Cheers! If only I could figure out how to compress images (to be within the 1000px/300kb limit) without completely ruining them... :|

*Tried to upload a better one... it kinda worked but not really?

http://perthbus.info/report.php?vid=TP1744# says it's been decommissioned, but it is definitely still out there carrying passengers around...


1743 and 44 have had an interesting past few weeks. They were briefly stored before heading to Mandurah for a week or two, then headed up to Freo. I think 1196 swapped with 1743 (ie. 1743 went back to Joondalup and 1196 went down to Freo), but I have no idea why :P

1178 - 80 also are back home at Freo (since Mandurah had 2906-8 delivered which replaced them).
Officially the first person to ever tag onto bus 2685 - 6/4/18, 2904 - 27/7/18 and 2906 - 9/8/18 !

Noticed that 3034 has a ZF EcoLife badge on its rear. Any explanation as to why this may be here or any other buses have it?

From memory, 3034 was shown off to ABC Magazine by Volvo. It may have had something to do with that, so that in photos, it shows the gearbox manufacturer. Looks good either way
If it's not a ZF, take it back!

Looks like set 47 is getting repaired. So much for going to the "scrappers" that people claimed it was heading to

As people have said, it moves around under it's own steam, so there's probably not that much damage.

B-Series 77 was seen operating the Armadale Line this morning, departing Armadale at around 7:40AM. Told by a Railcar Driver that there was a shortfall of A-Series units.

Had a ride on 1198 a couple of days ago, the windows would rattle like mad for a good 5-8 seconds after hitting a speed bump!

I know I'm not a moderator but can I please remind people that the observations thread is meant for NEW and UNUSUAL sightings...

In regards to 1198, just to answer the question, those bonded windows on the Volgren bodies have really bad flex.
