  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. I think D40LF 333 might be pooched, it hasn't shown up out in service for a good while now. 546, 547 and 623 likely done as well, as those have been MIA over the past little while (I suspect retired when the other remaining 500's were). EDIT: after a good long absence, 333 appears to be back in service (as of March 13th).
  5. 1819 (SW) showed up on the 85 Rutherford this PM. 1824 (SE) on the 303 too.
  6. Brand new YRT XD40 1817 on its first day in service, Feb 1st 2019: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:York_Region_Transit_1817-a.jpg
  7. YRT Promaster 1897 noted driving around today, so there's at least 8 of them in that series if not more (1890-1897).
  8. Noted out today: YRT 1879 (plate 612 7BK) YRT 1893 (plate AX 57147, operated by Tok Transit Ltd) Are these for expansion or 2011 Arboc replacements?
  9. New Arboc 1878 and Dodge 1895 were spotted out in service today. No operator data noted on 1895, but 1878 shows "Tok Transit Limited": https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:York_Region_Transit_1878-a.jpg https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:York_Region_Transit_1895-a.jpg
  10. New plates on reactivated previously retired units (all verified): 546: 220 4BK 547: 220 5BK 623: 220 6BK With the bunch of units sold off recently, that leaves 550, 554, and 619-621 stored out of service or retired without disposition.
  11. 547 was out on the 21 this AM. Not sure if it was a change-off for another unit (I seem to recall checking earlier and seeing 709 in its place with 507 as the other unit, but I could be wrong). It's also been re-plated and sports a new high license plate: 220 5BK. Haven't seen one out in SW territory in a long while, but I suppose if they really needed a spare bus...
  12. Someone nabbed TTC T1 5185 out in Peterborough on a flatbed, destination not known: http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=30828
  13. My notes show: Length: 34' (10.36m) Width: 8' 2.5" (2.50m) Height: 14' 2" (4.32m)
  14. Some new Kitchener/Waterloo LRT cars enroute from Bombardier for delivery: http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=28451 http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=28450
