If you were able to purchase past/present bus models

Recommended Posts

Just a little something for fun. If you were able to purchase past and present bus models, what would it be?

 

Past - TMC RTS-06 CNGs and the MCI Model TC-40102A Classic and the Suburban Version

Present - Orion V CNGs in both MTA NYCT and MTA Bus, Orion VII CNGs, and the NovaBus RTS.

Probably one of every model from the pbl's and some models from NYCT. But if I had to limit it to a few buses I would try to buy a Fishbowl, a classic, and either and Orion V or RTS.

On lighter routes, wouldn't mind seeing Flexibles (the ones sold to NJT) on occasion.

 

BRTs on all heavy routes in the outer boroughs Citaro Buses (Bronx, Long Island) / NABI buses (Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island).

 

Orion VII CNG (Queens, Staten Island, Long Island)

Orion V CNG (Bronx / Brooklyn)

 

Manhattan: Double Decker Buses (All buses on 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th Avenue & Broadway)

 

BRT: 1st Avenue, 3rd Avenue, Park Avenue (ideal, but would never happen), 11th Avenue. Citaro

The Grummans? If you're talking about those then you won't bee those because they're gone already. NJT has Flxible Metro-Bs now which are slated to be gone by summer end.

They are getting NABIs to replace the great masterpiece flexibles. These NABIs probaly suck anyway not to mention they're ugly. Shame just a shame....

No, LIB is done with the Orion V. It's Orion VII time, but if I was in charge I would order a few.

Pretty much nothing from the past for me.

 

I would purchase 7748 VII CNG, 7665 VII CNG and 7750 VII CNG (7750 does NOT have a 40MPH speed limiter, got a video (well sound clip) of it bypassing it's speed limiter, does that whenever it's being floored.

Also I would definately get 9865 V CNG and 175 V CNG from LIB.

Present: The 1996 Orion V before they go along with the best working Novas that are about to retire.
