  1. Effective December 18th: 601 - weekday southbound trip from Bridgeport to Pebble Hill at 4:43 PM is cancelled. Saturday and Sunday northbound trip at 9:53 PM and Sunday northbound trip at 9:23 PM is converted back to a Steveston Highway trip.

    So, with that evidence, I'll revert @LegoNovaLFS2001's edit on the wiki.

    A problem with that would be if anyone has photos or evidence that the engines are ISL9 or ISX12 engines, and aren't a CPTDB Wiki Editor, they wouldn't be able to share their evidence. Besides, this discussion does actually involve the buses in trial, so I think this would be the appropriate place for this discussion.

    If we are going to go with the builders' plate, then do we even have any photos of the builders' plate that proves it states it has an ISL9 engine? Because if we don't, then @LegoNovaLFS2001 saying the builders' plate says it has an ISL9 engine has just as much reliability as them saying it actually has an ISX12 engine.

    According to @LegoNovaLFS2001's edit summary, the builder plate does say it has an ISL9 engine, so that means the builder plate was misprinted (which is unlikely) or Alexander Dennis changed the engine to an ISX12.

    According to the wiki's history log on the 1008-1009 page, user @LegoNovaLFS2001 said that they got a look at the engine bay and found it has a ISX12 engine.

    Since the Summer?
  8. Translink Refurbishments

    Saw 2270 refurbished at Stanley Park yesterday. Not sure exactly whether it was been refurbished in early December or late November because I can't see how far back it's assignment history goes back on T-Comm, due to some recent problems with the website, and the fact it seemed to be lightly dusted in grime, thus showing usage.

    9247 has a door that's from a 2008 Orion V (9281??)

    I wonder what T-Comm page for S008 and S009 would look like if S008 and S009 (the retired Ford shuttles) were still active to this day. Would we get two maps and two assignment histories? One map and assignment history for the shuttle, and another map and assignment history for the double-deckers lol?
  12. While looking at the SWATP draft plan map 1 - 15 year implementation map, I noticed that TransLink seems to be planning to build an exchange at Highway 99 and Highway 17a. I presume all bus routes that go by it will stop there.

    Is this an unscheduled run on the 601 or something? As far as I'm concerned, the 601 South Delta Exchange only operate during peak hours, and there is no 11:05 601 according to the schedule.

    Currently reading through tweets of TransLink: it appears that the double deckers did indeed come into service in the morning, but apparently, there might have been an issue with the bus, as GPS was showing that a road supervisor was with the bus at Matthews Exchange as the 7:58 AM trip from White Rock Centre. Update: it will come out in the afternoon between the hours of 2–6, running a 351. The double deckers won't be running the 601 until some low-hanging wires are fixed.
