Hey that D700A that you took a picture of, where is it located in real life? I always wanted to see one of these buses in real life.

EDIT: That GM Artic Paperbus in your gallery has a tiny error. The rims/wheels are gray on the real things while your papermodel is red.

Also is that model of 9807 real? Is it really in the maple leaf livery?

EDIT Once again: NVM This corrects me. Link I have heard a rumour that OC has got some Vs in the Maple Leaf Livery. Never saw any proof though.

If you look at the picture of the D700A, you see at the bottom corner that I didn't take that picture. The picture was taken at St Laurent garage in the early 90's after its retirement.

As for the GM Artic paperbus, yes I know the rims are grey. I didn't do the paperbuses, but next time I print one out, I'll be sure to change the rim color.

The paperbus of 9807 is not real, as 9807 is in the 'KFC' livery and not maple leaf. Only 2 Orion V's in the 97-98 built series have the maple leaf scheme. They are 9849 and 9850. On the other hand, just about all the 91-92 built Orion V's were repainted into the maple leaf scheme.

The rims on 8222 are actually red, not grey. The only buses that have grey rims are the Inveros, Orion VI's, the LFS and the D60LF's. All the Fishbowl's/Classic's/V's/D40's that have been re-painted have red rims.

I saw a picture with it having gray rims...

From this picture seems like the front rims are gray and the middle is red. Dunno about the rear.

Okay rear picture. Only front has gray rims. Rest are red.

What I think they should paint the Artics as is just forget putting anything red before the joint and just leave it white. That way it doesn't look like two seprate buses put together.

Actually, your right. I should have checked my picture I took of it this summer before replying. The rims are red and not grey. For some reason when they just had painted 8222 in Maple Leaf, they have the front rims only in the grey paint. When OC Transpo operated GM artic back in the day, the rims were red as well.

I was looking through your 93XX Novabus Classics section and I see every single one got LED Designation sign so that got me wondering, did the Novabus Classics come with LED or did OC just pick them to retrofit?

IIRC, they originally came with rollsigns

I thought so :P

Also yeah as I posted on the OC Bus Spotting list I plan to ride the Classic Suburb. Whatever route it comes on, 94 or 98. I'm prepared. I got the times of all the buses to come back all sorted out.

OC was still ordering buses with rollsigns in 93? Strange...

The 1993 Classics were the last buses delivered with the roll signs.

Wasn't the Ex-TTCs the last ones delivered with roll signs? Or did we retrofit them with roll signs.
