  1. I got in trouble today by admin saying the photo I took was illegal and now allowed but somehow this was not in the rules or else I wouldn't have posted. My car was in park and was not moving. Bus took up 2 lanes at lift lock in Peterborough I don't get it why he started at me. So just to let y'all know you can not take photos in the drivers seat.
  2. I was in park. I was waiting for him to turn. So it was not illegal. That's 2 lanes he took up so threw my car in park and waited so no this was legal sure if I was driving. Ask me private message me. Stuff like this make me mad. I wasn't in the wrong. If it was please make people aware of this being not allowed Only time if its illegal by the OPP is if the car is in park on brake so I was totally legal in this photo. Andrew burdette was busy today so going to call an ask him tomorrow
  3. During the summer they all get parked after summer is out and only needed for spares and MTO requires them to have certain number of buses or is it insurance anyways one of them requires them to have so many buses. Its normal in the summer to see them parked to late august then go in for repairs and safety Hmmm who told you that do you remember this guys name? I was told by more than one driver its not supposed to be in service. Maybe they had no Choice and temp out of retirement? Maybe they made a mistake retiring 14 I will call up a supervisor and ask what is going on with 14 and 04. And

    Sorry for being a little burry but both old girls are still in the garage looking good, I wish she was out when I got a photo of her on July 8 2013. According to the female supervisor the Classic will be retired next year and the LFS' will be inspected and sent out for service, I told them it is best to keep them as spares. She said the New Look will most likely not pass safety they think next time it need to be inspected. 16 is officially retired confirmed by her, and now a parts donor for 14 (oh no!). Sad but what can you do right? Hopefully they will keep the 14 as a historic bus like Londo
  7. Total fail on this one, my phones shutter speed slowed for some reason, causing a delay in getting this 3rd Gen Nova. OOPS! I was stopped when taken. This one was having a light pole in the way making the bus destination sign half missing. I was not pleased about this photo. Extremely backlit and grainy CP photo during an afternoon and the angle of the photo was not great... making the photo a total fail but still on the artistic side of it I liked the rays coming off of it. This is a Welland Transit Blue Bird, this photo is very distorted and making the bus look kind of weird. But th

  13. How many SD40-2F's are remaining or are they all getting overhauled? I saw one in Alberta at Strathcona Yard in the winter. Thats the last time I saw one. Are they all being sold off like the SOOs SD60s
