5709 KB to GH, 5679 scrap, 5680, 5685, and 5687 KB to WF,  5689 GH to KB, 5177 FB to EN.

5585 maybe is scrap?

Also, all 2017 LFS-A but 5530 and 5439-5442 seem to be in

forgot the LFS-As, RTS

Having rode two of their Ulmer Park's best 5103 and 5105 over the last two weeks,, I think that there will be more  XD40's heading there even if it is on a temporary basis.

Are we saying that those 3 XD40 buses from FB will be at UP temporarily until they get the 40 new XD40 new scheme buses later in the year?

Looks like Ulmer Park is joining the “take an XD40 from Flatbush” party. Who’s next?

Was my last post about the XD40 bus transfer funny? If so, I'm glad you found it humorous.

Wouldn't be surprised.

Can we not ask all these questions in this thread? This is not what this is for. Please take the extended conversations to the Fleet & Depots thread. Thank you.

5212 doesn't run in revenue service anymore... it got demoted to a swing bus and it doesn't have a farebox, has a paper saying "swing bus" in the windshield.

That's kind of a promotion lol. That means it won't be going anywhere for the next 4 years unless it gets scrapped.

I saw one the new LFSA's in question upstate headed to Nova on Wednesday evening. It's either 5530 or one of the pilots. My bet is that it was a pilot. It didn't have any numbers or decals of any kind.

There’s also a LFSA somewhere in Deer Park. That also has no number. I know the option buses aren’t due until mid to late summer.  (Correct me on this).

5177 is a swing bus just like 5212.

Wow. 2 East New York buses graduating for swing buses. I guess 5177 will be on the 17 and 5212 will be on the 42/82 or vice versa on any given day. 5177 farebox is gone? 

Whats the status on 5210? Revenue service or swing bus?

I didn't see a farebox on 5177, it's parked at Rockaway Parkway just like 5212 was yesterday. The ENY swing buses are randomly shuffled between Rockaway Parkway, Crown Heights Utica and Woodhull Hospital (B15).

It may sound about right for ENY with their swing buses. Previously, there were 3 around the 9500 units.

The other one was 9580. I usually see that on the swings with the B17.
