    Out of ordinary Calgary Transit bus spottings

    I've been seeing it for the past couple of months, so that's why I thought I would ask here to see why it's still happening.

    Had 8294 go past me on the 453 last night covering a shuttle run. Are we still pretty low on shuttle drivers ATM?

    CTrain - U2 cars Retirement Watch

    The body of 2017 actually looks so much better than a lot of the others that have been scrapped. It barely has any rust or holes. But these are probably scrapped when something is too expensive to repair or there's something wrong with the electronics that isn't worth fixing.

    2018 Novabus LFS CNG Sightings and Deliveries

    I'm surprised how few of these have went out this week, especially since Monday. Is there something wrong with them that they are fixing?

    On the 301. Probably should have been an artic that should have went out instead.

    General Route Discussion and History

    For the service review, it's interesting to see that they want to extend the 93 to Chinook from Westhills instead of covering 45th Street and Spruce Cliff. I don't know how well this would work for service reliability with possible delays on Glenmore, but I do like the transferless East - West access across the Glenmore Causeway. Still keeps it a pretty long route though from Coach Hill to Chinook.

    I thought they would have more of them ready to go on the first day of Stoney Garage since they've been sitting around for a couple of months already.

    I guess not really out of the ordinary with the new sheet, but interesting to see some of the assignments from Stoney. There were artics on a run of the 9 and 23 this morning because they were interlined with the 116. And a couple of 7600s on the 307 during the AM peak which probably makes sense since they were only out as AM trippers.

    General BRT discussion

    Are there buses with signs still not programmed correctly for the Max Teal? Saw a Max Teal 7800-series bus on 37th Street SW today displaying the old 306 BRT MRU Heritage. Took me by surprise for sure.

    There's at least 5 more of these along the South Fence at SG, and saw 2 more being delivered yesterday heading off Deerfoot onto 32nd Avenue. The Luminator Titan sign looks sharp. Will they run from SG at all or are we keeping them until Stoney opens in the new year?

    New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    Was only in Vancouver for 3 days back at the end of November, and won't be back again for a couple of months. Will see if any of these are around then. But it was great to see 7115 out and running then regardless.

    New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    I saw it two weeks ago near Metrotown while driving and said I had to get a picture before it went into retirement. Seeing it still around brought a smile to my face. Fond memories of riding the 95/96 D40LFs during my university days. Thought it might stick around for another couple of months but I guess that's not going to happen with all the new buses coming in.

    2018 Novabus LFS CNG Sightings and Deliveries

    I think another one of these might have arrived as this one had #02 on the sheet of paper attached to the front window. Here's a picture of it beside 7659 and 8203 at SG.
