8354 is on the 105 Dufferin North right now 

It went to Queensway with 8308 last night. I assume it must’ve been a shuttle for the mechanic driving 8308.

8005 & 8010 have been transferred to Wilson. Both are still ghost white, and 8005 has an empty interior. 8005 also has had its presto readers removed. 8010 still has the old presto card readers

8303 and 8304 have moved to Queensway

Wow didn’t think Wilson would lose the 3G orions this is shocking even tho there was rumours of it happening

At this rate, if all 8300s move to Queensway and 8100s remain for a while even after the 8000s are finished, will #3321-#3329, #3342-#3369 move to McNicoll and Arrow Road respectively meaning 12 Airport LFS remain? 
 

Come to think of it, what is going to be replacing the 83xx at Wilson? I think Arrow's 35/36xx or Nova LFS diesels from Eglinton, Birchmount or Arrow.

Remember there are still 30 LFS HEVs that haven't entered service yet so those will be the replacements for the 8300s going to Queensway

When the 7300 was about to retire, the 8300 was planned for Queensway back then. But management decided to send novas to Queensway instead.

Novas will last at queensway longer than the orion's there. 

Looks like Queensway at this rate might be the last garage with orion's. 

I'm actually still surprised orion's are still at arrow. They were initial on loan , temp swap.

Maybe not all the 8300 will move compared to the 8100s. But when the Ebuses come in, I expect obviously another set of major movement. 

And with summer coming, I expect a reduce demand for.bsjes untill Sept.

Moving to a Queensway retirement home lol

We're getting shafted once again I'm guessing 8300-8334 at the very least are moving to Queensway to replace the remaining 8000s.

However in an alternate universe it would be nice to see LFS HEV #7130 delivered here and enter service on a route like 123 Sherway

Malvern was in this position about 15+ years ago, where the oldest in the fleet spent their final months or years before retirement. I wasn’t complaining like you are tho as it was nice to often be riding the oldest equipment in the entire fleet just before retirement.

Queensway has seen multiple changes in its fleet in recent years. Eglinton by contrast has seen only a couple over a span of a decade and a half. It’s been practically all LFS since the OG VIIs retired, and before they retired it was 100% OG VII for more than 10 years. Sure the BYDs are there but there aren’t many of them, they haven’t seen much service, and I loathe the very sight of them. If you hate the NG VIIs so much, they should send them to Eglinton to give their operators something different to drive. I’m sure they’d be more grateful to drive them than you are to ride.

Also it’s been said many times that there are height restrictions at Queensway which prevents certain models in the fleet from being based there. I don’t know why this is so hard for you to understand.

8305, 8307 and 8309 has arrived at Queensway 

8306 is enroute to Queensway 

I suppose it's been determined that clearance isn't a problem?

Welcome to hand-me-down Wilson garage!
