Re: November/December 2020 SA Transport Observations

K230s 1403-1406 were originally numbered 1290-1293, until it was realised the rest of the K230s wouldn't fit into the 12xx range. There were also some 149x K230s, which got renumbered after being transferred to SouthLink.

Re: Scania/Custom Deliveries

I was riding an NL202 diesel recently, and one passenger remarked that the bus was old, and would probably break down at some point. Hell, one day about 6 years ago I was at TTP waiting for a 560, and some old woman complained that a "bloody old bus" (NL202) had shown up. Are those random people als...

The guy who did it is a Spanish national, and his visa expires in December, so he doesn't really have to worry too much about the coming "months/years to come".

Re: Scania/Custom Deliveries

You're right, 1046 to 1082 is 37. 1083 and 1084 are in service now too, so that makes it 39, and there's at least one more new unit currently sitting at Scania. The figure of 400 new buses was from the old contract that the Labor government signed, the newer contract signed by the Liberal government...

Re: Scania/Custom Deliveries

The contract also says that there'll be 29 rigids per year, and so far this year they're at 38 rigids. Maybe some of the artic orders were converted to rigids, or there's been a variance in how many buses get delivered each year. Either way, I think we'll be waiting a while for new artics.

Re: Scania/Custom Deliveries

It's possible that despite the contract featuring 50 artics, they may not necessarily be delivered on a yearly basis.

I ordered a Planetag at the end of August, got it last week. Luckily, mine didn't get sent back to the USA... Did you get one out of the first run of the Qantas 747-400 Series, Oscar-Juliet-November, aka "City of Dubbo"? That's the aircraft I got mine from - but there's a reason for my purchase.......

Re: Odd question - For the people that drive anything big and or old

I think replacing "big and or old" with "slow" might help to answer the question.

Re: bustech XDI

The XDi doesn't have Scania components, so it could be compared to a Scania with bodywork from Bustech or any other manufacturer.

They're brand new buses still under warranty, how much maintenance should they do? Full engine rebuild after every trip perhaps?
