  1. 447, 576, and 9702 are retired 447 totalled off in a December 13th collision 576 experienced severe engine problems September 28th, and has since been marked for scrap 9702 failed a safety inspection in April of 2016, and hasn't been in service since Oh and 9706 blew her engine in December!
  2. That's the CKOM ad wrap, and it is also on 1310. It's a nice green/white wrap, and it actually looks decent on our artics. No new ads that I can think of really. Seeing quite a few buses wrapped for Hoffmann Kool insurance though.
  3. This might be a long shot, but I'll try on here anyway. This was between 1:30 and 2:00, and was in Saskatoon. Was anyone from here on bus 1608 at Market Mall. You were a younger child, about 9 years old, and were with you mom. You were talking to her about the Blue Bird Vision and Thomas buses at the mall. You later mentioned that the bus you were riding was a Nova LFS. Just putting this on here from a friend, he heard this and told me. Lots of parts in her. Also was used as a storage shed until recently.
  4. The 13 has 4 buses on it. The runs with high floors start at 7:02 at Lawson Terminal, and the second one is at 7:27 at Broadway and Cascade. The buses meet at University for :14 and :44 after, with the Broadway loop being about 55 minutes, and the Lawson loop being about 55 minutes. Other routes with interesting buses being run on them are the 5, 14, 22, and 23, all of which have high floors run on at least one or two keys. 55/18 for a while had antics running on one of three keys, but that hasn't happened too recently. 583 was parked back in December for engine issues, but returned to service briefly on the 23, only to be changed off due to issues. She is parked awaiting an inspection now.
  5. Oops! That was a typo in my post! I meant 1005 has returned to service since her accident. She returned on December 27th 2016. The front end appears to be repainted. Good hearing from you again too. For the first time in a very long time, the compound has been cleaned out completely. All buses are now at the new garage. For the first time since September 2010, 412 returned to roaming the streets. Well, okay, she just had a quick trip the the new garage, and she didn't really drive on over there. Here's a shot of her on the hook. Picture by Saskmatt7.
  6. Well, if you want to get some shots of the old garage while there's still buses running out of it now is the time! January 14th is the last full day out of the garage. If you want any souvenirs you can check the garbage cans lol they are tossing lots of old things! Even some bus stop signs are in there too! All 600 hybrids have been parked due to the cold weather. None have been in service this year yet. 820 is also parked. 1008 has been removed from service. With the new garage opening up, there is a need for shuttles between the new garage and downtown. The arbocs are the candidates for this task.
  7. 1007 re-entered service after her accident on December 27th, 2016 110 is back in service 104 remains out of service 0614 has had parts removed from her. She has been out of service since July 2016
  8. http://ckom.com/article/1170971/driver-issued-ticket-after-crash-saskatoon-city-bus 447 involved in an accident this morning. It was on the route 180 Kenderdine express (despite the article listing it as a 311 to Murray)
  9. Finished already, first day out of new garage is January 15th, 2017.
  10. I was told that the front end also suffered some damage. Not sure where she is now, might be getting fixed. 601 was involved in an accident in late July 2016, and was pulled from service. It was then sent to MTB to be rebuilt. 601 re-entered service November 7th, and now sports a similar look to the 200's. New upgrades for 601 include new grey flooring. 207 on May 25th, 2016, as it was being taken out of the garage for rebuild, struck the side of a doorway at the garage, thus resulting in damage along the passenger side, damaging the rear door and two windows behind it. 110 has been removed from service.
  11. Wow, 1005 held up pretty well! Looks like just the bumper, bike rack, and windsheild are damaged! This is 1005's third accident this year!! Thanks for posting the images! So, Lego Bus, how often do you ride the bus? Do you get a chance to ride our ex-Calgary units, the 100 series?
  12. Welcome to the CPTDB Lego Bus! Great to hear there's another transit enthusiast in Saskatoon! 1005 has indeed been removed from service since that accident. It is currently at the body shop getting an estimate done. As for your photos, you don't have to worry. Everyone on this board is pretty good with respecting each other's photos and not taking them as their own. If you want, you can put a watermark on the image to show its yours. Buses 9702 and 576 have been removed from service as of October 2016. 576 is currently on hold. Transit has ordered 4 2017 Grande West Vicinity buses to be delivered early 2017. Expected numbers are to be 1701 thru 1704.
  13. Yes, 115 did get a replacement destination sign. It's a Luminator sign from ex-9516. It replaces her badly messed up signage that was on the bus when we purchased it back in 2014. It's still got its flipdot run sign, drivers side sign, and it's rear sign. Here is a shot I got of it a little while ago: Not sure when she got the signage installed.
  14. New flooring, and fresh, shiny new paint. Other than that, everything else was just cleaned up. All glass was polished up too. Other than that, everything else is pretty much the same!
  15. 2002's have returned from rebuild. 203 was first unit to return and 208 last unit to return.
