Classic 9401

Société de transport de Lévis

Recommended Posts

They already sold #9205, that was repainted in newer RTC livery, to the STL Levis back in 2007, as #9286. :lol:

Sorry to tell you, but RTC 9205 was still in the old livery when sold to STL Lévis. I took this picture at STL's garage two days before 9205 went into STL's paintshop...

In fact, none of the buses sold to Lévis at this time had the new RTC scheme when sold to STL.

:P;);)

Yes, you're right. I was thinking to #9206 for some strange reasons, that was retired this year, even if it was not sold to Levis... :lol:;)

WOW! That 9205 shot is a great catch. It looks like it just arrived at ST Levis.

On a related note, I am going to post a list of the STCUQ-RTC 9100 and 9200 series Classics that were repainted into the RTC scheme. You guys can correct and add if you like! It will be in the RTC thread...Look for it.

Cheers!

Does anybody know where this STL Orion I came from, and what happened to it?

http://www.busfanplace.com/view.php?pict=ts9111.jpg

The Orion I came from Capital Bus Parts, and was only leased for a few weeks in September/October 2006. It was then returned to Capital Bus Parts after. :lol:

As Steve said, it was later sold to Galland in Mont-Tremblant in 2007/2008, for the shuttle service. :lol:

Ah yes, #9111. That bus used to be a regular on the Concordia Shuttle when I started there in Fall 2007. I had always wondered what had happened to it.

I saw it. ;)

Judging from the spec's, that Orion I is original to GET in Bakersfield, CA.

That's what I also find out.

That bus has a lot of history. :P:D;)

Thanks for all your answers guys!

So it would originally have been GET 9111, thus the STL unusual fleet number?

It was originally numbered 9011 when it was with GET, even if the bus is a 1991 unit. Capitals Bus Parts renumbered it 9111 when they first leased it to Lévis. :P

If the union determines that it's necessary, we'll see those Purell units. I wouldn't underestimate this union.

Yes, I was going to talk about that.

A couple of Novabus L.F.S. already have those, just as well as 2-3 Classics.

No buses will be retired before we received the 2010 Novabus L.F.S. (Probably September 2010), since the buses that the STL Levis wanted to retired, are already retired since September 2009, even if we haven't received the 2009 Novabus L.F.S., at the time.

But here are the retired bus;

8826, 9431 (Accident Victim, Retired January 2009), 9051 (Ex. Grand Rapid MI #159) (Retired February 2009), 9053 (Ex. Grand Rapid MI #160), 9059 (Ex. Connecticut Transit #9109) (Retired February 2009), 9161 (Ex. Connecticut Transit #9112), 8867 (Ex. STL Laval #5822), 8868 (Ex. STL Laval #5843), 8869 (Ex. STL Laval #5811), 9171 (Ex. Connecticut Transit #9113), 8972 (Ex. RTL #9-010), 8876 (Ex. STL Laval #5836), 8983 (Ex. Autocars Quebec #89-111) (Retired February 2009), 8985 (Ex. Autocars Quebec #89-107).

Don't you guys took pictures of some of those buses, at the STL Levis garage Yesterday?

There were no retired buses at the Levis garage. The only retired bus is the TMC RTS #9593 out back that is being used for parts storage.

Okay, they probably got towed a few days ago, because there was still about 5 of those parked there, as of Saturday morning.
