    • Uh ok.

      You know I would rather you guys spend the holidays learning about other things....amongst which there are countless!

      On the other hand, while interest in transport can generate knowledge and drive, why not take one step and find opportunities to find more useful ventures as outlets?

      I agree.

      I have told these youngsters to look into other hobbies as well, other than always wasting their times on just buses only all their times. There are a lot more things to know other than just buses and tranport.

      School holidays are very limited so should make full use of the time to do many other meaningful things other than just on buses and quarrel for no reasons on buses in forums. Get a life while you are young.

      SMB189A may get a cleanup once its advert is removed? Im not sure though.

      even when it had the advert it was always cleaner/shinier

      Well....there are stuff like transport economics, civil engineering....amongst other things to be pursued in this field.

      Dont need to give up entirely on the passion if you have the heart to change things.

    • 2 new regoless shiny Citaros parked at Service 3's parking lot again today in BNDEP. Spotted them while taking Sv 17 home. Sandwiched between 6335X 970B to their right, while 6317Z 914P were to the 2 new Citaros' left. 

      Think it's preparing for the next round of BSEP in early Jan. Typically a time frame of 2 weeks+ from me spotting the new Citaros in BNDEP before they are deployed out on service. Took this average time from the previous times I spotted 6305H (1st round), 6315D-6317Z (2nd round) and then the latest round of 6335X 6336T. Can go figure out when the next round of BSEP will likely be. smile.png

    • 6105T (HG TRG) did BC Training along Sv 358's East Loop again yesterday btw.

      No idea why they keep using the Citaros to train along Sv 358's East Loop lately...cause AFAIK, the perception of overhangs of KUBs & Citaros do differ slightly from the BC cabin. Seems abit weird to train BCs for Sv 358 using Citaros when the fleet is majority-KUB.

      Should be continued from 6341C, cause I'm certain that those skipped regos like 6169J, 6177K 6236Z will be registered under non-BSEP.

      What I said is not related to 6329P,  and talking to a plain-stupid guy is just wasting my time, but I still feel like doing it.

      Plus 6329P does not have any wab poster in it..

    • If SBST order up till 1100 Citaros, I guess SBST fleet soon would be Citaro, KUB and minority Volvo(CNG n SC)~

      Volvo won't be a minority with the B9TLs. Guess its relatively 1/3 Merc 1/3 Scania 1/3 Volvo

      Is this seriously true? LOL. They haven't even plugged the gap from 6282 to 6284 & 6286 to 6299. Then they want to reg under 66xx series?

      I hope they do plug the gap for the 62xx series soon. BNDEP & AMDEP needs more Citaro SPs for those Citaro-laden services, putting SP KUBs will do too but I observed that it tends to screw up the freq on certain services with super-tight freq. 

      Can't help thinking how long AMDEP wants to put 6205M as SP after so many months. That bus is like, an outcast. tongue.png
