  1. Ex OC Transpo GM Classic spotted in Mississauga

    I have to admit, I was laughing my head off. I didn't mean literally, though...
  2. Ex OC Transpo GM Classic spotted in Mississauga

    Any news on the bus?
  3. You missed 9110. 9103 had a stripe livery that was identical to the fishbowl livery, i.e. just a straight line going down the length of the bus, until the diagonal stripe. Plus, it had a completely red front. Wonder how that happened!
  4. So that explains the classics with the completely red front... I also recently looked over another topic on this board and saw that you posted a picture of 9054 (in the stripe) in the crash in 2003. How many D40s in the stripe were left by then?
  5. When they did paint them back, they forgot to put the diagonal stripe at the back of the bus, except for 9113. Another question: Why did they only paint some in the leaf? On another note, I saw your photo of 9111 all the way back in 2001 in the leaf with a rack. Was that the only classic like that at the time?
  6. When did the deal end? When did they get repainted?
  7. I was reading somewhere that OC decided to keep A/C on some '91 Classics, specifically the ex-Grey Line ones. Is this really true?

    Are there any others that are wrapped like that? Also, are 6501-6504 still in the Ottawa 2017 wrap?

    5077 on the 6 Rideau this morning. The bus had a orange wrap for an unknown company, I only saw it at the last second.
  10. Invero Light Rebuild Project

    If I understand correctly, what you're saying here is that only some Inveros have six gears enabled instead of five, but all of them have the same transmission.

    Is it just me, or do Inveros actually sound slightly different after being rebuilt? Did they stay with the B400R5, or get upgraded?
  12. STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    Added! So far we have three ex Calgarys, one MCI, and 3 Novas spotted.

    Oh, so the seats were actually changed for something different. Imagine what it would look like with red seats. Does anyone know why VIs would always catch on fire, but not Vs even though they have the same powertrain, and are both made by Orion? It seems that anything with a S50 in it will catch fire. The VIs, the old D60LFs, SOME Vs but not that many.

    That's not a one-off front, it's a two-off front! Or more if you count the ghost Classics! That's not the only Classic painted like that. 9216 has a front exactly like that, except with the old STO logo below the right headlight. It also has the stripes on the side. Any classic with a white front is in the ghost livery, except for these two classics AFAIK.

    Another question about the seats: Were the red seats the American Seating 6468 model, as in the seats on the Vs? Do you happen to have any pictures of 4001 with red seats in it?
