  1. Ladies and gentlemen: New Flyer has introduced the Xcelsior CHARGE Next Generation (NG). Kinda obviously Orion claimed the name first. https://insideevs.com/news/495307/new-flyer-xcelsior-charge-ng/amp/
  2. Errr... I need to elaborate it what happened to that original bus. According to the wiki, it got rejected for some reason. The same way Brampton rejected the original #0609 due to minor damage and Woodstock acquired it. A new bus of the same number had to be built.
  3. Has anyone heard about #8789? According to its old VIN 4RKYL82J6H9776065, it was quickly rejected and sold to Autobus Brunet as #7004 and currently is owned by Autobus Galland as #7176 which still has the TTC specs and a Ontario Yield sticker. The new #8789 had to be produced with its VIN number 4RKYL82J3H9776248.
  4. #1418 will be out for a while as it was involved in a collision with a car on Runnymede and Colbeck while doing the 71 RUNNYMEDE. Damage to the bus is on the drivers side.
  5. On topic of route movements, I have complied the list of routes before Comstock division opened on March 31, 2002.

  7. My bad. I was just curious if anyone confirmed those are the blue night route assignments (not finalized yet).
  8. If anyone may confirm this or not, these will be the Blue Night routes to be serviced next board: 300 BLOOR-DANFORTH - Birchmount, Eglinton, Mount Dennis, Queensway 301 QUEEN - Birchmount, Russell, Mount Dennis 302 KINGSTON ROAD-McCOWAN - Malvern 304 KING - Leslie, Queensway, Russell 306 CARLTON - Roncesvalles, Eglinton, McNicoll 307 BATHURST - Wilson 310 SPADINA - Leslie 312 ST. CLAIR-JUNCTION - Wilson 315 EVANS-BROWN'S LINE - Queensway 320 YONGE - Eglinton, Mount Dennis, Wilson 322 COXWELL - Birchmount 324 VICTORIA PARK - Birchmount 325 DON MILLS - Eglinton 329 DUFFERIN - Mount Dennis 332 EGLINTON WEST - Mount Dennis 334 EGLINTON EAST - Eglinton 335 JANE - Mount Dennis 336 FINCH WEST - Arrow Road, McNicoll 337 ISLINGTON - Queensway 339 FINCH EAST - Arrow Road, McNicoll 341 KEELE - Mount Dennis 343 KENNEDY - McNicoll 352 LAWRENCE WEST - Arrow Road 353 STEELES - McNicoll 354 LAWRENCE EAST - Eglinton 363 OSSINGTON - Wilson 365 PARLIAMENT - Birchmount 384 SHEPPARD WEST - Arrow Road 385 SHEPPARD EAST - Malvern 395 YORK MILLS - Malvern 396 WILSON - Mount Dennis
  9. Overall @Articulated, this is TTC’s acquisition of buses from New Flyer (technically) in total (despite acquiring ARBOC). Also, #W244 and #W282 are sporting the LFLRV livery.
  10. For reasons unknown, does anybody know why buses #1149 and #1314 visited the LFS majority McNicoll? Looks to me either trainings, movement or repairs despite they will not be receiving any Orion VII products anytime soon. @bus_7246 @Bus_Medic @FabianColeyLOVESBUSES @Xtrazsteve
  11. From a email that @6254 sent me today. It would appear #8942, a Birchmount bus, was the first Fishbowl and TTC bus overall to receive the new CLRV livery without the grey sides in November 1995. It was used as a donation Christmas bus at Kennedy a month later. Perhaps somebody has to edit the wiki.
  12. Sorry to bump a nearly decade old topic but I found some new terms to go with it: - Abomination: Referring to TTC’s fleet of 40 foot Nova LFS - Potato: A name used on TTC's Proterra Catalyst Electric buses - Spicy: Mostly used on TTC's active fleet of Orion VIIs - 8888 - Lucky 8, used on TTC LFS bus #8888.
  13. Arw>McN: #3250, #3278, #3304, #3307, #3331 Mal>Arw: #3480, #3548, #3550
  14. #W245 is now wearing the new paint. Spotted it last week.
  15. I saw that coming but thank you. When push comes to shove, does anybody have any route allocation lists between January 4, 1993 to February 17, 1996? I know there are a number of notable routes assigned to the following divisions: - 54 LAWRENCE EAST - Birchmount and Eglinton - 66 PRINCE EDWARD - Lansdowne - 86 SCARBOROUGH - Malvern - 95 YORK MILLS - Birchmount and Wilson - 161 ROGERS ROAD - Eglinton
  16. I guess Mount Dennis won’t run any Orion VII HEVs anytime soon on the 927 since they tend to be troublesome when they were at Arrow Road. Would it be possible to swap Malvern’s LFS HEVs for all of their 12/13/1400s there?
  17. With the 927 HIGHWAY 27 EXPRESS going to Mount Dennis, would it be possible for Malvern to send their LFS Hybrids to Mount Dennis? Orion hybrids still don’t tend to work on the 427.
  18. I guess with that said, McNicoll would likely do some 320 YONGE NIGHT runs since a number of buses come from 51 and 122 as well as 17. Other night routes are likely to move with their parent daytime routes to new garages but the 334 EGLINTON EAST NIGHT remains in doubt since New Eglinton will likely keep the route despite 86 and 116 are going to Malvern unless Malvern will supply the 334 with one or two buses.
  19. Yes that’s me. I was too lazy to see it but thanks for the heads up.
