1800 Series: Mercedes-Benz 0405NH / OC500LE CNG


Here you’ll find my collection of images of 1800-series buses. This is a fairly interesting series, being the only one to have buses from all three operators (Transdev, Swan and Path), and consisting of three different bus models: Mercedes-Benz 0405NH, 0405NH CNG and OC500LE CNG models. They’re listed in descending order (ie. newest buses first), along with basic information such as photo location and date, bus age and depot. Expect this page to update frequently as I fill in the gaps and replace existing photos with higher quality ones!
