#9535 is up next

http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item5d44d3d3c2

The head has been removed and the cylinders look pretty rusty. Also judging by the amount of grime and moss on the outside of the bus I'd say its been sitting a while.

According to OBA only 9530 31 34 show to have been in service in recent times. According to the SIP, it shows there to be 7 members of this class in service, yet all the Gillig Phantom's that were suppose to have been retired have dropped off as well. That leaves 9525 29 32 33 36 as of yet unaccounted for.

9536 is still in service.

One of the new "crash energy management" cars was spotted in Thunder Bay, ON being prepared for shipment to Seattle.  

Here's a picture I took a couple weeks ago at the Lynnwood Transit Center of a 2004 D60LF.

the area around the front sign on ST's new Enviro500s is painted white, instead of the black the older E500s had

Pierce always painted out their retired ST coaches, Metro and CT I don't think did. I have pictures of Retired and Sold ST coaches with the livery intact (sans logos). The decals themselves have been on there for years and are probably not easy to scrape off. I'm sure its easier just to spray over the whole lot and call it good. Who bought the one that's in B.C. and where's it at?

Thanks for the info :) The unit is in Surrey, BC.

Some questions about the University link:

1) Will buses travel to University of Washington Station via the tunnel?

2) Will they operate two or three car trains when University link opens?

3) What will the frequencies be when it opens?

Random questions:

1) Have they started construction of the North gate link yet?

2) Has there been any recent talk about extended light rail to Federal way?

New update when they aspect the University link to open some time in August or September.

1) Will buses travel to University of Washington Station via the tunnel?
Are you referring to the newly dug tunnels or the existing DSTT? The new tunnels are train only. The DSTT will remain joint ops until U-Link's headways make joint ops unfeasable.
2) Will they operate two or three car trains when University link opens?
Initially two but up to four as demand increases.
3) What will the frequencies be when it opens?
Not decided yet. Initially frequencies will still allow for joint ops in the DSTT. It's not decided which routes, if any, will initially move up to the surface.
1) Have they started construction of the North gate link yet?

Page 129: Planned Fleet: 2015 Five 42ft Double Deckers!!!!!!

It looks like it will replace the remaining D60LF CT has, as they show those will retire in 2014.

I'm guessing you're referring to the very last 1999/2000 D60LF that are in Sound Transit's fleet? Community Transit is also ordering 17 new units to replace their 1998 D60LF buses.
