    OC Bus Spottings

    No one cares. This is probably one of the most pointless posts I've ever seen on this board.

    STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    Figured I'd share a few pics! As you can probably tell, I'm just starting out with film photography. This outing was also my first time using black and white film and shooting fully manual. Needless to say, some of these are definitely not in focus, haha.

    False alarm - it was in fact 9204. I must have mistyped or noted the number incorrectly.

    Yeah, I noticed later that it doesn't show as being active on your list. It's possible it was 9204. I took some film pics - I'll have to double check those once they're developed!

    OC Bus Spottings

    It's actually this canopy, which extends just a little bit past the curb line. Although the lane is quite wide, a few summers ago a DD hit the canopy while deadheading and the bus was damaged (I forget which unit it was).

    4403 was in service on the 511 a little while ago. Spotted it going south on Bathurst at Harbord at 14:45. Tried to get a couple of quick pics as it went by but they didn't turn out so well.

    Double decker bus order

    Came across this picture on Instagram back at the beginning of January but I forgot to share it (the uploader of the photo has since made their profile private): It shows 4249 being scrapped presumably this past summer. Looks like this bus caught fire back in 2013 (here are a few photos). Wiki editors: note that 4249's retirement isn't listed in the Wiki. On a somewhat related note, I posted back in the summer that I observed 4201 being sent to scrap. There are a few pages on the Wiki that still could be updated to show this information

    GOA transit news, info etc

    Route 188 service was funded by the developer as part of an early transit service agreement, if I'm not mistaken. In other words, it was always intended to be temporary.

    Spotted 4409 wrapped with an ad for a car company (BMW?) on Spadina today just after 3pm. Tried to grab some quick pics but I was on my bike at a red light so they didn't turn out so well. I'm sure someone will get some better shots soon. In the meantime, here's a quick look:
