The bus I used to drive regularly had its dash odo/speedo replaced at some point. (I think I can guess as to why, too - that bus's twin had a speedo that consistently gave low readings, as in you'd be doing 80 km/h and the speedo would barely be showing 60.) It was quite obvious as the replacement instrument was mismatched with all of the other ones on the dash, and the odo had mechanical numbers as opposed to the original trip odo on the tachometer, which was digital. There was a big sticker next to the speedo that said "Add 131,972 kms". Another company I worked for a few years ago had equipped some of its buses with hub odo's due to the dash units being unreliable, and I stuck notes in those buses reminding drivers to take readings from the hub odo and not the dash odo. Still, invariably, guys would forget.

I'm not sure if Lorenz still has any more MC units in their fleet, I know they used to have at least one with the star livery. 45155 is one of a few all white C2045 roaming about, I think they are second hand units. One had a clear outline on the rear of a name that started with M and had 5 letters.

I spotted Luxury Coach 1412 in downtown Ottawa the night of the 13th. Based on the way they number their buses the first two numbers are the year, so that is a very new bus.
