I hope you don't mean they're getting rid of the ZF transmissions and putting in the Allison V731 transmission.

 

Unfortunately, from some of the sources I've been hearing from, it does sound like the real deal. There has been way too many breakdowns with those ZF transmissions. Ulmer Park didnt want those 5000s to begin with!

 

As for those orange signs, they have been going after buses with the TwinVision LEDs. I wonder if MJQ's TwinVision LED buses would get the same treatment

Spelling mistake.

I wonder if Ulmer only got those buses from Flatbush to 'lower the overall fleet age' at Ulmer? :sigh: I wished those buses were still at Flatbush. Hell I think Flatbush should've just sent some 9600's to Ulmer instead or just give Ulmer the NG's and leave Flatbush as RTS only.

Ok I said 5117 has orange signs and I double checked I made a mistake confusing the zero for a 1...its was actually 5107!

yeah, i think what was said was that the buses with the ZF transmissions are going to be a mainstay at UP. Which unless im wrong are the 5000's going there. are they removing the ZF's with allison's, or the other way around? im confused. hope im right and not to late! LOL

They're replacing the ZF's with the Allison V-731s from scrapped RTSs. Better ride them while you can!

 

5092 is a beast ZF Nova to get you started. That baby roared on the F train shuttle that night I got the C40LF recording.
