Now and then (230)

Recommended Posts

Now - January 18, 2013230-W.jpg

 

Then - December 29, 2011230-D.jpg

 

In addition to the nose panel having been replaced, the front doors on 230 have also been replaced and they are now single-pane.

 

The Then is unique, but I actually prefer the Now because the small MTA logo that far down without a stripe above it seemed odd.

Had they moved the (MTA) logo on the front a bit up to where it is now, a white front on 230 would have looked great!

Yup this was done between August, November. She was out since August, they sent it back to New Flyer. They even replaced the MTA New York City Bus logo in the back, they replaced the silver poles inside to yellow poles. Now she's a plain jane like the rest of them in the fleet.

Thought you meant Orion V #230.

Or if it had been a giant MTA logo on the front (as is the case on the O7s and D60HFs with no stripe on the front), that would have been good too.

 

BTW, 230 is still unique for now: it is either the only or 1 of only 2 C40LFs (depending on if 185 has cameras) with the license plate on the stripe and onboard cameras.

That logo needed to be bigger if anything.

Nope, only way 230 is unique is the amount of engines it went through ... already. That and however they managed to get the brakes sounding like that. Some of CP's 500s are fitted or getting prepped to be fitted with cameras.
