  1. Spotted a SBS artic from CS parked on Northern today (along the Q12). Not sure if it was a deadhead and the driver stopped or if they were testing things.
  2. Definitely seems like a codebreak.
  3. Those XD60s are starting to get less bland with the noises. I noticed some operators like to mess around with the gears and some of them have the bus stop shifting at 3rd or 4th gear. Makes for some nice sound effects. Most 44 operators tend to haul ass as well, I was on 6000 and the dude was doing 40 down a stretch of Main Street, man was absolutely flying on that bus.
  4. 6001 does that on the Q44. It flashes super quick and only shows +SELECT BUS with a split second frame showing its destination, so it's very hard to notice. They're probably messing with the program on that sign and screwed up again.
  5. Are they working on new sign programs? I've noticed on the Xcelsiors at CS that multiple buses have signs with different looking fonts and colors on them (Spectrum buses).
  6. Is there an update on where 7484 is headed to as well as the rest of that order?
  7. First 647 (1306?), now 6000. Guess there's only one Orion V in the museum fleet now. Sucks because the Orion Vs were such a large fleet at one point.
  8. Those Luminator signs are absolute garbage. I don't know what they did to those signs on the XD40 batch that CS has, but multiple buses have been getting these large green boxes stuck on their destination signs. It's one thing when it happens to one bus, it's completely different when 5+ buses are experiencing the same issues with their signs.
  9. Nice shots. Was it ever considered that instead of making it 7483 that they could've made it 7430's replacement?
  10. Does the LFS on the M42 have any reason to do with the LFS that was on the Q28 today (actually, it's still on it)? Or is the LFS just a loan to CS (doesn't make sense why JA would loan CS the LFS over the NG)?
  11. I thought I was the only one who thought that. The Bombardier NTTs seem to feel/look different from the other ones (more bulky). It's minor differences (window frames, red light for doors) but it really does make the train feel a lot different than other NTTs.
  12. What's the status on the XD40 order? Will we be seeing those buses in the next year or so?
  13. What is up with the Main Street bus lane? They painted over the bus lane (which was red) with a dark red/black. The curbside bus lane on one of the streets is also always filled with cars. It says 4pm-7pm no standing yet at 5pm today there was 7 cars lined up in the bus lane. Seems like they are laying off on bus lane reinforcements and it's stupid.
  14. Ever since Halloween I've spotted dozens of buses that were egged. Maybe it doesn't happen as often, but it still happens. There were XD60s on the 44 with eggs all over the window and I've seen other buses with egg on them as well.
