  1. I've always seen GO's own people maintaining the eastern part.
  2. Tell that to queen's park, that declared my outfit essential.
  3. deep breaths.....you can make it just a little longer...
  4. 1272 has returned to Malvern. MTO needs to be completed before hitting the road.
  5. http://www.americanshipper.com/main/news/omnitrax-canada-to-sell-manitoba-assets-66425.aspx
  6. I think it's time a thread was started. Official retirements are to commence in January. So far, dead are: 7005,7036,7084,7090,7104,7114
  7. Still allocated to Malvern currently.
  8. Actually, it's been back at Malvern for a week, but don't expect it to see any kind of service till the landslide infrastructure is in place.
  9. Twitter is for chirping.
  10. 1206 is at arrow being outfitted with the new "vision" CAD/AVL system. 8335 was next to it if I recall correctly.
  11. No. MTO expired.
  12. Why even bother responding to a tool like that?
  13. 9091 has returned to malvern.
  14. Should the market deem it viable, they may find 2nd lives elsewhere. Structural rust won't be an issue, that may be an advantage. Time will tell.
  15. How would artics be any more reliable? It's still the same cummins nine litre, no matter what bus it comes attached to.
  16. And I still maintain that it is. i didn't pull that prognosis out of my ass, it came directly from the superintendent of Duncan shops.
  17. I'm certain for safety's sake, it's reduced down to at least 24vdc.... Plus, what vehicle heating company makes something that works at 600vdc? all I've seen work on 12 or 24 vdc. on the PCCs, was it just the resistors supplying the heat that were 600v? Or were the blowers too? If they were, I'm sure it's all contained under the floor, with only ductwork into the body. hybrid buses utilize 600v for the tub heater grids, but 24v for the blower fans upon them. Where ever practical, use the lowest voltage.
  18. Buying the point man coffees helps.
  19. For the umpteenth time, the front doors are not replaced.
  20. 1218 is in Hillcrest for rebuild.
  21. Needs a battery tub. Waiting on a donor transplant. 1252 is behind, generator shorted out. Part backordered.
  22. I see the wheel fenders on the "twins" are the same as early Orion Is. Shouldn't be surprised, I guess. no bus manufacturer makes everything in house.
  23. It's been at the front of the west lane for a couple of weeks
