319 sighted this afternoon in Menulog AOA (Saw 319's Amart AOA in the distance yesterday afternoon - and fleetwiki says it was removed yesterday, so that matches up)

Route 6 uses a 2 line desto on PR2s (at least for northbound - as I recall the 182 was 2 lined for southbound and 1 line for northbound in the last network)
Not deliberately. A few PR100.2s had the wrong desto file loaded, 927 being one.

Also a glaring change that I couldn't quite place yesterday - they have gone back from the scrolling via points to just changing between them.

Not sure if this is the right thread for this whole discussion though
