Taken during the last day of the #70xxs in February 2015. Apologize for the blurriness.

If you look it up and search a little you can find out that the TTC had plans to have a mostly flyer fleet but something prompted them not to

They got used on my home route so I saw a lot of them

What route are you talking about though? The last massive order of Flyers took place around 1990 (although they were slated for 50 MCI Classics, though NFI acquired them for lower price) and the new order of Flyer buses in a form of an XE40 will be delivered in 2019.

The TTC thought about buying more D40LFs but decided against due to the frame not being stainless steel or something like that

And the 7300s on the 111 East Mall my home route

Who else misses the D40LF buses

In all honesty not me.  The D40s were reliable but they had pretty big issues at the end of their lifetimes.  The first issue I had with them was their noise.  Those D40/ were CRAZY loud, and maybe the foamers would like that but to me it was just annoying.  Another thing I noticed was that they almost never had air conditioning.  I’m not sure if the mechanics at Queensway just gave up on them but they were always hot as hell in the summer.

Here are some deadline photos from hillcrest. The first photo is from September of 2015, while the others are from early 2016.

Please forgive me for the blurriness in the first photo. At this point I was just starting to photograph transit and the vehicles on Davenport were super distracting🙄🙄.
