End of an era/Hit from the Farm

After 15 years of hard service in these new york city streets, you will be missed...

Fanning those 1000s, top of my priority list....1086 was one of my favs too....

 

 

 

 

But 1100 and 1038 stand out as my two top favs...

 

 

 

 

In my opinion, these buses had the best sounding fans ever, especially better than the EGR units....

Good luck at NIMCO, 1086.

Not the only D60 killed off this year; I found 1045, 1070, 1087 and 5401 all at Eastchester:

Any word on what will happen to 1086 and 1075?

1086 is done, the fare box has been taken out. We're just swapping some parts off of it onto other buses before it takes the trip to eastchester. 1075 has another couple months. The only reason 1086 is gettin g the axe early is because it needs head gasket. It's not worth sending the bus to zerega to only use it for a couple more months, especially when they usually take a month with stuff like that because its so backed up over there supposedly.

Those New Flyers sure took a beating. I was never attracted to the New Flyer fleet, but heaven knows i'll miss them now since they're heading out the door.

Dam, 1070 is there too? That one sure was a runner....

 

But wait, why is 5401 there?

Sounds reasonable to me. :tup:

Those 1000 were great buses, I will be fanning them a lot before they go to!:P

1101 is a great bus that needs respect to.

 

1101 you say?

 

 

 

 

And during its days at Quill on the M79 (during the 1000s transfer to 126)

 

 

 

I rode that bus before I moved to Queens in the early AM, that bus can haul ass!

 

Nonetheless, I'll be in the city for the most part riding these, then head over to West Farms turf for these (if there are any left...) 1066 over at the farms...great bus....

Great stuff! Do know when these buses will be replaced?

damn are 1000-1109 all retiring this year and are there any buses to repace them?

 

Also, are some going to MTA BUS?

 

1000-1109 will be replaced, but they'll probably fully retire around early to mid-2012 and will be replaced with LFS-As. And I don't think some will go to MTA Bus.

The last order of D60HFs, the 2002-3s some will be heading to MTAB

It's only 1086 going, not 1075, right?

 

 

 

1000-1109 and 5250-5509, the latter batch which have really been beat to premature death, especially at 100th Street.

 

 

 

WF still runs plenty of the 1000s luckily, I see them on the Bx15 all the time...

 

1075 is safe for now, it still has the fare box and all its parts. 1086 is in need of engine repair, hence its early retirement. I wouldn't be surprised if we got a spare artic from eastchester just to pass the time.
