  1. Yes they sold 2 at Ritchie Bros Auctioneers last fall
  2. Saw Nova 1601 coming through Whitby this afternoon on its way to YRT
  3. DRT

    Barrie Transit

    66102 was retired and sold for scrap back in November
  4. Anything going to retire?Is #14 still around?
  5. DRT

    Barrie Transit

    Nova 1501 was seen coming through Port Hope this morning around 10:00 on route to Barrie
  6. DRT

    Brandon Transit

    Yes give or take, though they should be able to get away with doing an in-frame rebuild. Just bad luck more then one goes at the same time.
  7. 8051 is the only one left, the rest have been scrapped
  8. 8536-8538 are assigned to Whitby division. The 910 is operated by both Whitby and Raleigh.
  9. 6 of them are in the active lanes at Westney. 8005 had a fire and is still at Westney out of service. The remaining 4 are in storage at Raleigh.
  10. I drove by it actually; that's what gave me the idea to see if the rest were gone or not.
  11. They are doing construction in that lot now and all the buses that sat there for years are gone. 04 was sold off so I presume the others were too. 14 and 29 may be in another city yard, I'm not sure.
  12. An unknown Pacific Western coach burned to the ground on the 401 this morning. http://www.northumberlandnews.com/news-story/4553821-update-bus-fire-closes-hwy-401-eastbound-lanes-near-port-hope-until-surface-can-be-repaved/
  13. Both as far as I know. The space is too big for Century's needs, plus they don't need the office up front. Coach Canada is currently in talks to lease back the office in the front.
  14. No the City of Peterborough bought the yard. Century is looking for a place of their own.
  15. That bus is going for refurb next month.
  16. Those are ex. Century Transportation; exx. Coach Canada 427x Series buses. Year 2000 models. What they seem to be doing is bringing 12 year old buses from Century up to Alberta, and sending back down newer IC CE buses from Southland, I have seen a few 37xx series so far. A smart business move in my opinion as the ex. Coach Canada buses are in very good condition with minimal rust. Why retire it after 12 years and sell it for $2000 when you can use it at another division till it blows.
  17. 8142 is still in service pending retirement December 31
  18. Pacific Western is only taking over the School Bus division (Peterborough, Port Hope, and Whitby), the Century Airline service and Cobourg Transit. The coach , "Class D" charter division, and DRT Whitby remain with Coach Canada for now.
  19. EZ Rider 8980 transferred to Whitby today, it will be used on the new 310 route.
  20. Comon guys they don't look that bad
  21. DRT

    Ontario School Buses

    I've seen this before too it would also affect the fuel, temp, and OP gauges. Especially if the bus sits alot.
  22. On DRT's putting the bus in high idle will cancel the auto shutdown feature and the bus will keep on running. Are yours not the same?
