    I saw a bus.


    TTC 8123 on Wellington St. outside of Metro Hall while I took a walk into town on my lunch break.

    It’s dead, Jim.

    Hmmm. My foamer/trekkie radar just picked up a hit. Think about it, you go into the movie theatre and you see Star Trek the Motion Picture VII: The mission for Orion.

    Get this. So it will be almost like Star Trek IV: the Voyage home. But instead of searching for a whale they search for an Orion VII, and it will take place just after the Original TV show series, so all the classic characters will be there. They would then use the mighty power of the Orion VII to defeat the evil foamerons, with their shiny, brightly coloured vests which deflect attacks except for the Orion VII. They attack with loud and annoying talk of their long and forgotten over lord the TTC. Not only would this appeal to foamers because they want to see the excellent Orion VII in action, but trekkies would foam (or whatever the Star Trek version of foam is) to see this movie too because it’s based on the first series. Massive success. ViacomCBS should be calling any second now.


    He also knows when a bus is dead too.

    3 months ago, I received a photo of the Peter Witt at Harvey shops from a friend. However, that wasn't what caught my eye. 

    On the right corner features a paint-stripped CLRV. Either this is 4089 ungergoing some sort of restoration, or we'll soon be seeing the other 2 running around in a yellow livery like their PPC Rail-grinder predecessors several year's ago.

    But I'm not one who can confirm everything and anything. I'm only sharing what I see/think. Have a great April Fools :D


    4089 isn’t paint stripped, it’s actually still wearing a wrap for a tea brand it’s had since it went out of service.

    My sources say that the unit has been barely touched since the unit arrived at Hillcrest sometime in late 2019.

    There hasn’t been updated. My apologies. The only buses that should be in the list are 1314 & 1376 (hasn’t tracked since March 8 

    No problem I forgot I reported them as MIA and suspect other people did too lol.

    1376 is retired

    1274 has returned to service, currently on the 39

    Yes 1376 is retired I spotted it at Hillcrest earlier this year. I haven’t passed by Hillcrest in a very long time so I don’t know if it’s still there or if there are new units like 1278 1282 etc.

    From my search, latest post I found was 1.5 years.  I only went as far back as page 153.  Page 164 was the latest post in my search (end of October 2019), but it feels like it's been much longer than that.  Would also be interesting to hear if 8142 and 1367 still have their driver side Diamond & Diamond wraps.  I haven't seen them in a while.

    I reported 1229 late if I recall, I spotted it about a week or so earlier and I then saw it again on the 27th, which is when I reported it.

    1367 should still have its wrap, I recall seeing it either late last year or earlier this year.

    Both buses are likely placed in storage not decommissioned. The wiki on the pages doesn’t even mentioned the storage portion on the units. Anyone from the maintenance dept would have to confirm if any of the two are off the roster since the trackers on #1242 and #1362 are still on despite the absence of #1206.

    The trackers on 1242 and 1362 aren’t active, they are turned off. After a certain amount of time if the bus doesn’t report new data, the tracker will no longer show the last tracker location like in the case of 1206.

    You strangely made the same case with 1346 a while back which was already confirmed retired.
