I saw an Orion V (along with a Cutaway and D40LF) in a bus terminal off Princess Street on Monday, on my way to the Wolfe Island Ferry.

That would be 9202, its the Orion V left.

I asked this morning about 9202, but no one could tell me anything, no wonder if it is still in service!

I can tell you that 9095 is also in service, saw it on the 6 today.

Orion VIII where on Princess street did you see it? The only terminal that comes to mind is at the Kingston Centre.

That must have been the terminal. It was perpendicular to the street and the Cutaway was facing south, D40LF north and the Orion V was exiting the terminal. I didn't know the V was significant, or I would have stopped.

Tsk tsk. You should read this thread more often. Should be gone later this year I am told when 3 or 5 (don't know which yet) New Flyers arrive.

Saw 9202 today at the Cataraqui mall.

Does anyone know what model bus 0312 is?

Im amazed nobody posted this, the sole survivor Orion V 9202 has retired, ending the Orion V era with KIngston Transit :)

It is not retired. I saw it today

I saw 9202 today in service on Route 6. It looked clean, but I don't think it was a new paint job. If it did get a new paint job, it got the old blue and black stripes, not the new blue and orange stripes.

A few of us stopped in Kingston to get some bus action after the Belleville charter and we didn't really expect to see HF action on a Saturday, but we were wrong! The following were all spotted in service:

8790 - weekend GM Classic action and oldest bus in fleet!

8870

8867

8868

8869

9095

9202 - last Orion V in service

Sunday is the only day in Kingston that you don't see a HF an the road. Saturday service is the same as any weekday.

Did anyone that went bother going to the garage? A few of us did and man did we ever get good treatment!

Still lucky you guys got the Orion V in service..we didn't...oh well!

Did they let you in?

To be honest I thought they would be closed!

Yes they let me and a few others in.

Can you please tell me what was in the deadline?

Should be 9196, 8761, 9297, and a couple others.

There were 6 buses in the deadline:

0625

9298 (cut open - they found frame was collapsing)

9299 (frame corrosion)

8761

8894

9196

Some photos:

Where the numbers on 0625 painted out? I heard it maybe repaired, but after this time if it is still sitting there it may be done.

No, we didnt even bother to try there. We opted to try some inservice action. We started at Caterioque Ctr. where we saw 9809 and 8790. After there, we headed downtown where we really lucked out. It didn't take long for us to see the classics as there were some in and out of downtown eve. 15 min. rts 6 and 12 seemed to be the best as ev. rt 12 we saw was a classic and rt 6 also had classics and 9202( Orion V)!

When we were on our out way to the hwy, we did swing by the yd and did see some of those buses you go to see close up. (Nice pics BTW!) :P
