oh I thought all of the orion V were rebuilt and repainted looooong ago since I left St Cath in 3 years back.......so 9159 is still in service w/ new scheme or retired? Thank you

Any 88's Classics retired after the arrival of the DE40LFR?

That's correct, 0713 was omit from the fleet managers decision!

Hello all,

New here, anyways about visiting the transit garage, is an appointment necessary? Or can I basically show up and look around. I've never been there before, but I want to get there soon before the Classics are all gone. Any info is greatly appreciated

cheers, Bill

I just showed up and asked.

However there is one requirement, they wouldn't let me in unless I had steel tipped boots. Fortunately at the time I had a pair in the car!

Was at work today when I noticed that 2 of the New Flyer D40's had a white back end to them above the tail-end ad. It looked to be poorly spraypainted as I could still see some black behind it and the criss-crossing lines of paint were clearly visable. Has anyone else seen this? This is the first time I noticed it. Thinking it might be vandalism?

I also managed to see all 08's in the terminal within 5 mins, which is pretty rare. :blink: Just a side note

cheers, Bill

well with the saturday daytime schedule and the use of the 08s seeiing all of them in the terminal at the same time isnt that rare to be honest....i went down last saturday during the day and got some great photos.

as for the vandalism i will have to look into this and report back.

The first one I saw might have been one of the 100's. It looked like it but I'm not sure on that one. The other one I saw from a distance. Both were on the 115 Pen Centre/Downtown in the morning time if you know which numbers were on that route at the time. Other than that I'm unsure of the numbers. I'll look out for them today while at work and report back

lol about the all the 08's at once being rare, i meant its rare for me because I always see a huge mix of different types. I've never managed to see all of one type at one time, but maybe thats just because I'm not there at the right time lol. I'll have to keep a look out.

cheers, Bill
