    Can confirm, W227 is indeed back in service. Spotted it while I was driving, pulling out of the storage barn and out onto Commissioners. Driven by an operator, approximately a half hour ago.
  4. It'll all depend on what Nova has on the line and whether Plattsburgh and St Eustache are producing buses simultaneously. With the 8620-8968/9200-9239 batch, some weeks you would have 2 buses arriving, and other weeks 34 buses arriving.

    Yup. Haven't seen our units stripped down to the frame to confirm if the upper front portion of the rear passenger compartment is welded to back end of the cab. There may have been some revisions between the 1st and 2nd gens, as cab sag doesn't seem to be prevalent on the 2nd gens.

    This may have been a result of a transfer between divisions. Back then, buses allocated to a division had the linen/mylar destination sign of the division it was allocated to installed in the sign box. It is not like today where an ODK for the electronic destination can carry all the route exposures for all surface routes. When a bus was transferred to another division, they would have to remove the old rollsign, and upon arrival at the new division. have a spare rollsign installed. If they were short buses, pretty sure these buses would be put into service (with a pre-made/handwritten window card), rather than being held from service. just to install a rollsign. There could have been other reasons as well: the motor for the sign could have been burnt out, no spare rollsigns to install, etc...

    He might of been here for that BHA convention that saw a Van Hool visit Malvern, not too sure (as I wasn't able to attend at the time). Both men depicted in the photo were confirmed to be two of the three deceased.
