To add, calling it "TTC new things" sounds extremely vague. With an umbrella title like that, we could use this thread to discuss new vehicle acquisitions, fresh news articles, fresh contracts, fresh rebuilds, fresh retirements, etc etc etc.

How is New TTC Bus thing sightings?

It would be best if you made a new topic dedicated to the streetcars and buses you listed above that have nothing to do with the external announcements. Maybe something like "TTC vehicles with unusual bells," but that would exclude 7310, so perhaps "TTC vehicles with unusual parts"?

Can anyone think of a better topic title?

7847 assigned to 17 yesterday had external announcement - "17 Birchmount to Warden Station"

I would presume that as shop forces have the time each division will work through it's fleet.

yes. At eglinton, I believe each day 2 buses gets done (on weekdays only).

I find the pronunciation is a bit off for the 86C and 86E. I swear I heard the machine calls out 86E when the sign is showing 86C.

Some of the Eglinton buses have added 2 wheel chair stickers on the exterior. One on the left front side of the bus. The other one on the back of the bus. If anybody is interested in start a thread on this, 7400, 7600 and 7565 are several ones with the stickers applied. From what I see, whichever bus has to enter the shop for repair/schedule maintainence, stickers are applied on the bus.

I don't think we need to start a thread on the application of wheelchair stickers on buses. During last summer (I think before the Pan Am games started) the 9400s got slapped with those stickers on the back and nobody bothered to mention that on the Orion V Retirements thread.

Of course, that is just my opinion and I'm not going to stop anyone from wanting to start a thread on this topic if he wants to.
