OK, the following 1995 D40LF's have been rebuilt over the past while with #7590 being the first of the series.

7551

7553

7556

7558

7560

7567

7569

7570

7570

7580

7581

7590

7581 is plain white as of yesterday while the rest have all been done up in the older 3 stripe livery at this point.

Noticed 7577 in the shop yesterday with ads and ad holders very recently removed and is probably being prepped to be shipped over to Big Rig Colision for rebuilding.

7574 has just recently returned from rebuild and was up on a hoist inside the shops plain white with no decals or fleet numbers at all on the exterior of the bus. We shall see if this one returns to service plain white, 3 stripe livery, or hopefully the new red livery!

A shot showing #7574 freshly rebuilt and it now seems to be receiving a nice new rebuilt engine too! And then a shot showing my bus from yesterday, #7555.

#7581 is now decalled in the older 3 stripe scheme.

#7591 is now back from rebuild and is in the older 3 stripe scheme.

#7565 was spotted freshly rebuilt at Big Rig Collision this morning waiting to be sent to Spring Gardens.

#7589 was spotted on Lane 19 at SG with ad holders, farebox, and interior ads all missing and most likely waiting to be taken to Big Rig Collision for rebuilding. Also noticed several body parts and other things inside it to go with it to the body shop.

7577 is back and rebuilt and has been back in service at some point.

Early this morning when I finished work I found #7564 plain white and FRESHLY rebuilt and parked by the north fence at SG. Pic attached:

Saw #7555 freshly rebuilt at the body shop at SG yesterday afternoon with no stripes or decals at all.

7568 rebuilt, but the odd thing is that it has LED turning lights on the front

It would be nice to see these units with the new livery but I doubt that'll happen.

they had already re-built several of the units before the new livery came out some

mabe they will start on the 1996's because then they all will be in the livery, as aposed to having only some of the 1995's. this is just a thought

#7552 has just recently returned from rebuilding and is currently plain white.

Wonder if they will apply the new livery. They started to apply the new livery on the older SD160s (unit 2204) by the way....

Spotted 7579 on route 20, a 756? on route 5 downtown at 2115, and another 757? on route 2 NB downtown at 2110. Seems to be a few 1995 LFs turning out for late night runs lately.

Also 7620 on an all night route 1.

You spotted it, did you? I wonder who gave me that bus last night after I changed off another bus! :P I do know who that was and I am thankful for that!! For a 1995, she was a nice bus to drive and was happy to have that bus and it was a much better bus than both those 2003 7800 series D40LF's I had earlier! But I was still quite jealous when I saw 977 running on the route 3 last night on an all night run! 977 arrived at SG past 0100 this morning after working the 3.

Seems to be a few 1995 LFs turning out for late night runs lately.

And 1993's.......!
