  1. It was doing a 41 Mohawk at the time. Judging by the location, that's west on Mohawk towards Upper James. I'm not sure the state of it so I can't say for certain if it can be repaired. I've seen buses come back from worse.
  2. On the Vicinity, there's an AC unit on the rooftop and your version is missing the marker lights on the bumper. For future versions, I would also suggest the "stock" variant without the EASB bumpers and the three lengths (27.5', 30' and 35'). Also of note, the AC unit on Vicinity buses built after 2017 have the Spheros logo on it. Also would it be possible to request an HSR version, with CNG propulsion? And perhaps an Orangeville Transit one (either 201601, 201602 or 201801)?
  3. I'm honoured but I don't really want to replace anybody's photos. That's just in bad taste.
  4. Is it a lease or was it purchased? And was it painted or all white?
  5. It would be because of not wishing to compete with VIA Rail yes?
  6. Apparently as of, at least January, the 30' Midis have been numbered 72430 and 72431. As for the two 35' Midis, I have no idea as yet.
  7. There are a few artics that have advertising on it. 0615, one of the 900s and a couple of the 1400s have it on the driver side of the trailer section.
  8. Kasper announced via their Facebook page that they have picked up two buses. The buses in question are the two 2012 Stallion Sunliner SLC830 that originally belonged to Saskatchewan Transportation Company. They retain their STC numbers 900 and 901 as well. I believe they will be used primarily for the Thunder Bay-White River line run.
  9. I believe they retired them due to the contractor change and the uncertainty surrounding it. I could be wrong though.
  10. I can do those if you wish. If they haven't been done already.
  11. Does anybody know if Ontario Northland has received their order of MCI J3500s?
  12. http://bus.gl/en/about-us/fleet/ They actually posted a fleet list on their website. This is a neat thing.
  13. They have been less than satisfied with the XD40s from what I've heard.
  14. I think it's either a Superior, a Champion or a Coachmen on what appears to be an old Dodge chassis. I may be wrong.
  15. I forgot to mention this earlier but when @Seashore_518203 and I were driving back from Ottawa, we passed a Red Deer D40LFR being trailered on the 401 near Belleville. I'm not sure where that particular unit is off to but I'd have to guess Cape Breton or perhaps one of the Exo properties.
  16. It takes time to commission a bus and prepare it for service. Multiply that by 17 and that's why it is taking so long.
  17. Chuck is on the rear of the Van Hools. On the way back from Ottawa, we followed one along the 401.
  18. The tour guide told us at St Laurent that the line of D60LFs were preparing for refurbishment. I could be wrong on that though.
  19. HSR, where I'm from, has had a mix of Compressed Natural Gas powered buses from 1992 onwards. Our first were the converted GM New Looks, then the 9100/9200 Orion Vs, 1999 Orion VIs, 2002 Ford ELF cutaways and 1996, 1998 and 2002-03 New Flyer C40LFs. In 2015, HSR overhauled the CNG fuelling facility and currently we have 29 New Flyer XN60 artics, 11 Grande West Vicinity CNG 30 foot buses and 97 NovaBus LFS Natural Gas 40 footers. We're locked in with CNG until at least 2021 because of the work on the fuelling station. We re-invested in CNG at the time when the price of CNG was less than the price of diesel.
  20. Well you're not. I can see that. They are in process of refurbishing the D60LFs in house.
  21. From my understanding, members can submit a short survey which will be available within a few weeks with suggestions and feedback for future conventions. That's what was voted on during the annual meeting.
  22. Having rested after the convention, I can tell you that was an excellent convention. Credit for the success of this convention rightfully goes to OC Transpo, STO, Cornwall TransIt, Leduc Bus Lines, 417 Bus Lines, Brockville Transit, Transcollines and Kingston Transit and, of course, the executive board of the BHA. I look forward to Iowa in 2020.
