I would love to see NVTC sending out more D40LF's during the off peak hours and on the weekends.

You could also add 7254 being another NVTC D40LF out on a Sunday.

Also it seemed like the 640 now interlines with the C86 and C87 during an AM tripper.

7171 did that trip on the 24th.

There are only 4 C40LFR (maybe more) out today.

Maybe has to do with the particulate cloud formed by the brushfires

Of which I am reminded of my heritage.

Maybe all the drivers want XN40 because they have AC compared to no AC on the C40LFR.

Decided to research N19s tonight.

There exists a block that runs as an N19 down to Surrey before heading back to New West to do some 106s.

Also did some sifting for the N19 Blocks. Here is the list for Sunday nights. Asterisks denote New West trips.

8142: 099, N19 0724-2656
-25:39 EB
7497: 320, 321, 323, 325, 501, 502, N19 0615-2726

I think that's going to be the case with the trips that end at 6:41, 7:26, 7:41, and 8:26 as well.

I guess I could mention this as well, 8098 did a 128, 151, 152, 153, 155, 157, 159, 160, 169 on the 3rd. It seemed to have replaced another bus around 18:10.

So on the 16th, 3310 was on the 135 and 160 AM runs, but when I checked T-Comm, it said that it was interlined with 97, 151, 153, 156, 157, 159, 169, 701, and 791, which never happened in the past and nothing similar has popped up on T-Comm ever since...just thought that I should drop a note here. I'll try and go out again tomorrow morning to see which bus is running and check if this run appears again or if it disappears from T-Comm and NB (as it usually does) by the time I get on a computer.

EDIT: This block has happened again this morning, so it's a safe assumption that it's part of the new sheet.

A Weekday block this sheet shows a late night 403 interlined with rush hour 351s and 601s. (7402)

http://tcomm.bustrainferry.com/mobile/bus?busId=7413

This one shows a late night 351 with 403s and C92s. Perhaps they needed extra space for that last night 351.

http://tcomm.bustrainferry.com/mobile/block/1430305

This too, late night 601s. I noticed this, I can actually hear the difference in engine from my house as it passes when I'm trying to sleep.

Edit: its weekday only, check 7397 if you want to see it in action.

Along with these interesting blocks, the 555 seems to be interlined with local runs at the end of the block. I saw an XN40 at carvolth on Thursday Friday and Saturday on layover past 2200. I figured it may have been a bus change the first time I saw it, but the next night was the same. Checked tcomm and sure enough, it was part of the block. I wonder if this could be a regular thing more often.

AFAIK the Fall sheet saw Saturday Night 555s being attached to the local routes.

Has anyone been experiencing issues with T-Comm yesterday and today? Been on and off for me, maybe related to the new units being added to the servers?

Yeah its been on and off for me as well. Im just using the next bus site for the time being.

It seemed to work last night at around 12:30am and then it went down.

Has been going on and off for me as well. Not sure if it has to do with a server issue. It worked for me a bit las night the went down and hasn't worked since then. This problem has been around since Monday. Hopefully it's back up and running asap.
