    STM 38-XXX Delivery Watch / Sightings

    This afternoon I saw 38-005 on the 125 and 38-017 on the 24 downtown. Though not all of the first quarter of 38s are at Frontenac since 38-020 was tracking on the 174. Also, 38-003 was at Frontenac but seems to have been sent to Mont-Royal as it was tracking on the 711 Sunday and on the 51 today. I personally haven't seen 38s 007, 008, and 022 in person or tracking anywhere in a while so not sure where those are. But the rest of the 38s up to 025 I've seen either tracking or in person consistently on Frontenac routes so I think it's safe to say they're officially at Frontenac (especially if they are getting the red bumper).

    22-339 with blue interior lighting arriving at JAC from the A20 overpass at 16:45. I would've waited for it if I knew it was coming instead of running to catch 38-074 on the 16:44 departure!

    22-328 doing the 217E at Ste-Marie / Meaney at 7:37. 22-288 doing the 419W at the same place and time (got on it).

    Took 22-337 on the 419E (15:30 from JAC). It had planibus schedules for the 192 inside.

    Yeah that's what I suspect too. I hope SL also gets some of their 26 and 27s since they have none and they're the best sounding buses in the fleet imo. Otherwise that wouldn't be a very good trade. 31-220 was probably a Stinson extra. Did you see it around 8:00? There were quite a few LaSalle 28s and Stinson 37s tracking on SL routes this morning too. --- LaSalle's 24-289 is currently on the 200.

    Personally, I think that a retirement watch thread is a dedicated thread for any sightings of soon to be retired buses. This way we can see which buses are still in service and it avoids clutter in the Today's Sightings thread. Looking back at the old classics and 1st gen retirement watch threads, they were also used to post any sightings of those "endangered" buses. --- 22-221, 238, 243, 251, 264, 265, 280, 283, 287, 288, 293, 297, 299, 327, 329, 336, 342, 357, 371, 377, 381 parked outside CT SL. Bold buses indicate that they are not marked as inactive/garage on Gerbil's spreadsheet. 22-342 had its rear bottom hatch open.

    That's really strange! It's still tracking on the 108 right now. It's out until the 1:10 90 departure from Atwater (108-13). --- Frontenac buses 31-079, 160, 190, 199 and 32-031 were parked outside CT SL tonight.

    Yesterday: I took 22-275 on the 419 (7:30 departure from Fairview). It has a vertical white strip of tape on the front door. Currently, it's tracking on the 48. 22-273 was on the 196N at Louis A Amos / Onésime Gagnon at 15:40. It's back from St-Denis.

    Yesterday: St-Laurent's 30-236 was on the 405 in the afternoon. Frontenac's 32-024 was on the 71. I took 28-113 on the 220 (14:30 departure from Du Collège). It's missing a Novabus logo on the front interior. To my surprise, the bus was quite full! There were 6 buses parked as the 460 at Dorval around 16:10: Stinson's 24-307 left at 16:10 as a St-Denis extra (460-44). 23-219 LaSalle's 26-008 St-Denis' 31-089 36-024 37-103 All 460 departures from 16:15 to 17:02 are operated by Legendre or Stinson so 26-008 and 31-089 must have been running out of one of those divisions. Today: 23-203 and 237 were on the 211.

    22-341 arriving at Beaconsfield as the 401 at 7:47. I took 22-379 on the 411W from Beaconsfield at 7:51.

    23-234 was on the 405 this morning. I took LaSalle's 28-031 on the 419 this afternoon. Frontenac's 32-024 was on the 425. Along with that, 32-019 and 021-023 were tracking on LaSalle routes (112, 106, 411, and 113 respectively). Frontenac might be freeing some space for some more hybrids.

    22-242 doing the 13:00 419 from JAC. 22-201 looks like it's going to be a camera violation (140-02, out until 1:30 140 departure from Sauvé).

    St-Denis' 29-036 was far from home as it was on the 203 during AM rush. And right now it's tracking on the 428!

    22-201 was on the 204 leaving Fairview at 9:27. It was doing Legendre extra 204-07 (interlines from the 460W and does a round trip on the 204).
