  1. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    They might've been hidden somewhere behind, but not viewable from the street.
  2. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    No it was all the way in the back. I don't have the last digit on my photo but that doesn't look like a 4 (7734 being the only other retired 773x).
  3. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    Thanks to super good zoom, I have made the following discoveries at Birchmount: -7804 is parked out back, along with a previously retired 773x (I suspect 7739) and MIA 7740 -7812 and 7827 are parked in the area where 7828 was (also out back), 7812 with a stop notice on its windshield wipers - might be units to look out for -7828 is nowhere to be seen

  5. TTC NovaBus LFS Movement List

    It might not have been allocated to Birchmount in the first place - it's entirely possible it was there to drop off personnel or equipment.
  6. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    Is there a reason why they took the OGs away for scrap so quickly, while 9402, 9411 and 9430 are still languishing at Birchmount?
  7. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    When was this? I spotted 7870 doing circles at Birchmount on February 3.
  8. The Random Thoughts Thread

    I don't want to put this in the FML moments thread as this isn't life-ruining events, but very irritating nonetheless: I thought I forgot my keys, so I waited 15 minutes outside my house for my mom to come home. Checked my pockets again, the keys were at the very bottom of my inner jacket pocket and I could've gone inside much earlier
  9. Today's Special Sightings

    That explains why 1079 went back to Malvern right afterwards? Lots of people hated the seating arrangement on the OGs too, BTW. Didn't stop Eglinton from running those buses exclusively for over a decade.
  10. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    I presume 7606 is long gone as well? 7741 is reporting back at Birchmount; I suspect it was at Eglinton for similar reasons to 7861.
  11. Anyone create their own transit system?

    NEWMAN TRANSIT FEBRUARY 6, 2018 NEWS SERVICE CHANGES 27 To improve connections between Lakeside and Avon, this route, from its terminus at Lakeside Mall, will be extended to Newman Station via northbound on Broad Street, westbound on Davisville Avenue, northbound on Dundas Street, westbound on Mill Street, northbound on Fairport Road, westbound on Lawrence Street, northbound on Flatbush Avenue, westbound on Cliff Street, northbound on Creekbank Road, and westbound on Marlee Avenue. This extention will overlap on the present route 39, which will be cancelled. 32 + 45 These routes will be combined into a singular service, the 45 (Bombardier – Lakeside Mall via Trnava Terminal, Creekbank Heights and River Oaks College). This merger will merely eliminate the "32" designation; in practice, all buses on routes 32 and 45 continue on the second route once completing a run on the first route. 39 This route will be discontinued.
  12. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    7474, 7684 and 7689 must have been the units that were hauled off. 7689 was the bus closest to the gate that Leyland reported.
  13. I'm interested! Should be a good do. You may want to change the date for the payments starting, though - February 7, not March.
  14. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    7881 returned to service earlier this week. I stopped by Eglinton today and didn't see hide nor hair of the previously reported 7474, 7493, 7558, 7606, or 7647.
  15. Thanks for the info. What sorts of problems are "typical Orion VII problems"? Now that I think about it I've heard far more people refer to problems than actually go in depth on what those problems are, but I'd really appreciate some detailed insights.
