Post Delivery Inspection track, I believe. Buses that are delivered but still being tested and prepared for service.

That is correct!

Went to the yard in Sidney that's storing all the new deckers. Highest number I saw was 19432. The highest number could actually higher by a couple numbers, but probably nothing over 5.

(side note, there might be a big dent on 19432)

Getting a 403 forbidden with that image, can you rehost it somewhere else?

I'm able to view it perfectly

I'm not even getting a 403.  Just a bunch of script which is not 'clickable'.

I did a double-take on that first photo, thinking someone had invented an articulated double-decker! What a beast that would be!

There are double decker arctics, and have been around for decades. Neoplan, Prevost, etc.

There has only been 1 articulated double decker model, and if I recall correctly, all of them are in Europe in very limited use.  The only model ever made was the Neoplan Jumbocruiser.
Prevost only made a limited number of single deck articulated intercity coach buses (H5-60), which were the only type of its kind in North America, but they weren't as successful as the European counterparts.

Point was that it's already been done, but thanks for the clarification.

Far as I'm aware, the double decker artic isn't in Canadian specs for transit use, even if it was there'll be more seats upstairs in back empty rather than the downstairs or front upstairs. 

 

1. People may get freaked out in back on top floor here.

And 2. Driver needs to pay more attention to the road and stops. People won't get to the door in time for bus to leave. 

 

This is just my thoughts over things. Which should go in the dreams thread people!

19406 is in service

It's possible that one or more of the others that were delivered last weekend may also be ready to go. They were being moved around the yard this morning.

19411 and 19424 were spotted northbound Highway 17A at Ladner Trunk at about 10 am today.

Well we know where they are going, but storage in Victoria?
