  1. Never easy to start a motorcoach line in the Western US, but good to know that when the local news publishes a hit piece, our industry stands with Inland Streamliner. Original: https://www.rgj.com/story/news/2019/06/05/reno-company-promises-bus-rides-vegas-phoenix-inland-streamliner-reddit-german-flag-tickets/1301466001/ Rebuttal: https://www.streamlinerlines.com/slanderous/. In some locations, not all parts of the above websites are accessible. If inappropriate for this forum, please move. The truth vindicates us!
  2. Looks nicer, but not really that much different in practice. Remember, they still offer just 3x weekly on the Ocean and 2x or 3x weekly on the Canadian. Are those the same rolling stock as Brightline?
  3. Greyhound D4505 burned to a crisp in Oakland: https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Greyhound-bus-catches-fire-on-Oakland-freeway-no-13437227.php
  4. Trying to figure out where @davemackey gets his MCI VIN information. I'm trying to trace some MCI units by VIN, in particular 1M8SDMTA2RP046640. Apparently it was delivered to Kerrville as #229, but Kerrville says they never had a #229.
  5. This is a modified J4500, not a D4500. It has the spiral staircase of the J4500, the fiberglass shell of the J4500, and its dimensions are just like the J4500: Overall Length: 45' 7" (same as J4500, but D4500 has 45' 5") Wheelbase: 315" (same as J4500, but D4500 has 318") GVWR: 54000 lb (same as J4500, but D4500 has 50000 lb) Turning Diameter: 40' 11" (same as J4500, but D4500 has 47' 0" or 51' 9" with the tag axle locked) Fuel Tank: 183 gal usable (same as J4500, but the current D4500 has 164 gal) So MCI should have called it the J45 CRT LE, not D45 CRT LE, and it's actually probably better for commuter service since its turning diameter is a lot less than the D4500. It also rusts less because it's completely fiberglass on the outside.
