  1. What do you mean? Its a chat. If you want to leave, you can. My parents can comment on what I post, pretty sure thats totally ok.
  2. Yes, @BrightlinerNewFlyer I created, then forgot the password to, so i started using this acc. @R32-DTrain is an account that my parents created. It is totally seperate from mine.
  3. The W77 is technically an express route, just like the BXM4C. so maybe run suburban buses? In terms of New Flyer, could they build a suburban XDE40? or would it be a coach bus (a D4000CL or D4000CT maybe?)
  4. even the 4C? I thought that it did! Yes, the XDE35s would replace all O5s except the BXM4C. Ok, yea I thought not. So their fleet will consist of entirely XDE buses (and whatever replaces the Orion 5s)?
  5. As many of BeeLine's buses are nearing the end of their lives, I thought that it would be a good idea to compile a list of (what I think) are the best replacements for these buses. The current fleet is (soon to be retired in red, not retiring soon in blue😞 2004 OBI Orion V 05.505 2006 OBI Orion VII 07.501 OG HEV 2009 NABI 40-LFW HEV 2018-19 New Flyer XDE60 2003 Neoplan AN460 2005-6 Orion V 05.501 Transit 2008 Orion V 05.501 Suburban Most of the fleet is soon to be retiring. Hence, here are the replacements (replacements in green): 2004 OBI Orion V 05.505 New Flyer XDE35 (1st choice) Alexander Dennis Enviro200H 33 ft (2nd choice) Gillig BRT HEV 35 ft (3rd choice) 2006 OBI Orion VII 07.501 OG HEV New Flyer XDE40 (1st choice) Nova Bus LFS TL40102A HEV or Nova Bus LFX TL40102A HEV (2nd choice) Gillig BRT HEV 40 ft (3rd choice) 2009 NABI 40-LFW HEV New Flyer XDE40 (1st choice) Nova Bus LFS TL40102A HEV or Nova Bus LFX TL40102A HEV (2nd choice) Gillig BRT HEV 40 ft (3rd choice) 2003 Neoplan AN460 577 will be replaced by 322, an XDE60 2005-6 Orion V 05.501 Transit New Flyer XDE40 (1st choice) Nova Bus LFS TL40102A HEV or Nova Bus LFX TL40102A HEV (2nd choice) Gillig BRT HEV 40 ft (3rd choice) 2008 Orion V 05.501 Suburban MCI D4500CTH (1st choice) Nova Bus LFS TL40102A HEV Suburban (2nd choice)
  6. Surprisingly, they still list the D4000CL on their roster as well. I doubt either bus will sell well.
  7. Once I rode the entire Hudson Line from Croton to GCT in the cab, and the conductor didn't even bat an eye. Although I didn't blow the horn.
  8. @davemackey @553 Bridgeton Will NJT get any D45 CRT LEs or not?
  9. I can't access it. I'll also post a screenshot.
  10. Ok. Would it utilize the Wards Island Bridge or not?
  11. yea true. Still working on that map,so hold on. One MASSIVE flaw, however, is that for the Queens span of the RFK and the Wards Island Bridge is that they are really only wide enough for a single track. With the RFK, sure, we could widen it, but not sure about the Wards Island. The Wards Island bridge is 12 ft wide, that is wide enough for two just-under-5-ft-wide tracks, but are there trams that are less than 6 ft wide? because the maximum you could have safely is probably 5.5 ft.
  12. I know lol. I was just wondering what company's buses they would use, and the MTA was the only company that I know of. With which company? Yeah, ole boy is simply being fanatical & not being realistic with that.... It's like an entrepreneur having lofty expectations of starting up a business with establishments in multiple locations in the busiest parts of the city or something...... Money costs money. I know that these buses are more expensive, but we need to save the earth. I recently watched a documentary that showed how the world will be a dead place soon if we don't switch to the greenest of green energy. diesel is dying. electric buses are the future, and we need to embrace them.
