Didn't one of the D30LF's get wrecked in an accident? I don't remember if it ever got fixed or not or if it was scrapped in the end or not.

It might of been 506 since the Streetside guide omits that bus in there 2002/2004 listing. If it was that bus it sure got fixed up quickly.

So are you saying that 506 is back in service?

6V92TA/ VR731
More and more transit system are sticking to LF because of economical issues! Where as HF, it will be a rare to see in much future times!

As of April 2009, I have finally rode Nova Classic T-drive, two types of different engine! Which ones is better? Series 50 all the way man!

2011 Charter: Able to manage to attend as there are some good ones to go for!

When I was in Halifax back in April, I rode one Articulated Classic on route #10.

This from a Metro Transit Driver: "They can be found on any of 4 routes. (two I dunno what they are and this is me talking) You can find them on the 1,10,?? and the ??. But all runs on the 10 are susposted to be articulated buses."

Does this answer your question? BTW the other two routes they run on are near the outskirts.
