The Past & The Present (56K Warning)

Recommended Posts

It's interesting to see how the CNG's held up and changed in the last 12 years. Here are some photos that I found on the net that I saved on my computer just so admire these nice machines. Note, these are not taken by me, so credit is due to the original photographers.

 

First:

7017 Before

7017 Now

7045 Before

7045 Now

70452.jpg

7050 Before

7050 Now

Finally

7076 Before

70762.jpg

7076 Now

If you guys got any Before or Now shots, let me see them and I'll see if I have a before and after shot in my Library of pics and I'll place them up. They don't have to be just MCI's. They can be any type of bus.

Post post post it....i need to foam lol!

 

You want a cigarette? Relax. LOL

 

Once again, none of these are mine. Just some that I found on the net that I thought were great and I added it them to my Nova Pictures. Most of these pictures were taken by one person, but I don't want to mention his name since people do talk so, you'll all understand.

 

These are all NOVA A's that were around before retired. The only difference is the destination signs and the garage emblem. You'll see.

"Awesome pics!

 

- Those MCI's look way better now.

 

- Those Nova A's look better and much cleaner with green destination signs. I think the orange sign doesn't go well with those big multicolored stripes on the side of the bus. Cause the Nova B's with the new livery look way better with their orange signs.

 

Can you do metro B's, and a "then and now" shot of the back of a Nova A?"

I need a favor though. If anyone has or can get a picture of

 

7121, MCI 45 at Meadowlands, I would be eternally grateful. That is my favorite MCI back at NJT and I miss that old girl. We had fun together.

though with the 107 it was a little different since that was a flixible route mainly then they would use nova's during the afternoon rush hour for some reason and that was like 3-4 years ago

It was never on the 161. I was just playing around with the sign one night. I've done the 161 as a favor for Wayne once cuz they were short on B/O one time. That's how I remembered the line.
