2186 came south on a change-off, and a 22xx went up to Joondalup. Haven't been changed back yet.

It should be noted that there were 4 trains backed up on the Joondalup line between Glendalough Station and the Fremantle Tunnel due to a security issue at Elizabeth Quay.

Just saw this one there, however is that seems still lacking a trip of the "Crown Bus" to Crown?? (Departs 9:20am Monday and Friday)

Image

Bus 1662 did the first trip of route 355 from Ellenbrook to Whitfords, which was connected by route 334.

Seems the route 352 can utilise the stops 27688 and 27689 as well, as the route 355 can stop at those stops there. :o

Just been on recently refurbed 1613. I must admit the seats in these recent refurbs are nice. Noticed immediately when I sat on them, they put extra padding in the seats.
