Recommended Posts

As of Yesterday, the 2011 New Flyer DE40LFR's entered service out of Callowhill District. They have been spotted on routes 21, 38, 42, and 44. This Thread contains photos of videos of one of these vehicles on all but 1 route, the 21. Enjoy the Photos guys

and here is a ride on video!!

 

 

The engine in these are Cummins ISL and the transmission is an Allison EP40 "Hybrid Drive." They are VERY similar to the 2010 versions except the rear destination sign is further to the door side. This new rear sign is "flatter" than the normal signs, and it is lined up with the sides. The rear exhaust pipe is smaller, and on the door side there is a vent where the bus number would normally go. There are some other differences, but the ones mentioned is how you can tell a 2010 from a 2011 while in motion (Besides the fleet numbers being 8460-8559 for the 2011s and 8340-8459 for the 2010s).... Any questions ask away, otherwise enjoy!

Nice pics!

 

How about hell no to that SEPTA model....2nd of all (MTA) is not getting any D40's and 3rd and we don't have any D40's!

 

In the typical sense we are getting D40s...we're getting XD40s.

i am go ride d40 on bx31, i don kenw why dher is no d40 on bx31, lmfaooooooooo XD!

 

...

 

Anyways, very nice coverage of SEPTA D.J.! Keep the photos comming!

 

Erm, not exactly. Over the next few months (MTA) will get a crapton of new C40LFs that will go to CNG depots such as West Farms. The first XD40s are not going to the Bronx; they're a test fleet that will run out of Castleton, Ulmer Park, and Queens Village. Subsequent orders will most likely not go to West Farms because West Farms is a CNG depot and most likely will receive CNG buses. Incidentally, I love the photos and the video.

Nice shots, I just think the rear looks a bit awkward.
The rear is the best part for me (thanks btw) thats why I nickname em "flat screens"

Bahaha thanks

KeystoneRegional was pointing out that the original poster didn't say a model that MTA currently owns (D60/C40LF) but said that SEPTA should buy them from them... so basically his post was saying how he was gonna go and look for these magical D40s that MTA has :P
