  1. 19401 was in RTC this morning, with plates. Presumably being used for training today.
  2. Might as well. I think it's gone. Unless it was secretly saved and is now sitting in someone's driveway under a tarp so nobody will find out...
  3. Put it this way. When it was first spotted at BTC painted in the RapidBus test scheme, I assumed that the bus had initially been sent there for other reasons.
  4. The fact that 12024 was even running should be considered a special sighting...
  5. I was also told that part of the process takes place in Napannee, Indiana. (I had to clarify that wasn't Napanee, Ontario, hometown of Avril Lavigne. )
  6. It hasn't been standard practice for other CMBC bus deliveries, as most have been delivered by road under their own power, with the exception of the New Flyer trolleys which were delivered by flat deck truck. (I think that the old Flyer trolleys from the '80s were delivered by rail though.) One commonality though is that the ex-GO double deckers that were bought by Wilson's in Victoria were also shipped by rail from Ontario to BC.
  7. I didn't see it in the RTC retirement line.
  8. You mean they were supposed to enter service in October. Thus far, there is still only one on the property at RTC, and it hasn't been commissioned yet (no plates). Also, there has not even been so much as an announcement about vehicle characteristics training for operators, which was supposed to start in mid-September. Even once the buses start being commissioned, it is unlikely that they will enter service until that training has been completed. So it's probably going to be a while yet.
  9. Similarly, a right turn wire from southbound Main to westbound Hastings was installed in 2015 to allow for detouring of the 4 and 7 off Pender Street during the sewer upgrades.
  10. That is complete and utter bollocks. Or, as a member on this board from Quebec likes to say, oxdung.
  11. Even some drivers believe that urban myth...
  12. If you had been looking yesterday morning, you would have seen 18462 on a "403 TO STEVESTON & SHELL"...
