From the registration in the photograph and the fact that 6783 has not been on bustracker since August 2016, WB-2 is 6783.

According to bus tracker 6705, 6784, 6870 and 6873 were on the 78 at 3:30pm yesterday. I know some buses spend periods not tracking but not 2.5 years.

Are they just pulling buses off the dead line now? I haven't had 6783 on the active list nor looked for it on a daily basis. It's been labeled "Retired".

BW62 sat for years under 61st yard. 4290 MAN also was there plus an old 300. They still there or also moved somewhere? 

I havent seen them. Next time I'm over there I'll give it the detailed look. I was noticing they got some green steel girders though on the south end of the yard. They almost look like the original color.

Would make sense they have enough spares they can use the newer 6400s.

Your list says 6703 is in service, and it was retired long ago.

All the old novas that out (39) are at SS 6466 and a whole bunch of them are sitting where the retired ones are so they are retired 6466 and up I think we can say they are officially retired

6577 is at JP 

Actually its at SS retired with a host of others....There's at least 3 New flyers back there that are retired #1305 is one but the other I couldn't identify. #1805 has moved all around the facility and may receive work on the front end soon but i'm quite curious about the other ones back there. All photos today were taken by me by the way.
