Logan City Bus Service B12BLEA Testing

Postby Volvo B12BLEA » Tue Jul 01, 2008 3:30 pm

This morning Logan City Bus Service Volvo B12BLEA Custom Coaches CB60 EvoII #116 was going through some final testing between the Logan Hyperdome & Brisbane CBD.
If all went well, 116 & sister unit 117 are due to enter revenue service tomorrow, Wed 2nd July.
I am aware pics of one of the units on the Adelaide O-Bahn have been posted, as far as is known these are the first pics of the bus out on the road in Brisbane that are available for public viewing.

Here is 2 pics I took of #116 at the City end of its testing.
Enjoy & comments welcome as always.

Passing through the Cultural Centre Busway Station and about to proceed across Victoria Bridge into the City.

On the Victoria Bridge heading outbound with the CBD providing a backdrop. Sorry about the front being in shade.

Great pictures Peter even with the shade bit, obviously they were also waiting for a new year before surfacing them.

Thanks for sharing some good first pictures of LCBS's new B12BLEA artics on the streets of Brisbane.
Looking forward to finally seeing them in full service tomorrow (fingers crossed).

One will be in service on Thur Fri & possibly Sat driven by a fellow board member. It will be doing Rte 555 while he has it.

Good luck with that. Clarkes stopped playing in the Charter market years ago.

Aren't you missing 50 ? Also how would CC fit all these artics plus the few hundred rigids at the same time as well? Not to mention anyone else who might want a CC bodied bus....

I heard 100 artics + 50 rigids, but that could have changed.
The STA may have priority over others due to the size of the order OR Customs Adelaide might build some of the STA batch or private bus orders.

At least everything went right, and has been for the last two years, apart from the 117 having a few starter problems, but they were fixed and it is now running good, lets just hope it stays that way.
Waiting to see what BT, LCBS and other artics I get on next
