MCI D4500CT Delivery Thread (CNG, Diesel & Hybrid-Electric)

20073 tracked at Pembina

20076 highest unit built. I do not know if they're shutting Pembina down, but MCI said they'd be closing plants on a case-by-case basis. The only plants they have are Pembina and Winnipeg.

What about the former NABI plant in Anniston, Alabama? I figured to ask if they can build MCIs over there, or is it just transit buses

Anniston is building (and has finished, I believe) the current NYC order of New Flyer XD60's.... The Pembina plant is strategic for MCI as it's very close to their headquarters in Winnipeg. I don't foresee MCI going down there to build buses.

Meanwhile I think we are in a holding pattern with the new buses. Nothing's been delivered of late, 20044-20050 are sitting in the CMF, 20051 is apparently still at Allison, and 20052-20053 are supposedly on the property someplace. Whole lot of buses sitting in the parking lot in Pembina as well.

20054 arrived at Allison this morning apparently. 

My guess is that NJT isn't delivering buses from CMF because they may not have the manpower to do so right now with everything going. Although it could very well be another reason.

We've been stuck on 20043 being the highest numbered bus in service for quite some time now, about 2 weeks. The buses past that number that are in NJT's hands have not been tracking, even at CMF. I'll note 20054 as delivered but not inspected.

St. Cloud built NYC's XD60s I believe. I think the CNGs were in Anniston.

No, plant code on those is F, which is Anniston. Those are the 2020 diesel ones that NYCTA took delivery of this year. the most recent gas buses (XN60) were built at Crookston.

Through 20056 have been delivered, and 20057 seems to be on the way.

20060 highest delivered unit. 20061 confirmed still in Pembina.

That's odd, because they were tracked out of St. Cloud.

Makes sense as St. Cloud is on the way to NY from Crookston.

The final two buses destined for Wayne Garage, 20057 and 20058, both passed state inspection today. We now have a logjam of 15 buses at CMF awaiting their entry into service. I can understand with the service cuts and other concessions to the Coronavirus (including reduced manpower at CMF) that NJT is reluctant to put new buses into service.

Ummmm Rockland Coaches has a few that can run there?

Unless I miss my guess, Coach USA Westwood (Rockland Coaches) does not have any D4500CT's yet.

20060 inspected yesterday, 20059 not inspected.

Nothing is tracking in Pembina right now. The line might be shut down.

Meanwhile some of the 2005x buses are tracking at CMF today. (Signs of life)

They do, not a lot though. Most are Flipdot D4500s.

Not for a long time. They very rarely run 45fters on the 181 or 188.
