  1. Good point. When sending money by PayPal, there is a note field prior to confirming the sending. You could enter a little note for Rob in that field to say which charter it is for.
  2. Red Deer has 17 CNG LFS, all of which have been delivered although I do not think any are in service at this point. The fleet numbers are 10021-10025, 10104-10113, 10136, 10147.
  3. Let's stop this discussion right here. We have ordered a 55 passenger highway coach for this trip. WE DID NOT ORDER AN ACTIVITY BUS !
  4. We will not be requesting a specific vehicle. That is always left up to Parkinson.
  5. Here are the PDF files of the flyers for the two spring events. South Central Ontario Charter Flyer - 13MAY17.pdf TTC 7400 Series Charter Flyer - 08APR17.pdf
  6. The Toronto Transportation Society will be operating two fan trips in the spring: Saturday, April 8 - TTC 7400 charter. This series of Orion VII buses will start to be retired later this year. The TTS has obtained permission to take the bus on TTC operated routes in York Region (west of Yonge, north of Steeles). These routes will be taken over by YRT when the Yonge-University-Spadina subway extension opens at the end of the year. Saturday, May 13 - South Central Ontario charter - A Parkinson highway coach will be chartered and we will visit Orangeville, Owen Sound, Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, Midland and Orillia. This will be a very long day (over 12 hours) but we will be visiting transit systems that we have never visited before (with the exception of Orillia that we visited in 2010). More details on these events will be on the TTS website within the next week. The TTS will also be operating a fall charter but it has not been finalized at this point.
  7. It would appear that the TTC has renumbered another Orion VII bus. Bus 7883 is now appearing on the tracker and I have seen a photo of this bus at Eglinton division. Using the licence plate as identification, it would appear that it is renumbered from 7666. Has anybody heard about this and do we know why it was done?
  8. On the OC Transpo Rural Partner website, routes 500, 502, 503 are still be shown as being operated by Transport Thom. The timetable online have not been updated yet. Route 500 does service Gatineau. http://www.octranspo.com/routes/rural_partner_routes
  9. The VINs for the three Novas, 1722-1724 are: 1722 - 2NVYL82J3G3750320, build date Sep/16 1723 - 2NVYL82J5G3750321, build date Sep/16 1724 - 2NVYL82J7G3750322, build date Sep/16 Can a Wiki editor update the Wiki?
  10. Thanks for doing this. One of these days, I am going to have to learn how to become a Wiki editor myself.
  11. Peterborough did receive 5 new Novas in 2016 that are not listed on the Wiki yet. Here are the details: -67 2NVYL82J2G3750230 Plate 673 OBJ Capacity 33 / or 24+3 wheelchairs -68 2NVYL82J4G3750231 Plate 673 1BJ -69 2NVYL82J6G3750232 Plate 673 2BJ -70 2NVYL82J8G3750233 Plate 673 3BJ -71 2NVYL82JXG3750234 Plate 673 4BJ The roster that I received did confirm that all Classics are retired but the Four Orion VI buses are still shown as active, most likely last resort spares. Can one of the Wiki Editors update the Wiki with this info? Thanks.
  12. Actually, Mother's Day is always the second Sunday in May which this year is the 14th. So, no conflict at all with Mother's ! I hope to be able to make most of the events by YUL in a very ambitious year.
  13. It is time for that operator to get his eyes checked! Bus 931 is the only bus on the hill older than the 0300s. Even the 0300s are disappearing quickly as the scrapper has taken them in numerical order up to 0314. Only 0315 and above are still on the property.
  14. Of course, how hard can it be? This is a work in progress. The 1100 and 1200 Xcelsiors have a problem with the electrical ground and as such are reversing the signal sent when the doors open (thus sending it when the doors close). Obviously the software has to have some kind of a signal to know that the doors are opening in order to announce the route and destination. Staff are working on a solution but it involves rewiring one of the circuit boards (and not screwing up anything else in the process). It will eventually be fixed but it will take time.
  15. Here are the group photos from the Guelph fan trip.
