Ellenbrook Line feeders fall within Morley and Midland contract areas. Given Swan Transit already has taken Joondalup and Kalgoorlie packages, it seems likely they might have to sit out of Midland.

2124 and 2125 are Welshpool
And 2125 was earlier seen on 38 at CWBS eastbound.

Is That True that Albany is an all 16xx series b7 future bus fleet and now and albanys OC Diesels 1446-1450 have gone to Busselton and which NHs Have left Busselton and got replaced by the oc diesels and if this is the case Busselton has now got 1441, 1446-1450, 1463, 1464, 2109 and 2112 as OC Diesels so that brings it to a total of 10 OC Diesels in Busselton

One wouldn't need to be a genius to go "5 Volvo's moved down to Albany. How many OC diesels are in Albany? Oh 5! Perfect swap".

So uh anyway, yes Albany is an all B7 depot, however no one who would know where 1446-1450 are, would say where they are (due to the social media policies that companies have, which I've mentioned oh idk 3 or 4 times now.
Officially the last person to tag off the 381 - 20/5/16.
Second last person to tag off the last timetabled 16 - 23/08/19.
Last person to tag off a Transdev Joondalup service - 19/1/20.

I Believe that 1446-1450 have gone to Busselton to replace some 800 series buses.

Anyone Know what Depot buses 3465-3478 are at currently if any of these buses have entered service i know that 3462-3464 are at Wangara depot so I would presume that 3465-3478 are at Wangara too.

Saw a Ex-Busselton/Bunbury Volgren CR222L Bodied O405NH sitting at the front of the Canning Vale Depot. (Don't know exactly which one but it's got a distinctive front).

I can't imagine it'll be put into service here though considering it doesn't have a rear door. (Unless one was added later on in its life).

Two days ago 2786 operated 72T along Albany Hwy. I believed that the bus has been transferred to Welshpool depot.

Its registration has apparently expired.

If the bus has been spotted at CV, and the rego has lapsed, then those two details together would suggest the bus been withdrawn.

Whilst driving I also saw 1570 operating 221T along Albany Hwy. I believe that this bus jumped to SR.

HL7619. The fleet list they're referencing doesn't have them as regional, rather at Welshpool

Well, first off, hugely doubt you saw a 374 at Kingsway Shops, considering the closest it gets is Hepburn/Highclere.

Secondly, no, those buses are at Ellenbrook, and you saw 2 different buses.

Actually is definitely was 2512 and 2522 at Kingsway shopping Centre so they must have moved to either joondalup or karrinyup

They have not moved there as they are part of ellenbrook fleet.
