  1. You were likely on that run that I and everyone else got kicked off of and went back in service at the next stop completely empty. I was also out there Thursday around 4 PM. The op was about to take it OOS completely as the bus was packed full of people and every time the bus moved, it sounded like the rear brakes were stuck and dragging. After everyone got off 5160 it took off without a problem. At least I got some good photos lol.
  2. Why did 145 (Orion VII CNG originally numbered 7685) stick around for much longer than the rest of those buses and get renumbered, despite the rest of them being retired in near consecutive order? Were the tanks on this unit renewed?
  3. 5659 is on the Bx1 right now. Not scrapped yet
  4. 4676 Jamaica to QV. Spotted on the Q88 last night.
  5. Who's going to the Parade of Trains coming up on Brighton? (June 17 - 18)

  6. As I'm looking at this thread, this happens: Edit: Any 's to Astoria?
  7. That stop is specifically at Sutter Avenue / Cross Bay Blvd going North. Took a picture of it the other day but it appears my phone did not save the image.
  8. It's been a while since I last posted photos here. Decided to break out the camera yesterday after long hiatus to get some photos / footage of this very interesting G.O. Here's some R46 Action along West End and 4th Avenue. [VIDEOS] 1.

A compilation video of footage taken yesterday will be uploaded on YouTube soon. All Photos and videos were taken with a Canon SX150 IS Camera. All Photos and Videos were taken on February 12, 2017.
  9. It seems Corona is getting back some R62A's, This will be interesting as CBTC is scheduled to start next month. (Correct me if there's any new info on this).

  10. It seems the two R62A sets left on the (7) still run at any time during the day. Yesterday I passed 33 Street around 12 AM and one was heading to Manhattan.

  11. How is it June already... .-.

  12. Perhaps that dormant right of way next to Woodhaven Blvd could be turned into a roadway for buses? A few extra roadways connecting Woodhaven Blvd or surrounding streets to the roadway would cost more but the travel time would be greatly reduced as there's no other traffic to obstruct the roadway. Local buses (Q11 and Q21) can remain on Woodhaven Blvd. Just a thought.
  13. Wow, nice catch. The R68A must have been bucking during the trip. Wouldn't be surprised if it had flat wheels afterwards.
