One of the major issues for doing the current fleet is the body rust. Unlike El Paso who see next to no salt on the road, if at all. The current fleet does and how much of the body has to be cut away to deal with the rust from the salt?Or we could just spend that money on new vehicles with a decent MDBF and which are not "barely accessible".
I see that 4230 is at Roncesvalles this morning after being at Russell yesterday. Transsee does not show it signed in today. Is it possible that As are doing tripper runs without showing up on Nextbus/Transsee? Because otherwise why is 4230 being shuttled here and there?
I agree it best to sped money on new cars that are better than we have today for MDBF. I have seen a list of cars out of actions and far too long except for the ones that have been derail or in an accidents.
No idea on the 4200's cars except less than 10 are left and a fair number of the other ones are missing parts at Russell. We will have to wait to see if any hit service this summer as plan.
