  2. I believe it may be moreso for dispatchers etc to easily decipher an electric bus from a diesel bus than a driver or mechanic.
  3. There's currently a trinity rail express bilevel sitting in windsor by central and ec row on the CP tracks. I was too far to see a number but it looks freshly painted.
  4. Just out of curiosity, what is the updated fleet count at now? Id imagine its gone higher than the 195 that it says on the wiki. IIRC wasnt there an order or two that had expansion buses included? Not counting the current one.

    441 was NOT removed from service in May of 2022 like it says in their bid listing. I have pictures of it driving in service on November 3rd. It also lists the bus as a 2002 when in fact it is a 2004.
  6. I guessing here, but wouldnt the freight locos being used by CN/CP(like a dash 9, SD70, ET44 etc) be heavier than an MPI?( I say this because im assuming CN or CP use the same line). Like I said, im guessing. I dont follow rail stuff as closely as others do on this board.

    I forgot I seen 8049 around forest glade and lauzon parkway early this morning but I don't know if it was in service or not.

    So far the Orion VIIs still in service are as follows, and there may be more that I haven't seen yet. They're always on the 700 routes, the school extras. 435, 436, 438, 439, 441, 442, 443 and 444.

    There was an article recently stating that ridership is back to pre covid and a part of that was ridership is still on the rise, it is up 95% - 105%. So there could be a ridership increase on the 25 as well. Or maybe even an event resulting in higher ridership so they added one bus to compensate.

    So I guess the 25 is extra busy today,8023 and 8024 are on it like usual, plus 617!

    The 24 new buses will be in service by the end of the year. Im guessing they'll be starting service soon, maybe within the next month?

    That would be because storage does not mean retired. A bus can only be retired when it was been replaced by another bus that had been purchased to replace it.
