So it’s safe to say. 6138 FB to MCH. 

6138 was never at MCH. The bus you have in mind is 6128.

6138 wasn’t tracking. However, it was in Manhattan earlier this week. Plus MCH hasn’t received delivery as they are still training with 6128. Also, it was confirmed that 6138 did leave for Manhattan. It’s now back in Brooklyn.

Listen, no problem big homie.. It's been a bit crazy on NYCT (MTA) as of late... FB and MJQ been swapping as of late. However, MCH did need a extra bus to train and they took 6138 for a ride.. I saw it back in Brooklyn yesterday afternoon. Also do remember FB allotment has been reduced once again. This time to 29 buses per moderators. However, bus delivery has been slow. So we don't know if FB and MJQ will share a decent amount of 615x, and 616x buses and or FB taking MJQ recent set of buses. Stay tuned!

With that transfer.. You was right they did borrow and the depot stickers did not switch. However, it was there for training.. MCH still has 6128.

NYCT (MTA) needs to move on the MCH delivery tho.. Those 12xx buses are seriously taking a beating and need to be on local like ASAP. Hopefully, KB, GH, TU and I would like to throw a wild card.. Grand Avenue to take on these buses.. Although, Brooklyn Division is designated New Flyer territory. 

However, 4754 is at Grand Avenue, I don't know if operators and mechanics have gotten a chance to train and operate on the B38 or Q58 for revenue service.

That's 6128.......I was out there and caught it AT Grand Street. I fanned the line after work, saw no sign of 6138.

6138 was working B44 run 539 that same night. Hale never received that bus.

6128 was working the M15 SBS that same night at the same location down below(still image from video).

The training buses they had were 6095 and 6096 and those were out training in Harlem 3-4 days a week.

They never received 6138, that bus was working the B44 since delivery and has not left Flatbush since. On the day you reported that 6138 moved to MCH, that bus was working B44 run 513 and pulled in at 22:07 to Flatbush.....I'm more than confident that you guys got 28 and 38 mixed up....
