  1. If they do make it into 2010 I'll be a very happy guy! Now if only the H4's and the Classics would be as lucky...
  2. When is the last GM/MCI Classic going to be retired? I want to ride one before it retires.
  3. When is the last Fishbowl due for retirement? I heard the TTC is not going to have a single one in it's fleet by the end of 2008...is this true? Good o' Fishies...they've had a very succesful life...it will be very sad to see them gone... I don't think so. I've been seeing them 1996 buses all over the place...and according to the CPTDB Wiki, on OBI's page...the Orion VII NG HEV and the Orion V are the only buses still being built by OBI. I thought Orion V production was discontinued years ago?

    Bus Hall of Shame

    It's always the Orion 6's that are affected with problems aren't they...poor buses...

    News: TTC may give Orion the boot...

    But an article I read about the problem said that the affected bus was first seen on the streets in Dec. 2007, and the Orion VII HEV OG was introduced in 2006.

    What is wrong with the Orion 6? I think it's a good bus...especially the CNG ones...

    Oh, never mind. I've found the battery packs (and CNG tanks!) as seperate printouts.

    Paperbus Thread

    On majhost.com, http://www.majhost.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=228981 There is a picture of a paper Orion VII HEV. I've found the Orion VII, but I can't find the battery pack.

    TTC BVE

    You must unzip it to the BVE folder. You can find out how to by opening the .rar file. Double click on it. You will then see a file titled TTC YUS Update readme.doc. Read through the file to learn how to install the route.

    News: TTC may give Orion the boot...

    Can I ask which Orion 7 Hybrid is affected? Is it the original one from 2006 or the next generation one that was first seen on the streets in December 2007?
