Recommended Posts

I was waking from Penn station when I saw Orion V Q32 from Casey Stengel Depot with leather seats, what type of model is that ?and also is it only for that line?

Orion V Suburban, runs mainly on the Q76 and randomly on other CS routes.

1995 Orion 05.501 (V) Diesel Suburban. Units 611-630. They're exactly the same as the other Orion Vs except with soft padded carpet (not leather) seats. They're used mainly on the X32 and Q32 but show up on other local routes out of Stengel frequently. 611-630 are all Stengel buses which were originally Castleton buses, used on express routes down there before the MCI D-series came.

For whatever reason, One of the X51 runs is interlined with a local run so if the B/O doesn't make it back to CS whatever bus he had goes into service on the X51. And it's usually an O7.

 

Now here's a question: What's going to happen to 611-630 if they go ahead and scrap the X32 in September? That's the only route that would need Suburban O5's at CS.

They should put those on the X90 when they retire the 1993 Orion V's. I rode the X90 last week and the seats in those buses are in bad shape.

I saw 996 last week on 57th and 2nd around 5:45 PM and I saw it again yesterday a 57th and 5th a around 6:00 PM. I think it gets to 57th between 5:45 and 6:00.

Apparently, the X90 is getting MCI's because 1959-60 are at MJQ. So there won't be any routes left that absoulutely need the Suburban O5's.

Those buses, especially 630 are constantly in use on the Q31

PM. I think it's the 7:10 run but I'm not 100% sure.

 

And 611?! They really are just throwing whatever they can on the 44. I imagine it was packed

Go to a College Point or Spring Creek express route. They're all over the place there.

You can find them on the X90 and some runs on the M30 and M98.
