For the Wiki-

8142 has new skirt panels and accents

8144 has new skirt panels and accents

8143 has not been seen with new panels or accents but I assume that this redo will happen to this bus and All Orion 5's in the DRT operating system.

Thankyou,

Done.

Done.

Unit 8145 has been retired since April 2012. I forgot how to edit on wiki and won't bother to touch it. Also I notice that it states it's a 1992 model, it's actually a 1994 model and the year digit in the VIN is incorrect. According to the Region's RFP document it's a 1994 Ontario Bus Industries, Orion V (05.501) with a 6V92 engine and Voith transmission. The VIN for this bus is 2B1569771R5031872.

Here, the best I can do is a screen shot. As for a link you have to be a registered vendor with the region to view documents. You could probably make up a bogus corporation name or something. lol

Here is the builder's plate to indicate that it was built in May 1994. Sorry for the blur, it was hard taking a picture of it.

All of Oshawa Orion's are currently being used as driver switch-offs and School Specials. There only useful on a few routes suchas:

404 College Hill

405 Central Park

413 GO Shuttle

420 DC/UOIT

421 Townline

and The Clarington Routes.

I haven't seen 141 or 143 out in service since the XD's arrived... I guess they await there fate.
