Suffolk Transit bus caught fire.

Recommended Posts

On Monday a Orion VII (unkown # and unkonw length) operated by EBT Inc caught fire at Ocean Ave & Bohemia Court in Bohemia, NY after suffering some type of mechanical problem. No passengers were on board at the time, as it was head back to EBT's yard in Coupaigue. The driver of the bus was not hurt.

The bus that caught fire was #1054. The bus looks like it was gutted.

So was 1054 scrapped or no?

 

 

It would appear that it's been retired. A friend says that he hasn't seen 1054 since the fire.

Is there any news stories on this. I'm surprised I can't find any...

 

There has been no word on what had happen since it happened two years ago. At the time they said it was caused by a mechanical problem, but nothing more spcific then that. Or at least nothing that I'm aware of.
