Never thought I'd see this, must've been a mistake (there were no events on that day to require artics). Don't remember when this was taken though.


These are all yesterday (28th February)

539 and 588 at Woden


639


The rear of 525


621 and 525 together


621 front and back




And Fisher Terminus from 7th Feb

Not unusual to see them on weekends since the bike racks were installed on the artics, especially on the 300s. On a related note they still haven't updated bike rack availability for the artics on nxtbus.

I heard that the reason some artics are out on the weekend is that because there are so many buses ‘piled’ up on the bricks and there are not many other buses available (since they don’t run pr2s and 3s - and sometimes the blue buses on the weekends).   Hence the artics.

Photos at Woden on the 28th....hmm. I think I saw you.  Were you the guy in the crimson/reddish suit strolling around Woden interchange around 6ish on Wednesday?

Bright pink suit, yes.
<-- same style as the one in that photo


That's three bus enthusiasts in the same vicinity at the same time without any of them knowing of the other's presence, lol.

Gathered a few of my other recent photos together. I'll have to check my log book for the dates (I'll do it another time), cause my camera was just marking these down as January 1979 at least till I set the real date and time a few days ago - good one ::).

Anywho, sometime ago I took these photos of a bus stop that isn't in use anymore, yet still has noughties signs that haven't been removed. Passed by these by chance on my way to Dickson on a day I was gathering some terminus drawings.

Wakefield Ave near and far.





and, 946 exiting Tuggeranong Depot.

From yesterday outside the fence of T depot.

Here we go with 711 - looks really strange without the stickers on it. Doesn't even have its numbers.


and a wide shot with 119


607 passing by




467


Another incident today on Adelaide avenue.
Anyone know the bus involved

Nope, but I think I may know now.


Didn't see any signs of 652, and the workshop was wide open, so my guess is that it's probably at Belconnen.

I'm surprised the new delivery is painted in TC colours, I would've assumed they'd be plain white underneath and just have the decals added to it.

Anyone know if these are  staying on in the fleet once the trial is done or will go back to (BYD?)

I was also surprised when I saw it, although the other is like that too with light blue on top of the tank.

Need a shot of 422 with its AOA? Well if so, here you go.
Sorry about the bush though, couldn't get a better angle.



One thing for sure, this vantage point on the alternative backway entry to officework's carpark is one great way of getting some roof shots of the buses - but would have to get real lucky to get the unusual buses.
