    I saw a XE 40, possibly 3704, in regular service on 59 Maple Leaf.

    The run box read "TTC". Is this a usual thing for these buses, or was someone having a bit of fun?

    I'm assuming they don't use them since the run box on the new flyers feature the alphabet, numbers and has one extra slot. So if a driver were to change the run box it would take a long time and it's simply not worth it when they have other stuff to do when starting their run.

    Forgive me for being slow but it this an issue with the 501 itself or with the Flexities?

    Something is wrong with the rails (or debris on the rails) which is causing the streetcars on the 501 to get their brake systems damaged like shown above. They can't fix the problem currently since they have to pin point where exactly this is happening, which can be anywhere along the 501 and 501L.

    Just saying 1291 does not have LED headlamps anymore, saw it this afternoon on the 39. It had its regular headlights.

    @GTAtransitfan1-Toronto @Matthew TTC 4120 It still has LED headlights, only night running lights. All of the Orions that have these new LED headlights are only for the night running lights, the day running lights were never changed. The driver was probably on the day running light mode. 

    1st photo is the day running light and the 2nd one is the night running light. Drivers are required to use the night running lights at all times.

    or it could be though of as wearing snap backs the wrong way round from a side profile...


    The reason it looks off is because the bus was spec’d without frameless windows, or fake black paint to mimick the frameless effect, which would’ve come close to the roof line. BYDs here have small windows so without the black effect the proportions look off. Case in point is the demo that visited the garages. If it had it, no one would’ve bat an eye. But I guess they thought this was the best way to display the livery. 

    Agreed, I don’t like it one bit.

    Went to High Park loop to get some shots of the CLRVs before they leave. I asked an operator if the CLRV still had 507 signs, and he said no. Does anybody think that the TTC will equip them for the last day?

    Why would they? It's a waste of money to equip a sign that they don't have in stock anymore on a streetcar that will be sent to the scrapper afterward anyways.
