BC Transit - Nanaimo


Recommended Posts

8070 is now in Nanaimo joining 8034, 8043, 8077 and 8111.

I wondered why there was such a sparsity of ex-small communities D40LFs in Victoria! I had been suspecting that one and possibly a couple of others might have been moved. As far as the '95s go, the only ones I saw in the past couple of days in Vic were the refurbished ones (8072 and 8078) and 8067 in the old colours. No sign of 8082, 8084 or 8086, and another member reported that 8079 is missing plates which means it's definitely going somewhere.

With the D40LFs slowly being transferred from Victoria, are the Orions still in active service? I'm headed up to Nanaimo tomorrow to see what I can see. Do 600/601 ever come out on weekends, or are they mere weekend spares?

I have not seen the Orions in service since the beginning of May. I drove by the yard a few days back and noticed that they are infact still here, but are sitting at the far end of the yard near the entrance to Calinda St.

Oh, BTW... Most, if not all of our buses have the new fareboxes installed...

Nanaimo spotters, I have been updating the Nanaimo WIKI page and would like to know if any other changes need to be made. Here is what I have based on some of the spottings in this thread:

http://www.cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=N..._Transit_System . So please post what is no longer in Nanaimo and what is now in Nanaimo that may not be listed. And if you know of where certain units have gone to after leaving Nanaimo, please feel free to let us know. Thanks for all your help.

i heard that 9083, 9286 and 9287 have been moved. 9083 to Comox, and I can confirm 9286, 9287 to Kelowna. Also 9083, 9085 I think should be 2001 models, not 2002...and according to The Next Stop, 8091 should be in the Sunshine Coast right now...

Has 8091 not always been there? It was last summer, I thought at least.

Yeah, it was transferred sometime between Jan. 08 and Jun. 09...probably whenever Classic 8904 was moved out. I believe 8093 and 8094 were the only SC originals
