  1. Got to ride 6351 on 95 Fallowfield from Kent at 1600 yesterday. 6351 was on 2 Blair today at 1150 on Kent street. Very nice interior but I dont like the Stop request roof signs in the front part. Reminds me of STO RTS as the Exit at rear is on front bulkhead, Another above middle doors (a newflyer casing saying STOP REQUESTED), and the third at the regular spot in the trailer section before bulkhead saying exit at rear. Powertrain sounds a lot better that the 6000s. the joint section is awesome, lots of room ang grabstraps in the middle of bellows finally. Hope thay are good buses in the long run.
  2. Just saw 0702 broken down on HWY5 southbound lane between Mont-Bleu and st-Raymond exits.
  3. What happened to the Engin the bus is a year old
  4. Saw ex STCUQ 8620 (i think) on des Allumetiere westbound. Front Luminator said Hors-Service but it had a red LED sign on the back it sait 3242. Phone number is 770-3242!!!! Whats with that!
  5. I also though 4140 was the only VI to have a rack! oops.. 6023, 6095, 6177 and 6178 have extra holes on the engin compartment pannel (hood) to prevent overheating. 6325 has a egg-white A/C ceiling cover at the back section of the bus. 9303 no longer has its extra turn signals above the headlights that the fleet of 93 has. 9054 has a solid pane of glass behind the front door instead of tip in and black frames. (ex TTC window frames) 8950 has a large black trim painted around the rear window. 9701 had a piece of trim that looked like a piece of stained wood above the hump between the back seats instead of the stainless. have not been on 9701 in a long time.
  6. Have a look at this video, look for the articulated bus and comment on driver reaction! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKJDPGOdsHg
  7. (Luminator..../ I saw 8809, i think, this morning at Tunny's Pasture., Out of service turning westbound on Scott. It has a flashy red (OC) rim on the LR wheel.
  8. That is weird. The only 3 digit route I know of on the STO, is the 300! Will look into that.,
  9. This bus is equiped with a priority sign at the rear that would ligh up with the left turn signal, haven't seen them light uo in years. an 88 or 89 classic has on as well! http://cogeno.fotopic.net/p44530880.html
  10. Rode 0709 taday Driver said the bus was slow on take-off. I asked him about the ramp and he told me STO disconnects them and screws them in to the body. He did not atempt to take it out but the wheelchair seats on the 07 are not bolted down like the 02. weird
  11. When I was STO in July, 0005 was in that exact condition beside the re-fuel station at the STO Garage. Its suspension was completely to the ground so it has not been in service since the Casino wrap was removed, and probably has not left STO property since exept for "Strong Man" competition.
  12. Got to ride 0714 last night on 37 ottawa around midnight. They dont have that "New" smell as much as NewFlyer.
  13. Was Driving thrue Pembroke Ontario (Intersection of Ont 17/QC 148) and saw 2 ex STM Classics in Montreal livery beside a few THOM new looks. One fleet number was 56-053. One ex STM new look in service in Gatineau (sto 8310).
