A look at S1631 Volvo/volgren Optimus B8RLEA

Post by 1of55 »

Sherwood depot BT Volvo/Volgren Optimus B8RLEA Euro 6. THOREB Display was not lit, probably white, with side and rear number display panels. Three bifold passenger doors. Drivers compartment not fitted with a security screen. Said to be longer than other BT articulated buses. (More than 18metres?)

S1631 Volvo/Volgren Optimus B8LEA in service on route 66 at Queensland University terminus. It gives a smooth ride and appears to have as much acceleration as the B12s. My apologies for the display but after several attempts it would not come right in the photo.

I've never been able to photo the new buses without getting distortion from the desto. i'm guessing they've set a new refresh rate. The problem is only on buses 2309 onward (and S1631+) from what i've noticed.
Still waiting for a MAN SL200 to catch to school. Might be waiting a while....

The Thoreb display shown clearly.
UQ Lakes a good place to test a high capacity bus. The queue did not shorten from 60 meters for 2 hours.
