869 (I think) on the 203 tonight. The back end kind of smelled like diesel exhaust.

835 continues to live. Spotted WB on 87th Ave at 116th St. (University) just now.

Have 837, 838 and 842 been spotted within the last week?

I thought I saw that unit today, but it must've been 806 instead. I couldn't exactly see the numbers clearly, since I need a new prescription. :D

Probaly a while, since that's been around since 2001 or 2002. :lol:

Noticed yesterday that StAT is running Route 216 out to Morinville. We'll see how long it lasts....

This board needs a red-faced emoticon, so that I can use it from time to time :lol:

It may get over-used (by us with senior moments).

802 at the University this morning.

Anyone seen #877 in service yet, since it took some delay in delivery because of the the Trans-Expo out east.

That would be 805 or 806

Has to be 806, as 805 has not moved from its spot on the ramp at the StAT garage.

Spotted 837 today, SB St.Albert Trail @ 118 Ave, about 5 PM. It's been the first time in at least a week that I've spotted a Classic. Maybe it's hanging on awaiting the arrival of 877. Has anyone seen any of the other Classics recently?

835 NB on St. Albert Trail @ 118 Ave this morning.

On another note, it looks like the SLF-230's have had the shiny metal StAT logos applied underneath their front windshields recently (same style as the D40LFR's).

842 spotted westbound 87th Ave @ 116th Street working Route 203 just now.

I have a feeling that 838 is toast as well. Given that the only ones that we keep seeing in service are 835, 837 and 842. Meanwhile 834, 836, 839, 840 and 841 have all been visually confirmed to be retired.

So if St. Albert was suppose to replace 10 buses as indicated earlier, they have only got rid of 7. While atleast 11 of 13 D40LFR's are now in service. 870 and 877 have yet to be reported in service. I'm going to assume that 870 is in fact in service, just nobody has posted that they saw it. So 12 new buses have been placed into service; meanwhile, only 7 have been retired. I have a positive feeling that they are unable to retire 10 at this moment.

However, one Classic may just be hanging around because 805 is probably awaiting some major repair, I really doubt that it is due for retirement. One Classic may also be hanging around just for 877. And if for some reason 870 is actually still not in service, one Classic could be hanging around for that bus. So to contradcit myself, these 3 Classics could just be sticking it out till they get buses 805, 870 and 877 on the road. Then they will still have retired 10 buses and added 13, as they indicated they would.

Spotted 870 in service while driving home yesterday evening.

Agreed. I noticed two weeks ago (before the snow fell!) that there is a large black stain on the pavement under the back end of the bus which made me wonder too if it is waiting for repair.
