Mk III parked at Lafarge lake tonight, blinking red lights on each end and roped off with caution tape. Anyone know why?

From what I've seen in the past, probably training.

Just seen an unidentified 2006 C40LFR being towed westbound, along Lougheed Hwy at Holdom Street, presumably destined for BTC.

7115 is back in service after being off the road for a couple of months. 

This happened before last year with 7115. Must've been something mechanical that had it sidelined? Glad to see what ever the issue was it was not written off.

I thought the strike would start this weekend; and if that proceeds, I guess they have a plan in place for the Sun-run special?

=====================================

UPDATE as of 6 hours ago, strike is postponed

Maybe with her being such an old coach, she's at the bottom of the priority list for major repairs? And now the boys at Surrey TC finally had a chance to get to her?

Probably a test drive after something got worked on, since that sighting was just the bus on an offramp in Richmond and it was unclear where it was headed. I mean it could be possible that it was being driven to RTC as well

The most complete ex-CMBC Polar I've seen for sale. Most of them have their destination signs and pull cords intact, but this one still has its ad brackets and bike rack too. Fleet number S079.
