    AH t15 my mistake. Nice signs and box I might add! Yeah, it's a shame also that HCRR got rid of their bus collection too. Not many examples of the D700 or E700s left.

    Sweet. I used to have the side equivalent of this. All TCs had the same sign and I believe this was the T6 revision. B&W signs appeared around 1983-84.

    RIP Pete Shelley. Former Buzzcocks lead singer, solo singer and early computer programmer. One of the first to release an openly gay anthem with "Homosapien" in 1981.

    It is a secret underground bunker at the base of the Royal Bank tower (I guess it's not so secret) where the TTC assigns their runs and also mints their tokens.

    When those Orion V lifts were new, I thought the push bar was the stupidest thing I'd seen to that point and that it wouldn't last. WRONG!

    LOL you got the numbers mixed up. 8051 was the one based at Arrow in the last days. It would show up on the 35 or the 36 (all branches) mostly. I never rode it on the 35 though. By that time all the ex-STCUM GMs were on there. Yeah, I wish we had those tracking apps back then. I used to go to the Transportation Offices and look at the run boards to locate a bus, LOL. 8058 was the one at Malvern and I only rode that once back in 99 when there were 3 rollsign buses on the 129 during rush hour. Last time I saw 8058 it was on the hoist at Malvern being rebuilt.

    The HSTs had so many engine problems it's not even funny. There were no less than 3 different types. Remarkably, the HSTs are still in service today.

    I see your D40LF and raise you the D40-90s. LOL But yeah, I used to live right next to the Islington night bus and I never got any sleep because of those. AT least I knew what time it was overnight whenever they drove by so that was better than an alarm clock for work.

    What I do like about the newer buses is they don't give me migraines like the old ones did. 😂

    Any bus can last if there's enough investment in them. At some point it costs more to keep fixing than to buy new.
