Progress Summary!

So as many may know, my overall goal here is to get an image of every bus in Perth. Of course it won’t be easy (perhaps impossible as they’re constantly being retired, and new ones are being delivered, so I won’t be able to get ‘all’ of them), but here I’ll keep a summary of how I’m going! Although the library is set out by registration and model number, here I’m sorting by just registration since it breaks the list up into lots of 100 and makes it simpler to track. (Note that some of the buses listed here don’t have pages yet)

Where possible I’ll make a note of which ones are no longer in Perth. An up/down arrow next to the ‘Number in Perth’ line shows that buses are currently being added or removed so this number may be inaccurate as it changes frequently.
