Can’t claim credit for the pics, other than for having friends who are more difficult to evacuate than Mordd, and for overruling the photographer’s opinion they were to dark and blurry to share.

Good job, secret photographer!

No but you could have the overhead wiring come down, with the same basic effect. Of course light rail cannot go everywhere a bus can go either, so not sure what your point is really.

Its what we call humour Mr Spock.

Saw bus 338 being towed past Southlands last night, with a fire truck following closely behind.

Tried to snap some pictures but got evacuated from the interchange so didn’t get a chance. Strong smell of gas in the area. Rear of the bus where the engine compartment is was all blackened and appeared it had caught fire. Buses were all queued up in the adjacent car park instead.
