That won’t change anything. There’s a surplus of vehicles on weekends and holidays anywhere you look.

Yeah, but not having 16 artics sit at the yard all weekend would be nice.

Obviously PTC has 10 extra XDE’s for some reason

Anyone know why the 007's have been 100% Diesel the past 2 days? 

RTC added 40 footers to the 049 today for the PM peak rush due the snow falling

Nanaimo Street construction from what I’ve seen

The majority of the 480s are artics which can partially explain the 40’ 49s

7438 is active on the 3 right now

I don't think anyone would have ever thought of seeing a D40LF on a trolley route

It has happened in the past numerous times.

I guess no trolley routes have been dieselized before the Novabuses arrived.

yes

there are other test numbers in tcomm: 0, 32, 997, 2701, 2706, 2710, and 3981

3101 is actually 9660.

Artics have been on the 430 several times in the past, nothing new.

I don't think there's been an artic on the 430 since RTC had D60LFs.

There was a 12XXX on it a few years back. This is the first 162XX to operate on the 430

Not really sure what you're trying to say here as D60LF's have been on the 430. Are you trying to say that since RTC got back their D60LF's in 2017 they've never appeared on the 430 ?

I'm saying before all the remaining D60LFs transferred to Poco was probably the last time any artic made an appearance on the 430 (IIRC).
