    "10-car testing scheduled for 1st Quarter 2018" I wonder if a new 10-car set will be entering service between now and march...and which line will it be debuting on lol? Side note @Cait Sith someone had posted a link to the board meeting materials and this was included; but given the TA's track record everything is subject to change...

    2930-3049 was m2fwannabe's idea on how to number the additional cars we got from the settlement, nothing Official. Btw knowing how lazy the MTA can be at times they might just add the extra 16 to what they had before to get the R179 fleet numbers 3010 to 3325...relax just my speculation nothing Official...lol

    Nova Bus/Prevost News & Current Events

    As it's stated Nova LFS "Signature look" Created a blind spot on the driver side hence the change in design for the Phase 2 deliveries of our upcoming LFS 40 & 60. However I got to give effort where its due on the MTA's part for requesting such a change in this Model. I mean in my opinion that "signature look" was a design flaw from day one; crazy how the other consumers of the Nova LFS never cared enough to request this change sooner...I thought one of Volvo/Nova's goal was "SAFETY" so how this design lasted this long is remarkable. On the bright side however I personal think this is a step in the right direction for Nova, hopefully they take it a step further and update the front end on a 5th gen LFS, lol ....

    It almost seems like they were trying to couple the two together... it's just odd they can't couple all the NTTs together like they could with R32/R42..

    R211 Discussion Thread

    By this logic Buses should follow suit and feature less seats then people won't complain about being flagged.... Personally I love Gangway trains like the next person but sharp turns effect the passage through the gangway; The R211 mock up on display features a low ceiling gangway that the average person in height would hit there head on.... I don't know but simple common sense would let anyone know you shouldn't use OpenBVE to validate whether or not a idea is efficient....

    You and I wouldn't know what they decided on base of the initial phase of conceptualising the prototype...they could've decided against some of the system constraints to make a more fluid design... for now I'll wait before I past anymore judgement...

    R211 Discussion Thread

    All jokes aside the R211 cars are going to be High tech Cattle cars...between all the LCD screens,the interactive maps and LED lighting featured in this design, the reduction in seating is going to be problematic at best.Riders already complain about seating on the recently made rolling stock, the R211 will only Sky rocket those complaints.... And the Gangway is another point of contention forget about standing or moving through the gangway if you are taller than average the space is meant for shorter riders...Don't know if they can redesign gangway itself maybe because of system constraints but the Gangway Cars are going to be treated like the current 75 footers being that they can't run on lines with sharp turns defeating the gangway hype IMO... hotmess!

    R32 Fleet Swap Discussion Thread

    Here are my thoughts on the situation: : R46s and R179s (5-Car sets) : R32s & R46s : R32s & R160s (4-Car sets) : R160s : R160s & R179s : R46s & R68/As

    This don't add up... 40+160+120 = don't equal 300 R179s on order... you math is 20 cars more than what was ordered...
