That was for Leslie/Greenwood, the recent tours before the pandemic hit.

Speaking of restoration, what happened with #8058 as of late? It seemed the project has been stalled for two years now. 

It’s not a priority.

I rode on 2252 today on the Hillcrest-Bathurst shuttle, which was such a nostalgic experience after over a decade since my last GM ride on route 52.

I liked how there were nostalgic ads from the 80s inside as well as how simplistic everything was. However, the engine seemed to make a lot more noise and smelled worse than I remember, was it like this when they were still running in service?

You have likely become accustomed to newer quieter and cleaner buses. 

 Back in the day it it didn't smell like grease and diesel fumes it wasn't a bus. Lol

What ever happened to the 2 new looks that went to the UK? Almost impossible to find anything online relating to TEC that aren't 7 or 8 years old. No historical hyperlinks still work for the club, and while it looks like the company itself still exists (according to https://www.solocheck.ie/Irish-Company/Transport-Enthusiasts-Club-Designated-Activity-Company-514118), the address attached to it is a semi-detached house. The fact that 2280 and the InfoBus are stored in preparation to go to Ireland tells me that they still actively preserve the buses. If this is true, why is there no media online (pictures or videos), or barley any mention at all, even on Irish forums about the buses?

From what I heard, 2280 is staying on this side of the Atlantic.
