  1. I think I found a temporary solution for auctions that are still going on. After I save the link to archive.fo, I am able to save the images onto my computer, I think this will work until the auction ends. However, it is very time consuming and will probably clog up my computer if I do it long term.
  2. Glad to hear that I'm not the only one who's bothered by this. I indeed have started the task of archiving bus auctions that I want to save, even if the images won't load. I also noticed that the auction listings don't get blocked until after the auction ends. I have also tried to save the images to my computer, but unlike other online auctions sites, when I right click the image it there is no option to save the image.
  3. After returning from vacation a few weeks ago, I noticed that ALL the links to anything auctioned off on the website https://www.publicsurplus.com/ no longer show up after the auction ends. (Including buses) Whenever I click on a link on an auction that has ended, it no longer shows me the original listing with the winning bidder and how much it sold for, just a login page. Is there any reason as to why they did this so suddenly? I have been saving a lot of links to auctions for buses on Public Surplus for years now and I am very disappointed that I can no longer access them. And if possible, is there a way to save the link of an auction before it ends including the images posted by the auctioneer? I have tried certain sites such as Wayback Machine https://archive.org/web/ and http://archive.fo/, but they don't seem to save the images included.
  4. Had no idea they retired all these. The only ones I was able to photograph were 1401 and 1405.
  5. Does anyone know the year/make/model for these HRT trolleys that I photographed a while ago in VA Beach? I can't seem to find any information on them on the wiki or on Wikipedia.

  9. Hello everyone, I have noticed that the Charlottesville Area Transit wiki page is extremely outdated so I though I would point out some key changes to the roster: New 35 foot Gillig Low Floors #114 and 115 were delivered in 2015 and #116 and 117 were delivered in 2016. Cutaway buses 301-306 are all retired and have been replaced by Chevrolet cutaways numbered 307 through 312. Bus #400 was sold on Public Surplus about three weeks ago. All Chance Coach Trolleys and Optima Opuses are retired.
