Revision needed for King County Metro 2600-2812

Recommended Posts

There are some improvements to be made to the King County Metro 2600-2812 page on the CPTDB wiki. Multiple units are listed as active wen they should be retired. They are listed below. I'd do this myself, but whenever I enter my username and password I use on this discussion board to log in, the site won't let me enter.

2642

Hello! Thanks for the information. I've moved your thread to the CPTDB Wiki Content Changes and Additions forum.

Editing privileges are not given to all members. If you are interested in applying, you may do so here: https://cptdb.ca/forum/59-applications/

We typically ask for history of quality posts here on this forum, but also will consider any external experience as well (for example, industry knowledge, Wikipedia editing)

I've been busy attempting to update the 3600 page pertaining to retirements and also tracking and updating the new Gillig arrivals so haven't been able or have had the time to edit the 2600-2700 page.  Hopefully, I'll be able to get to it eventually if another editor doesn't beat me to it  ...it would be nice to have somebody else beat me to updating that page, however.

I went ahead and made the changes you've pointed out with the exception of 2642.  2642 shows active on January 18th/19th which was over the past weekend on Saturday with its last trip starting at 12:16 AM or a bit after midnight on Sunday operating the route 7 / 49.  Let's leave that one showing "active" for awhile longer.  The rest on your list haven't been observed in service for over a month so it's safe to assume that they are actually retired.

Should you acquire editor status, please keep an eye on the 2600s and update as needed as it's tedious for me to navigate such a large wiki page.  It sounds as if you may already have the skills necessary for wiki editing?  I'm an old fart who has a difficult time with it and it takes me a long time to make sure my edits are being done accurately.

Hey, thanks for doing that, dude, I appreciate that. I also forgot to mention a minor detail that should be added to King County Metro 3201-3544 page. Apparently coach 3243 was retired early when it caught fire at Ryerson Base on 1/21/11. You don't have to put that on there, but I just wanted to let you know.

I was browsing Pantograph and it shows that coaches 2688, 2761, and 2780 is back on the job. 2688 re-entered service on January 22, 2761 re-entered on January 23, and 2780 re-entered on January 24.

hmmm, okay.  I'll show them active again.  They are being used again after evidently being in the boneyard for over a month.

Maybe they were just awaiting repairs. 2688 and 2761 are stored at Atlantic. While 2780 is being stored at Central. I was just saying this so that you knew what base name to put them under.

I notice that 2787 is in revenue service today, March 03.  I'll keep an eye on the others you list that haven't been observed in service for over a month now.

Do you know somebody at Metro that has information as it pertains to if a coach is "officially" retired?

No, I got all my information from Pantograph.

I know I make many comments on the coach series' status so I waited about 3 weeks and made a complete list instead of butchering it into multiple comments.

This is unrelated to the 2600-2812 page, but I noticed that multiple ST 2005 DE60LF's are listed as active when they're retired. Those coaches are 9600, 9604, 9606, 9619, and 9621.
