Looking at my scribbled notes I think 1375 should’ve been 1725. I’ll check it out next week

Just read my notes again and I ‘think’ 1375 should’ve been 1725. I’ll check it out again next week.

Has anyone seen 1503 recently?

I doubt it's a write off. Yes it was heavily damaged, but appears to be mostly contained to the engine area. It's also a ten-month old artic and those are not cheap to replace. It'll be off-traffic for a while but I think we will see it again.


3091 is in service (not sure when it returned to service) but I saw it in action at Warnbro Train Station this afternoon.

Everything you listed at Shenton Park is in service, as is 1721, but everything else you listed is in storage or withdrawn.

Notably 1536 and 37 returned to service briefly at Canning Vale a couple weeks ago to presumably cover for 1486 and probably 87 which are being moved to Bunbury very soon, but looks like 1542/43 and the new B7 deliveries have meant they're no longer needed

Thanks for 1547, been wondering where that ended up



Have any other 14xx Volvo B7s been moved to Bunbury other than 1483 at this stage ?

2814,2815&2822 have been delivered to midvale. However been told 2822 won't be in midvale much longer going to another depot I'm guessing Canningvale. 2816 is rumoured to be going to midvale at this stage.

Another rail shutdown, another day out spotting rail replacement buses along the Freo line. 100% Swan this time, nothing too unusual except the single NH that came out to play!

Buses out today (formatted this way to save space):

1338
1633 1638 1650 1666 1672 1683 1690 1696
2401 2405 2415 2438 2442
2564
2821
3003 3009 3019 3021 3022 3034 3040
3049 3052 3055 3058 3061 3064 3067
3070 3076 3079 3082 3085 3101 3102

Additionally, 1333, 1599, 1607 and 3023 were noted on standby/supervisor buses at Freo and in the city, but none saw service as far as I'm aware.

I think it's back at Malaga now.

In other news, 2816, 2818, 2830 (!!!!) and a couple other newbies noted at Volvo's workshop this morning.
