  1. Former Southland (CT Access contract) 3573 awaiting disposal at the Recon Metals scrapyard in SE Calgary. 7/04/2020
  2. I'd like to request this page: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Central_Ohio_Transit_Authority_2831-2838 to be renamed to "Central Ohio Transit Authority 2831-2840". Thanks.
  3. A couple weeks ago, me and a friend saw ex-CT Arboc 1758 along 6a Street, in between 59 and 64 Avenues in SE Calgary. Today, I noticed in my pictures that I took today, that 1758 is now currently at Recon Metals in the holding yard.
  4. I've tried shooting RAW files for my bus photography, but the thing is, the files are massively big, and since I don't have unlimited space on my hard drive, it is a bit unfeasable to me. My bus photos are usually scaled down resolution wise for the web anyway. But yea, those RAW photos are very nice quality, esspecially when it comes to all that detail (esspecially in the night shots)!
  5. Just drove by the main yard along McKnight Blvd and it is still occupied, albeit absolutely packed with buses. Some spottings my friend was able to see from McKnight Blvd: 2705 - 2005-07 Corbeil minibus (couldnt tell chassis but probably Ford) 2582 - first generation BB Vision 2717 - 2003-04 Corbeil E-350 single rear wheel cutaway 121226 - 2012 Thomas EF 121281 - Federal Coach Permier on a Freightliner M2 chassis 130717 - Thomas C2 204446 - ex-California IC CE 208807 - 2007 IC BE 220446 - ex-California IC RE
  6. Southland #205 (2nd) at Sarcee Trail and Bow Trail in the SW. Photo captured November 18, 2019.
  7. Hello, please apply here: https://cptdb.ca/forum/59-applications/ as stated in the first post of this thread. Thank you!
  8. No, the 24 Quarry Park code exists for the final trips of the night that start at EB Quarry Park BV & 18 ST SE and terminates at Quarry Park Station NB. 24 Ogden and 24 City Centre still exist (as well as the stupid 24E, ROUTE 24) however sometimes drivers manually type in the 24 Quarry Park code instead of the 24 Ogden code. This occurs with several other routes as well. For reference: https://transit55.ca/calgary/trip/53034704
  9. Looks like I have not mentioned this in here yet. Mid last month, I noticed the First Blackfoot yard has vacated of all buses. Sometime this month, if I have time, I will drive up to the yards up in the North and see whats up there.
  10. 2005 is now sitting in the U2 boneyard at Oliver Bowen not looking in the best of shape. All the other cars in that line seem to be already retired cars.
  11. 7956 with engine cover open at Mahogany Gate and Mahogany Blvd SE. It's been sitting there for quite some time now.
  12. Willco 408, a 2002 CV200 with a CAT 3126 is now listed for sale. I've seen this bus plenty of times in 2017, and from what I remember, it was a sick running bus.
  13. Went out and checked out the Blue Line shuttles today. In terms of vehicle allocation, it was a mix of D60LFRs and XD40s. The shuttles on the Westbrook-Bridgeland route were (in order): 6015, 8213, 6023, 6063, 8280, 8348, 8330, 6062, 6061
  14. It appears 7992, 7994 and 7995 are now transferred over to SG.
  15. My friend has the Canon SL2, the predecessor from the SL3 and he is very happy with his. The Canon SL3 has a lot more features than it's predecessor, and as a result I think it'll be a great camera for you, weither that be photography or videography.
