Why are retired Novas being used as Instruction Buses?

My immediate thought is that according to sw4400 updated garage roster FG has 71 active 6400`s. I don`t fore-see these 6400`s being retired soon. Some present operators and new hires  still have to qualify to operate them.

There's also the notion that many trainees may  have never driven something as large as a 40' bus. The retired buses serve to familiarize the trainee with driving "a bus." If they happen to have a little scrape at least it is a 20 year old bus, not one of the newest buses in the fleet.

6854 is at 77th and so is 8117. I think it is a one day loan. 

When I see buses from other garages work 7 routes I say 7 needed a bus for a run & when over to SS & snatch a bus
