  1. Translink fleet overhaul watch

    Users Enviro500, MCWmetrobus, and 323 Surrey Ctrl Stn used to be the "big names" on this forum with first-hand information. I believe Enviro500 was the one who made most of these threads. Enviro500 and 323 Surrey Ctrl Stn have since moved on but MCWmetrobus is still around giving out ban hammers As far as I know, refurbishments thread was used for tracking what went back out on the road FRESH after refurb and is actually encouraged as a photo sharing thread. I believe it was created as a sightings thread to track any freshly refurbished D40LF going from BCT scheme to the Sweep scheme. In my mind that thread is a relic of the good days. Those 3 would go out chasing D40LF and rely on that thread for sightings. Go look at the early pages. Nowadays with Tcomm and uniformed paint schemes it isnt really that exciting. The FOH watch thread (this one) is also used to cover refurbishments in progress, but it is also used to track any accident victims and any other missing buses.

    Those 2 are at south fence lol
  3. Translink fleet overhaul watch

    BTC Check: 1511 8/16/17 Body shop: Nova 96/9700, LFR Trolley Repair bays: 9259, 3294, 7318, 9449, 7257, 9228, another orion, another D40LF East Wall: 9448 South fence: 3358, 2547, 7345, 7193, C40LFR, 9656, 9697, 9565, Novabus, 9281, 9283. It appears 2547 was involved in some sort of accident. Minor body damage in the front, and it was last seen in May doing a 10. I don't know if some HTC drivers can fill in on this, but I cant explain the presence of 7301 and 7257 at BTC. Some of us thought those were done for good after sitting at HTC through the harsh winter.
  4. BYD Battery Electric Bus Demo (2017)

    This needs a new thread, which I have created.

  8. Vancouver Special Sightings

    Dang, didnt know that was a thing (I was too busy playing pokemon at that time) Anyways, I consider this special because I see skytrains 5-6 days a week: 6 car mark 1 made up entirely of ad-wrapped 500-600 series cars spotted on Expo Line today

    I suggest moving the ongoing streetcar discussion to the TTC Streetcar news page. Thanks!
  11. Vancouver Special Sightings

    Probably the first one here to have rode a CNG bus on a north van route This driver almost missed the left onto Howe street! I made the call at the last second xD (Although small, luckily nobody needed stops until Burrard.)
  12. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    Appears the switches were later than I thought. 8085, 47, 48 on N9 tonight.
  13. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    Most likely the latter, didnt see anything wacky going on until late tonight. Still waiting for something to happen on the N9
  14. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    Most, if not, all the fireworks shuttles for the finale tonight are VTC XDE60, which is nice because I havent caught any of the 3 2015s outside of the 49 yet.

    You should get into the habit of reading the alerts page.
