  1. Weren't they going to renovate or demolish Russell?
  2. Orion VI

  3. Thing is with this, I live around the area and use Glencairn everyday, they completed this work like 6-8 months ago, this is nothing new.
  4. I don't know what you're getting at with the yield sticker, but i can definitely see the faded number underneath the new one. It was in the area today, so I thought i'd go snap a quick photo of it.
  5. I agree, @Express Network, let's keep it the way it is.
  6. We will have to see if it enters service again, and when/if it does, we will mark it as active.
  7. Harder or not, it's not like it hasn't happened before. https://www.blogto.com/city/2018/11/man-spotted-surfing-atop-ttc-bus-toronto/
  8. Really? I saw it on Caledonia about a week and a half ago, took a picture because it didn't have a bike rack. Maybe it was transferring back to a garage?
  9. Three TTC/TPS Events Support Orion VIIs sit waiting, in front of an EMS Emergency Transport bus, in Obico yard. From left to right, ES-5 (Ex. 7905) , ES-0 (Ex. 7900), ES-4 (Ex. 7908) and 7955 (EMS). Shot on Saturday, August the 1st, 2020.
  10. The latest board, just posted, (however from June 19th) says that there are 99 80xx Orion 7s in service. Don't know if this is still the case, but possibly only 1 out of 8058 and 8095 have retired?
  11. I guess this is kind of stupid, but maybe to act as a mule as well? IIRC, the flexities can't be pushed, like the CLRVs can by a truck, so maybe to pull dead flexities? As well as other things mentioned above.
  12. What's the plan for 4124? I mean I know it's a work car now, but any more info?
  13. In case anybody else wants the article: https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2020/07/30/track-of-dreams-24-year-old-transit-fan-buys-himself-an-old-ttc-streetcar.html
  14. It's 7325, and yep, same place as the RTS used to be.
  15. TTC 8160 (run 55) in a small collision with a car at Avenue and Wilson today.
  16. I do, in fact in only have F mount lenses. Plus, I honestly don't care for any of the benefits that a mirrorless camera gives, for comparable prices (silent shooting, faster continuous shooting, off of the top of my head). I've only ever used DSLRs to take photos, and I trust them the most. I'm looking for the best image quality I can possibly get, with 4K video, for the cheapest price, which to me seems to be the D780. I could also consider the D850, but i'm still looking into that.
  17. Anybody have experience with the Nikon D780? I've been looking at this camera for a while now.
  18. Hello all! What would be the best position to take photos or video of Niagara Transit's fleet? Preferably the Orions, but really, ill take what I can get. Would the garage in the morning be a good place for pullouts, or do some routes kind of terminate in the same place, as to get the most buses at once? Thanks!
  19. Assuming that Halton is just a stop on the way, or a makeshift storage facility for a bit, would this be the 6th CLRV to be on their property? (I'm counting the parts car in that)
  20. Even on top of that, I hardly believe the government's focus is on improving buses in Toronto right now, or even if they did, the cash to fork out for it. And on top of that, are bus companies even accepting orders right now? I don't think all the assembly line workers are 6 ft apart, but i don't know
  21. Plus, on addition to what BusMedic said, buses aren't nearly able to carry full capacity. Without the seats near the driver, and having to stay 6 feet away from others, i don't think buses can even carry more than 10 people (40ft).
