  1. The Big Red Book provides guidance for bus operators in London; here are links to several editions: https://www.transportforall.org.uk/files/bigredbook2014.pdf https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/400019/response/975791/attach/3/Big Red Book v4.pdf?cookie_passthrough=1 https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/33803/response/86272/attach/3/BRB Final version.pdf?cookie_passthrough=1 https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/142169/response/348364/attach/3/Big Red Book 2012.pdf?cookie_passthrough=1
  2. If anyone has an operators manual or participant's guide for an R143, R160 or R179 please email me (sandero2039@gmail.com); original hard copy, legible photocopy or a scanned e-copy would be perfect. Thanks!
  3. While not specifically devoted to NYCT, this website has some very interesting info about all types of railway signalling subjects: http://position-light.blogspot.com/2020/
  4. That R142A manual must be an interesting read. Anyone have an idea where I could get a similar manual for an R143 and an R160?
  5. Here's a link to MTAB dest. sign codes: http://forum.bustalk.info/viewtopic.php?t=2073&sid=eed7cbadb9f11085edc6315942d59393
  6. IIRC the NYCT Bus Roadeos in 2005-2007 ran from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM each day. You guys probably know this, but this year the MTAB and NYCT Roadeos will be combined into a single event on 6/21-6/22. For those who have not yet attended one, I sincerely recommend it. For bus fans, there is a lot to see and do: check out select members of the Vintage Bus Fleet (not all of them are displayed, but there are always a few; maybe the MTAB historical buses will be on display,too), see the latest buses on display (so spotless that you'd think you were at the NY Auto Show), ride an antique bus on one of the aircraft runways at Floyd Bennett Field, see the B/O's out the RTS's through their paces in the Roadeo obstacle course. Military aviation buffs can visit the adjacent museum in an old hangar, and model RR fans can see the Brooklyn Model Railroad Club working their huge, elaborate layout. It is a very cool, family type event with lots of friendly people who like buses.

    Hi! I'm a veteran poster at Bus Talk. I'd just like to say hello to the crew at NYC Transit Forums. See you down the road, Q65A
