    Collisions and Incidents thread

    18455 was involved in what was likely a solo MVA at Bridgeport on Monday morning. I've seen pictures showing damage to the right side body panels and broken windows.

    16212 is also a Richmond bus now, as is 16219.

    Knowing our luck, it'll be the last one to go. 😂

    New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    7440 has been outfitted with the double decker height testing equipment that was used on 7190 last year.

    3286 was being towed southbound on Highway 99 just out of the tunnel around 12:30 today.

    7312 was towed out of RTC yesterday morning. That's the only 1999 D40LF I ever drove.

    For reasons unknown to me, a number of retired D40LFs, some of which have been out of service for ages, have reappeared in RTC. Some numbers include 7251, 7257, 7261, 3286, and 7326. There are at least two others, I'll try to get numbers later today. EDIT: the two others are 7225 and 7341. Also on the retirement line I spotted 7296 and 7305, both of which were still in service within the past few days.

    I don't suppose anybody has seen 9223 recently? I haven't seen it mentioned in this thread, but T-Comm shows it last being active on January 15th, and I have not seen it anywhere at RTC lately. Perhaps that one got away without anybody noticing? (It definitely wasn't the greatest bus.)

    I saw that one in the shop last night.

    I drove 8038 a few weeks ago and it wasn't anywhere near as bad as it was last year. But not 8082. Good God, that one is s l o o o o o o w.

    Vancouver general sightings and notes

    I think that 9272 has been a repeat offender for transmission problems. I remember one night in the fall, coming out of Tsawwassen on a 601, the bus downshifted so hard that I thought we had been rear-ended. It did the same thing again on Ladner Trunk road just after making the turn off Arthur Drive. Then, after leaving Ladner Exchange, it wouldn't shift out of first gear going up Harvest Drive! From what I was told later, it wasn't the first time this had happened, and then another driver reported the same thing a week or two later.

    I've been told that the 1996/1998 D40LFs that have been recently retired from the training department are being replaced with other recently retired D40LFs (read: 7400s). I don't have any numbers though, nor have I seen this for myself.
