2032, and I assume 2031, are back from refurb.

2496 is a Canning Vale bus, but is at Gosnells at the moment.
If it's not a ZF, take it back!

Swan's 3201 is out and about at the moment, seen leaving Stirling on the 1037 415 to Mirrabooka. Also seen was a (according to camera) blurry 3200 and 2032.

A pic of 3201 can pop up later.

Cheers! :wink:

Edited: Here's the shot of 3201.

2575 spotted on 517 at Thornlie. Has she been redeployed to CV or SR?

I have photo but I'm not sure how to upload it.

2575 and 2576 moved to CV a month or so ago, from Shenton Park.

Right then. Any movement from CV to SP?

I took a picture of 2575 on 517 at Thornlie station and I'd like to contribute that to Perthbus.info. How do I get about doing it?

TP0100 operated Route 034T this morning. I believed that the bus has transferred from Malaga to WP 3 weeks ago.

Did 100 move back to Malaga?

100-103 have been at Welshpool for at least the past year, covering for Welshpool's refurbs (which are now complete, so maybe we'll see them return)

On another note, seems 2033 is back from refurb and already off traffic, was on the news tonight having taken out a Toyota Corolla at a set of lights somewhere

edit: Might have misread the number, could have been 2023. Can't seem to find anything online about it in either case.

This obviously explains why I saw 0102 on 935 recently. That said, gassies on 935 have been less common ever since Redcliffe depot got back to business.

The bus that was struck by the Corolla is definitely 2033:

Is 2033 repairable or is it destined for the scrapyard?

It is definitely repairable - 2441 and 1850 were involved in an incident 3 years ago, both suffered more damage than 2033 yet both were returned to service.

It depends on the extent of the damage and whether or not the insurer writes it off, having said that looks like nothing more than a new front bumper, headlights and maybe a few new side panels

Mmmm worth noting that 2033 is one of the last OCs as well. It's only ten years old so it's still got like 6-8 years of life left in it, it'd take something pretty catastrophic to write off a bus with that much value in it

Is there anything useful left from 0109 to graft onto 2033?

Also, the fact that 1850 survived is a damn miracle given its advanced age.

i think the compare accident of 109 and 2033 is very different. because 109 was part of body and engine damage while 2033 only front damage. altough this happen to latest cng. if that happen to 16xx, 18xx and 12xx cng maybe the bus is written off.

Yes, the Coachair CNGs are the oldest. Lucky for Path Transit, none of those allocated to them have been involved in a road crash resulting in a write-off.

A side note, 1389 has an extra grille behind the rear right wheel. Only noticed it today. How many others have it?

0100-0103 have been at Welshpool for some time now, covering for refurbs as has been mentioned. 102 paid a visit to Malaga recently, but has since returned to WP. 100 did not return to Malaga

Can it also be made clear, that 2033 did not hit the car... it was the other way around.

2576 spotted yesterday at Thornlie station with one of its windows broken. Bus pulled from a scheduled 930 trip as a result.

Heard 1597/1598 accident was at Kelmscott. Exact details unknown. Saw 1597 parked up at SR. Front section looks crushed.
