Re: O-Bahn extension ruled out

Existing services could be improved by removing the 3 minute loading time at TTP that seems to be present on all services outside of peak, even late at night.

It doesn't always take that long for 10 able-bodied pax to step onto a low floor bus.

The third letter of my word was a V, not an N.

Re: What makes you happy today?

The engines in modern buses are almost silent.

But I personally think that some of the now scrapped CNG MAN SL202s in Adelaide sounded better than at least some of the diesel Mercs.

Re: Buses out of service for long periods

I hope this is as accurate as the rumour of 898 and other SL202 being prematurely withdrawn sometime in 2016, and not actually true. There is no need to withdraw metro buses before they reach close to 25 years in this state. But somehow, I can't predict the diesel NLs still being around in large num...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

The never ending sound of that bloody Scania indicator in the CB80s and onwards. How this chassis is ranked number one globally is unfathomable.

Re: [Sept/Oct 2020] SA transport observations

They still do today. There is at least one T721 that leaves B1 KW St before 4:30, and then goes back $ to B1 to start another T721 or similar. These are the downsides of having such a small contract area. And 1331 is out today. Not as unusual as 1332 doing a 'GA3' this month though. And another obse...

Re: Virtual Transport observations

All stops to Bridgewater. I've uploaded this before. This relates to an attempt at creating a 3d NL232 CNG railbus.

Most 'enthusiasts' in SA hate them for some highly unjustifiable reason.

Re: [Sept/Oct 2020] SA transport observations

Many PT users are exploiting the discontinued sales of paper tickets. It will continue to be a problem indefinitely. I have observed a significant increase this year compared to last year as a passenger alone. Unless the departments brings the ticketing system from the 1980s back into the 2000s, the...

Re: Bustech and Cummins E bus collaboration

@Tonyp Are you for real in saying that there are interstate ones still have the window lines almost above the roof of the bus? That glass must surely be strong if it's on the outside. What I hate about them is the extreme discomfort, and the playground like interiors. I hope the other manufacturers ...

Re: What makes you happy today?

Port's good run finally crawling to an end last night thanks to dare I say it, Richmond. They made this year a little less condemnable.

Now I don't give a stuff who wins the flag, as the Crows are clearly not playing in the grand final.

Re: Bustech and Cummins E bus collaboration

In Australia, you only have to provide the body to win contracts. There are no requirements/thresholds whatsoever re quality and passenger comfort.

The Adelaide versions are shocking, and very primitive as well.

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

Drivers that decide to have a quick 'personal needs' break, after starting their next run without even putting the desto on display. And add some (very minor) speeding to make up time. Morphettville depot will certainly hear about this by next week. From personal experience, they seem to follow up o...

Re: The Random Admet Question Thread

Regarding Mile End, the infrastructure is intact and usable. Why let it rot away whilst being unused? The Overland is on borrowed time (when the border restrictions ease enough to enable it to be ran again). Even if there are just a tiny handful of commuters that use it, it is still not a waste of m...

Re: The Random Admet Question Thread

Oh well the next line that will be improved is Gawler which they are proposing more frequent and faster services. Noting the only way they work out faster for Gawler services is that the EMU's have a much faster acceleration (metres/second) that the Diesel Electrics. As for improved frequencies thi...

Re: [Sept/Oct 2020] SA transport observations

There are no signs of any 1000s or 1900s being relocated to Edinburgh North at the moment according to the Anytrip app. All look to be doing runs in the previous TT/'LCB' contract areas.
