Maybe it was due to a change-off?

Remains to be seen if it will return to service or not, however. Though given it has been over five months by now, my confidence is starting to wane a little.
So it looks like 2233 could be the first B7 written off. 😲

Sets 08/31 have the honours of being the last train from Armadale tonight and the last train to take passengers through Denny Ave in service, also this is such a Perth thing people are queuing on Streich Ave to take one last drive through the crossing which closes at 8PM

2759 swapped for 3028, which is now a Morley bus.
Currently working on my bus photography site where I'm aiming to photograph every Transperth bus in Perth - have (almost) everything!

Probably not, especially on weekends it's not uncommon for Shenton Park/Claremont shifts to venture onto Karrinyup runs from the busport.

I passed through Bunbury and Busselton yesterday, didn't get any photos, although I can confirm that 1585 is indeed still active in Bunbury. However, no unusual findings to report...

It seems that 1EFY451 has since been withdrawn and replaced by TP1753 after its nasty crash with TP1626.
