  1. Not sure if this was the right place to post this. The MAN Lion's City buses are my favorite. But as I was looking at pictures I noticed every bus has a flat cylindrical object sitting on top of the bus at the rear. 


    I noticed that on the 12m buses there are only 2 but the 18m buses have 4, 2 on each section. 


    I recently found a picture of a 12m CNG bus that has 3 of these objects on the roof 


    In this picture you can see the objects on the roof over the rear sign



    and you can see it again in this picture, the 2 objects are next to the last rooftop emergency hatch




    You can also see it on all of the buses in this picture as well




    I know the MAN Lion'S City buses are most common in Europe and Spain.


    Does anyone what what these objects or devices are? I'm trying to shine some light on this since I have no clue what these objects are. I hoping anyone would know more about these buses than me.

  2. Last week Silverliner V #702 got it's interior wrapped to promote the new American Spirits exhibit at the National Constitution Center. 702 is now the first Silverliner V and Regional rail car to feature a interior wrap. However it's the 3rd train car to ever have one here at SEPTA.


    SEPTA is calling this car the "Speakeasy Silverliner" take a look for yourself!










    I have more pics in my album in photobucket http://s752.photobucket.com/albums/xx166/TRANSIT_FREAK/2010-12%20Hyundai%20Rotem%20Silverliner%20V/

  3. Bolt bus and Megabus have stops a few yards away at 30th st. There is practically no space in Philly for the 2 to join together in one building. I can't stand it when buses transit and trailway terminate in the middle of a block in the middle of a street block and call that their last stop.


    I hate for Megabus to have a major transit hub at that 30th street stop.



  4. I have to say, these are very solid trains, Hyundai Rotem did a fantastic job on them and it does look like the Bambardier M7 in some aspects...


    If you look on Railroad.net SEPTA forum, the other railfans are pointing out how bad the welding is by the front ends of the cars. The welding is bad it looks like you can pull the exterior apart!

  5. How does that work?


    Because the driver is not in the vehicle when you board. Plus they switch drivers at layover when you board. So to make things easier you pay when you get off.


    The only routes you pay when you get off is the victory/red arrow routes that operate at 69th st terminal.


    I caught myself doing the opposite on suburban vehicles. I pay when I get on. :)B)

  6. half cabs. the engineers are angry because we got railfan seats now, like on the EL! They want full cabs. They don't want passenger enjoyment. They want elbow space. :mad::mad::mad:


    I am not sure if the remaining units are gonna be full cabs or half cabs, though.


    The production models will have full width cabs.

  7. Mentioned before and mentioned again a reminder that This week only Tuesday through Thursday the Test models of the Silverliner V will be on display at Suburban station from 11am to 6pm. The married pair 801~802 will be the display cars.


    For more info




    Here is a quick shot I took yesterday while passing by
