The thing was that I have been on a ZF O405 diesel high but not TP1288 back in my days. When I hopped on the O405 bus on the Route 111T, I heard some kind of weird vibration coming from the back of the bus. The good news was that the bus had a zippy take off from 1st to 2nd gear. A 4-speed ZF transmission would be better than OC500LE with 6-speed ZF as it screeched so loud.

Enjoy!
Nice shots of what look like nice buses. Are they seen as good buses?
I'm also assuming that they're high-floor, are they the last? Adelaide is down to it's last high-floor chassis (MAN SL202 with some CNG as well).

Long live the high-floor bus!

Our last high floors are Renault PR180.2, and Mercedes Benz O405 CNG's (like 1106, but, well - gas).

Cheers! :wink:
Officially the last person to tag off the 381 - 20/5/16.
Second last person to tag off the last timetabled 16 - 23/08/19.
Last person to tag off a Transdev Joondalup service - 19/1/20.

So just to clarify - the pictures shown above are of O405 Diesels, high floor but now removed?

Well, there were constant power struggles between drivers for them at the bus depots that these buses operated out of, if that's of any indication! :)

They're the last remaining high floor rigids in service in Perth, yes. The units pictured in my original post have all been withdrawn and were recently sold at auction.

I'd love to get hold of one of these for a camper conversion. What did they go for at auction? Any Ideas?
As for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
