I've gone on the tracker a few times (I do enjoy how it, like SMART's tracker, displays fleet numbers) and I've noticed that neither the Eldorados, the first-gen LFSes, the 8000-series LFSes nor the Orion VIs are trackable. Could this be because all of the aforementioned (except the 8000s of course) have been retired already?

The 8000s can't be tracked since they haven't had the iBus system installed yet. Easiest way to find one is on the Tunnel Bus route.

the Eldorados haven't seen service an year, and the 97 LFS are still on the road, only two Orion VI's have been retired (416 & 419), with 5 buses being held back a good chance they will be the LFS's as they have had work done to them. There are some Flyers D40i already sitting with plates removed and they are having issues with them. At the time the 8000 series  have been used on the tunnel run in fact 8017 is on the run today, they are also used on the express route and senior specials. I saw 8015 last Thursday night on the Walkerville route. The 8000 series were numbered 578 - 601 at the Nova plant and had to be renumbered as there was already a number 601, so the 8000 series was picked and had nothing to do with the year.

I rode 8001 this morning, then on the way home 8001 was changed out for 577 at Vollmer Centre before St Clair College.  550 was on the Transway 1A with messed up farebox

Are all of the 2002 Orion VIIs getting refurbished? Or just select units? Bernie?

What shape are 701-702 in?  Would be nice if CK Transit got one or both for route 1 and 2. Help with the overcrowding 

They both have had a electrical problems, #701 did see some service in early 2017 then it disappeared,  #702 has not seen service well over a year,  both have sat at the garage since then.
