746 has been decommissioned. It was spotted in the city storage compound earlier today.

Its last day of service was March 4th.

There is now only 1 D40LF and 1 bus in the flame livery left in Medicine Hat.

No replacement Vicinities have been spotted yet.

American seating 6468 seat cushions are now being replaced with 4One Aires, and it looks ridiculous.

There appears to be a fire in the bus garage. There are several fire trucks on the scene. No smoke that I can see. Special Transit buses are being moved into the transit terminal.

There is an excavator also on scene, but I believe that's unrelated. I will ask drivers if they know what's going on.

A sign for Highway 3 Connector has appeared in the terminal as well. Service started yesterday, but the sign was covered up then.

Turns out there was a diesel spill at the fuel tanks just outside of the garage. Small fire, no damage (that the driver I talked to could see).

All vehicles were moved as a precaution, which is why the terminal was filled with Arbocs (and 760 @Articulated).

The excavator was, in fact, unrelated.

Found 741 (2000 D40LF, retired 2016?) in a private storage yard today. Several broken windows.

Medicine Hat Transportation Company 728, 736, 738?, and another TGH-3102 are seen parked at the corner of 2nd and 2nd downtown in this undated photo (can't see the date on the license plate).

This picture is on display in the Hull Block (Gaslight Plaza) downtown
