    TTC GM Fleet Reminiscing

    D40-90s were the first order to have A/C for TTC revenue service. They were fast and a nice sound to it, unique at the time compared to the 6v71s. Obviously looking at my user name, they were my favorite. Riding them on various routes out of Danforth garage when new and on Islington in the old colours with padded brown seats. I don't ever remember seeing them kneel, even though they had the feature. The D40-87 would replace them all at Danforth , they had the unique black tube in the front, I believe for the windshield wipers? I remember seeing a '91 Orion V kneel, but the beeping sound in those would never shut up, only when the bus was raised again. I remember them on various east end routes. I was never a fan of the trolley buses for whatever reason.

    Maybe have 143 go up Kingston, instead of to Neville Park?

    TTC in the news

    Bad or Good? I guess Bad if you took your comments away.
  4. For a second there I thought it was the A/C unit. time is flying from when I knew right away. Danforth ever have 8477-8486? I don't recall them on Danforth routes. Lake Shore wasn't far from Danforth Garage if some units made it over.
  5. With all these buses on TTC property, and TTC claiming they don't' have any garage space, and hybrids retiring, is service not being impacted? I guess the summer reduction is helping minimize the amount of buses needed. hopefully by Sept everything is worked out. Politicians need to increase service in time for the election...

    Future TTC Bus Orders

    So much for people saying NFI waste their time bidding on bus contracts. There's an option for up to 30 too

    176 Mimico isn't on the list, I guess because its just a pilot route? But isn't the 175 a pilot too?

    General Subway/RT Discussion

    They been storing them at night for a while now. looks like they just store four trains sets a night. two trains per track, on the first two sets of track, closets to the actual line. I guess they are storing them mid day too. How many during the mid day is stored there, I assume 4 sets?

    Ok, you guys are just reduced in the amount of OT you can do.

    Ok, that makes more sense. But if your missing that many buses on a route, and the union is claiming they're not hiring enough workers, you would think they would make a point, make service suffer to drive home the point to hire more. I thought the union was doing a work-to-rule, but if the hours is simply reduced then I miss read the whole purpose of what they're doing. @Bus_Medic Are you allowed to comment on that, or muzzled?

    I guess the operator is a Company man? lol Or was he simply pulled from one route for 86, similar to a shuttle? I doubt he would defy the union like that.
