It seems job action has suspended all double decker operations unfortunately.

Although, its back out today. So far, its been assigned to an all day block but then swapped off before 1pm. We'll see about this time

No, it has not.  DD training is as scheduled and they are still being blocked out on the 620 as of this time.

I can't tell you if it will go out tomorrow, but I can tell you that there are now at least 4 of them in RTC. While 19402 was already out, I drove past the depot and saw three others inside. I couldn't see very well from afar, but it looked like the fourth bus was 19406.

 

(Too lazy to wander over to track 52 where they were parked...)

The forth is 19404. 19403 is the other one on the track.

 

I got training yesterday on 19402! 😀

Looks like 19404 was on a road test this afternoon? I seen it heading SB on Hwy 99 at Blundell around 235pm as I was driving NB. Nothing lit up on the front sign either.

Has 19410 been in service yet? That's the one that showed up in Victoria for a day. 

This thread will say so; for now it's no.

There are only 4 DDs on the property which are 19401 thru 19404 as of last weekend.

I wish the double deckers had more comfortable seats. Anyone agree with me? Not tall enough, minimal legroom, but the USB is very helpful - and they actually work too!

Think he may have meant the seats themselves.

The seats feel cheap, but they're still more comfortable than the Aries seats.

Theyre also the same as Strathcona's units except with cloth instead if vinyl
