Don't know if anyone can confirm but are the bike racks being taken off the retired units and put onto other active units?

I have a feeling too that the bike racks from 7981-7986 came from the 7700s that are now retired.

Just in case anyone has some extra cash around and is looking for a nostalgia project:

Minimum bid is about 100 times more than what I'm willing to spend on a 7700 that doesn't even run 😅

Kinda unfortunate, could have been a profitable investment if it did run...

So is 7777 still on property? When I was a spare boarder this was considered a cursed bus as whoever had it seem to have issues, and I don't mean breakdowns, just something would happen. I finally got it not long before leaving transit and I have to admit I was not happy. Towards the end I thought I was going to escape but then the director of CT got on. Boy talk about stress level going up!

By the way wasn't this one of the ones that was supposed to have been a D40i but the order was changed to D40LF?

7777 is retired now.  Never really liked that bus.  As far as I know, its still on property!

7713 has now showed up at the CPS yard.

With a number like that, it should have been the luckiest; wonder if its TTC counterpart is? A jinxed number would be 6666 or 666. Winnipeg for one uses 666 freely; apparently they don't believe in superstitious nonsense there.

A ? besides the fleet nuymber means that the bus has left city property, but it's second home (or demise) is unknown.
