  1. Good to hear you still have the tune up stuff. The tools we had at Mt Dennis are long gone.
  2. Mount Dennis opened with GM's, NG hybrids and a handful of Orion V 66xx-67xx buses. The OG hybrids started to arrive a year or so later to replace the Orion V's and some retired GM's. I remember driving one of the first ones to Mount Dennis from Wilson.
  3. They still belong to Malvern but as Bus Medic mentioned, they are having hoists replaced. For the time being the training buses are being sent to Arrow and Mt Dennis for MTO inspections and repairs.
  4. Many of the NG's at Mt Dennis have it installed already.
  5. Correct, they were both used as parts donors then decommissioned at Mt Dennis.
  6. Did some checking and apparently 7907 7911 7929 7939 have been sold to Sault Ste Marie transit and were towed away earlier this week. 7931 has a failed engine, not sure if it's retired or will be repaired.
  7. They are fine when you're sitting in a $2500 Recaro seat.
  8. Both are still at Hillcrest. 9029 was temporarily sent back to Mt Dennis for MTO inspection and when completed was sent back to Hillcrest to complete the rebuild.
  9. Haven't head anything regarding the 7900's or 8000's. I doubt any 7900's will be repainted since they are next on the kill list.
  10. Correct, both have been retired. Considering the current situation with the LFS hybrids being grounded, I would not be surprised to see 7575 pressed back into service temporarily if the MTO is still valid.
  11. Not much to see in that picture but I've checked and the bus had indeed been retired. The engine failed a few week ago and they decided not to fix it.
  12. 7936 has been retired. The bus had an engine failure back in December and has been used as a parts bus since that time.
