Q44/Q20 Pics (Including XD60)

Recommended Posts

I Caught the XD60 but I was off guard so I I had was a zoom lens, so I apologize for the blurriness

 

Also, the XD60's display the blue and orange much softer and it doesn't hurt the eyes as much. IMG_6347_zpsgb0eotwi.jpg

I have a hunch that the dude sitting in the back of the bus in the second picture is a well regarded member here.

It is, and I was right next to him lol.

I was talking to the driver of 5987 this morning (run no 063) and he said that he saw many people talking pics of the bus from the bus stop. Also, quite a few people were using the USB ports, which surprised both of us as it was the first day in public service.

Honestly, I don't know many people from the community nor I am interested in meeting them. Not in a rude way, but frankly you should just start hanging out with people you don't know.

Excellent photos!

I was going to try to catch it on my way home from Queens College, until I checked BusTime and it was over 40 minutes away and still in the Bronx. I have to stay later tomorrow anyway so i may run into it...

Nah I was already running late, I just got lucky, because I checked bus time before I entered flushing and saw it approaching flushing too. 

Looks good. Got a ride this evening. I just hope they don't consider wrapping these buses in SBS.

I doubt they'll wrap it cause there currently is no SBS wrap, and the Q44 is the only line with wrapped buses so they can kinda get away with it.

 

However, the sign on the XD60 is much softer than the LFSA/XD40's so they use a different sign or is it just different programming.

I saw the XD60 pass by me in the black & red shuttle bus a few times...I couldn't believe my eyes. It's going to take some time to get used to the new buses...

These bus drivers get so salty sometimes. Just the other day I took a picture of the Q66 and a bus driver stuck his middle finger up at me. Anyway nice pics.

It's a different sign. The incoming XD60s/XN40s (maybe even the XN60s too) have a multicolored Hanover sign, instead of the Luminator Spectrum. MTA ain't all that impressed with that Spectrum sign right about now lol

 

Nice catch either way

Yeah I doubt it ever hit service

As long as you're respectful they usually don't mind, I've been questioned but never harassed to a point where I'd report a B/O

 

 

Nice pictures! One question, where was the second picture of #5987 taken? (Second from the top)

 

All the photos were taken in the downtown Flushing region. The XD60 photos were all taken by the library, I took them under the LIRR bridge because all I has was a zoom lens, hence why you can see a building that was a half mile away.

Depends on the time of day because there is a chance it'll get stuck in traffic on the Whitestone bridge. Probably between 1 hr and 1 hr 10 mins

Just as he said it can vary, but you can expect it to be anywhere from 15min early to 30 min late due to traffic

 

here's the schedule: http://web.mta.info/nyct/bus/schedule/queens/q044scur.pdf
