I'd hope so, there is such a backlog at SS lately. The south fence is over crowded with OOS buses. That's why some keep getting parked defunct in the boneyard until further notice depending on the bus condition.

it’s also the summer season where you will see crap ton of buses at SS for maintenance

#4315 was at SS tonight on the 79th fence but I think that was the only artic up there. 

There's a couple of more lined up behind it. #804 has also been removed from the boneyard.

It may have been!. I was SB on the Ryan at 47th, so I didnt get a good enough glance at it  But it clearly was the Proterra

I was surprised to see #600 back there along with #1125. @BusHunter #1257 was the bus number for the fishbowl you were asking about a few weeks back.

I wonder why they put the license plate on the bumper of the #600's. When that pops off, (the bumper should be in 3 sections) that license plate will pop off with it.

That might be temporary for now.

I adjusted the cta bus roster, added #4037 SS to 77th, #4332 SS to 103rd, #6679 SS to FG, #1719 NP to 74th. That's all the changes I could find.

#4105 has left the boneyard to finally receive its long overdue maintenance, the bus was dead though so it had to receive a push to the shop. #804 is no where to be found, #1757 has major fire damage on the left from something so it will be out a while. #7914 and #7972 have been OOS for a month now. #6755 has also returned to SS again.

Oh Hell yeah!!! Would be so awesome to see these run again one day!  Wish they would just donate them to IRM if they cant get them to run  Its like seeing living CTA history.  I can still remember my dad driving these out of North ave Garage when I was a kid

That's awesome! I feel the only way to make that happen is by getting enough public support to restore what they have and finally form a partnership with IRM.

IRM really needs volunteers for the bus department.  I've seen no action going on there while I've been at IRM volunteering for the electric cars department.

#1757 was in the shops up on the lift getting repairs from what I saw this past thursday evening,#7914 and #7972 are a mystery for now but they do still sit in the garage bays with #6470. #7914 seems to be filled with garage maintenance equipment. Also #804 has reappeared along the south fence this early Sunday morning, I dont know if the bus still runs or not though.
