Probably a new cut of shifts

1743 has been in service at Mandurah recently, 1744 not sighted in service but in yard.
Also seems to have been some temporary movements locally with several Mandurah NHs on Rockingham services.

I Couldn't make the NH tour so can someone please post some pics and maybe run down of what the day was like?

Thanks

TP3067 was seen doing the 7:20AM 206 trip to Cannington Station. Was empty from what I've seen when i get on it at Thornlie but i do have videos of it.
The one who catches the Perth Stadium bus like an illegal immigrant by only to gunzel for buses & trains and/or to go anywhere else.

TP3085 always operates the first 654 trip to Perth Stadium.

1655 seen on Tuesday, not refurbed. I've a feeling that seeing as this was a later delivery to replace 1610, it may not get refurbished until a bit later down the line. I believe this will be the same for the remaining Gosnells units (1435-1439 and 2013-2018).

1524, 1525, 1528 and 1529 all look to have been withdrawn too.

I agree, I saw 1655 on Monday proudly wearing its old livery too. For now they're focusing on the Rockingham units with 1946-1948 and possibly 1949 all away right now. Pretty sure Rockingham has all of the 2007 OCs that are yet to be refurbed, the 1940s-1962 and the four RCCTS buses

is any people know where is 2355-2356, 2358 at. is it at welshpool or kalamunda because i saw them today doing 3x and 75 at city

not only that but 2323 was also move from bayswater either to malaga or welshpool. Saw it doing 960 at 3pm around Kent ST

that would mean bayswater has lost 2323, 2355-2356, 2358

2323 is still at Bayswater - every Path depot does 960 running (I think Kalamunda has the least amount of trips), while 2355, 56 and 58 have made the move up to Kalamunda to replace some NH's.

Cheers! :wink:
Officially the last person to tag off the 381 - 20/5/16.
Second last person to tag off the last timetabled 16 - 23/08/19.
Last person to tag off a Transdev Joondalup service - 19/1/20.

2323 has actually been transferred back to Malaga.

2355/6/8 are at Kalamunda, to give them a straight run of buses. I believe 2357-2362 have also gone back up the hill too.

1945 seen out last weekend and 1935-1937 also seem to have turned up at Rockingham

So close! I've been told that 1934, 35 and 37 are at Rocko to cover the buses that are away for refurb, 1936 is still at Freo :P

1945 has been back from refurb for three weeks now, I haven't seen it but would say 46 is back by now as well

Thanks squiddy. I definatly saw 1936 the other day but it was on a 548 so it was probably just borrowed for the day.

Anyone know how long it takes to do a refurb and what’s involved. They seem to knock them out very quickly

They give it a new paint job (moving the green stripe up and adding the white fleet numbers thats the current trend), reupholster the seats, repaint the floor, upgrade the front destination screen, and fix up any other interior issues. They don't do any mechanical works as far as I know, nor do I know how long it really takes. Few weeks?

No mechanical work is done during refurb. All mechanical work is done in house at the depot. Takes about 2-3 weeks from memory.

Here's a freshly refurbed 1363, taken on Tuesday afternoon while it was running a 31 Tango:

Herbie, feel free to chuck this one up on the fleetlists if you come across it.

1744 was seen on route 114 the other day, and at Fremantle on a 148 this evening.
http://perthbus.info/report.php?vid=TP1744# says it's been decommissioned, but it is definitely still out there carrying passengers around...
