    5210 is at Flatbush, I seen it in the employee parking lot, I think it has a defect or needs parts.

    Not a fan of Fresh Pond XD40s coming to ENY... The windows on Fresh Pond buses are dirty as hell.

    Probably so photographers can photograph the 16, Slants ran on the Brighton as recently as the late 2000s, getting a photo of one on that line isn't as interesting as the 16. Also the 16 along with the 10 are far more unique cars than post goh 38s & 40 slants IMO. It does suck for the kids though, I remember back when the Slants were still in service and I was at the RFW and this kid wanted to look out the window, he was scared to ask me if he could stand there, I overheard him and stepped back to let him look out the window. At this point there was plenty of 160s in service so the Slants days were numbered, so I was glad a younger kid got to enjoy that view before the cars were gone for good.

    They sit there and get cannibalized for parts, etc, but they are actually scrapped somewhere else, one place is Garshaw in Long Island, they tear the bus apart with a big ass tractor. Video below is an example of what they do Usually a Tow truck take them from ECH to the scrap yard.
  10. They put a JCpenny in KP that opened last month... one of my favorite stores, I have yet to visit the KP location though. I prefer KP over Gateway mall because its easier to get to from where I live (B103 to the B46) the B82 & B83 one of those routes always have some kind of delay in at least one direction when I go to Gateway SMH, plus I prefer indoor malls over outdoor ones. Gateway is too spread out. The Shoprite there is GOAT though, if I had a car that would be my main place to buy groceries..

    Speaking of the Parade of trains... the 40 Slant set might make an appearance, rode by 207th Yard today and its in the set with the 10, 16 and 38 cars, The 10 and 16 are on the ends of the train while the 38's & 40 Slants are sandwiched in between.

    Photo taken by Edward Hand https://flic.kr/p/L1Mfof https://flic.kr/p/JuJNiv ^^^ this photo is interesting because they don't want LIRR employees photographing the train.

    Video of the M9 set at Yonkers (Not mine) I suspect later on today there will be video of the M9 actually moving since they supposedly went on a rest run today, like what was mentioned in the post above.

    Its B/O's doing overtime driving the shuttles, probably some Extra list B/O's as well. Their dispatched from the same depots the regular buses run out of. There's usually a dispatcher at the terminals of the subway shuttles making sure everything runs smoothly.
