  1. there will be a media release on the new system within the next several weeks
  2. two of the 40-footers are out in the lot, and 2679, 2062 and 2063 have been moved outside as well, presumably to make room inside
  3. I've been informed the Novas will finally start showing up 1-2 per day starting the week of March 26, and also the next Orion to be delivered will arrive around the same time although they(Orion) want to use it for the OTE , so it likely won't hit the city roads until mid-April
  4. the tow operator hauling 36 away told me two Classics are at fire station 1 on Morrison Street ( 35 and 37) and the other two went out to station 5 on Sodom Road
  5. this morning I thought I saw an LFS Artic sitting at the NPC garage in Chippawa
  6. 8936 and 8372 are still sitting out back as of this morning
  7. I have found out that the buses will be coming the livery applied, and they are supposed to be orange along the top, but that's all I can say for now
  8. the Novas will now be arriving late March/early April and there will be a media announcement at that about the buses and the name of the new service insert "time" before the word "about", my bad
  9. it was removed several years ago, it was just an ill-fated testbed
  10. night service in NF tonight: 2- 2781 5-2989 6-2986 10-2577 19-2062
  11. some IT news....Talk Wireless was in at the garage today and the new handsfree radios should be all operational within several days and also NFT has gone ahead with it's stop announcement system which should be operational on the VTS buses by June and the rest of the fleet by the fall
  12. be nice to see the VI's go when the Xcelsiors show up
  13. is St.Catharines in the Metrolinx bulk order consortium?
  14. the 09 Novas came with the livery pre-applied
  15. any word on when the Xcelsiors are due in?
  16. I've been told starting mid to late next week start looking for the Nova Artics on the NFT property; no idea if they will have a pre-applied livery or if they're going to be all-white at first
  17. hopefully this will be the use for the Classics however I imagine at least one will be used for Jaws Of Life training and we know hat that means
  18. while we're on the fire department bus topic didn't the St. Catharines FD get two V's for use as shelter buses?
  19. would any signs still be in scrapyard buses?
  20. the GM there told me it was "city policy" not to let people have rollsigns
  21. do you happen to know how i might go about getting an old NFT rollsign?
  22. i was just told by a mechanic this morning it's three Classics going to the Fire Department; on another note NFT Garage staff are in Montreal doing the final inspections on the People Mover units... probably start looking for them next week
  23. just an update....all four remaining Classics have had their licence plates and fareboxes removed and I assume will be towed out of the NFT yard within the next few weeks to make room for the People Mover units
  24. the previously mentioned small bus that arrived is now Welltrans 212, just saw it today on Prince Charles
  25. 118's officially done, it's up on the government auction website along with Welltrans 207
