Copy. 

Its been pretty quiet this past weekend for bus moves. Kingsbridge got in more LFSA’s. 

It’s LFS. You keep referring the artic acronym when KB hasn’t gotten any more Nova Artics during the past few weeks.

What's happening in the way of XD40s at Quill?

Patience. The remaining Aesys XD-40s will be on the way. They are finishing the 7800 units for Brooklyn, then remainders at Quill.

4091, 4100, 4101 KB to Flatbush 

Kinda knew that was coming. Did any more 43xx make the trip today. So far 4335 pulled in late last night. I’m guessing it’s going to be a split on the 43xx’s between FB and MJQ. 

PS: Disregard on 4100. It’s in FB on the B2.

LFS more than likely.

 

By the way 4100 was a loan at WF from KB just for clarification. Now at FB.

Remember, the LFS's are one of the few buses that can fit in the tunnel under Central Park for the M66/72 so they are probably going to stay.

Basically. There's still 10 LFS are still at Quill for the two Crosstown routes. These and the 7500s are its rotation.

Any Xcelsior except for the XN40 and XN60 can fit through the Transverse so that's not an issue.

I will be so scared seeing CNG Xcelsiors through tunnels. They are most special buses and I'm not gonna listen to news about them exploding by either stratching or crushing tanks through short tunnels.

Now, let's get back to delivery and transfers

That would be highly unlikely and all buses have a placard above the drivers window which advises about the Height of the Bus, plus there would be no explosion, fire suppression systems are in place to prevent that, CNG Buses are prepared for these scenarios.
