Egg Habor will have 18064-18110 or possibly to 18119.

right now 18110 should be the highest numbered bus on the property. None of the others past that have been confirmed for NJT yet, just have the VINs confirmed as built units.

Update on the 18000 series VINs.

18001 - JP014768
18002-18035 - JP014786-14819
18036 - JP014822
18037-18080 - JP014872-14915
18081-18096 - JP014921-14936
18097-18105 - JP014945-14953
18106-18110 - JP014958-14962

All the VINs start with 1M8PDMBA.

Thinking 18097-18099 might also be lav coaches too... anyone can find out?

I guess the missing vins were built for other TA's in between NJT buses.

Some of them are actually D4505's, but I don't know who they were built for.

The Year Two order so far consists of 17185-17240 and 18001-18110, making for a total of 166 buses. Need 21 more buses to make the final total of 187 for the year, so looks like we will be getting the balance of that within the next few weeks. Missing buses should be 18111-18131. In September likely picking up at 18132, and then at some point starting the 19000's when the 2019 buses begin being built.

September buses could be 2019's series 19,000.

18111 and 18112 have arrived. Part of the group of 10 immediately following 18110 in VIN sequence.

Buses through 18119 have been inspected by the state, with the exception of 18116. Keep your eyes open for these buses.

18116-18119 is projected to be at Saddle River, they have 18115 as a training bus(for the cameras), and 18118 and 18119 are already there.

Nice pis Dave. I see you got a pic of an old NJT Eagle I thought 5604 was the only Eagle saved. I am glad another one was saved.

There are a small number that are still out there. NJT sold those off very cheaply in 2001, through ABC Bus. I think they were going for only about $8,000 apiece. Believe me they were anxious to get rid of them!

I bet they were anxious since they were only 12 years old when sold.  Many Mci's are about 17-18 years old and still going at NJT.

Generally, buses are sold to transit agencies with the expectation of a 12-year lifespan. NJT manages to make most of its equipment last lots longer than that - there are some NJT MCI coaches on the road today that have passed the million mile mark! But as I said, everyone hated those Eagles so much so can you blame NJT for wanting to dump them so quickly?
