it was being branded as the "B-Line " Livery and that they'd only be on that route. 

I don't know when that changed, but when the 08s came in,  the restriction of sorts to the 10  was changed and they were found on the 1 as well as the 25/26 as well as I think the 27/35 and/or the 5A/5C. I could be wrong of the latter.

The artics were definitely being used on King back in '07, pretty much as soon as they entered service. Mind you, it was mainly on weekends, when there was no B-Line, but they were never really completely exclusive to B-Line.

Yeah, I remember that. At the beginning they were used exclusively on the B-Line, University and King on weekends but after a few years they started to make their way over to the 25/26 and 27. Now they pretty much go wherever they're needed so I guess the paint scheme doesn't really mean anything beyond only being on artics. When the 2008 D40LF's were first delivered, the first couple of them had gold paint instead of yellow but they dropped that idea before the rest of the order was even delivered and the gold ones were repainted. I doubt they'd be interested in changing things up at this point, at least until the LRT is running though I'd imagine it'll have its own Metrolinx paint job unless the HSR ends up operating it.

I think you're right. It was probably the closest available replacement bus, and not enough run time left to bring in anything smaller.
Now if we could just see a slinky on 6/7/8 some day...

Buses 2108, 10, 11, 12 and 14 have been plated and cleared for service. They should enter service this afternoon.

EDIT: Here is an update.  2114 will be on route 43; 2110 and 2112 will be on route 20; 2108 will be on route 10/55/58.

Shall anybody be going to ride them? I'm busy.

I got off 2110 a couple minutes ago. The electric doors are nice but very slow when closing (most likely because its new). Theres a new stop announcement scroller it shows the stops in a light blue but the one facing the front is a older one (most likely from unit 0821).
