Some rumour I heard for the former Kamloops with Cummins engine D40LF 9867 & 9868 were transferred to Victoria, does anyone can confirm for that about these 2 unique D40LFs??

9867 is here, with the Cummins engine. I saw it going by on the Rt 30 today.

@Cathay 888 Excellent quality photos! What camera do you use?

Looking through the EXIF info, he uses a EOS 50D.

Thank you... I am stuck with only a point-and-shoot here.

Bit late to report on this news story, but BC Transit is taking delivery of 11 Arboc shuttles this year. Distribution is reported as follows:

- 3 units to 100 Mile House;

- 4 units to Alberni-Clayoquot Custom Transit System (Port Alberni);

- 2 units to Cranbrook;

- 1 unit to Salt Spring Island;

- 1 unit to Merritt.

100 Mile House and Port Alberni will have their entire fleets swapped out, likely for consistency as the new Arbocs will be gas-powered; the current buses will get transferred to other communities to replace whatever 2010 Arbocs are still around, along with any Polars still in the contingency fleet. Cranbrook may have both of their Arboc units transferred out as well, unless their Sprinter is getting replaced. The one bus each for Salt Spring Island and Merritt are probably to expand their spare ratios; Salt Spring Island particularly had 5 Polars replaced by 4 new Arbocs last year.
