2007 LFR Sightings

Recommended Posts

Figured I would start a new topic to keep track of LFR spottings to keep track of new buses are they arrive and enter service.

The new buses have DPFs, then? I'm surprised that's not being advertised more prominently.

Oops! I meant to include IF they have DPFs. I don't know if they do... Although, I believe a lot of new buses are coming with them.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought DPF's were going to be standard on all new orders, 2007 and beyond.

According to the wonderfully well prepared presentation on new technology by a U of A student working for transit at the Community conference, all buses from 2007 onwards come with DPF's as standard.

And he also said the new order would come with security cameras installed...

Meh. Spotted 4540 twice today. So far the confirmed Mitchell D40LFRs are 4531, 4538, and 4540. You'd think that with the trolleys moving out of Mitchell, they would end up getting a lot more new buses, but of course ETS is never consistent with anything (Except random dieselization) :lol:

Anyone keeping track of how many LFRs we have right now?

Just went through a made a listing of what LFR's were spotted where on each day... So far it looks like this for garage assignments:

4523- Westwood

4524- Ferrier

4525- Ferrier?

4528- Ferrier

4529- Westwood, orginally Mitchell

4531- Mitchell

4533- No clue. Spotted on 109 St/ 87 Ave. Likely Ferrier or Westwood. Some Mitchell runs go down 109 St as well.

4536- Westwood

4538- Mitchell

4540- Mitchell

Excellent list man! I believe 4535 might also be Westwood as I saw it on the 2 the other day (If it was a Mitchell run on the 2, I would have ssen that bus elsewhere by now)

4535 is indeed a Westwood bus - I saw it on the route 162 Castle Downs. There was another LFR behind it in the stall at Northgate, but I'm too lazy to look up what route that is. If it's the 150, it could be something other than Westwood (Mitchell).

The bay behing the 162 is for the 16, so whatever LFR that was is a Westwood bus for sure.

Ah - yeah I was kind of on 97 Street southbound waiting for the lights, so I couldn't exactly see.

For the record, the run number boxes are just displaying the route number - because this hasn't been documented yet.

Some are. 4524 had 51 on the run number box... 4528 and 36 did not. It seems to be driver optional at this point.

Hmm, interesting. Wonder how one goes about getting it to display SUPER EXPRESS or if it is programmed in with the code already.

Well I had quite a surprise just now. I go out for a quick bike ride and decide to pull out my camera to see how steady I can hold it. I turn around and.....well this kind of explains it :P

The protruding pieces above the doors? Are they passenger counters?

4542 was on a 109 (842) school special today. The number boxes are definitely replacing the window cards, as it was displaying the school run number (842, in this case)
