So after recently canvasing the boneyard I've finally made a list of all of the currently active buses OOS in the boneyard excluding the retired #6400's since more and more of them are starting to get hauled off for scrap now. 

#804

#4003, #4006,#4023,#4027,#4035,#4049,#4056,#4062,#4071

#4153,#4176

#4308,#4320,#4341,#4357

#7929,#7936

#8007,#8012,#8022,#8023,#8043

#8159

A majority of the #8000's have major wreck damage.

But I don't see no dam to 8159 just may need work but the front door is tapped off with caution tape

Just like #6031 I believe was in perfect condition after that deadly bike encounter around 2007-2008 when it was sent to the boneyard and has yet to be hauled off for scrap to this very day, i'm not saying #8159 will serve the same fate but when I examined it nothing stuck out to me that would warrant it to be withheld from service for longer than a year or two.

I remember that but wasn't that the 1 when the lady got off & went to her her bike off the rack & the driver ran her over  & wow can't believe it's still there over 12-13 years later & I see you been over to C so you see how it's just sitting there it's not like how 1972 was with the legal tape on it it just got caution on the front door

Oh yeah I forgot that it was, the other fresh moves bus is back there as well in the fresh moves livery. It hasn't been moved since late 2014 and still has everything intact minus the lines being cut and fluids getting drained.

Sadly, Fresh Moves went under!  It was a great idea!  But just bad management. New boss came in and totally screwed the company eventually losing funding

That explains those two #6400's then sitting near 89th/Mackinaw then.

That was actually a different Fresh Moves company. Not related to the earlier company.
