That's an SL202 for you. They can get pretty cold sometimes, not that that's a bad thing.


I was actually pleasantly surprised, as it was quite warm and I had to run for it, so I was a bit sweaty.

T219 as in G22X? I thought you said Morphettville had banned 800 series SL202 from them?

That's what I thought, but it happened to show up on TT, after I boarded 444 on the same run, so alighted, walked in the rain back to A2, and caught the ZF one. I've seen a few do this run in the past few weeks, but I heard reports of at least one doing this run virtually every day this week, so decided to give it a go.

I've seen five SL202 CNGs doing G22Xs over the last couple of weeks. The ex-O-Bahn ones have also done them at least three times over the same period of time.

Not quite current public transport, but on Australia Day I had a ride inside an original restored Cobb & Co horse drawn coach (2 horsepower) around Carcoar (NSW historic town between Blayney and Cowra). Being interested in the heritage of road passenger transport this was a real buzz for me. Don't know that there are many opportunities left these days to do that.

Re: What Public Transport Did You Ride In Today?

To avoid any further confusion, I request that members posting route numbers and/or vehicle numbers are to post the correct, current route/vehicle number at the time of posting. If you wish to refer to one particular portion of a through-running route (e.g. the northern part of an M44), then refer to it as such.
