Goodbye S50's


Recommended Posts

OC Transpo has made a deal with New flyer industries to switch all of our current 226 New flyer D60LF's 2001-2004 for some brand new 2010 D60LFR's

 

so basically these are the buses that will be leaving OC transpo starting in august

Very nice to see the new busses, but do you know where the old Busses are going to, :tup: :(?

 

we are assuming there are going back to New flyer industries for either scrap or something else we are only getting the new buses becuase the S50 engine cannot perform to its standerds

I think its LFs, Chicago rejected about that many DE60LFs, I think those are coming to OC Transpo.

 

New Flyer didnt start building those buses yet for Chicago but did this OC Transpo deal to keep workers working as they booked in space for the Chicago order. Also there is way too more for this story involving OC transpo and New Flyer in general then to get into here

New Flyer is buying back Ottawa's D60LF's in this deal as they have been nothing but problems for Ottawa. This deal is more to keep Ottawa a New Flyer customer as Ottawa was looking at Double Deckers from Dennis and Orion VII NG HEV's

New Flyer stated they plan on reselling these buses for the North Amerian markets and International markets

send em to MTA Bus Co. ftw!

 

MTA needs artics, and they have the same engine as the New Flyer artics already here. Why not? Just got to get those engine troubles worked out..........

it would be a good idea but do the specs of the bus matter to the MTA?

I think one of the biggest mistakes New Flyer ever made was the the decision to power the D60's with the S50. They should have come with the S60! They are seriously underpowered when they get old.

The engines currently in those buses dont work well in the summer time with the A/C as they are underpowered

100% true if you are riding them in the summer on the 60XX,61XX and somewhat the 63XX once the A/C is on and the bus stops at a station it can take up to a whole minute to get any where near 60 KM/H

wow they are bared from orders lol..

 

but no the buses are being returned to NFI and will be replaced by new engines most likely or new will have to scrap 256? buses and gain minimal profit from them.

there better off Repowering them with new engines i would prefer to have a Ex M11E or now ISM engine on a artic. and the only reason NFI is barred because of the end D60HF order the last buses that was suposed to be made got cancelled due to the company discontinuing the HF model and only had the LF left.
