Wonder if they will be replacing two Eldorado's or two HSR Nova's

I would think it would be the two EZ Riders. They don't necessarily need them. It may be a strategy to standardize the fleet.

Stratford has acquired another second hand LFS. Bus 9773 is Ex-OC Transpo for sure and possibly 9731 which was the Wifi bus. It is replacing bus 9768 (Ex-HSR 9719) which was retired back in 2014.

No it is not replacing 9768, it was purchased to replace one of the 2004 Eldorado buses (one of 0456-0457) due to severe frame corrosion issues. The bus was purchased for $35.550 plus HST.

It is important not to assume as that's how incorrect/false information usually spreads.

Stratford has acquired another second hand bus. They acquired a used New Flyer D40LF numbered 0337. The lady driver wasn't impressed with me taking photos of her bus, she called dispatch 🤣.

Is it a lease or was it purchased? And was it painted or all white?

Never seen the day where Stratford buys a New Flyer. A photo perhaps to show or is she plain white?

It was parked at Cityview a good month ago or so with the Stratford decals and an advertisement. Must have been there for some repairs/warranty if that was part of whatever deal was made. Looks sharp!

I wonder if it is a lease until 1169 returns from repairs. If they bought it outright, that would be very interesting since it's mainly Nova and one or two EZ Riders.

1169 was parked beside the garage under a tarp.

Took a trip down with a few friends. Can confirm that 0761 is the last EZ Rider in their fleet. 9766 is also now retired as well. According to the supervisor, 9767 might be next to go. 0862 went for an E-Test after we arrived. Their terminal is very friendly for photos if the sun is in the right spot. 0337 is a lease for a few more months.
