    New Flyer D60LF Retirement / Storage watch

    Yes it is. I drove 8022 and hoped it was retired already.

    I hope so too. I lived in Edmonton in 2008/09 when they shut their system down, saddest thing ever...☚ī¸ Their attitude towards trolleys were bad, city management were anti-trolley.

    And it will be a very big decision on the trolleys, replace them with new ones or retire the system in favor of battery electric buses ...

    I've been told by the higher up at CMBC that the new XDE60's are replacement for the D60LF's and expansion. Yes the D60LF's will be gone very quick, the numbers are quickly dropping at RTC. So ride and take pictures of them while you can.
  5. 12021 is apparently a CNG! Look at the bottom right at the advertisement! 😀

    New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    8036 is back on the active tracks. So all that repairs to keep for a short period of time.

    I had 8081 yesterday on the 49, so I was the second-last one to drive it. My relief was the final driver 🙂

    Yes she was pulled over on the shoulder, I saw her with two road supervisor vans, they deemed it an emergency situation. It took them about 25 minutes to get to her and the passengers were freaking out. So that's 7431's tragic end.

    Yeah, no point sinking money into them at this point. 8036 was having issues with it's front tires/axle, it was wobbling violently at highway speeds. Let's see if that one ever sees service again.

    7431 blew it's transmission yesterday on hwy 99 about a kilometer east of Ladner Trunk rd while doing a 352, I talked to the driver who had the breakdown so I wasn't surprised to hear this!
