I was just informed by Scheduling that #7603 is also retired. So I have requested one of #7632, #7633 or #7636 as the charter bus with a remark that any 7600 will do if those aren't available either. With 10 days to go, I'm fully confident that we won't have an issue having a bus available.

Theres a charter coming up? I get paid in 7 days, so i could maybe pay up for tickets, if theres some available.

Hope we get 7632.  I believe that's the best one out of that bunch of 3.

It is worth noting, 7632 on the driver side rear it doesn’t have the three slit vents like the rest of the series, it has a 7500 style panel ;)

I havent seen 7644 active in quite some time, plus it was last reported with a dead CAD.  I dont believe it is going to die quite yet, but who knows at this point.  If you have seen this unit recently or see this unit again in the future, please update this thread.

#7636 is also doing the 23 till past 25:00.

 

Both buses have been changed off according to Transit 55. Once of them with 8220, an SG bus. Wonder if it will end up locked up at Stoney for however long that garage is closed for after today.

A little update to the 7600 fleet.

The scrapping of the 7600s has resumed.  7664 and 7677 have been spotted at Recon Metals over the past few weeks.

In addition to that, 7638 has found its way over to Lake Louise, AB being used as a shuttle for the resort.

So far for the scrapping of the 7600s this year:

7664 was scrapped in June 2021.

7618 and 7677 were scrapped in July 2021.

7606, 7623, 7639, 7644, 7658, 7662, 7665 were scrapped in August 2021.

So far in September, 7616, 7619 and 7687 have been scrapped.  7672 and 7692 are currently awaiting their turn for the crusher.

Just as an update for the 7600s:

Based on reported sightings from me and other members of this forum, 23/44 of the 1996s have been reported off property, and 24/44 for the 1999s (of course, in reality this number is bound to be much higher)

7611, 7631, 7635 and 7657 are the latest casualties.
