I saw a bus, signed 59 Maple Leaf, turning from Strathnairn Ave. to northbound Keele. I don't think there is any short turn there. Simplest explanation is an operator got lost and went down Kincourt to Castlefield, instead of west along Ingram, and was getting back to route. 😡

I saw the same thing too! I didn’t think to pay attention to the bus number, but it definitely was a Wilson bus on the 59B. Might be an unplanned detour

It's interesting to see Wilson buses, in particular NG Orion diesels, on routes like Maple Leaf and Lansdowne. I wonder how operators are liking the branch up Caledonia, dealing with all the impatient pickup-driving contractors.

I remember when Maple Leaf was all 7900s with the odd RTS.

Speaking of 7900s, 7933 heading Kiplingwards on an evening 123B Shorncliffeerway run.

Keep in mind that Wilson used to have Lansdowne before Mt Dennis opened. I remember the V CNGs & VI CNGs passing by Earlscourt loop, and remembering them at the bus bay outside of Yorkdale Mall

Another streetcar island on Lakeshore got schmucked.  This time it was the eastbound stop at Legion Road. Part of the fence and the safety light got taken out.

Somehow after a rough day at work there was something comical about the safety light sitting there face down on the ground flashing at the pavement that I had to shoot a couple seconds of video of it.

7910 up early this morning, running NIS northbound on 427. Pretty fast for an old bus. I don't think I've seen this one in a while. Doesn't mean it was not going out, just not going out where I could see it.

Yeah but there's no video, only audio and a blank screen.

Saw TTC 1376, 1348, 9003, and 8573 at HC today. 1348 isn't in the pictures but it's missing the rear engine cover and rear doors.

Visual sighting, confirmed with a tracker since I was too far to see the vehicle number:

TTC 8362 is on the 41 Keele route, tracking as 8 run

10:50a: 8075 is helping out on the 171 as a supplementary bus to the regular bus due to traffic and construction

12:04p: 3518 is doing an in service training run with an instructor and trainees on the 35A Jane northbound, at Wilson

12:16p: 8305 is on the 120 Calvington. I spotted it in the turning lane from Keele onto Wilson, en route to Wilson Stn

TTC 7946 putting the boot in, up the 427, on the way to the 'Saug, on 900. This does not show up under the route number, but Transee reports the bus itself at Terminal One now.

TTC 7974 on a much more mundane used-to-be-Shorncliffe 123C.
