All of Beckenham's remaining artics (3019, 37, 40, 43, 46) have been moved there, seen them all around on 950s now.

Midvale's 2450 (edit: seen 2454 too) has been moved to Beckenham.

That's all I've seen, anything else?



Is North Freo depot still operating or has it's fleet and operations relocated to Mt Claremont ?



PTA/swan transits operations out of North Fremantle were based on month to month leases this has since expired with operations and bus fleets being shifted to coincide with the opening of the new Mount Claremont depot facility

2946 was the first to have the new livery (for those unaware, it's a minor change to the placement of the Transperth stickers on the sides. Recent refurbs such as 1377, 1974, 2006 have it too)

Edit: I was mistaken about 2835 having it too

For those wondering what the new livery looks like, here is a low-quality photo of it on 2003, which has been refurbed with the new livery:

It wouldn't be any different to the 12x B8 trial units that entered service last year ? Any ideas how many B7s to go before the new contract starts ?

I could only see the tiniest glimpse of it in the back of the workshop. It has a reversing camera, but it doesn't look like a standard fitting so I would assume it's for training purposes more than anything, but other than that it seems pretty much the same as the B8s we have. I assume most of the differences would be in the driver's cab, ie. button layouts and such.

I think there are about 16-18 B7s left to go before the new B8s start rolling out. [Speculation following, don't quote me on this:] If 2960 is a B8, I would say that 2947-59, and 2836-39/40 will be the last B7s [end speculation]. 2838 was in Welshpool today as well.

Not uncommon I’ve noticed with the schedule that there is usually 3 or 4 3car B sets allocated to the heritage lines alternating as required

For the last few months (at night from what I could see), and more-so since the deletion of semi-express patterns on the Fremantle and Midland lines, it has become common to see B-sets working on the heritage lines. There's nothing particularly unusual about it anymore.

2960 does have some differences to 2586-2589, 2677-2680 and 2753-2756.

There are now 2x 3 Car B Sets allocated to the Fremantle & Midland Lines during peak periods. Set 73 was floating on the Armadale line the other night as I had it on the 21:02 Down AS Service, after the West Coast Fever game.
