Perth visit - 4-8 June 2015
« on: May 25, 2015, 12:09:38 PM »
Will be off to the land of narrow gauge done right next week for some mainly bus related stuff. 

Planning to go up to look at Butler and the 950, and possibly some other things when I'm not on the tours which I'm going for.

Coming to you live from bus no. 2334 on the Gt Eastern Hwy.  $4.40 airport to the city on the no. 40.  (Forgot my Smartrider until I landed, as usual, so this is the paper price.)

Was hovering around Bull Creek at around 4pm yesterday.  Easily as many passengers making bus/bus and bus/train transfers as there would be passing through the Cultural Centre in the height of peak at 5pm. 

Perth Underground has serious capacity constraints already because of the limited width of the platforms and the limited number of stairs/escalators. 

Trains all around the system absolutely chockers due to the Dockers/Richmond game at Subiaco.  3-door artics used to ship people in from places off the rail network (eg Curtin Uni), with all-door boarding and alighting in use.

Quite a considerable effort on updating station signage and branding too since my last trip in 2013 - even then it was top notch.

Graham needs to be shipped in to see just how wrong he is about everything.
