Ex-Queens XD40s in Brooklyn September 12

Recommended Posts

At least eight XD40s that used to belong in Queens Village are here in Ulmer Park and in service too.

Brooklyn is lucky when it comes to get new buses. I hope people don't destroy the buses right away.

I see the B1 is everyone's favorite line fan in Brooklyn.

They should be in good condition, I haven't seen them abused (besides the litter). The B1 is popular yes, but I think the B6 tends to be more focused, especially with the longer distance it travels than the B1.

I ride the B6 the most out of the UP routes and the buses are still in good shape (no major vandalism). So don't worry about the Novas, they'll be fine. How are the QV xd40s?

 

Brooklyn will soon be almost NF turf :) B6 definitely needs Xd40s or 3g as the novas are not good enough to handle the masses of school kids. I would say it's as bad as when the 9300s with the suburban seats were used. Just not enough room.

Cool pics!

 

 

Thank you very much!

 

Damnit!!! 4811 was the first XD I rode on the Q-46. at now its at Ulmer. Oh well. Cool pics btw,

 

 

Thanks a lot. I rode 4811 on the B64 this afternoon, and in the morning saw that on the B1. I snatched Queens Bus timetables from 4811 and it still has the Queens Bus map on it.

Pretty soon that's all you're going to see. The Orion 7 3gs are still plentiful, but I've only seen one LFS on the B1 today. The LFS days in Brooklyn look to be numbered.

Damn... looks like i'm not getting my ride on an XD40 on the Q88 anymore...

Great pics!

 

But you can ride the LFS on the Q88 lots of people here say there's no difference, so lets go LFS.

Thanks everyone! There's still some XD40 buses left in Queens but at this rate they'll be moving out of there quickly! I thought the B6 was the more popular route of Ulmer Park.

Dunno about popular, but when you want to wait along an UP route for all the types, you can't go wrong with the B6. It runs practically everything.

That's true. Best spots would be anywhere around Flatbush Junction or at least east of Avenue J during Rush Hours when buses are like every 3-5 minutes frequency. I did see 4839 on the B6 also but couldn't get a good shot of it :(
