Quote from: ACTbusspotter on November 27, 2013, 07:56:41 PMThere used to be a SECTION peg (which used a red band and lettering instead of black) which I think was from the same era. Sections were abolished mid-70s which might be when the hand painted signs were updated to have a reflective SIGNAL BUS metal sheet.There was also a serif-font hand painted SIGNAL BUS (possibly a stencil), but I don't know which one was older.
Quote from: 743 on November 27, 2013, 07:26:20 PMThe last (?) handpainted black and yellow peg which was in Ainslie has been removed. Does anyone know how old that style of peg was? Would be interesting to know how long it lasted! I note that style of peg in old shots on ACT Bus and RATEC so I suspect quite a while.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on December 20, 2013, 12:55:42 PMThe pair of orange and black blades on Lathlain St (beside Bunnings Warehouse), from the former route 73/74, were removed this week.Does this herald the removal of all remaining disused bus stops?
Quote from: 743 on December 14, 2013, 11:26:35 AMI'm aware of the following disused pegs remaining: Wakefield Ave near Dooring St, Dickson or Braddon (black and yellow but I can't remember which side of the road it's on)

Quote from: ACTbusspotter on January 08, 2014, 12:02:38 PMThing is: nothing departs from Tugg #6 and hasn't for many years, yet it has a sign. But Woden #8 doesn't (at least I don't think it does), even though it was in use a few years ago.
Quote from: smitho on January 08, 2014, 09:56:55 PMNoticed some older style blue / white blade signs in vicinity of Kippax Centre while doing a 318 today.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on September 27, 2014, 12:02:28 AMNoticed recently that a signal bus peg has survived on Redfern Street.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on September 27, 2014, 04:38:03 PMYeah I believe so. On the Cook side of the road.
Quote from: 743 on September 27, 2014, 05:38:36 PMI'd suspect the one out at the Cotter Dam is still there, too!
Quote from: ... on September 30, 2014, 06:51:27 PMI noticed 2 stops with the pre-NXTBUS yellow/black bus stop blades along Sidney Nolan St at the Lanyon marketplace. They are the only ones I've seen since the replacement with the new stops with stop #s. Those stops don't show up on NXTBUS, so I'm assuming no services including school buses have been using that street for a while. When was this stop last serviced and by what service?
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on September 30, 2014, 09:31:03 PMThe old white sign on Moyes Cr may disappear soon - that is stop #4895 which is now back in use on 343 to Fraser.
Quote from: King of Buses on October 01, 2014, 09:24:06 PMTwo stops with old blades on Streeton Dr after Heysen (southbound)...I think they may be temporary stops until the proper ones with shelters on the other side of Heysen are done...
Quote from: smitho on October 10, 2014, 11:13:56 PMThe village of Hall is another place where pre-NXTBUS signage is likely to have survided; will try and confirm this.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on November 25, 2013, 10:24:34 AMAlso Noarlunga Cres in Bonython had unused stops, but not sure if these were pegs or blades/fingerboards.
Quote from: Busnerd on January 05, 2015, 02:56:34 AMMy old school bus used to go down there and I do recall both pegs and some yellow NOARLUNGA CR, SCHOOL SERVICES ONLY finger boards.
Quote from: King of Buses on January 10, 2015, 06:04:32 PMClianthus St still had its old blades too...I imagine the end of scrivener not serviced by 1/937/936 still has them too from the old 35 days...dryandra st probably has some too at the yha.
Quote from: Bus 503 on July 19, 2015, 08:23:43 AMSomeone at St Andrews Groom street Hughes has an old yellow bus stop peg. I've always wondered how it got there...
Quote from: Bus 400 on July 19, 2015, 09:43:21 AMThat is for the residents with dementia, apparently dementia patients remember some things, such as catching a bus as a child, & are attracted to those things. The nursing home near Cooleman Court also has one. This is a reason why some lost, old people are found on the buses after Police Operations put a call out to ACTION.
Quote from: Bus 400 on July 19, 2015, 09:43:21 AMI'm not sure how the next lot of old people will go, they'll be texting the stop number & "Stop Not Found" will come back on their iglasses.
Quote from: Barry Drive on January 08, 2014, 12:02:38 PMThing is: nothing departs from Tugg #6 and hasn't for many years, yet it has a sign. But Woden #8 doesn't (at least I don't think it does), even though it was in use a few years ago.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on August 18, 2015, 07:00:27 PMPossibly used for set down for selected services?
Quote from: Bus 503 on December 10, 2015, 03:07:23 PMDid stops with that thing which clips on to the blade once have a fingerboard in place of the NXTBUS blade?
