  1. OC Bus Spottings

    Spotted #8023 on the 87 today.
  2. The Random Thoughts Thread

    My Grandmother passed away last week and I have fond memories of her and me taking the bus together on OC Transpo Route 8 either to the Museum of Civilization or to the Rideau Centre. She would keep me company on the bus and we would just have fun browsing around the mall or the museum we have good times to together. The 8 had a good variety of buses running on that route everything from a GM/MCI/NovaBus Classic, a New Flyer D40, an Orion V and you would occasionally get an Orion-Ikarus even though it wasn't that big of high ridership route like the 2, 7, 85 or 95. Funny one time we took the bus to go back home and we both we're exiting from a MCI Classic (Grey Line Scheme) and we both exited from separate doors my door swung open just fine but Grandma's door didn't open and the bus pulled away and I was all my myself and I was asking the neighbours for help but then she came running home and I was relieved. She even dubbed our bus "The Number 8 Bus" RIP Grandma you will be missed!

    Because the Fishbowls were iconic buses of North America and they were in better shape than the 1991-02 Orion Vs.
  4. STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    Good Job! Except some of the 89s had small round tailights (8902, 05, 06, 07 the last 4 active) and the early 9001-07 had large rear windows and small round tailights like the 94-95 Classics.

    My favourite poster for Star Wars Episode 1 3D back in 2012. I like the shades of green & blue on the lightsabers.

  10. I don't know for sure, but I think probably yes. I also believe the A/C was still intact with the Gray Line buses when the A/C was in disconnected on the others buses from 91-93.
