No 3rd gen. are on the road as I went there tonight. But they are sitting in the back, interesting to see they have a white painted on the tailight housing rather than red that camed with it!

They are now in service and there seem to be 3 of them 52,53,54.

One was going the SSFC/Kawartha, another the Major Bennett and didn't catch which run the 3rd was doing.

51 was broken down at the terminal on Friday...i reversed then stopped and could not reverse more or move forward so probably a tranny problem....

does anyone know what officially happened to 51 to get it not to back up or go forward was it the tranny

We really don't know, unless you can ask the supervisor!

New buses will have breakdown as always!

Took a trip to Peterborough today and here is the scoop:

3 out of the 4 3rd gen novas were on the road. crappy photos posted below.

GM Classics #14, #16 and MCI Classics #02, #04 are all retired

Only 8 high floors remaining in the fleet.

Wiki is updated.

there are still 7 classics and one orion 5 left in the fleet so we should be good.

You said that #04 was retired. Isn't #04 the orion v? Or was there a classic numbered #04 as well?

Heh, I guess those Cubic farebox are now outdated and difficulty for parts to get.

Same with Elliot Transit.

But Peterborough will be planning to retrofit to electronic sign sometimes next year.

this video might shock you (only there for a limited time):

http://www.chextv.com/videos/Newswatch_Pet...oughTransit.WMV

did anyone happen to save this video? I just noticed this now and archive.org isn't working right now for some reason to see if they managed to archive it, and it doesn't appear to be on their youtube page.

Just got back from Peterborough (as usual the staff are friendly). Saw several LFS with roll signs.

Went to the garage and pretty much all the Classics, and Orion V and VIs are parked in two rows on the south side. Only saw LFS's in service.
