    TTC Orion VII Movement List

    Most likely a maintenance part transfer, or part pick up. Definitely not a move

    TTC Orion VII Retirements

    One would assume within the last two weeks given the snow around the vehicle. No wonder I couldn’t find it on my brief visit back in December lol

    TTC GM Fleet Reminiscing

    The VII NG has access door to the HVAC external access point on the rear, while the LFS has the engine radiator situated above the rear window in the pics above
  4. That would be an issue that could possibly be covered on weekends, but definitely not during the week. Mixed usage of equipment is a nuisance for any route in a city as busy as Toronto. With buses, gameplay will be the highlight of driver entertainment. Streetcarland is already a stress of its own with low floor and legacy use on Queen. For route management, I could see this being a separate hell of its own because of multiple divisions on one route (my apologies for the topic derailment once again)
  5. Not sure. I was on my own assumptions as I drive streetcars for a living lol. Given that they repainted a few legacy streetcars just over a year ago, and now some have gone to pasture, who knows what’s going on now (no intention of topic derailing)
  6. I completely agree and understand. But one would think that they would get a good grasp on the articulated buses, or cover the NGs first. But given the NGs just got refurbished a year or so ago, and the artics can’t have a high number off the road at any given time, I believe it makes sense to send the OG HEVs for preventative maintenance. There’s a better chance that the vision equipped buses will get it over the trump unit counterparts

    TTC NovaBus LFS Movement List

    Better bet for maintenance personnel training
  8. This car gave me trouble on Tuesday. Suffered a low voltage issue that would normally be a small thing, but never resolved. Got pulled out of service as a precaution.
  9. There’s another OG VII hybrid outside of Harvey shops tonight in the new repaint scheme. Too dark and far from the street to tell what unit it was
  10. I saw 4164 (I believe it was Monday) pushing 4003 westbound, just west of Russell crossing Greenwood. Possibly to get 4003 to Roncesvalles

    Something went wrong here

    Someone may find out the hard way lol

    TTC's CAD/AVL "Vision" System

    The rear facing cameras are definitely gonna be helpful when they’re mud covered lol
  15. It’s funny how on the service summary says the there were 80 still active just over a week prior to this fleet allocation sheet. Probably the head of fleet management gave the final decision by the end of the month
