Quote from: ACTbusspotter on July 11, 2012, 10:08:59 pmAnother false alarm? 726 is parked at the back of B depot workshops - ticket equipment removed, but Motorola still installed.
Quote from: smitho on September 25, 2012, 12:18:50 pm724 despatched from Tuggy Depot under tow at around 1030am today, apparently headed for Belco Depot. This bus has some issues.Meanwhile @ Woden Depot, 720 was stripped of ACTION logos, bus numbers etc towards the end of last week.
Quote from: King of Buses on September 26, 2012, 01:40:41 pmBut I hope they don't withdraw 725 or 719. they're are both really good in my opinion.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on September 26, 2012, 01:55:37 pmYes, 724 was doing a 788 when it broke down. Was at Belconnen Depot last night - ticket equipment had been removed, so it might be the next candidate for withdrawal/scrapping.They will ALL be withdrawn in the next 12 months or sooner anyway.

Quote from: ACTbusspotter on October 03, 2012, 10:17:18 pmSafe to say that 724 won't be re-entering service. In which case it will most likely be stripped for parts. So far it hasn't moved from where it was towed to last week.

Quote from: perthbus on October 07, 2012, 06:02:39 pmCan you guys please keep us updated with the arctic withdrawals as the company I work for is looking to source some....ADAMS in WA, we already have a sizeable fleet of ex Action Reno rigids which are all impressive units far superior than ex Transperth stuff.
Quote from: Bus 400 on October 08, 2012, 11:27:25 amBut when it comes to selling them to someone like Adams. You would get more bang for your buck by making a 1 good bus out of 2 bad buses. Rather then just scrapping 2 buses.
Quote from: Bus 400 on October 07, 2012, 08:30:38 pmBecause they can.
Quote from: perthbus on November 11, 2012, 06:40:20 pmThink you'll find these 2 mentioned (704 and 705) suffered major component failure.
Quote from: smitho on November 28, 2012, 09:18:55 pmEx-Belco 988 was receiving heaps of tender loving care from detailers at Tuggy Depot today - a major job to get it up to an acceptable standard apparently.
