Re: SydneyTrains advertising/Vending Machines updates

Vending machines cost hardly anything to run, the reason they price them so high is because they know people will pay the money because its the only thing around!

Re: SydneyTrains advertising/Vending Machines updates

Coca cola place is in north sydney so I think that's why. They only have 450ML bottles in coke and fanta, lift etc powerade and mother can't. And I don't see why they're trialling it or doing it at all because it can't go to all stations as only glass fronted machines can get 450ML bottles the stee...

Re: Transdev Melbourne news January - June 2014

(270) was one of the worst ones at Croydon, and it only got the second hand Southport desto at Croydon because the original Luminator unit died, and it was very quickly bodged in with the controller placed sideways on the back of the desto box door. There were a few others that were all over yellow,...

Re: Transdev Melbourne news January - June 2014

It'll be hard to prove. But from the looks of the car and the bus (which are both damaged on the front), it appears the car driver was making a right-hand turn into King St, didn't realise the bus wasn't going to stop and got wiped out. Not hard to prove at all, it'll all be on the front facing CCT...

Unless I'm not looking at right place, it appears the diversion is only one block long and doesn't even miss a stop in the St Kilda direction?

Re: NSW Government to expand & upgrade CCTV to combat crime

Source? It's part of what PTV calls "intelligence-based deployment". The latest Revenue Protection Plan doesn't specifically reference CCTV, however the 2012 plan did make a brief reference to some AOs being based in the "Communication Room", so it certainly does happen. Please provide a source tha...

Re: MAN A69 18.320 dashboard pics

Ahh! Now I get it... most likely Volgren had placed it on the right side console under TSS specifications. He is talking about the "Bus Stop Brake" which on the MAN bubble dash is usually mounted to the right of the right hand heater vent on the dash. You can see a small round blanking plug in the ...
