Wayne got 19068-19117. 50 buses exactly. 

A bus which is probably 19118 was inspected yesterday at Newton Ave. which might be its assignment.

Hey Dave and everyone,

This morning during the rush I saw coach 19119 on the 190X New York Exp. Wayne garage is already at 52 new coaches thus far.

It looks like Newton Ave (Camden) is getting their next batch of new buses, 19126 is on the 317 and 19128 is on the 418 Express.  However does anyone know what happened to 18126 ? That has been MIA ( Off MyBus now) for almost 2 months.

19131 is on the 317 right now heading towards Lakewood. It will be in Asbury Park around 7:35 so I'll try to get some pictures then.

N.B. Buses 19119-19127 were delivered with Cummins X12 engines (2017 EPA) and carry the VIN code N for the engine. All other units so far have the old ISX-12 engines.

BTW the last bus inspected on Thursday was 19143. 41 buses to go to complete the order and my understanding is they have all been built.

2 different distinctive sounds from both engines the moment it revs up. Rode 19119 yesterday on the 190. Good takeoff power

I thought Newton Ave can't fit all the 45 footer Cruisers and the turns on the 409 are too tight for them?

Doesn't seem to be the case, MCIs have been running on the 409.

I saw 18126 running the 317 this morning, in Brick headed towards Philadelphia, so it's probably still out there somewhere by the Joint Base MDL by now.

Oh cool. Thanks, I am guessing maybe the GPS tracker on it isn't working then because it has not been visible on MyBus now for weeks.

Up to 19144 is at Newton Avenue; Camden ( I think).  19144 on the 409 . In fact tonight, all of the 409 buses out tonight are all new coaches, the oldest bus that is running tonight is 18129(which is hardly old). No 75s in sight.

So I assume the next batch would be 20xxx for 2020 models? Or is the order completed?

Except if option buses are built, the entire NJT order of 184 buses for 2019 models has been built. and are from 19001-19184. About 20 buses are still to be delivered; highest inspected so far is 19162. The 2020's, which will be numbered from 20001 and up, should begin showing up in the fourth quarter, which will be the fourth year of the order.

I think 19124 is at the Meadowlands garage, it is on the 320 tonight per MyBusnow. 

 

Each garage has gotten two buses with the Cummins X12 engine (the 2017 EPA compliant nextgen of the old ISX-12 engine, and possibly standard equipment on the 2020 buses) as demos/test buses.

Wayne - 19104, 19119
Ironbound - 19120-19121
Howell - 19122-19123
Meadowlands - 19124-19125
Newton Ave. - 19126-19127

19136 and 19137 are eluding me and they might be X12 engines as well, possibly for Wash Twp or EHT (they don't have any X12 test units yet); I don't see their VINs (KP015376-KP015377) with history no matter what engine code I put in there, and I don't yet have inspection/registration data. They may not be NJT buses...?

Dave, i have seen both 18136 and 19137 on both the 317 and 409 in the last two weeks, so they are in service.

Now it seems that newton avenue is up to the 19150 range, as i have seen 19145 and 19151 on the 409 a few minutes ago.

19151 is the last of the Newton Ave. buses. 19152 and up are at Wayne; highest seen there is 19166.

Saw an Instagram post with 19172 and 19174 this weekend. The end of the 2019's is near.

I now do not believe they are. Highest inspected is VIN KP015408 which corresponds to highest seen in service which is 19166. Corrections to the above page with all the VINs will be done as soon as I can get confirmation.
