If anyone is looking for the 2006/2007 buses. Viau seems the place to be, tried going to a place with lots of FR buses to catch up what I am missing in photos, pratically only saw 2006s

The 168 and 178 are also great routes for the 26/27 series. Just like the 136 (and unlike the 24), they have tons of departures that don't require a front ramp. 

26-068 was on the 24 today around 15:15.

Frontenac's 27-023 and 27-024 were running one after another (in numerical order too!) on the 192 all day. 27-023 no longer has the Frontenac bumper.

27-013 was on the 43 and 27-019 was on the 81.

Yesterday: 27-022, 26-041, 26-052 and 27-021 were on 4 consecutive 136-N's. I got on 26-041! Might as well be one of my last ever rides on a rocket since the 136 will have far fewer non-front ramp (or not) departures starting next week; Anjou will soon be the only garage still having rockets.

Today: spotted 26-020 on the 136-N, and I attach a picture (why not).

Lol I just saw the retired STM 25-208 passing by terminus montmorency, it had the "En Transit" destination sign. Anyone wonders what the bus was doing in Laval?

Actually, 25-208 is the only 25 series still remaining on the roster. Given how it hasn't been seen in service in so long, my guess is it's relegated to some certification/training duties now, just like 22-410 and 24-270 (IIRC) once did.

Spotted 26-057 on the 34 this morning! Holy cow I couldn't believe my eyes. Haven't seen a single 2nd gen at Viau (well, or anywhere else...) so far this week!
