19 buses remaining till 1000 of the year ;D
Buses remaining that I have not yet caught this year - P2s, 104, 108, Darts, 304, 306, 308, 312, 319, 346, 381, 396, 418, 449, 456, 578, 617, 618, 466, 468, 470, 472, 477, 486, 489, 511, 512, 515, 519, 524, 526, 527, 529, 534, 535 and 622.
Won't get them all, but getting at least the P3s, 346 and 381 will satisfy me. I'll make getting them all a goal for next year.

already 26 bus rides into the year, off to a good start to prevent me from having to get the rest at the end of the year.
As for yesterday though:

926 (62N)
959 (4N)
150 (101E)
301 (7N)
924 (2S)
928 (313N) - finally got to see 622 with my own eyes, and for the drawing i plan to still do, the part of the bus that no one got a shot of on the press release day.

569 (164n) - to do the drawing
315 (80s)
365 (80n)
444 (300s)
meal break :P
375 (62n)
353 (300n) - to continue the drawing, but as I looked up when I was drawing to get something for it, I spotted 622 on its way, :popping: :popping: :popping: and I was like OMG, dropped everything (literally/accidentally), and ran!

147 (101)- no B1/B2 label (6:45pm)
554 (319S)
572 (67S)


It seemed there were possibly 3 darts operating the city loop, because 151 went past southbound on northbourne when I was on 148 waiting for the turn onto barry dr- 151 went ahead and turned right onto alinga which I presumed meant that 151 was operating as well with the contact from base to driver advising to avoid barry drive due to an accident and use marcus clarke (not rimmer)- although we used rimmer anyway.

965 (60N)
later during the day...

Originally I was to get the 23 from Woden CIT drop something off at Mawson shops, and get a 22 to Pearce Terminus, but instead, I rode and got there a few minutes ealier, which in turn worked out unexpectedly magnificent in the timing (as the 21 and 23 pass at the same time), as 623 came by as the 21.
So,
623 ;D (21W) - to do another not yet attempted birds eye termini drawing
444 (22N)
394 (5N) (Kingston Railway Drawing)
558 (200N)
600 (319S)
979 (163S)

Caught some of photos too - I'll share them soon. :D

Why her?
It would be interesting to go back and see what the initial possessive pronouns used for various bus models were, when they have been used. It may give some indication of initial impressions. Of course the MANs would probably have been referred to as a he, but what of the Scanias, Darts, Irises etc?


To keep on topic:



588 (67)
905 (4)
533 (S/R) just as we turned into Woden, 622 left on the 67 I almost made :( Yet to go on one yet

I think buses are just generally called 'shes', like ships, boats and trucks etc. There is a reason for it, I just can't remember.

not many for me *cough* yesterday *cough*

Why her?

Because why not? Not trying to spark an equality debate or the likes, but quite often you'll find that vehicles are referred to as female (the only exception I am aware of, generally, is as you said, MAN vehicles). If you want to know more, I suggest www.google.com.au.

Anyway, the buses I caught today...

488 (319)
115 (64)
956 (171)
150 (101)
561 (11A)
351 (11)
111 (7)
344 (14)
441 (14)
and
494*

* : The MAN SL200/CAC, that is.
