Wait, when did that bus go gold?
Isn't there one blue one and one gold one?
Nice shot, I think that is one of the old GMC's.
There's a gold one and a blue one.
My word. And it has a street exhaust. And a 6V-92TA. I really want a ride on one of NYCT's old RTSs. Those buses defined New York. And yes, to me it made a difference whether the RTSs had pork chop windows, street exhausts, the (NYCT) Surface logo, that grumbling sound of the old 92, the old exterior number stickers (sometimes accompanied by "PA"), the rear bumper saturated in soot from the exhaust. Any RTS with a roof exhaust, a 4-stroke engine, and no pork chop windows is not cool.
Yep, I think the blue one is at Casey Stengel, I see it alot around flushing.
it will be nice if they actually let you ride inside the bus,it wouldn't hurt if they allow you to do so.
Ah ok, I thought it was only one. Thanks.
I don't think they will. I spoke to an ex-Green Lines bus operator who
had 30 years with GBL and is now a dispatcher on the Q60, and he said that the people who ride the roadeo buses back to the depot are MTA brass and the like who only come into contact with the blue collar workers (bus ops, dispatchers, mechanics etc) when they yell at them for doing something they think is wrong.
Who the hell cares, I can still get my LL Classic some years from now, so screw MTA and their top brass goons and screw them for not taking out old buses on special trips for busfans to ride..
I've seen an RTS with a street exhaust in back of Stengel depot, I think it was in regular blue on white colors though. Maybe a roadeo bus.
Nice catch! Haven't seen that around here in a while!
