Recommended Posts

31-034 was on the 41 with gray duct tape on the driver's vent.

28-092 was also on the 41.

27-003 was on the 49.

37-070 was on the 171 with the left turn signal stuck lit on.

32-008 was on the 55 where it got swapped out for Legendre's 31-201. The mechanic took the 32 back.

Stinson's 29-152 was on the 27. uFnx2.gif

28-089 was on the 193 this evening, got on it. Its nice having 2nd gens en masse on Legendre routes again.

Spotted STL 1308 arriving En Transit at C.-Vertu earlier today, and presumably it did the next 151 to Ste-Rose (since it didn't track). Somehow it never tracks and someone even marked it as retired on the wiki.

I updated the wiki and put 1308 back as active...

Actually, it seems that 31-201 is now a Saint-Denis bus. Some time around last Fall many buses were being shuffled around. Legendre sent some scattered 3rd gens to Saint-Denis during that time.

Tons of 31 series on the 171 this whole week: for example, on Wednesday night, the only buses on it were 31-059, 31-060 and 32-032. It seems like Stinson sends out their 37 series mostly rush hours only, while the 31/32 series do the long all-day runs... at least on the 171. One'd expect the opposite.

While onto Stinson, its oldest bus (29-805) was on the 470 today.

40-230 on the 97 as an extra from Lasalle! 

I saw that one laying over at Atwater between doing the 97 and 104 at 19:30

I took 41-008 on 144MR this afternoon. It certainly manages the hill better than the diesel buses.

I took 27-513 on the 90 around 19:30. This one also was interlining off a MR route, the 427.

A bunch of 31 series on the 171 again: 31-059, 31-070 and 31-061. 

Also spotted 30-019 and 39-015 on it for the entire day. Pretty unusual sight now there are less airport runners.

That is a lot of 31-XXX. As for the airport runners, I've been seeing them everywhere mainly En Transit somewhere around Cote-St-Luc Road, very unusual, and it was mostly the 3rd gens in the > 747 EXPRESS BUS livery

I guess my previous post wasn't all that clear: airport runners are very common to see on regular (non-747) Stinson lines (in your case, perhaps 103) but mostly in rush hours only. What is rare is to see them on all-day runs, or those in the original 747 Express Bus livery. Back in the days I took lots of what I call "retrofit" runners on the 16 (30-001 to 020; and 31-211 to 220 which I still hate to death with all my guts today).

Talking about which, I could have taken 31-212 on the 171 this evening as it was the first 171 to show up. Luckily, I got 29-854 on the 121 instead.

exo PI 342 was on the A40 Express midday. My first time seeing a minibus on it so far (usually it's served by coaches).

Finally, spotted 30-223 on the 121 midday. It didn't track on the 121 and came between two regular departures, both of which seem to be running properly.

Not a single 2nd gen (and conversely full of 30-2xx) on both 209 and 215 today... one of the only few times that I actually needed to take something running out of SL... anyway, I ended up at Mont-Royal metro instead and first thing I saw was 30-224 on the 97. Pretty much sums up my luck with the STM: seems like I'm just stuck to those shitty ISL9s.

Took 30-882 and 32-809 (NT) on the 121 today. The former sounds like a tractor (very choppy sound from the engine) and this thing couldn't even maintain a steady 30 km/h on Côte-Vertu...

31-218 was on the 171 for the entire day (on a Saturday...) 🤮.

Stopped briefly by Côte-Vertu today and unsurprisingly, didn't see a single 2nd gen there. Lots of "old" stuff though (yes I somehow bothered to write everything down...):

29-822: 121
30-016: 171
30-247: 64
30-251: 170
30-845: 121
31-055: 128
31-061: 128
31-084: 171
31-168: 171
31-851: 121
32-032: 171
33-809: 470
37-057: 215
40-154:177

As one may see, the 128 and 171 were almost exclusively operated by 31/32 series today. The lone 37 series I saw today was on a SL line.

As I came out of Côte-Vertu station yesterday, 39-055 with cameras instead of mirrors drove across the boulevard to do the 64.

Took 32-029 on the 124. The interior lights are of banana yellow.

31-074 was on the 121I, not tracking like 30-021 on the 175 and 30-022 on the 171.

39-059 was on the 171SN in the afternoon.
