I would like to confirm that 1742 1747 1749 are retired and stripped at Malvern. 1571 is still parked in the same spot as 1729 and 1797 before they were confirmed retired.

1571 is now at the front of the west lane facing Sheppard. 

How were you able to identify the stripped buses from the sidewalk?

with my camera and I got to see them with an operator I know at Malvern. is 1571 officially retired now?

Do the stripped buses still have their fleet numbers on the sides?  

I don't know about 1571's status.

No they remove it when they strip the bus.

Since the previous conversation was in this thread, here's an update on ex-7900-7905, the TPS converted buses...

Last night 4 of the buses were downtown for Nuit Blanche, serving their new purpose as road blocks. They are numbered ES-0 to ES-5 and labeled for "Events Support", and oddly also have the Toronto/Ontario/Canada logos on the rear, similar to other buses in the new LFLRV livery. They have retained their TTC license plates, which makes tracking their former fleet # a lot easier. The four that were out have the last digit match their 790x number (aka ES-0 was 7900), so I'd assume 7901 and 7905 are now ES-1 and ES-5 respectively. The buses are not numbered externally btw, only visible fleet numbers are on the interior front panel.

It should also be noted that the buses have their original numbers near the build plate.

Yo, that's sick. She looks so stealthy. 

Which is a funny way to wrap a bus whose main purpose (as far as I know) is to say "Yo! Big bus in the way!"  I assume the white stripe is reflective, but it's still not the look that I would choose.

From knowledge, it was painted. Rims too

I have summed up the OG's I believe are most likely retired, but I am not yet 100% sure on some of them:

7730, 7737, 7744, 7758, 7772, 7775, 7847, 7837.

7847 has been MIA for 3 days. Maybe a mech shop hold.

Not 100% sure but I’m pretty sure 7727 is retired. Tracker is inactive and was removed from service 2 days ago due to its emissions being too toxic

It’s on 12C right now. Just because it hasn’t been in service for two days doesn’t mean it’s near retirement

Yup I can definitely confirm 7727 is NOT retired. You know you should really check the tracker BEFORE you post.7727.thumb.PNG.67d2e60fada2ed14abde033c2978483e.PNG

If these area TPS buses why retain the TTC logo.

They are still owned and maintained by TTC. They are reassigned/exclusive to TPS uses. Whether that be for event shuttle or roadblock.

1740 is still in service since Wednesday on the 21A.

I would like to confirm that 1543 is now stripped and 1598 should be retired since it had no presto readers on it. 1740 might be done too.
