It's going to be real interesting seeing those buses down there.

 

As for the Far Rockaway Branch of the (A) line being shut down for such a time....I know Lefferts Blvd riders will be happy with the service they are getting as I, at times, ride the (A) to Lefferts to get home lol

by sunday (if they can manage while they still lift and truck R32's to the rockaways) the (A) will go to howard Beach, so it will be the split service again

I'll find out if they'll be putting some of those LFSAs on regular route too. If so, I'll be downstairs getting me one every f---ing day. You'll know it's Acela when I'm the only LFSA on the 46. lmao

Glad to hear they've worked out all clearance issues and are ready to train ops...so it's 6 buses for training now, and then the full order is expected to start to arrive in a few months? Can't come soon enough, in terms of capacity...as for the increased headways, that won't be so hot.

I doubt they will, but then again, who am I to say? :P

 

It makes me wonder how they'll restructure the Kings Plaza stop to accommodate the LFSAs. I guess we shall wait and see.

No reason to restructure the lanes - they can handle those buses. It's much clearance in there.

Huh?

 

Sorry, I should have known you were referring to the future order. These LFSA's are for shuttles. You do have a point, perhaps they will train most if not all OP's now.

 

With all the crap that gets thrown around here, I don't know what the hell to believe anymore. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

The usual crap you hear is from motherfuccers who assume, and guess.

 

I'll give you guys an update when I go into work tomorrow.

I guess he's talking about the length of it...you know how the 46 always take up the most space, and the B9 is all the way in the back corner like its a second-class citizen lol

All i will say is I hope they don't cut too many runs (2 artics replacing 3 regular buses) because middays the B41 is just so terrible.

Relax man, it was 2 am and I saw training, thought of the next order, man is allowed to make a mistake once in a blue moon, sheesh. No one talking about assuming or guessing, so no need to break balls over it.

Nah no worries, I just made a mistake, which we don't allow around here any more.

Yeah thats what I meant lol. Usually when I'm down there, the 46 does take up a lot/the most space along with some 41s. I guess if/when they axe some runs, they'll be able to handle the spacing.

Who said anything about you? Did I point any fingers at you? You weren't even who I was talking about. Stop having a guilty conscious. Lol

No dude, my fault. Totally forgot Flatbush was getting an order, and honestly I should have clarified in my original post. Please don't take it the wrong way.

Alright, so I'm here... We have 18 LFSAs, with 5833 just pulling up to the depot. Everything is parked in the backyard. Mostly 5800s right now. Pics will follow tonight.
