Good shots! Did you get a new camera?

 

Thanks, & yes I did.

2 of them infact, a:

 

+ Kodak EasyShare M532

+ Flip Video Ultra HD

 

Most of the vids and all the pics here are taken with the Kodak, 2 or 3 of the vids will with the flip (my camera was low on battery so I decided to use the flip).

Nice catch, guy.

 

I didn't know #801 ended up at MTA Bus. It's funny because this bus actually was the first C40LF to be delivered back in 1998 to Jackie Gleason.. of course when they were brand new.

Yeah if you didn't know the new C40LF model is supposed to push out the older C40's from Gleason into other depots such as College Point!

How long has this C40LF been in College Point? And how many people caught it out of College Point routes before this? :P

Thanks, and yeah it seems whenever the (MTA) orders buses, the 2nd one in the order gets delivered first.

 

It happened with the LFS, 8000 didn't get delivered until much later.

Yes, its been on different routes out of CP before but never in service on the Q38 before.

I've noticed the engine vent in the back of the new C40LFs, which means no more rear ads, maybe?

Lol, design WIN :P.

Can't know for sure, it could've made some runs on the Q38 and interlined with another route.
