Barrie Transit

Recommended Posts

Between 1989 and 1991, the first two digit of the 5-digit numbers are for the year the bus was built the last three are for the fleet number itself. That year and beyond, the fleet number code is as follows 6xxyy where x is the bus number and the y is the year the bus was built. For example 65598 is the 1998 Nova LFS which was a TTC demo numbered 1001 from 1998 to 2000.

Were they involved in the 2008 option of the Ontario Bus Purchase Consortium?

Yeah.

I know on wiki it says for the 2007 d40lf's 6xx07-6xx07. Does anybody know yet or is it still unknown? And also what engine and transmission do the 2004, 2006 and 2007 d40lf's have?

I'll take a guess at it and I'll say 68607 to 69407 are 2007 D40LF. Then there is one D40LF 2008 numbered 69508.

The 2006 and 07 D40LF fleet # are undetermined my guess it would be 2 and 4-5, but I'll find out more later on.

Powertrain, the 2004, 06, 07-08 D40LF have ISL/B400R.

My friend E-Mailed me lastnight saying there`s a rumer that the nova will be retiring this year.

Is it true?

The last two times I have been to Barrie both on weekdays I never saw it in service.

Does your friend knows how well his source he's getting?

I can see why the LFS is retiring because they are litterly fustrated with high maintenance.

Platoon Chief Keith Lusk, one of the firefighters on scene, said it was likely diesel fuel or various oils that ignited.

Since when does diesel fuel ignite? Obviously one of the hydralic hoses came loose...

Nice fire department in Barrie :blink:

putting the hydraulic rad fan above the turbo is a recipe for disaster.

Orion at its best!

nova lfses are prone to it also.

I had heard that 90640 had been renumbered to 64090.

Here is a little project I have been working on for the last while, slowly adding to it as I get the chance, here is the Barrie page

Very good work, D40LF, on the roster page.

As with any roster, there is always stuff that is unknown and the attached photos are an example. Back in the mid 1990's, PMCL (the contractor operating Barrie Transit) purchased a number of ex-Kitchener Transit GMC new looks and Flyer D800A buses. I think they were mainly bought for parts and none ever saw service, but one # 782 was actually painted up in anticipation of service.

I am pretty sure that it never did enter service and eventually this bus ended up in the Toronto area at the PMCL garage on North Queen Street in Etobicoke.

Interesting. Is there a list of what was purchased from Kitchener Transit?

WOW. Nice Photos Kevin! When were these images taken and are these buses still around? 782 looks to be in very good shape.
