  1. 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?
  2. 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

    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.

    YRT Retirements

    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...

    Did the TTC or OC Transpo sell buses to Cuba?

    Released a year or two back it seems: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-31571735

    There's some more info on Can-Ar/Tokmakjian's export operations in this (old) article: http://www.luxner.com/cgi-bin/view_article.cgi?articleID=1051

    Most of Rapido's locomotive releases come with a decal sheet with lots of fleet numbers for renumbering and other labels/logos/etc that can be added as appropriate, so they will probably provide a decal sheet with multiple rollsign exposures that can be applied over the existing rollsign area, and additional fleet numbers to apply if you want to do another unit.

    Something's up with 8058 - they've torn that thing down rather thoroughly, too thoroughly. If they were going to junk it they'd probably just remove the seats and interior panels/components to reuse in another unit, and junk the rest. The :new" rear window body panel from another unit sitting behind 8058 is also suspect, like they are planning to replace 8058's the rusted-out one. Methinks maybe the fact that the TTC has a Rapido fishbowl model for sale (pre-order) on their site numbered 8058, perhaps someone changed their minds on keeping the real thing... But who knows.

    Rapido Trains TTC GM fishbowl replica

    Actually, Rapido announced its purchase months ago when they put out the HO-scale New Look promo video, and they've been posting photos of it undergoing overhaul and repainting for the last month or two.

    Hmm, crunching the numbers again, this list is missing 22-009 (that became 2600), so unless there's a typo it looks like 64 units.
