Wow, I didn't know they had those Gilligs that early. I had never seen or even heard of a Gillig until I went to California in '89. It seemed like a strictly West Coast things back then. A decade later, I heard about them in Suffolk in discussions like these, and assumed they were new.

I don't remember seeing a 1982 Gillig Phantom, partly because My memory of ridding buses (although I've been riding buses since I was born) started right around the time I believe they were retired, and because I believe 9Based on the info I have) that the company that operated the routes that I rode when I was younger didn't have any.


I have ridden a 1987 Gillig around the time a chunk of them were retired, it was the first time I had ever remembered seeing a roll sign on a bus before. My mom called the bus a Summer Bus, based on the fact that one company had a route that only ran during the summer and I believe that company ran their 1987 Gilligs on that route. (However I have yet to prove that said company had 1987 Gilligs in the first place)


When I rode the 1987 Gillig, I didn't know the year it was made or the make (I had only known that it had looked, except for the Roll Sign, like the buses I had always ridden on at the time. (Which were 1991 and 1996 Gillig Phantoms)


It wasn't until my family got our first computer that I had discovered that Suffolk had 1981 New Flyers and 1982 Gillig Phantoms, as well as the years of the other Gillig Phantoms.


Based on some peoples help and some photographs that were taken of buses back then, I have placed almost all of Suffolk Transit's buses with the companies that operated them, except for a few.


1982 Gillig Phantom 5,7-13 and 209

1987 Gillig Phantom 711, and 740-742

1991 Gillig Phantom 920


Also I have no Info on 1981 New Flyer D901A 35102C 624 and recently discovered 623. They were not on the order list that I found, so I have no idea if they were ordered later or if they were transferred from another ST operator and renumbered when they got to the new operator. (that has happen once in ST history, 1987 Gillig Phantom #8703 was originally numbered #710
