what typically happens is that depot logos are slapped over a unit's former yard logo, and over time (rather quickly tbh) the adhesive wears off, be it because of the bus wash or day to day weathering. as has been mentioned, certain yards are slow to relabel (properly or improperly) the "newest" units (MV & WF) however, more times than not, yard logos don't come off when they're affixed to the 'quality control bus' logo. 

It seems like they actually usually remove the logo of the former depot before sticking the new logo on the vehicle. However, a lot of those 2012/13 XD60s at GA have GH/KB stickers underneath. A handful of 2007 Hybrids at QV also have CS decals underneath.

3997 also has an East New York logo visible underneath the Fresh Pond sticker.

Good Morning, Can we leave this portion of the thread only for actual bus moves.. All the answers to the following questions can be referred over to the random thoughts, and the Fleets and depots thread of this forum.

kinda figured that... I believe 1321 is also there too or at the service center being prepped for service.

Yes they are moving fast with the delivery at your garage @lornaevo... Weather getting slightly warmer and also more drivers available...

Delivery of the new fleet has been discussed in this thread.

--------------------------
CP has up to 1325 listed. 1311, 1313, 1321 & 1325 are at the service center. 1319, as noted, is at FR(0023 is in Canada, as this was the JFK/SC/FR training bus). 1301 is still upstate and may be the last bus to get delivered in the entire order.

Does this mean that cp is not getting  there full order of 81 busses off the bat.

I think they're letting FR operators train with them a bit so the learning curve is reduced when they receive their batch. Just speculation on my part.

They are still receiving Prevosts, but at a less constant rate. As now, its starting to spread to other depots very soon.

Not sure what any of that meant.

CP is said to receive the first 25 to eventually junk the 2200s/2800s. I don't think they're gonna get all 82 right off the bat.

1326 is at the service center, that might be their last one for now.

They are most likely scrapping whatever buses are in the worst shape first.

The key word is eventually.

Six have been retired, CP had 18 left. Four of them were retired prior to the delivery of the Prevosts, and two were retired recently.
