Torrens Transit Nos. 1788, 1789 & 1790

Postby Tim Williams » Sat May 12, 2018 4:20 pm

Neither of the two Hybrids (1788 & 1790) have, as yet entered service (one, at least is at Mile End, along side of the fence, next to Richmond Rd)) - does anyone have any idea why they are just sitting idle??

I have not seen Bustech CDI 1790 for a few weeks now - is it still running to and from the airport with its very light loads??

The number 1790 is already being used by the double decker, so unless it's been suddenly withdrawn from AdMet service, it seems strange to have duplicated numbers, or ones following on directly from bus chassis types that were designed over a decade prior. I think 1991 and onward would be more appropriate, or 1541.

I am sorry, the numbers I put in the post were incorrect.

What I meant to say was - what has happened to the 2 hybrids 1788 & 1789 and is the CDI Decker 1790 still circulating on the Airport Express??

I am in town 2-3 times a week and I keep seeing 1790 in service.

One of the hybrids has been on some sort of tour/ demo in both Qld and NSW recently.
