RTL 1st Generation Novabus LFS Watch

167 posts in this topic

A pretty decent week for me and first gens. On Monday for PM rush, I drove C9-926 and P9-817 was immediately behind me. The latter was on the 80.

Then yesterday, I had P9-927 for PM rush, whereas I saw P9-817 for routes 85, 185, and 84! The old stuff seems to be making it out to Boucherville this week!

Drove P9-921 on the 606 school tripper this PM in overtime! A rare opportunity to request an older bus was granted :D

I'd like to assure everyone that first gens are very much still alive here at RTL despite the lack of posting. Even though I do not have the dubious luxury of driving them everyday, I do see them very often but sadly I lack the time to post it. For instance, the oldest bus in the fleet P9-817 was very much active this morning on route 20.

Initially I was assigned 9-913 this afternoon however due to unforeseen circumstances, I managed to get C9-926 instead.

Two days ago, I drove the oldest vehicle in the RTL fleet, P9-817. It ran fairly well for a bus that was unretired!

I saw P9-817 on the 87 today in PM rush near TCV. Didn't even know the RTL still had first gens.

We sure do. P9-817 and 9-913 are the last two bona fide first gens we have. Then we have 9-920 through 029 and 2-0001 through 015 active. Then the common second gens start with the 2-02xx series. I see too many first gens in rush hours to make notes, especially while driving, so I just write down what I drive on the rare occasion that I get one.

P9-923 my bus this morning. It wasn't very good to be honest but it got the job done.
