OC Transpo Orion-Ikarus 8898 (ex-TTC 6369) seen on Route 95 on Christmas Day 2001. This route is now been retired after more than 30 years in favour of the new LRT.

This weeks Lost Ottawa #TBT brings you the B Train!

The "B" and "St. Patrick" date this photo to between November 1954 and January 1959, and since the photo appears to have been taken on a nice summer day, it would realistically have been between 1955 and 1958.  Before 1954, the "H" streetcar served the St. Patrick line.

From Lost Ottawa on Facebook:

STO GM Fishbowl seen beside a plant that used to provide Ottawa and Hull with its meat. Circa 1980.

If I'm not mistaken tom, X18 trips went via Tremblay instead of Coventry. Based off these maps I'd think I'm right.

#TBT, OC Transpo 8776 seen at the St. Laurent with a wrap ad for Visibus. This bus is now owned by a Private Company

This is not accurate. 8776 belongs to a private individual. Not quite the same thing as a company.

df0879fa-fcf0-11e9-82bb-0eda3a42da3c.jpg According to La Presse, OC Transpo 9301 was the first bus built at the St Eustache plant by Nova once MCI stopped producing the Classic.

Wasn't STM 12-099 the first NovaBus Classic produced? I recall 12-001 to 12-101 being built by MCI except for that one-off bus.

Our 1993 NovaBus Classics were also the first batch to be completed by Nova.

I believe that was just a prototype.

Here's an interesting photo by Bob Hussey. 9011 is at Mackenzie King Bridge doing a route 85 Bayshore sometime between August and November 2000.

An interesting fact about this bus is that it was just freshly repainted into the new maple leaf livery at the time of this photo (was repainted by August 2000 and was the first D40 repainted), even before any of the 90xx D40s got Luminator signs. According to @Michel, this was actually one of the first 90xx D40s to have gotten the new signs in November 2000.

The one thing about the 90XX D40's & the 92XX D40's where the window frames On the 92XX D40's where all black and had 2 flip down windows at the top, while the 90XX D40's where silver and had both a 1 & 2 Flip down windows as you can see in this pic. I'm not sure of why the change.
