  2. This went over my head for some reason. Yes, rotary lifts. For lifting buses. What is interesting? It should be cheaper with no installation, I get that. Is it supposed to signify something else, too?

    (Serious question. And I predict I'll look quite the fool once I get the answer.)

    I just  said interesting because they look interesting... 


    Different from the Steril koni lifts theyve been using for years

  3. Excellent pics!



    Great ones!



    Nice Orion 5 Code Breaking! 



    Looking nice.



    Cool pics!



    Nice! Dmouse said that that bus would go to Stengel after maintenance because it is too beat.


    Thanks & yep.

    I remember when Orion V's at QV's. I used to see them all the time on Q27, Q43, Q46, Q83 and Q88. I also remember JA having some too. I remember the Q4,Q5,Q17,Q30 and Q85 with them as well. Brings back the good times.


    Those were the days man...



    Wow!Thats my home route and Destination!Ill gladly ride one of these on the :bus_bullet_b64: !











    No problem, you're welcome. would love to see this on the (B64) too

  4. 6220 is getting worked on a Jamaica, it'll head to Casey Stengel when done. 

    6286  is @ QV but for maintenance reasons. 

    They're at jamaica & QV for:

    Maintenance so they can go to Stengel who we're helping out because these buses are so beat. We are only inspecting, working on them, cleaning them and pretri ping them


    They won't hit service @ QV or JAM


    When they get to Stengel then they will hit service

  5. You're a BMA??


    Not necessarily Assistant/apprentice


    i've been working with them, assisting them, doing misc. tasks for the foreman, they've been teaching me and showing me how to inspect the buses, fix things like a broken mirror, apply decals or use my electrical skills.Just one of the many things I do at QV other than clerical work.

  6. Hmm well what has Dmouse been up to at QV?

    Inspected/Pre-tripped 8756 on Wednesday


    I also added the lettering to the back, as there was just a (MTA) logo there


    Also I completely did 8803's rear. It didnt have any of the stickers, just MTA logo again.


    Surprised the stockroom had the old  school do not turn on right sticker...

    I don't remember doing this...
