Actually thats an Accessible violation if you saw a Fishbowl on 39...

Not if its the 39E, a New Look on the 39E is very common heck its possible to see a D901 there. Same goes for 53E, its the only reason you'll see a lot of Fishbowls at Finch. Midday Finch is essentially an Orion station with occasional RTS and the lone Fishbowl for 125.

Wraps: T1 5182-83 & 5196-97 have been wrapped for Garnier. 6430 has been unwrapped from the Blue Jays wrap. But 7457 was on 5, still wrapped for Blue Jays.

26xx: 2609, 2611 & 2613 were active on the 96 this morning. Has anybody have seen 2605? The last time it was in service was July 31.

bad news about 2605, It is in the dead line at Arrow, i made a trip by the garage today.

2615 was sitting outside the garage too (but not in the dead line)

Is the dead line at the back of the garage or in the front?

It's in the front, it's visible from the parking lot. The retired buses are parked nose-in to a concrete barrier, recent retirees at the back, which is where 2605 was. 2607 was near the front as it's been out of service for a while.

Damn, I wish they would just leave the ex-Montrealers alone and let them live on... :o

Does that mean were down to 5 left? (2600, 2609, 2611, 2613 and 2615)

Amen, hopefully your visit wont be too late!

I really hope so! Everyday that goes by, my reading about another one retiring! The main one that I'm hoping will be there till the end of next week is 2600.

As in Malvern Base...........two fishbowls got a "stop sign" stuck in between the windshield and the wiper - 2057 and 2821............also earlier tonight I've seen TTC 6006 on rt.224 around 8pm making a left turn from Woodbine to whatever street that was (couldn't remember the street name :o ) For me it's my first time seeing a D901 out at night, is that a special sighting?

They may stay out late but I believe 9:30pm is roughly when the last ones return to Malvern garage. After that time you would not be expecting any D901s to be out.

Yeah they generally do not stay out late, there was one out late last night on the 131 though. It passed my place around 1 this morning, sorry didn't get the number.

iirc stop sign is telling the operators not to use those buses. 505 had to be detoured this afternooon due to a fire near Spadina and Dundas West.

2017 is NIS

2017 was still in service on the 165. When I seperated from you guys at York Mills, I saw it going eastbound on Wilson back to the station. I guess they told the driver to deadhead so the driver could get back on time.

7668, on the 84 this afternoon, went out of service at Downsview Stn around 6:00 as a passenger with crutches fell as he was entering the bus.

1072 is here, and on the 84A this afternoon.

2600 is also out today. 2072 was on 130. I got videos of those 4 2600s and 2017.

For those watching Orion VII movements 7819 was on 190. Looks some trading is going on at Birchmount.

The 96 was pretty interesting today. When I was at Wilson today at 4 PM, the first three westbound buses were all ex-Montrealers while the first four eastbound buses were all Nova RTS's (7200, 7203, 7235, and 7249).

It seemed like Arrow put every single type of bus they have out on 96 today. I saw both a diesel Orion VII and a hybrid Orion VII during the rush.

That is usually a regular for the 96. I found that there were more Novas and New Looks on 96 and 165 during the midday today, I'm not sure if that happens everyday.

Saw 2720 heading westbound on Finch and Warden around 10pm just now.........most likely on a rt.39 (couldn't see the sign clearly) another *accessibility violation* (which is awesome! ;) )

2858 was also on a 95E today.
