Perth 5 Day Rail shutdown Rail replacment Buses 12/17 July 2

Postby High Floor Bus » Thu Jul 18, 2013 12:48 am

Perth rail network was closed for 5 days for works conecting the new sunken fremantle line under the old perth rail yards back to through running with the Midland line. With all lines converging at the western portal of the new "City link" tunnel , no trains were running into the city center.
This shutdown was ran different to last 3 day shutdown. instead of one Rail replacement bus route linking all terminating train line stations to the city.
The more normal individual rail replacement routes applied , 904 Joondalup line, 906 fremantle ect.
Anyway here are some shots from the last two days of Rail replacment, which was truly tested in the bad weather endured in the last day or two.

First up is Merc Benz 305G UQB670 leaving the Jame St Busway on route to leederville train station on a 904.

Cool shots, I was hoping someone would capture the moments. That Westwide Nissan JP251 would've been a delight to ride in :P Nice selection of all sorts of buses. The only time that the variety ever shakes up is on these massive rail replacement and on emergency rail replacement.

Never mind that Phonj, standing on King William St in Adelaide, you're not sure if it's Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane with all the odd buses going around there at the moment!

Thanks for sharing stuff I haven't seen since 3 years back. Is it just me, or is there a great big grey splotch on UQB720's front?

Thanks for 'uncovering' this topic again, some very nice shots here. I seem to see quite a few ex Adelaide buses among those pics, great collection and thanks for sharing :)

Yep, you're not the only one. It actually looks like that it has pealed off and is hanging upwards, just at the lower bit of the windscreen. Maybe a strong bit of wind caused that? :lol:
