7181, The Last ex-Triboro RTS Has Retired

Its official, 7181 is no longer on the roster list. It has be sent to Eastchester for scrap, thus marking the retirement of the Triboro RTS fleet. So ends an era. At least we still have the ex-Triboro Orion V CNG's. Feel free to post pictures of the 7100's RTS. Also, the 9700's RTS's are appearing less frequently than before.

Expect all of the PBL TMC's to be gone by next year.

Don't they already have 5904 preserved as a Queens Surface bus? Seeing as that came from the same order/numbering of buses as 5926I don't see what the big deal is then if 5926 is scrapped. Unless you want a former Green lines bus saved...

Thing is, that it survived the 'terrible' Green Lines 'treatment' and still runs great. If anything they could at least mothball it and keep it as part of a 'reserve fleet'. Why scrap a perfectly good running bus? There are other TMC buses out there that should be scrapped before 5926 imo. If the ex-BL buses weren't going to MTA Bus, 5926 would still be running without need to be retired.
