  5. Today's Sightings

    An air-conditioned 31-00X 747 runner was on the 165 this morning. Since it was laying over far away I couldn't see the number, it could be 31-007 Was aboard 37-069 this morning, the A/C grid panel on the roof is wide open.

  7. Today's Sightings

    So far I only see it on St. Denis buses and does it ever look ugly! So 22-251 is back at Stinson or is it being loaned back to them? -- 23-203 was on the 41. Stinson's 33-810 was on the 139. 22-316 and Legendre's 22-202 were on the 141. 22-417 was on the 432 mid day. 22-218 was doing a school run at Vendome. Since this is a Stinson bus was this the 124E? 105 non accessible runs are also hybrids. 26-027 and 26-072 were on the 24. Stinson or St. Denis 22-248 was on the 460 run 21. White drivers vent. 22-290 was on the 72. Is this a LaSalle or still a Stinson bus? Speaking of Stinson anyone know where 22-301, 302, 304 and 22-401 to 405 ended up?

  9. Southland Transportation

    I believe I saw that one too yesterday on my way to my band festival at the U of C. I saw a Vision with the first numbers '74' but I couldn't see the rest due to the fact the bus we were in had ridiculously dirty windows. (That is why my photo of 7391 I posted yesterday looked so crappy) I also shall mention yesterday I spotted many BlueBird Visions parked at McMahon Stadium but this time they were parked at the parking lot on Crowchild Trail, and I saw 0 buses parked at the parking lot on University Dr. NW. I remember back in 2016 sometime 2626 and a few other IC CEs parked at a parking lot just as the exit ramp from Crowchild Trail to the Trans Canada Highway starts.
  10. Cars

    Oh okay, I see. You'd have to be AWD capable obviously...that's a given though. I was joking about the odyssey lol. Its a cool car, but I'd never ever get a minivan. I'm more of a wagon person. E63, RS6, Sport Tourismo etc etc. Understated and quick. Also space for a roof rack to hold my bike. I've only seen 2 Accord wagons around my area; super rare things. Pretty neat. WRX STi hatchback for me. Modern autos are too good on fuel econ. The days of manuals being better on fuel are unfortunately gone. One can come close, but Porsche's PDK, ZFs world-standard 8HP, they're just better unfortunately. Personally I'll stick with manual in as many cars as I can (save the quick wagons). I like shifting my own gears. Which is why I tip my hat to @9924 for getting the R with the right tranny. (admittedly on a blindfolded order, but I assume you knew what you were getting)
  11. First Student Canada

    207396 does regular routes where I usually take my photos! The driver of that bus shuffles buses quite often, and it happened in this scenario 207396 isn't that driver's normal bus. It's always IC REs that he is switching into. 204085 was in that Corbeil 3800 that I mentioned on Tuesday and 155108 is subbing for 150382, a 2012 BlueBird Vision. EDIT: I forgot to mention 204085 used to be in Corbeil E-350 Cutaway #985 before the winter break.

    Here are a few Metrorail fleet updates: -Around 500 new 7000 Series Cars have now been delivered. -Cars 4000-4001 will also be preserved alongside 1000-1001. -All 1000 Series cars have been sent to the scrapyard, apart from the 2 being preserved and the 6 used on the money train. Only a few 4000s remain on property, and apart from the pair mentioned above, they too will all be scrapped in Baltimore. -I saw a document indicating that Metro is planning to retire the six 1000 Series cars (8000-8005) used for revenue collection in the near future. I do not believe 6182-6183 have entered into money train service yet. I haven't heard about any other cars being converted, so I'm not sure how revenue collection will be impacted when 8000-8005 are retired and scrapped. -Finally, although none have been sent to the scrapyard yet, Metro claims that around half of the 5000 Series cars are no longer in service (meaning they are probably stored). All cars of this series will be retired by the end of 2019, and while most will be scrapped, I suspect they'll keep 5000-5001. As far as Metrobus goes, no significant changes have been made to the fleet. New Flyer looks like its on track to miss it's latest delivery date for the 2017 XN40s. Most of the LFA buses have now been rehabbed and repainted, and many of the 2000 Orion Vs are continuing to soldier on. Metro has also been installing "knight rider" lights on a significant number of buses. These were common on older buses in the fleet like Orion Vs and C40LFs, but were not originally included on more recent buses like Xcelciors. Here's an example of one on XN40 2841 (located right above the destination sign):

    I see that stare several times a week lol . I'll have to remember the elastic band trick but now our shop rags come in bags so I'll have to find a different source for elastic bands.
  14. Today's Sightings

    Though long, I don't think the 51 would be a bad route to drive. The timetables are quite well made, so buses are generally on time even during rush hour and the layovers are long, unlike many other routes where drivers lose their layovers due to delays. The 144 was majority second gens yesterday morning too (including an accessibility violation)! SD certainly sent out a lot of them. - I took 22-252 on the 144 yesterday morning. It was covered in pink strike stickers. 23-212 was on the 66 or 166 with stickers as well. LS 28-708 was doing 90-17 (Stinson extra) this morning. LS 26-007 was on the 124E this morning. I took LS 24-297 on the 144 around 9:15 (accessibility violation). 22-251 was on the 124 around 18:40.
  15. First Student Canada

    207396! That's the unit in my profile picture! Also, 155108 was transferred from Saskatchewan to Calgary in August 2015 as "C257" before being renumbered to its current number.

  19. It can exonerate as much as it can condemn. Union selectively forgets that. -my two cents.
  20. 2018 Arbocs

    I'll add my couple photos of 1200 from a couple days ago. Taken at North Pointe as it was finishing up the Route 420 and then out of service on its way out to 69th Street West Station.
  21. Today's Special Sightings

    There’s been some.
  22. Greyhound in the news

    Well it depends on if they cut the service down to the 2 trips in each direction before then which they can do if they want, however I wouldnt count my chickens just yet...we may see the BC Govt come up with some kinda solution...as they couldnt really do anything until after PTB had ruled on their decision!

  24. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    Yes, Lex also told me 7730 was there, so it probably was 7730. Also, how far did you zoom in? Lol. Mine has a 50x.
  25. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    Looks more like 7730 or 7736 to me.

  27. First Student Canada

    Here is 207396, a 2006 IC RE300 with the DT466E motor inside. https://www.flickr.com/photos/technologyspotlight/39719234604/in/dateposted/. The CA DOT number is still visible underneath the lettering! 204085, a 2005-2007 IC CE200 with a wheelchair lift that is visible through the second and third passenger windows. https://www.flickr.com/photos/technologyspotlight/39533956185/in/dateposted/ And 155108, a 2005-2007 IC CE200. Based on the '15' at the start of the unit number and newer First Student lettering, I have to assume this bus was transferred. https://www.flickr.com/photos/technologyspotlight/39719234254/in/dateposted/
