An update on the retirements - only 16 buses remain in service and in operation as of this writing: #7709, #7719, #7763, #7773 (113), #7782, #7789 (92), #7792, #7808 (12B), #7811 (22A), #7821, #7833 (24A), #7838 (65), #7846, #7848 (92), #7879, and #7883.

#7865 and #7874 are likely done as they haven't moved for a few days, meaning the fuel door is taped shut.

7874 doesn't seem done, it's most likely getting repairs as if it were getting drained, it would have been in the shops. And yes 7865 seems done.

The fuel door was taped shut yesterday. Maybe still fuel in the tank. IDK. I'll ask Birchmount if it's slated.

I saw 7848 today. No tape on the fuel door

With all the people upset about 7575 retiring, maybe you should put your money together and buy it from TTC and make it the first preserved Orion 7. That's kinda how HCRR got started.

Speaking of which, has anything further become of that mobile hygiene station project using 7423? Or did they bite off more than they could chew?

If I had a million dollars, that'll be the first thing I do, and then get a jet pack that runs on Mountain Dew

 

Here is a funny thing I noticed, chaps. When I looked on the roof, the HVAC vent was removed off of a lot of VIIs while I saw 7575's and it was not. (She was on 17 a week ago)

The owner had an accident and it's been put on hiatus.

It's slowly corroding, having been exposed to the elements and parked at the same spot for a few months or so

Steven Page just shuddered and didn't know why.

Considering the project has raised very little money, I'm assuming it's been abandoned. The people at the garage it's stored at haven't been able to contact anyone and they've been wanting the bus gone for months now.

And then they were 15: #7709, #7719 (121A), #7763, #7782 (505), #7789 (16), #7792 (113), #7808, #7811, #7821, #7833 (12B), #7838 (113), #7846 (12A), #7848 (505), #7879 (505), and #7883.

#7773 appears to be finished and presumably retired. 

Disregard, one is still kicking and 16 still remain: #7709, #7719 , #7763, #7773, #7782, #7789, #7792, #7808, #7811, #7821, #7833, #7838, #7846), #7848, #7879, and #7883.

It ain't done yet. 7773 was inactive for around 4 days before coming back in service in that exact same spot, I doubt it's done yet.

This thought just occurred to me: Would the TTC let one of the 7900s converted to an event bus out on a charter?

I don't know what the public would think when they see a bunch of kids running off one.

No they don't allow it, I've already asked out of curiosity.

Waste of buses! Why was it that the last GM New Looks retired just a few years ago, but the still relatively modern Orion VII buses are heading out now? Makes no sense. The Head of the TTC should step down immediately.
