What’s the deal with 7851-7905? Did they scrap that idea? If not, are those buses for NYCT or MTA BUS Company? Not sure what’s the hold up here, but I’ll wait until more information....

My bet its going to MTA but their hybrids are up for retirement also so maybe it is scrap but the have a lot of OGs

It’s been at least three days since #7202 has been at Fresh Pond. It was on the B13 earlier this morning and it’s currently on the B26.

I think this might be a long term loan (just like how 4409 and 7308 were loaned to East New York from Flatbush last summer).

Are the miles reset on the pilot Buses when they go back to the NFI plant, or does it stay with the miles its accumulated on its tips back and forth from NFI?

Apparently 6174 is reported at Flatbush Ave. (FB). However, you may know better than me on this one sir. Double check on that.

GPS data and system listing still has it at the vendor, but it has not been updated since the 4th so it's possible that it's at Flatbush.

 

Some photographic evidence would really help.

No problem. If I see anywhere in training or on the 44SBS early AM I’ll try to snap a photo. Appreciate the clarification.

Dammit, I just saw this.

That's actually a good question. I never really looked into that to be honest with you.

6173 and 6174 officially at Flatbush.

5337, 5340, 5342-5343, 5346, 5349, 5352 are all left.

3) questions: 

1) Is there a possibility that FB will retain 6169-6182? Once deliveries are done? (Honestly, I thought some were heading MQ bound at first)

2) Will they possibly receive more LFSA’s in the near future? I know those first 11 that came in are staying for now. 

3) Will FB move some 2017 XD60’s to MCH? So far 6113, and 6117 made the trip.
