Recommended Posts

Hey all, i am out in Frederiction for my grandmas funeral and i stoped by the garage for a short visit and here is a bit of info.

Classic 8861 is retired with 8862 to follow shortly.

8081 is the newest Nova and they are talking about getting 4-5 more by next year.

that being said, they want to "hopefully" get rid of the 4 1998 RTS by next year as they have really bad frames.

photos to be posted when i get home.

Hmmm... I wonder what is wrong with their frames at such a young age? The RTS used to be known for having very good structures in previous years. Maybe NovaBus didn't build them as well as earlier years? I didn't hear of TTC having any problems with their 1998 RTS coaches. Never heard anything about STO's 2000 units either!

Would you happen to know how many Classics are still active?

I would think that there's probably about 5 or 6 of them left. Some of the older ones are in quite rough shape and will probably be retired soon. One of them (8941) had an issue where the gas tank fell off, so I'm not sure if it will be back.
