Click for a larger picture RH62953, no.29 in the SOT fleet, is a Volvo B10BLE with Säffle body. The bus bays at Sandnes bus station have a depression where the front wheels of the bus should stop. This of course, is to lower the bus entrance in order to make boarding easier. This is not now necessary with the newest low floor buses, something which is apparent in this picture. The lowest part of the depression is where you see the drain, but the bus has stopped well short of this and the entrance is still almost at kerb level. On leaving the bays the buses must make a sharp turn to the left, just as the rear wheels are in the depression, causing many buses to ground the rear overhang.

DJ19032 is a Mercedes O 405 N, no.244 in the NSB fleet. Seen about to depart Sandnes bus station on the service to Stavanger via Kvadrat, which is Norway's largest shopping-centre. Click for a larger picture

Click for a larger picture SR82995 is a Volvo B10L with busbody by Arna Busser AS, built at their now closed down factory at Indre Arna, near Bergen in the west of Norway. No. 277 in the NSB fleet, it is en route to Bryne, the main town in Jæren, the major agricultural area to the south of Stavanger.
