  1. Yes Indeed there is a 705 now. Taken in March of this year in Banff, AB.
  2. If these ZF transmissions were actually a problem that had a huge negative impact on costs, fleet maintenance or daily operations, then why would Calgary Transit place an order of 150 Xcelsiors with them after having 100 Nova Bus with a ZF transmission that entered service from 2010 to 2012? The point is that what you hear from drivers is not always the facts. In many cases it's a matter of opinion. Are you aware how many buses worldwide use ZF transmissions and on how many continents they have a market in? Yes they shift differently, so to some drivers that makes them a problem because they aren't as smooth as an Allison that we have been accustomed to in Calgary. I would suggest thinking a bit more about what is a driver's opinion vs. what is actually true. Don't believe everything you hear.
  3. 1626 from a few days ago, sporting the black rear fleet numbers too of course. Taken in Evanston.

  8. Was fortunate to get some really awesome shooting conditions this morning with some fresh overnight snow, but a clear blue morning sky in Canmore. Some Route 5 Pictures here. But what was a bit more interesting in the day was what was at the garage in Banff. If you look at the attached photo, the Nova in the middle has been spotted before in service. However, I think the one on the left and the one on the right (without livery) are certainly not known. So 3 new diesel Nova LFS. This brings the LFS fleet total currently to 8 (3 2008 HEV units, 2 2012 Diesel units and now 3 2016-17 Diesel units).

  13. Funny enough to mention, 1634 came back out a couple hours later to changeoff an Arboc on the Route 174 Tuscany and stayed out till the end of service according to Transit 55.
  14. #2745 and #3510 attached here. Mondays and Fridays are free service in January 2017. Rode from Okotoks to Somerset/Bridlewood and back. Fairly efficient service! Other than being ex-Diversified, really not too sure what the origins of these coaches are. #3510 is from the states somewhere as the thermostat temp was set at 74 degrees Fahrenheit and the washroom had a sign stating "no smoking by the order of the DOT".

  16. Here are some photos of the Vicinity buses. http://www.kevinsbusrail.com/calgary_transit_vicinity-2016.html
  17. Rode 1625 on the 422 today, this bus does not have that new wheelchair attachment device installed. So it still has 4 side facing seats between the front and rear doors as opposed to just 3. So 24 passenger seats in that bus.
  18. 7837 and 7853 are refurbed and back on the road. Spotted them leaving SG this afternoon.

  23. That particular Route 8 was implemented when Dalhousie opened in December 2003. Whenever the Route 10 got extended to Home Road beyond Dalhousie is when the 8 above was cancelled. The below photo of a 2001 Ford E450/Goshen GC-II was taken June 2014 as a Route 8 at Dalhousie. I want to say that the 10 Home Road came into effect shortly after this.
  24. Not confirmed, but rumors are electrical issues. Maybe other items too? Anyways here are some photos taken last Thursday of the demo loaner bus aka the temporary #3717.
  25. Yup that's the same one we have been seeing this past week. The temporary #3717. I will post a photo tomorrow.
