  1. No decals, no radios, no fareboxes They were legit there
  2. He's an operator out of Yukon. It was probably an internal memo that was sent out
  3. If it's anything like they did with the experiment in the only the B cars (no cabs) will have no seats/flip up seats. The A (cab) cars will retain the seats.
  4. There's no standees allowed on the CNG cruisers because of weight restrictions.
  5. Yeah it has the multicolored version of the signs in the Prevosts
  6. That was in the before era, back when the site host had to change. You should remember, you've been here just about as long as I have lol Haven't had a good thread purge in ages, might just look into that
  7. Skip-stop is still being done east of the junction
  8. To be safe, use one per person. Don't even have to be anything on it lol
  9. In a rather odd move, 6845 and 6846 are both sitting in LGA
  10. Lol you would think they would get the Franklin shuttle first since there's only 4 stations and 2 entire trains on the line
  11. Lol my bad, I was thinking of the Bx6...Bronx is No Mans Land to me
  12. He wants only the Limited trips to use artics, and that just isn't feasible without completely changing the way every single run is set up. I'll use an example... Operator X starts his day and his first trip to Hunts Point is on the local. Going by his logic, he naturally should get a shorty (we'll say 7746). He finishes his first trip, and his next trip going to Washington Heights is also a local. Finishes that trip also with no problem. Now his next trip to Hunts Point is a limited trip. Once again, going by his logic, he's supposed to have an artic. Operator X has 7746 and has a limited trip to do to Hunts Point. Now what is he to do? That's the whole point I'm trying to make...
  13. Local routes and their respective SBS counterparts are considered separate routes for a reason. Your whole day is either on one or the other. Besides, the entire line is 100% artics I've already explained to you the other day about local and limited routes
  14. It's not feasible given the way many of the runs are set up. You could do a trip one way as a limited, and your next trip out could be a local, and vice versa.
  15. A few years ago. 5658 had a scaffolding (and part of a building) fall on the back half of it on the Bx15, while 5656 crashed on the Bx19. They took the front half of 5658 and the back half of 5656 and made a "new" 5656. The bad halves of both buses (presumably renumbered 5658, not that it matters) were put together (for a lack of a better term and sat at Eastchester. Fun fact... Unrelated to those 2 incidents, 5657 caught fire so at one point 5656-5658 were all out of service at the same time.
  16. It could be a simultaneous test and have both run at the same time.
  17. If they really are in that need of the bus and are frugal about it, they can take the back half of 5299 (the one that went head-first into a building) and mate it to the front half of 1205 and make a "new" bus, like what they did to 5656/5658. But since we have artics coming in, there's really no need for either bus and they'll be written off.
  18. No one knows yet. I mean they can fuse the front half of 1205 with the back half of 5299 (see 5656) and make a new bus from that, but it's the MTA we're talking about here.
  19. I like how they updated the FIND on the to reflect the (announcing it at Bway Jct, shuttle bus at Myrtle-Wyckoff), but they still never fixed Atlantic Av.. still showing that the station has an elevator lol
  20. Logically they wouldn't since it has thousands of less miles under it's belt, but knowing them they'll still scrap it with the others when the time comes. Way too early to tell, they barely reached half their useful lifespan
  21. The NovaBus plant upstate is where the bus itself was built. The Prevost service center in Jersey is where incoming Prevost/NovaBus buses to before they get shipped to Zerega. After going up in a blaze of glory, it got towed back to Castleton for investigation. After getting the all-clear it went upstate to get fixed, then shipped to the service center for the final go-around, then to Zerega to get re-registered (still had the old plates) and finally shipped to QV to hit service.
