Recommended Posts

When I came home from pennsylvannia, i was on fordham road and sedgwick avenue and then i saw a bx12 that was coming into service and the sign said "Bx12 +select bus service+" "Bx12 pelham bay station"

 

and it was a regular bus that went to sedgwick avenue :tup::tup:

so was the physical bus, an artic w/o the paint job, or was it an artic w/ the paint job that all the sbs buses have?

 

I'm still trying to figure out what you're describing as being cool.....

That is cool, it must've been from West Farms.

 

Why would it have been from WF? KB is more likely but even still if I'm interpreting this properly: A Bx12 local went OOS at Sedgwick Ave (which is common) and came back in service with the SBS designation to Pelham Bay. Now what possibly happened is that the dispatcher at University told the B/o on the local to fill in for a missing SBS run. Or the B/o put in the wrong designation.

Impossible. The C40LF only comes from Gleason. If its a New Flyer, the only ones they have up in the Bronx is the D60HF, or the "articulated", "double bus", or most commonly referred to the "artic".

This doesnt sound too far-fetched to me. The Bx12 during the summer weekends is a split depot route (KB and GH) with as few as 2 min headways to provide Orchard service. Some of the locals even run through to Inwood during the day. However The SBS 12 still runs on its normal schedule because it doesnt really go to Orchard,and its a seperate route from the local 12.

 

Last I checked the Bx12 and SBS 12 dont interline (SBS 12 becomes Local 12 and vice versa) but on them summer weekends, that Bx12 line looks like a bus version of the (4)(5)(6) so anything can happen

He/She said it was a C40LF so I assumed West Farms because they have CNG buses.

He/She said it was a New Flyer but it wasn't an artic so I asked was it a C40LF and they said yes.

It had to be an Artic, as the C40LF have never run in the Bronx and it wouldn't show up on a GH route as theres no fueling station. There are no WF routes (meaning CNG buses) that terminate in a place where a dispatcher could throw a bus on the Bx12 to cover a run.

 

They don't interline generally but if a bus dropped out of SBS service the dispatcher could have thrown a local into SBS service (esp if the B/o was on his way back to GH)
