Here's a great collection of photographs I recently chanced across.

Interesting that Darwin once had a collection of 12 or so articulated buses (7 Volvo B10Ms, 4 M.A.N. SG220s and the lone Leyland B21).
At least until recently, there were four Scania L94UAs of varying age and configuration in service, although two have since been sold to Torrens Transit in South Australia and have entered service. I've heard rumours as to the fate of the other two, but as no official details have come my way, that sort of hearsay is best left un-posted. It is unclear whether these L94UA buses will have direct replacements. All I can guess is that 'something' will eventuate in the near future, as the NT Government have expressed interest in boosting the minimum service level to 30 minutes in the next 2 years or so.
