7444 is apparantly done, as per West-What do you need from the teacher and the class in order to produce your best writing?, first 2001 series D40LF to be retired?

Off-topic, but how do you join the Western Canadian Transit Lounge?

You quoted me, and repeated exactly what I said, word for word.

Not 7155! That was supposed to be the next 7115 :(

But remember that 7115 is still here🙂

So I'm guessing we're hoping 7178 can hold on?

*1996 bus retires*

"That was supposed to be our back-up 7115!"

"And 7115 is still active"!

Literally every damn page

And it'll continue to be so until H7115 finally decides to quit.

Who are the the ones who decide which old bus stays and which ones go?

I under stand that the ones in poorer condition are the first ones to go but who is the one who said "This one goes and this one stays"?

No I didnt

I was asking who made the decision. Not if the busses drove themselves to the scrap yard when they felt like they were missing a couple nuts and bolts.

i was asking if it were the meccanics or a supervisor or someone else that decided which bus goes and which stays

Likely someone trained to inspect the buses regularly, since the factors that go into deciding what condition buses are in - "poorer" or "better" - are more qualitative than quantitative (in scientific, physical terminology).

Only 147 d40lf’s remain in service to date, still about 60 more xn40’s to enter service

by mid next year,

htc/vtc will not have any d40lf’s left

surrey/rtc will have the remaining d40lf’s in service, but i wonder if any of these nova’s will retire the rest of the d40lf fleet?
