Nice! Make sure you stock up on paper towels before I come to Winnipeg because you'll have to clean the drool off the bus. LOL :P

Last night while looking at newspapers on microfilm, I saw a photo of Classic 308 and D40 164 on the tarmac at Winnipeg's airport. The issue was from September 12, 2001, after the terrorist attacks at the airport acting as shelters. I'll get photos as soon as I could. :)

Is 694 still in service? That one did the honors for me when I arrived in Winnipeg for the 2001 Bus History Association convention.

Yes. It has been refurbished, and is still in service.

D901* 100s were all D901s. 340-399, 630-699 and all 800 series are Winnipegs D40s. Speaking of D40s:

Drove 390 this morning. What a coincidence!

Did you manage to see if it still has the upside-down Winnipeg logo on the front?

Honestly, I only pay attention to its mechanical condition.

Rode 680 home. Weird how its internal stop display thingy is in Times New Roman compared to Tahoma font...

Some displays do this randomly and I'm not sure why. Programming maybe?

Tried to get a picture of an 1994 D40 with 24 Ness (no express) as its destination sign, but the bus kept moving and when I managed to catch it, the driver told me "they don't like getting their pictures taken". Seems I have to try a bit better. Note: if you ARE that driver reading this, sorry about that and anyways, the pictures turned out so blurry that you couldn't see anyone in the front of the bus :)

Also, 812 on the 58, still running! The lighting in that one is sure bright

Managed to spot (and ride) 863 today! Surprised that theres an 800-series D40 past 858 confirmed operating. The seats were comfy, and sadly, I couldn't get an inside picture because there was alot of people on the bus (and it was on my iPhone...)
