I'm surprised this hasn't got a mention here yet, considering what a big thing it is:

https://www.railexpress.com.au/wa-budge ... h-network/

I presume that this will be the means by which they can use existing lines to carry the additional trains that will come with extensions such as Morley-Ellenbrook, rather than having to quadruple track etc?

Saw a very lost CAT bus yesterday. 2680 (I'm fairly sure) was on Welshpool Rd, heading up the hill past Lesmurdie!

It was being driven by someone in hi-vis overalls, so presumably this was a diagnostic run rather than a wrong turn at St. Georges Tce.

Palmyra buses on the Yellow CAT during that time of day is fairly common, they are supplementary services for the afternoon peak period for usually an hour or so.

So, a lot of news (and sorry if its repeated):
2568 delivered to Shenton Park, seen doing a 23 this afternoon.
2566 & 2567 apparently are at Midvale (sources tell me this).
2557-2565 all delivered to Beenyup with white desto's. Only fault I can find with how Swan has programmed the desto's, is the number font.
2741 and 2742 are at Bayswater, Path's first two production white desto's.
3082-3085 all delivered with white desto's, the first B8 artics with them.
2297 (Spring in the City), 2426 (Spring in the City), 2318 (Spring in the City), 2074 (Optus), 1347 (Liquor Barons), 1729 (AMSI) and possibly another have all had updated AOA's (brackets are the ads).

Cheers! :wink:

Interesting to note is that the CAT on the refurbed OCs are full-on black, rather than only the black outline on the NHs.

Private bus runs of freeway

Postby Roderick Smith » Tue Oct 31, 2017 2:48 pm

Mitchell Freeway bus crash halts traffic.
PerthNow October 30, 2017.
TRAFFIC is at a standstill on the Mitchell Freeway northbound after a bus ran off the road and into bushes.
The private-owed, medium sized bus left the freeway at the Hodges Drive exit around 3.15pm.
There were no passengers onboard at the time.
A bus has come off the road near Hodges Drive on the Mitchell Freeway. Picture: Perth WA Revenue Raisers Alert / Facebook
Traffic is banking up after a bus ran off the road near Hodges Drive on the Mitchell Freeway. Picture: Mainroads
The bus driver has reportedly told emergency crews at the scene that he passed out at the wheel and can not recall what happened.
St John paramedics will assess the driver at the scene.
Traffic is down to one lane northbound in Connolly, and is already banked back to Ocean Reef Road.
Motorists are asked to seek an alternative route as arrangements are made to remove the bus from the bushes.
