    OC Bus Spottings

    Rode 4397 from Carleton to Rideau on the 7 today. Front destination sign was broken, so it had a paper 7 on the front windshield. Also, the last window on the rear passenger side was broken, missing the piston looking things that restrict how much it opens so it was open really wide, only being stopped by the metal window frame. -Charlie
  2. I guess in just under a year from now, route 5 will turn 60 years old!
  3. Question: What is the oldest route number currently in service? I know with the route number changes that a lot has changed (1,2 etc...) and was just curious which the oldest one currently is.

    Question: Does anyone know if the doors will be air operated or electric? Really hope that in the rear at least they are air, as the electric doors on the hybrids take super long to open.

    I personally find the smaller maple leaf just looks awkward at the rear. Would have made more sense to me to completely paint the rear red. -Charlie
  6. I don’t think so, I am taking about all the Line 2 stations and select other ones like Lincoln Fields, Baseline, Hurdman etc... -Charlie
  7. OC Transpo has started updating certain station layout diagrams to the new style, consistent with the diagrams for the new LRT stations. http://www.octranspo.com/routes/transitway -Charlie

    Saw 6584 on the 49 Elmvale departing Hurdman at about 12:10 this afternoon. Also, 4419 displaying 101 St Laurent heading westbound on the Queensway, was driving and was pacing it from about Riverside to Pinecrest-ish, after that not sure where it went. This was just now (no, I am not on my phone and driving as I write this). -Charlie Edit: meant to say Parkdale, not Pinecrest.

    Saw 1107 and 112X coupled together at Lees about a half hour ago.
  10. Speaking of OC Transpo flags, some old maple leaf style ones I have noticed lately are: 1. The off only sign at the end of the 86 Elmvale/Southvale, stop 0643. 2. Stop 6144 for the 97 on the Aiport Parkway. -Charlie

    Would the reason for having so many variations be so that they can say R2 South/Sud - Carleton as well as R2 North/Nord - Carleton, basically on for each direction for all the stations on the line, if they only run it partially? -Charlie
  13. Basically all of the eastern stations are pretty close to finished, with just landscaping to be done and furniture to be done. After that of course they need to test all the systems, but looking at purely construction they are pretty close to finished. -Charlie
