How did I not listen.... the post is gone my guy, don't try and start stuff when you don't know anything...

Now you're insulting my Matt-man. That's where I draw the line.

No more crap. Let's stop this before we get the entire board shut down.

Can anyone confirm if 9001 and 9028 are repainted or in the process of being repainted?

I would 9028 assume is being repainted because it's been gone for the same amount of time as 9029 which is now repainted

Anyone have pictures to confirm this?

Other than 9029, there were no other artics outside of hillcrest that I saw.

Unless someone has access inside hillcrest, then I would assume not.

I might be able to swing by Hillcrest tomorrow.

I would go by, but I got yelled at by a security guard a few years back. So I now am kind of scared...

Plus I am not sure if school will be cancelled or not( most likely not).

Yeah. Apparently I was standing to close to the gate. I didn't know what to do, so I ran all the way to Bathurst.

He just stared at me the whole time. Being the young kid that I was super scared.

Any update on 9028 or 9029?

Both are still at Hillcrest. 9029 was temporarily sent back to Mt Dennis for MTO inspection and when completed was sent back to Hillcrest to complete the rebuild.

Hah. No, and after seeing it in person, I’d be very surprised if it did.

Here are some really bad photos of the rear of what appears to be 9029 just beside Davenport garage.

I don't like the rear being all dark red. The current rear that is mostly white (those on the Nova hybrids) is much better because it's more visible.

Have to agree. An all-red rear almost certainly meant the bus went from stick-on decals to having a paint job.

Can't the TTC just peel off the old livery decals and stick the new ones on? Is there nothing better than simply painting over them?

Does anyone have any info on whether the rear doors are being replaced with newer ones altogether?

The rear doors that came installed on the 2015-2016 40ft Novas, and all the Nova Artics are nothing but pure trash; the amount of air that seeps in from them is pretty damn atrocious, especially during the winter time where they essentially render the heaters useless if passengers are around a 3 foot radius of them. The only other bus that came even close to being this bad with the air gaps was the Nova RTS, but even they werent as bad as the current 2015-2016 LFS.

So you're saying the 2017+ LFSes have another type of door or they are newer so you don't notice this draft?

Slightly tweaked design.
