Private Observations - January 2018 to June 2018

Postby Stu » Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:58 am

Something bright to kick off the new year.

Busways - unknown chassis under a CC CB80 body was in TfNSW styled chevron livery in orange & white, this is what Forest Coachlines did a few years ago with green & white. Observed travelling West on Canterbury Rd, Punchbowl during the late afternoon (03/01/2018).

^ From a distance I thought that the livery as in the style of the TfNSW chevron however after looking at the photos I can see that this is not the case - very effective livery.

Another Bus accident, happened yesterday in Illawong but no one has reported it here yet so It looks like I get the honours of posting it

http://www.theleader.com.au/story/5153324/buses-crash-on-old-illawarra-road-no-passengers-on-board
A bus driver had to be freed by emergency services following a crash between two buses at Illawong earlier today.

Just after 8am police and emergency services were called to Old Illawarra Road near Blaxland Road, following reports of a crash between two buses.

The driver of one bus had to be released by Fire & Rescue NSW officers.

Both drivers were treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics for minor injuries and did not require further medical treatment.

No passengers were on the buses at the time of the incident.

Both drivers were breath tested at the scene with a negative result.

Two northbound lanes on Old Illawarra Road were blocked for a short time, before the buses were towed from the scene.

The road has since re-opened to traffic.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.


Luckily no passengers were on board the bus but hope both drivers are okay :(

As for what bus this, I've come across an uncensored photo of the white Transdev Bustech on Facebook from the scene but the plate is bent so I copied the photo into MS paint to try and figure out the fleet number but it was still to hard to make out the fleet number. Best guess I can make out is it being bus m/o 7559. The other bus is a Mercedes-Benz Transdev bus. Unfortunately can't make out the plates or fleet # on that one .

Photos from the paper (There is two more I haven't liked here on the paper)

Image

Inside of m/o 7559? Pretty wrecked so I don't think anyone odds are too high on this bus being fixed and returned to service. Will likely be used for parts and will be a write off.

Transdev Mercedes-Benz Bustech Metrobus rear (Front photo of the bus can be seen above, front damage isn't bad but the back looks buggered)

Previous buses in the transdev fleet suffered similar incidents and have been fixed and put back on the road, So I wouldn't say they'll be withdrawn and used for parts just yet.

I'm not sure how common this is but today I caught 3617 MO from Hunter Valley Buses Thornton and on the back of half of the seats, they had advertisements on the back of them for some Retail SDA thing. Wanted to grab a photo but too many people on the bus.

Also no photos again but I caught 7398 MO on route 180 from Hunter Valley Buses which is Volvo B7RLE Volgren Optimus bus today. They hardly if ever operate the 180 route. Usually it's the MAN 12.220's or Mercedes 0405NH's that operate routes to Singleton with a small chance of a Scania Volgren bus operating the route as well.

Most likely Revesby helping out for another depot run, nothing else as other depots does in return.

Well, this is the first time I've seen a bus from Revesby in Fairfield for a reason other than rail replacement.

Sighted in Caringbah this morning was TV 8710 which is not in the fleet list and did not carry accreditation, BCI PK6127A with VIN ending in 0612 which most likely makes it:
528 JSE BCI PK6127AT LSFC130886C000612 BCI - 2006 C50F
ex (56) 528 JSE, Bus It Queensland, Nebo, QLD.

which is shown in the Maguire Coaches - Chinchilla withdrawn vehicles.
