Another sign of old bus stops are like the below from McIntyre St, Narrabundah. Most of these probably date back to pre-1970's.

Some of these might have a wooden peg, most are left just like this one & even more overgrown.

Yep, got it.

Since I want to see an AEC Reliance or two drawn, the answer is Hackett.

iPlay are opening there.

Takes me back to the days where the Hyperdome had an “arcade”. There was a very small one in the shop that used to be between Kmart and Coles, which I think relocated into Hoyts at one point (or the other way around).

Going back a little further, there was one where St George is now.

Noticed several 'not in service' buses with the rear route number window, previously left blank in this situation, now showing a bus outline instead.

How many supermarket customers check specials validity on the shelf card? Only a miniscule percentage I suggest (excepting those intending to come back next day or later to make the pruchase). It is a question of expectation. If the special is displayed at the shelf, then that's what you get. If you don't, then refund or often free is what you get when queried at the enquiry counter. Quite different with on-line promos where the period of availability is important for forward planning. It is all a question of ordinary user expectations.

Funnily enough, the theoretical example I quoted of checking the return time, actually occurred for real today at Charnwood. A woman followed me off the bus, crossed the road and looked at the timetable and made notes. I also needed to cross the road and approached her and asked if she was planning her return. Yes she was and she had no idea the timetable was the new one not yet in use. "It looked old" was her comment. True, the panel material in front of the timetable was faded a bit.

Which is worse - new timetables or out of date timetables? (Or none at all)

Definitely out of date ones, though it may as well be none at all considering how few bus stops I use and have seen around Canberra actually have them.
