If a bus makes a screeching sound like this:

I dont know about RTS, but I know there are alot of whining ones.
Only one RTS I heard and sort of remember, I think #8897 was screeching...And there was one more from Jamaica but it was so long ago so I didn't pay attention to the bus ID.

I'll add what i can. Maybe post another list for (NJT) stuff. :)

 

- A

We wouldn't get many watching out for them for NJT, sadly. :D

It'll probably only be me adding to the list mostly, and I have a hard time remembering things like that cause I don't pay much attention anyway unless theres something important on the bus. :(

504 and 555 are Kingsbridge, not Stengel.

 

439, 442, 448, 450, 457, 468, 472, 491, 556, 563, 565, 567, 662, 664, 5289 (all Kingsbridge)

 

I like the idea of a list like this, but the thing with screeching is that it could go away easily. In some buses screeching may only be on and off so one time you ride a bus and you hear it, but the next time you ride the sound isn't there anymore. 562 was like this. Mysteriously the problem was fixed right after DOB2RTO had that bus taken out of service for something else (when he was still a bus operator) because the next time I rode it it didn't screech at all.

Add 9241-9243 to UP. Also add 941 from JG.
Uhh I rode 9241 and 9243 today and it didn't screech...

 

I'll add 495 and 544 though (Casey Stengal) and the others listed above.

Blah! How often are YOU around here? I thought so. :D:D

 

You'll end up seeing and hearing the obvious ones.

Ha I rode the 638 last Thursday on the Q44!

 

638 + 75 min X32 ride= FAIL

 

'89 Liberty MCI: I was waiting for you to see this, I know you know all of KB's screechers.

 

What's funny is I usually catch Screechy O5's out of KB when I'm avoiding them and now that I'm looking for them I keep getting 6200s
