Speaking of 2607 in Claisebrook, I have also seen standard-livery OC500s there on some mornings. Could they be there for the driver's tea break before starting his next shift on a Freo contract route from EQBS?

Correct. Used due to proximity to WACA and the (former!) Terrace Road terminus. Unsure if space constraints at EQ have anything to do with it, although that is a plausible third option.

The last bus using the 29xx numbering spots (2999) was sighted at Trucks Centre Kewdale today, alongside others between 2994-2998.
