Back in the day, the odometer was in the center of the right rear wheel well .  On the dash is the most logical place.

1020 is back on 56 with SS-451 does that mean it came back from shops or going to shops cuz this morning it was on 56 as SS-401

Coming back probably. They come in off an AM piece then either stay for major maintenance if needed while another bus from the same garage pulls out and returns in it's place and does a PM rush piece on the way back. If the bus is fine it just goes back out on the PM rush piece and goes home. That's why these types of moves stay on the routes they do so they can make it the least costly dead milage wise. (28 for 103rd, 126 for kedzie I can't think of what the other garages do off the top of my head. Basically the same type as the SH, SR and SN you see in the rush except instead of storage midday it's maintenance

Computer glitch.  Probably just needs a fix to its software

I'm starting to question if some of the lower #1000's have received a 2nd rehab engine wise that is, I remember seeing #1235 getting rebuilt about 2 months ago at South shops and the bus looked completely brand new when I drove it 2 weeks ago, it only had about 3500 miles on it when I checked the Speedometer and the bus ran great but I don't know if that's misleading because last night I had #1265 and it had just about 325,000 miles on the Speedometer. I wonder if other buses like #1235 have had overhauls in recent months because I rarely see it out on Weekends where 77th mainly uses more #1000's over #7900's during that time frame.

So they have the same setup as they did originally in 2006? Because like #1235 I would only assume that #1000-#1001 have the orignal transmission setup as well with the engine rehab.
