G'day all,

The fleet swap has commenced. Mercedes-Benz O 405 NH CNG (1797) was recently transferred from PATH Transit Morley to it's new home at Southern Coast Transit Fremantle. Here are some photos of it taken in East Perth today.

How long until those Mercs start overheating because near to half the rear vent is covered? :twisted:

(especially those with the CNG pods like the one pictured!)

Do the perth ones have the section in the middle that's just backed with cardboard?

Nice shots Davey.

Those front indicators are dreadful!

What do the SCT drivers think of it?

The night drivers love it. It seems to be out every night now.

If 1797-1819 didn't get transferred to Southern Coast Transit it would have been doing routes e.g 345F or 349T.

I'm surprised nobody got shots of 1797-1819 doing 376-379, 17 mostly they do 59s, 62s, and 47s

Malaga/Bayswater didn't operate the 376-379 services after the first couple of years after privatisation. They were operated by Trigg/Joondalup/Wangara.

1797 & 1811-1819 spent most of their time on the circle as they were at Malaga. 1798-1810 spent their time on Morley Contract Mainline services and Feeders, as they were at Bayswater. 1798 and 1799 were unable to do night shift as they did not have security cabs.

Just for the record, a full list of the services they operated:
