ANOTHER BUS FIRE NEAR PERTH


Another ex- MTT Bus up in smoke..............

A bus driver has escaped injury after his vehicle caught on fire on Roe Highway in the Perth suburb of Midvale.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services was called shortly before 2:00pm today, by someone who saw the Buswest coach ablaze.

Two units attended to extinguish the fire, which quickly took hold.

Traffic on Roe Highway was banked up and heavy smoke affected visibility in the area.

Nobody was injured in the incident.

A spokeswoman for Buswest told the ABC the company had no comment.

You ever been to Canaveral when they launch.
We were there for two of them.(Visiting family) You can watch from the mainland.

You just couldn't believe the smoke and steam? they generate.
Nor how big the buggars are as they trundle along on those trolleys at 1 1\2 mph.
Specially when you on a tour inside facility. (not when launch Loaded.)


Those buses.
Lotsa vibrations over lotsa yrs.
Wiring, fual lines etc gets brittle. (fatigue)
It's a wonder more don't do it.

At least with the converted ones. The wiring has been checked??.
and liveaboard conversions all relatively newish, compared to age of busses.

I've been looking at a little merc (19/21 seater?) with only 174k on clock.
rebuilt. head. exch Inj/Pump Lines etc. exch Transm (Auto), and brakes.
Asking $20k got him down to $18k without too much arguement.
Make a great fishing camper and capable of towing my 5.25 bow rider.

Anybody here know much about them?? Either way.

No such luck Macka. By coincidence I had seen a TV news report on the recent Canaveral launch failure just before I read this post, so I couldn't resist. Movies of the launches at the Cape are always mind blowing. One day maybe...
