Queens Village Depot Loaner Roster Thread

Recommended Posts

So far from what I've seen (from what I can remember, there is much more, feel free to add) :

 

Jamaica:

4916, 4937 (there were much more)

 

Casey Stengel: 6870, 6894, 6895, 4191, 4183 (again, much more)

 

Fresh Pond: 8858, 8873 (or 8837 again I can't remember I've seen way too many of these today)

 

Flatbush: 5135

 

East New York: 6592

 

MHV: 6779 (I saw another hybrid from there)

 

 

Also: 9127 (I forget what depot it was from)

 

 

Couple of pics I took of them, I will go hunting for much more this week

No offense, but this didn't have to become a thread. Buses get loaned out all the time to other depots. They're just temporary, they'll all go back to their respective depots when they're not needed (99% of the time) or they just keep them for good (1% of the time). I got a few examples...

 

-When Manhattanville got a few RTSs on loan (I forgot where they came from). After they weren't needed, they went back to wherever they came from

 

-When Fresh Pond got 9130-9132 on loan from ENY. In this case, these buses were kept and older ones got sent out elsewhere

 

-When ENY got 9444 from Grand Ave as a loaner about a week or 2 ago. That one was sent back once it wasn't needed no more

 

@Q25: those buses from Fresh Pond are most likely gonna stay there in QV for a while (probably until retirement) since they are already planned to be pushed out by the NGs. 9127 was also from the Pond but its been at QV for quite some time now

I agree, but this is kinda helpful for the most part

 

Also, add MJQ to the mix. Saw 5017 tonight on the Q27

Regarding the 8837 or 8873 My guess is 8837 thats from FP 8873 is from FLA. I ll have to get out there and take a peak as well.

 

The lowest numbered RTS in service (not counting 4900's or 50xx's) is 8750, which is at Eastchester (depot, not scrap storage), so that bus must have been 8873.

 

If it was 8837, thats an RTS back from the dead! :eek:

 

I also saw & have pictures of 5168 from Jamaica & 6592 from ENY on the Q88.

Jamaica: #4916, #4932

Casey Stengel: #4191, #6870.

etc. (for others I've posted in diffrent threads.)

 

Note: As a I'm typing this #9556 is here & I'm riding it on the (Q83) Which means Grand Avenue is in this too.

It's real funny because I saw 9200 on the (Q42) this morning

 

Actually #9200 is a Jamaica Bus.

 

However if you want a surprise then here's one: #9533 was on the (Q42) this norning.

Damn, if that's true then QV must've needed another badly. It spent a short time @ Jamaica.

 

On a different note, I'm on the (Q46) (w/#9199) right now going toe-to-toe with #9265 from Jamaica.

More than likely, those buses will stay at Queens Village until they DIE! Remember, QV does have #9122, #9130, #9153 and #9171 and seeing #9127 might not exactly be a loaner. Same goes for #8837 and #8858.

Sometimes they forget to remove the logo but that bus is Jamaica's bus. It was moved with #9199 recently.

No, #9199 is still @ QV. I rode it on the (Q46) earlier this late afternoon (as I posted a few posts above) & it had QV stickers. Plus about #9200 last time I saw it the bus did have Jamaica stickers & another poster provided the photo.

 

More loaners: I saw an UP RTS in the 87XX series @ Jamaica Av along with a GA RTS (I don't know if it was still #9556 roaming around) which I couldn't see clearly.

How recently did you see it?

 

Also:

9696 from FLA

6885 from CS

9026 is running for QV WITH Jamaica stickers...I don't understand why they would do that...
