Information Regarding Site Future

Hi Everyone,
As most have clearly noticed, this blog is pretty much dead. Unfortunately I don't have as much time to run my Facebook page, Instagram as well as doing the other things nowadays.
What does this mean for this site?

Well, the site will continue to run, but the majority of the activity will be through OMSI downloads, under the OMSI 2 Tab on the menu

Will anything else happen in regards to posting?

Not that I have planned, No. This site might see a few things here and there, but not like it used to.

This isn't an official ending of the site; just an explained hibernation of most parts.

Thanks for your understanding!

Bus Spotting In Wellington Region: Friday 27th July

I've wanted to get some pictures of the wellington bus scene after contract change for a while now, and according to the weather people, friday is the best day to do so.

Also wanted to ride a Double Decker bus as well :)

The beginning of the end for Snapper on the Airport Flyer?

This is most likely the beginning of the end for Snapper.

I received an email from Snapper (Twice actually) with the subject "Changes here, there and everywhere"

I read the email and saw the usual gibberish. Bus route changes. Fares going up etc etc.

Then I got to a section and had to pause for a second...

Friday the 13th of July 2018 - Into the windy capital I go...

With camera in hand, I'll be riding as many buses as I can, before contracts change.

I Haven't actually ridden any GO Wellington bus from memory. Combine that with no knowledge of the routes, this day will be interesting. A lot of planning will be required just so I can get back to the damn train station!

This will most likely be the last time I'll be able to ride a MAN 11.190 (Unless I head to Auckland, even then it's not guaranteed I'll find one). Whilst I had planned for my trip to Upper Hutt to be the last time to ride one of those troopers, I still miss seeing them around, with musical ZF gearboxes and loud engines, wearing purple and orange...

I'll have to admit, being a Nui boy born and bred, I never really appreciated GO Wellington, as they never served any lines I took, so that's why I can appear to hold VF to a higher tier than GW (Everyone ought to know what the acronyms are right?)

With that said, I'll be looking forward to the experience!
