In addition the following buses were at South Holland for disposal on 10/14;

2629, 2630, 2667, 2687, 2718, 2719, 2768, 2773, 2780, 2814, 2817 and 2820

Total 12

So 2621 and 2627 are the last original Fox Valley buses left and if they go down, I doubt they'll be replaced.  Now if the other 2600s  up there retire, then that may be a different story.  

River appears to be set for now until more 22500s come in later since the transfers to them compensated for the loss of some of their buses.

SW and NW:  I didn't see any replacement 2600s so I'm guessing they're going all in on the 40 foot El Dorados.  And since the original route cuts from 2020 appear to be permanent, there's a surplus of those so any more that retire, likely won't hurt too much.

The other question is how many were assigned to FT and MV for feeders. Other than those on 711, 715, and those reassigned to Divisions, they are sitting somewhere. I haven't closely tracked them, but that has to be 50 something, pretty low mileage.
