8XXX series RTS

Recommended Posts

Question: This bus used to be 8058. Does anyone know why a few of the 8000 series buses don't have high mount exhaust pipes?

They had not had a new engine (DD50), put into them. The only ones I knew of that were not repowered were the Zerega Training Buses. IIRC, they have 2 like that.

No more unrepowered RTS buses are still at NYCT. All the MTA Bus unrepowered RTS buses are gone however there are still a few Classics running.

in that first photo, the signs on the bus looks weird

 

Yeah, thats because it's a fake paper sign used for the Incredible Hulk movie. Notice how it reads "M20 Lincoln CTR to Battery Park" and the rear reads "M103" in orange

Does that explain why an 84XX series RTS looks like an 80XX series RTS?
