Title: Which Terminus #30 - Expires 6th April 2018
Post by: Sylvan Loves Buses on March 19, 2018, 05:38:02 PM
How good are you at identifying bus terminii and interchanges of Canberra from the skies?

Get it right and you get to contribute to my monthly bus drawing collection.

The link to view the development shots of the previous round will be provided soon after this round commences.

What does this one look like?

This time we have STA's steertag with a questionable bike rack attached, a Bustech TBX, passed on the other side by a double decker Bustech CDi which is gonna have a hard time getting under the 4.5m clearance of the Chandler Street bridge with 967 breaking down as it passes by (sorry KoB :'()
and yes, it is snowing somehow too.

That's not a Steer Tag. STA only have one Steer Tag bus, which is numbered 2108, and it doesn't have the Ansair Orana bodywork that the one pictured seemingly does (let me guess, that's poor old 3419 again, Skitube?) The one shown would is just a 14.5m bus. Or, in STA terms, a "long bus."

The Bustech CDi is 4.3m tall. It'll be fine... just.

So the STA 'long bus' with two sets of wheels at the rear is not a steertag? oh well my bad - I'll fix that up on the detailed lists very soon.

Only if it isn't 2108ST, the Scania K310UB with Volgren CR228L bodywork which is a Steer Tag vehicle. All the other 14.5m buses with STA have fixed rear wheels which do not to steer. 2108 was the demonstrator bus that visited Canberra in Metrobus livery prior to our Steer Tag buses being delivered.
