Noticed the 190 going along Linda St at Ascot Park this morning and I thought it was pretty weird considering that's not part of the 190's route. I also checked on MetroMate to see if there were any detours but apparently not. Any other ideas for this? Thanks in advance

It could have been NIS running, but I can't think of how a TT vehicle would ever need to go via this route.

At times, drivers forget to change the desto, hence the reason why I saw 'Glenelg - J1' on an NL232 heading along West Lakes Boulevard once.

But there are no buses that run along Linda St so that's why I found it especially weird

I think there was an incident (fallen Stobie pole??) at the corner of Raglan Ave and Marion Rd this morning. This may have caused 190 services to detour.

Also, 1319 has a new AOA.

Low hanging electrical wires from the strong winds overnight on Raglan Ave just east of Marion Rd. 190 Buses detoured but only for about an hour. Linda St must have been part of the detour.

Should have been all the way from South Road. It was pretty lame as it was and most people ignored it anyway. Ya-boo-sucks to all those who got fined for using it though :)

That's a shame but I guess it couldn't last forever on the track. :(

441/443/444/445 have only a few months left before they are replaced.

Just out of interest, Phonj mentioned the changes to conditional registration scheme. As someone who owns an ex DECS school bus with the intention of keeping it in preservation (but want the pleasure of having the luxury of taking it out for a spin whenever I feel like it) what does the CRS involve? (Feel free to PM a response if it's easier, saves the thread going off topic). Cheers in advance!

I saw 443 this morning. I can confirm it still has its guide wheels on.

What's the point of retaining guide wheels on a bus that will supposedly never see track work again?

Are they being retained for some weird scenario, such as what occurred on July 11 last year? IIRC, 443 was the only O'bahn equipped bus available after a St Agnes artic broke down.

1334 appears to have been transferred from Port Depot to Camden Park, probably temporarily.
Please leave via centre door.

Missing from the Sealink fleet list is (50) SB25HG Toyota Coaster seen at Hahndorf last Friday. Will be adding a photo to the photo gallery in the next week or so.

Saw 441 at Marion today starting a 248 to the city. Completely deafening sound. A lot louder than the other SL diesels I've heard in recent times

I've never heard an SL202 being painfully loud on the outside. 432 was the loudest SL202 I had ever been on before it's retirement.

Yeah, it's the same for me as well before today. I heard 438 earlier on last week and that was nowhere near the SL202 I heard today

2751 (old 2724) has a different style engine flap at the rear featuring a grille on the radiator side.

It does not appear in the fleet list but it could be the Higer which is listed as SB70JR - SB70JR in a rego check shows as a Scania but unfortunately SB70JZ shows as make unknown.
