  1. 7901 UPDATE I was doing some volunteering for la Grande Guignolée des Médias at the A.-Grégoire garage last night and was able to get some info about the state of 7901. Here's the scoop; -7901 remains unoperable at this time due to lack of parts (obsolescence of parts due to the age of the vehicle) -Some parts will need to be machined in house in order for the bus to be made "operational" again -Even though this may sound like retirement, worry no more! the bus is nowhere near retirement and is still a (the) part of the historic fleet. -The bus is being stored outside, but is located under a canopy that protects it from snow & rain. PLEASE UPDATE WIKI IF NEEDED

    STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    It is with great sadness... That I announce the retirement of STO 9131, 9133 and 9224 These coaches were found stripped of parts at the STO Hull garage last night around 11:00 during volunteering for La Grande Guignolée des Médias and confirmed dead by a supervisor. These coaches will be forever remembered for their longevity and as very reliable and comfortable. Please take the time to remember these coaches. Rest in pieces 9131, 9133 and 9224 We were unable to obtain pictures of 9224, but it has been confirmed as dead. It can be seen through the driver's window in the second picture No funeral will be held Here are the descriptions for the pictures below: 1- 9131 awaits scrapping on "death row" (notice the seat under the front wheel) 2- 9133 await scrapping stripped of all valuable parts (notice 9224 can be seen [also retired] through the drivers window) 3- 9133 is seen from another angle (again, notice the seat under the front wheel) 4- The front mirror of 9133 is seen, almost broken off. More photos of retired Classics and of 7901 can be found on my Flickr photostream. Could a wiki editor please mark these coaches RETIRED. Thank you

    Own any bus

    Yeah, right... Dry WET coast environment, (not) free from rust or corrosion

    Own any bus

    I'm thinking an OC Transpo D60LF, a brand new Nova LFSe or an original STO New Look or Classic (NOT Ex-Calgary)

  8. Oohh! Nice pics! I like to say ''You learn something new every day!'' Well today, I learnt about STO Rollsign history! Thank you for the info!
  9. Hey! Anybody know what the shortest route (in terms of distance) is on the STO network (other than school routes)? I've got the 52-53 in mind but I am probably wrong...
  10. AHHHHHH! Thank you for that explanation! Totally makes sense!!!! That station diagram really helped!
