7610 was just towed into recon metals

Sadly, I just saw a piece of metal with stripes on it and it is believed to be 7610 at Recon.

Do people actually use the 69?

Surprisingly, yes, albeit not very many. The few times I've rode it there was never more than about 15 people on the bus

And here's a photo that same bus completing its trip on the 31 and about to start it's first trip on the 76 Crowfoot, taken at Dalhousie LRT Station at around 4:15pm.

How much interest would there be for a 7600 fan trip? Myself and a few others spent most of tonight discussing chartering one of these on a weekend for everyone on here before they're gone. I don't want it to be too short notice, but my concern is how numbered their days are which could pose a challenge for this. I'd hope for a rough date of sometime in March for it. It will certainly take precedence over any restaurant fan meetup.

Anyone with any comments/questions is welcome to PM me!

Me two!  Unfortunately their days are going to be numbered very quickly, so I'd get this organized with Calgary Transit ASAP.  We should also start proposing ideas of possible units to ask CT if they will be avaliable to charter.  (Looks like our options as of right now of non-MIA units are 7603, 7606, 7609, 7611, 7616, 7618-19, 7623, 7632-33, 7638??, 7642, 7644, 7651, 7653, 7657, 7662, 7664, 7672-73, 7677-78, 7681, 7685, 7687 or 7691-92.)

I feel like this will be a fitting time to stick 7618 on the 98.  Enjoy!
