"Passing on a image of MTA's first EPA2010 Orion VII, completed and sitting out back at the Mississauga, Ontario facility. Framed windows on this batch. Excuse the quality as it was taken with a BlackBerry from a distance away."

 

But although, LIB gave use the preview of what bus may look. But this is the Clean Diesel Version lets not forget.

 

Anyways; if you can look at the photo carefully, there 3 buses lined up: 2 upcoming to NYCTA and the PT Demo in the back. The roof design is different from the NG HEVs we have here (obviously). Enjoy:);)

I approve! I can't wait to see these on the road and this glimpse gets me even more excited because it's not a hybrid!

Thanks for reposting it here for me. There is only one New York unit there. The second white one is PT7 which is the Allison hybrid prototype and the green one is PT2 which is the BAE test bus.

I noticed too. By any chance, will the PT demos in the picture become part of NYC Transit?

Yes, about a 10 minute drive away...

 

Can you get us a good photo of the bus, close up.... if you can?? No pressure. Because I just want to see what Ulmer Park have to handle by after November. :P:) And also the A/C unit is from Thermo King, is it.

he would't be able to see the A/C unit unless he opens the rear hatch and the engine cover. this is actually kinda what i was talking about on a separate post about the XD40. there is no need for that A/C hump on the roof of a 40ft bus unless it has a rear window. the O7's get ice cold with no roof top A/C unit. although on an artic its a completely different story...

There is no A/C equipment in the rear of the Orion VII (or XD40 for that matter, regardless of whether it has a rear window or not). All the A/C is on the roof now because the space in the rear was required for the EPA2010 compliant (SCR) exhaust after treatment system.

The Suffolk Transit Orion VII diesels have a completely flat roof, they are supposed to be 2010 models, why no roof hump?? thanks in advance for the answer.

I believe it's because those units either use Cummins ISL9s or ISL07s which would not require roof mounted A/C units.

Even though they are 2010 units, those buses are E07 NG's. Not E10 3G's which the MTA is about to take delivery of.

Thanks to you and Nabinut for the explanations, I will take a look at APTA next month.

Is there any idea on which depots will be getting the 3Gs first?

 

These buses are all part of the test bus fleet so it'll be the 1/3 split between CA, UP and QV. (In that order)

Fleet numbers follows:

7000-7029 = Castleton

7030-7059 = Ulmer Park

7060-7089 = Queens Village

Don't forget that the current assignments are subject to change. The buses will continue to be split between those depots, but the order of delivery may change.
