5105 is the first LED bus, which is still in service at UP.

 

Interesting that 8053 is at UP, that's only several buses away from QV batch (8060 and up)

Nope Its 5105-5112 , 9105 is a Detriot Diesel 50 DDEC , With A Allison Vr-731 Atec Transmission , 9105 isnt a zf . That one should go back in service i hope .

9105 could be for MTA Bus as well. Just because their fareboxes were removed dosent always mean its scrap.

 

 

Its not going to mta bus . Its probably scrap . Its old and now that the new ones came in they dont have to fix any of the old ones so they are going to let it go , Ps * that bus has broken down many times , i was on the 6 the other week and it broke down on someone . It has a very damn good starter but its going to go . Ehh they might be able to fix it but i doubt it . 9101 is gone & 8888 is still out of service due to transmission slipping . 9105 just has issues .

9397 of ulmer park..that bus will be put in to get the transmission fixed ..my driver had it today and it didn't shift properly and on turns it felt like the bus was holding back then we made a turn onto bay ridge av on the 64 and the bus completely stopped with the "check transmission" gauge on in the middle of the street and the engine kept revving..so something was rly wrong with the transmission

Just saw two Castleton LFS buses running east on Atlantic Ave near Court Dtreet Out of service, presumably from the highway. Any idea why?

NovaBus RTS-06 #8816 is now property of QV.

 

NovaBus RTS-06 #9208 is also @ QV

 

8894 now @ JA

 

WOW!:eek: According to these posts JAM & QV must have traded buses with each other. I wonder why though?

Ok Soo Umm..... Theres a lfs at queens village running around now from castleton . Castleton has all of their buses except 8015 , thats the only one missing . 8000 came this past weekend . Ulmer park should get the rest of their order soon . There was supposed to be a move of ngs from castleton to freshpond today but the move was canceled because there wasnt any drivers to take the buses over there . Now the lfs are written on and scratched up inside , they have problems going up the hills only doing 5 mph , 8009 is in the shop as of this afternoon . I saw it on the S93 this afternoon but it went to castleton after the drop off .

NovaBus RTS-06 #9200 from QV. That bus has the same sound of the 99 Novas used to make. As long as it's in Queens I'm still satisifed.:cool:

From what I remember yesterday I'm pretty sure I saw 8894 on a QV route

9208 on a QV route

A low numbered 9000 with Jamaica stickers, I dont remember what # it was maybe 9002 or I might be way off but it was odd
