  1. Wonderland reopened in early July, so chances are those plans were communicated to York Region well ahead of time, giving them enough time to close up the Wonderland drive-thru site in mid-June. Someone on another forum reported two of the Wonderland units, 210 and 217, popped up at another vaccination site in Vaughan.
  2. It’s “Retired from regular service”, which would be a more accurate description of 2252’s status. That’s usually what people mean when they say a vehicle or fleet is retired, especially in a transit context where an active vehicle can get sent out for service to haul passengers at any time. Chances are, 2252 won’t be putting in any appearances on the 19 (6) Bay or 90 Vaughan to handle rush-hour crowds like it used to. It’s all semantics anyway. Similar to the H4’s which were all “retired” (from revenue service) years ago despite some being retained as work cars and seeing very regular use
  3. The 20 had some odd shenanigans with it in the past. When the four SW 1900-series XD40’s were new (1903-1906), after shakedown runs they were pretty much exclusively assigned to the 20 along with the VanHool artics, and very rarely made it into any other route (except the PM 461 that became a 20 run after, which was also the only other SW route you could regularly find an artic on before the pandemic struck). When the 2000 XD60’s arrived, the 1900’s became free-runners and could easily be found on other routes (incidentally, someone shot a 2000 training on the 461 last year, but none have
  4. 2001 in service on the 20 today. Get your 02xx shots while you can...
  5. Viva Orange has been running at least one artic on the route all week mixed in with the usual 40'ers. Today, all the units on Orange are artics. Earlier in April, they had been noted as running training runs with artics on Highway 7.
  6. A source mentioned they saw 4024 heading north on Guelph Line today, likely bound for HCRY. Did they pick up another car, or are storing another for someone else?
  7. Those look like they could be replacement units for the 23 YRT 200-series Van Hool artics. The fact that the VIVA 7200's might not be downgraded to YRT units could mean that the Van Hool artic fleet is on the way out.
  8. 1903 (SW-assigned) noted out in service this evening on the 165 Weston, its first day in service.
  9. Negative, you're likely correct. In addition to 1902 being on the Rt.1, North-assigned 1907 (Rt.52) and 1908 (Rt.57) are out this morning (probably their first times in service as well). The Southwest units (1904-1906 so far) appear to be getting assigned the 20 on an almost exclusive basis, similar to how the SW 1800's always seemed to be assigned the 88 until not too long ago.
  10. Both 1905 & 1906 (SW-assigned) are out on the 20 Jane this AM.
  11. No clue, I figured it might have been a test code or exposure as its last location was the SE garage yard. YRT 1902 Rt.900 07-29-2019.bmp
  12. Not sure if it's its first day in service, but 1904 (Southwest assigned) is on the 88 this morning. Someone else also noted 1901 (Southeast) out last week operating on the 99 Saturday (27th), apparently its first day in service(?). 1902 (Southeast) last traced to a Rt. 900 (?) on Monday (29th).
  13. Much, much smaller - all the units other than the three scrapped (18537, 18538 & 18554) are accounted for going to other owners, with the exception of 18539. Not sure if that one was also scrapped, or if it's sitting somewhere parked. NC Dot and Larry's Truck & Electric got the bulk of the RB Leasing F59 fleet.
  14. The source you're thinking of may not be the same source where the information came from. But, I'm sure someone will give them a look-see in time to figure out which is which... I'm not aware of any of the ex-GO units being scrapped en-masse except for the 3(?) that CAD Rail scrapped. Unless you mean the five that NC Dot had turned into cab control cars.
  15. Sources indicate they are ex-AMTK 317 & 394 (which is which is yet to be determined, both previously rotting away at NRE), with the work done by NRE Mount Vernon shops. Most of the ex-GO F59 units that RBRX was leasing out seem to have found second homes by now (with the few remaining as leasers on Metrolink sold to LTEX a few years back for continued leasing), so obtaining some of those now would probably be a no-go. They'd likely cost much more than a pair of F40 hulks anyway.
