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!

I may be interested, most certainly. Granted, I gotta see how my schedule goes. And, I really should think of doing something similar for ETS's ISC's (`98-`01), since those could be decimated by our newest incoming order of XD's! I myself have a personal affinity for the 1998's, and there be only four of those left. 

For now, March 15 sounds fine and dandy, and, if all goes well, I'm game!

7694 is at Recon Metals under a pile of rubble.  7660, 7604 and 7613 are in one of their other properties getting things checked out before they get junked.

EDIT: 7613 still, surprisingly, says 302 S HEALTH CAMPUS on the sign!

7604 was towed into the metals yard just after 16:00 this afternoon, in the exact same spot 7682 was parked in a few days ago.  They towed it close to closing, so they will likely scrap it tomorrow.  7660 and 7613 were still in their other property, but they're for sure next on the chopping block.

7604 was completely scrapped today.

7620, 7638, 7663 and 7680 are retired.  From what my contact told me, the fleet numbers and CT decals have been removed and the buses are possibly sold.

7661 is now retired and is in the scrapyard.  7625 is also at Recon Metals, although it is in a storage property along with  7676 which I reported earlier.
