Has BEEN kiboshed
The 6000-Series Orion 05.501s will remain as they are. The new Nova Bus fleet numbers are now set to be #5770-5999, 1290-1387.
OH, and there is a spec change in the seats on the 1290 and up batch.
That is all...
(I told you guys the MTA changes their minds like MOST of us change our underwear....DAILY!)

3 LFSAs were transferred from Quill this evening - 5827, 5830, and another LFSA.
From what I was told, the Far Rockaway branch of the A train will be down for the next 6 months to undergo repairs from devastation of Hurricane Sandy. They will be running shuttle buses to and from the Rockaways from selected depots, with Flatbush being the closest for access to the Rockaways from Brooklyn.
We're expected to have 3 more later on tomorrow (Saturday).
And I heard we're to have a total of 20, for now. I'll find out more as I hear it.
Training starts this weekend; I'll be taking one of the classes before my run starts Sunday evening.
edit: I'll try to get in early for some pics in backyard with all 6 LFSAs, if possible.

This is the beginning of a series of photos I will be posting back from when I was a teen and first started shooting bus photos with disposable and point & shoot 35mm cameras, before digital..back when you didn't know if you F$&#ed up a photo until AFTER you spent your money developing the roll of flim (God the hobby was so much more expensive back then). So sit back and Enjoy!

Breakdown percentages: E is the best, C is the worst. Oh I can't imagine why that is. Surely it has nothing to do with the fact that the former's cars are less than five years old while the latter's date back to the Johnson administration.
Cleanliness: The 1 is the best, the C is the worst. First off, what constitutes as heavy dirt? Does that solely mean trash on the trains or does that include graffiti, scratchitti, etc. as well? Because if it does, again, 50 year old cars.
Chance of getting a seat: R is the best, 5 is the worst. Well, of course you have a better chance of getting a seat on the R. Most folks bail the R at the first chance they get, either for the E or F on Queens Blvd or the N on 4th Avenue or Broadway. Then to compare it to the 5-line? One of the most used lines in the system? One of the only lines that serves the east side of Manhattan? Come on, of course it's going to be crowded.
Service Intervals: 6 is the best, C is the worst. Again, no duh. Between the Parkchester and Pelham Bay Park trains, the 6 runs the tightest headways in the system. Again because it's one of the only lines serving the east side and the only local on the east side. The C's headways are in part due to the age of its running fleet. The line needs a lot of spares, which limits the amount of trains you can schedule without having to drop some of them. Then there's the question of whether the C needs to run even close to the amount of trains the 6 does anyway.
Announcements: 4 and Q tied for best, 7 is the worst. Again, I'm absolutely floored that the new techs beat out the older fleet for clear station announcements.
All in all, I get that they need to do something for these state of the subways things, but my goodness, can they at least try to bring something new to the table?
