Jfk buses on the q35 is nothing new. Seems every weekend before the storm hit, there was at least one jfk bus on the q35. As for the pulling of the d60, could they be using that for the G shuttle? With all the o5cngs being retired, could those be brought back just for the shuttle?

It's a loaner. I saw 9559 (I believe it was) on the Q84

 

 

JAM is borrowing 9527, 9549, 9559, 9566, and 9661 from QV.

Not really a "borrowing" or "loaning" situation as its in the system on the JA roster. With that said, it's a transfer(for now).

Those are in the system in the LG roster as well....not every transfer is permanent. Those not listed in the rosters are loaners.

MCI 2185?

 

Yes...MCI 2185. It was one of the buses in the Orchard Beach by Rail and Bus today...the next newest bus was third-generation New Look 5227.

MCI 2185?

Yup, was fueled at 1am Thursday morning. Had it's last hand wash the other day, they cant bring it through the wash because the brushes will mess up the custom hand paint job. But... I don't know why they would change the sticker it was never from 34th street. They should've left the Ulmer Park sticker.. One of the supervisors at the event said it was retired.. The bus is still listed as assigned to Ulmer Park though.

What? already? Isn't it a little 'young' to be retired?

 

2185 is 12 years old---probably at the exact age to be eligible for retirement. This bus had barely gotten any mileage on it after it received its custom paint job.

What happened to RTS-06 5088? Someone spotted it as retired.

It was in a accident on the B6 by shore pkwy, people said a truck hit it and smashed the front, and they said if it was an Xcelsior the driver would of been seriously hurt so looks like 5088 has some low frame damage

Not retired as of yet its under investigation. It's at the depot now, they can actually fix it.

It wasn't in an accident on the B6, it was on the 36 I heard. The drivers side of the bus is smashed but they can fix it if they really wanted to.

 

 

9274 LG - JG.

 

 

4710 taking a nice trip through Maple Grove, MN (Minnesota)

You know guys, these maintenance shifts are barely moves. Buses get moved around for work all the time...it's if they hit service that it gets interesting. I know they're in the database, but still.

 

Also, which PBL-O5 suburban was it that became an NYPD bus? Just saw it, interior is still exactly as it was with NYBS-colored seats and luggage racks.
