  1. What about Orion V CNGs 8568-8582? / Yesterday I spotted 217 freshly repainted working the Q38 with a sign inside the bus towards the back reading "217 8-year engine change" Along with NYCT stickers even though it's at MTA Bus. I was once told all the C40s with NYCT stickers were capped at a lower speed despite some of those operating out of Bus co.
  2. Just spotted 6234 turning off the BQE onto Broadway / 69 Street with LGA stickers. Not in SBS wrap.
  3. So that's what I saw yesterday while passing on the M60. I couldn't snap a pic in time.
  4. Those C40s may not last as long as we thought. Apparently New Flyer stopped making parts for that model. The only remaining buses in NYC that have Series 50 engines are a few D40s running at LGA Airport for their shuttle bus routes under Port Authority. 714, 715 and 716 specifically. They sound quite similar to our older and now retired C40s, same axles and engines.
  5. Itching to know what will happen with the remaining Orion CNGs as the Xcelsiors units with their numbers are expected to arrive in the next week or so. Maybe for the time being they'll be skipped or renumbered like 145.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 5659 is on the Bx1 right now. Not scrapped yet
  9. 4676 Jamaica to QV. Spotted on the Q88 last night.
  10. Who's going to the Parade of Trains coming up on Brighton? (June 17 - 18)

  11. As I'm looking at this thread, this happens: Edit: Any 's to Astoria?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
