it’s a possibility just like they kept 1122 and 1135 but sent 1161 1166 1169

Just was thinking in terms of if Fg ever got the #1000's up to #1079. They have 95 #1000 buses so it's not a big leap to say that. I wonder if the last 15 #6400's are coming back. SS is reported empty of #6400's so where are they?

Well from what I've seen in the boneyard only 4 recently active FG 6400s haven't returned back to FG. Two out of the four I saw visibly were used to fill runs while the other two are still getting work done on them. The only 6400s left are the ones only on fence.

in my opinion FG should just get 1000-1100 and send some more novas from the 8231-8324 pack to 103rd

Yeah they are, they haven't moved since there retirements. 

Actually they have moved about the scrap pile several times over the years, last time about 2015.

So 77th is definitely short buses right now and seeing #1980,#1987,#8120,#8193,#8211 and #8241 all pop up today is no surprise.

Dam y'all must also have a bunch of buses down also

8225-8228 & 8230 appears to be a permanent move to 74th. Unlike the artics that moved to 77th & chicago garages, these now have the "6" sticker.

Kind of surprising seeing they picked up so many artics. Maybe they have the problem of operators not being artic qualified or there are some who don't want to drive them. Notice all the new temp buses are everything but artic.

the problem is the heavy routes 77th has (Ex: 79th,  87th, 4 cottage grove, 3 king drive)

from what i seen at NP’s 1345-1383 and 1387 they all have “P” on them and FG’s 8080 8090 8091 8212 8218 8220 8231-8235 all have “F” 

1589 1594 1597-99 are in the phase of getting the “F”

I guess 1987 is back from Cummins then.
