    New Flyer D60s 5533 and 5534 have been renumbered to 116 and 117 respectively in anticipation of the incoming new Nova LFS Artics. Which means that the other 5500-Series (and up to 5602) still on the property that are not planned to be retired will be renumbered as well. (Not my photos)

Here is the most accurate fleet information right now, especially about the D60HFs left in service) Click For Roster
