    TTC 1096 1017 on 126 1387 1251* 8385 8187 on 90 1243 on 33 8340 on 63 4541 4494 4407 4530 4468 4466 on 512 *= 1251 entered St Clair West station very slowly. After offloading passengers, the bus slowly passed a shut off 8385, and parked beside the streetcar track used by the eastbound 512 to not interfere with the westbound 512. After that, the bus proceeded to block the old bus exit that was used by the 90 and 126 before they used the streetcar exit. The bus then waited for 1243 to leave the shared 126/33 bus bay before heading to the 90 Vaughn bus bay. The bus then turned off. I have no idea what happened, as my Christie bus just arrived and we left the station quickly

    That's great that you made that observation that its not tracking, but it doesn't mean its retired and that it has to go in this thread. Please PM me if you want to continue the discussion between broken trackers and retired units.

    St Louis is in to the final round with Boston with a 5-1 win today. I am being told that St Louis was actually the last place team in 2018 December-2019 January. Very surprising come back.

    Are you serious? Just because a bus is not tracking, that doesn't mean its retired. It could be having problems with it's vision unit. It could be in for repaint at Hillcrest. A few CLRV and ALRV that didn't track started tracking again or went back into service later after they were not tracking. Why is it when a bus suddenly stops tracking, people start saying it's retired? In your own post you don't think its a retirement. So why did you post it? Do not trust the trackers, actually never trust trackers unless we get official word of what is going on with the unit.

    Adding on what I said before, the og at the top of the line with 1514 1519 was indeed 7784. Here is an Instagram post with it from three days ago. Hopefully it's still there tomorrow when I pass by. Some of the panel missing look similar to ones from before. Credit to torontotransitdude. Photo taken on May 14th, 2019.

    That sucks. You wouldn't happen to know the number of the car?

    Glad to see that the TTC has Hawker work cars in service. Pictured here are RT 14-15 which I believe are ex H1 5336 and ex H4 5609 among other work cars. Also here was set 619x which kept speeding up and down one of the tracks. Not sure why.

    Maybe its because Malvern division is super close by, and they don't have to move the vehicles over very far.

    I spoke to two mechanics from malvern today. One who was taking some cords out of 1775 said that any unrebuilt hybrids that show up at markham that aren't stripped yet are to be decomissioned. I asked about the rebuilt hybrids, and both said the same thing. They don't know what they are doing with them, but any that are in the new paint will try and be repaired as they already put money into them. As of right now, 1825 1827 linger at the markham side and are not stripped. Further south is 1667 and a stripped 1794. 1501 1685 are parked down the driveway. Everything else (1824 1612 1781 1775 1779 1778 1799 1807 1596 1513) are stripped in the drive way. Lastly, I have been informed by a soruce that 7784 is currently being stored at Hillcrest.This could be the og that was stored close to 8058 along with a few stripped hybrids. I have no clue what its doing there and if this is 7784. I can only guess that its being used as parts for the 7575 7808 restoration, or parts for the 79 80. Its hard to see it with all the stripped hybrids nearby.
