Do they have their trackers removed yet?

As far as I know, yes.

7607 hasn't been seen in a month. Is it the next to go?

From what I’ve heard, 7607 is done.

Did you notice that 7621 finally came back?

No, but I did notice that Transit55 isn't refreshing on my phone. Chrome probably has an update...

Edit: apparently I did, as I updated it. Didn't remember it though.

Keep an eye out for 7801.  Yes it is a 2002 but last time it was out (I rode it on Route 111) it had tons of problems with the brakes and the tired Cummins ISC engine.

I thought all ISC buses were retrofitted to ISL several years ago...

A few of them still remained with ISC.  7709, 7738, 7754, 7763, 7774, 7775, 7777, 7800, 7801 and 7808 are a few units that come to mind that still have their ISCs.  Most of them sound extremely tired but there are some (eg. 7777 and 7808) that sound decent with their ISCs.

I believe 7750 has an ISC as well

Huh?  LOL!  This is just the list that I have since they started retiring them.

Why?

Oh cause I could've sworn I was on 7660 on Wednesday

7836 (R14 run tonight) - the doors wouldn't close, and it sounded way louder than usual, literally deafening... thought I'd say something, if anyones tracking the 7800s. Made the D40's I used to ride sound almost like low-decibel elevator music...
