive thing i can only remember though, shame i didn't get on as i was on my way to attend Friday prayer at Mirrabrooka Mosque.

So could this be one of the two bendies that advertise fashion, being TP3006 having H&M wrapped?

I agree on that too especially when finding TP1542/43 or the white destos.

I wasn’t sure if this was worth starting a new post but the Australind is now cancelled “indefinitely” all rail services will be replaced by coaches until further notice

No one (Besides me) was aware that the Australind Railcars also went for a major maintenance between February and April this year but i think this one might arise from that.

Very unfortunate for those who make use of the service.

Hoping (but not holding my breath, the regions barely get a glance from politicians) the replacement program includes provision for service expansion and future upgrades to the line. Faster railcars and a more useable service would go a long way to boosting usage of the line by residents and tourists (especially if more tourist facilities or connections were available at the Bunbury end). Being able to turn up without a booking and use your SmartRider would be great, too.

I saw 1542 Tuesday or Wednesday on Albany Hwy (driving past my workplace near Kent St), so either doing 177/78/79 or 220

TP-1120 was the last bus I drove for Metrobus, Saturday 27th June 1998.

I dont think doing 220 because these route now run by FULL SOUTHERN RIVER SHIFT. however, if that happen in the morning or peak afternoon maybe yes
