I'll also chime in with a photo of an agency in Ohio (not Dayton, but this will do).

Just a minor correction: the elements were 001 and 003, which would be cars 81-501, 80-001, 81-502, 81-505, 80-003 and 81-506.

Not the best shot, but it's one of my personal favourites out of my (small) collection so far:

Choose your mode of transit: OC Transpo bus 5135, a 2010 Orion VII NG hybrid, passes under the Rideau River rail bridge as O-Train set C8, a 2013 Alstom Coradia LINT 41 DMU, approaches overhead.

Check Wikipedia for lacmta fleet because cptdb is not 100% accurate enough

Here's a photo I took of STO MCI Classic 9108 when it first got the new logo. The GM/MCI/Nova Classic era in the Outaouais Region is almost ending as the STO will never be the same without these babies. Hopefully the STO will do a ceremonial ride with the last unit in service!

R.I.P. 1984-2018 Originals for 34 years of service!

I guess I'll continue with the "Classic" theme. 

Cold Lake Transit #5007 (Former Calgary Transit #5083) arriving at the Cold Lake Marina on Route 1 - North Circle. Several MCI Classics were bought from Calgary to start up a transit system back in 2015. These buses are due to be replaced by new Nova Buses, however, a few will remain as back-up units as the system grows. Photo taken July 21, 2018.

A common sight just a few short years ago, but now one that turns heads: an ALRV, in service, and on the Bathurst line to boot. Toronto Transit Commission #4221 approaches Bastion Street on Fleet Street while operating on route 511 Bathurst, a mere week after its return to service from a refurbishment that commenced in November 2016.
