TTC non-Fishbowl Fleet Nostalgia
Kobayashi posted a topic in Greater Toronto AreaSimilar to the GM fleet reminiscing, I created this thread to share the memories and photos of your experience with the TTC's non-GM Fishbowl fleet prior to 2002 such as Classics, Flyers, New Flyers, Orions (I, II, III, V, VI and pre-refurbished VII), and NovaBUS RTS. If anyone has photos prior to December 31, 2016, feel free to post your old photos from old shoe boxes, slides, even library microfiche or whatever is there. Just don't claim that they are your own if they are not. The following photos are sampled below from my collection: Thanks to @Grapejuice for this inspiration for this thread.
Cummins VTB-903 Engine
Detroit Diesel 6V92TA posted a topic in ALL VEHICLESI don't know much about the Cummins VTB-903 engine. It seems that there also existed a VT-903. I have only seen the VTB-903 be used in Flyer D900 buses. Does anyone have more info?

Flyer D900 Series (1979-1981)
Benjamin posted a topic in ALL VEHICLESI have some thoughts about the Flyer D900 series of buses. Mainly, about their engines: I would think the mega-rare Cummins VTB903 diesel engine was the only hi-power option for the USA-spec buses until the 6V92TA was made available and when the D900 was being phased out in favor of the D901, since unlike the GMC RTS II Series 03 and the Grumman Flxible 870, the Detroit Diesel 8V71 engine was not cataloged (the lo-power 6V71 was, though). I would think the VTB903 was not available in Canada given that country's preference toward the 6V71N Detroit Diesel. ~Ben
