Quote from: triumph on February 26, 2023, 10:46:21 PMToday's Sunday Canberra Times under All Homes page 3 has an article headed 'This Rental near Tharwa comes with its own bus'. A Mack/Renault is illustrated. Appears complete but no plate and no fleet number discernable. The property is at Clear Range.(If there is a way to copy the image to the Forum, I am not computer savvy enough to do it.)
Quote from: Snorzac on June 15, 2023, 07:55:47 PMBuses have headed to Sydney for floor replacement previously as recent as last year, however I do not believe there is a current contract for this, 340 did however return from Sydney on the same truck.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on May 02, 2019, 10:26:32 PMOh don't worry, they are, I called this morning to make sure they were aware of the issue. Turns out the R1 is programmed into all the buses, or that's at least the impression I got from the obscurantistic driver who was driving 502 this evening, as he had it up again cause he wanted to have some fun before his last run. "Ding ding, I'm a tram" is the front display with a train icon on the back and on the side. The things drivers have to do to have fun now days...
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on April 18, 2020, 02:47:17 AMAlso now that I have a picture, I asked this before but got no answer, which buses did these white switches (some have buttons, same question) come from?
Quote from: Barry Drive on April 01, 2023, 01:40:42 PMBut: they will be getting 38 new buses to replace 37 Renaults. So in theory they may be able to afford to transfer two low floor buses to become permanent trainers (e.g 390 & 391). However, there's also the question of whether 693 is permanently withdrawn and needs to be replaced (or does Belconnen give up another bus to cover for it)?Edit: OK, maybe not MANs - they aren't old enough to be relegated to be trainers. Irisbuses would be preferable for now.
Quote from: triumph on January 24, 2023, 08:21:36 AMAccording to a news item in Canberra Times, there was a car/bus collision in Drakeford Dr at Hurtle Ave Bonython late yesterday afternoon. The accompanying photo shows the bus involved was 693.The item said the road would likely be closed for hours and 2 people treated with no severe injuries reported (yet). Images show a P plater was involved. The bus ended up on a lane through the median.
Quote from: triumph on September 20, 2023, 09:16:02 PMAlmost 9 months have elapsed so the future of 693 should have already been determined.
Quote from: Snorzac on September 20, 2023, 10:14:30 PM693 has left Tuggeranong depot and its whereabouts are unknown. The damage to it was extensive, given it was a rear end impact and the impact force shattered the windscreen it appears, you would expect there is a significant amount of damage which may not be visible to the naked eye
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on September 21, 2023, 06:08:25 PMCould 693 be a possiblity as to why the new bus deliveries are also being delay or is that a completely different can of worms?
Quote from: Snorzac on September 21, 2023, 10:48:36 PMWhen a car impacts anything at the speeds that car did, and I'm lead to believe it was well in excess of 100km/h (although this is gossip so may not be 100% accurate), damage will always be excessive, regardless of the standards complied with.
