Sir, why don't you take a SEAT?

Recommended Posts

I did, in fact, take a seat, going one of the longer (but cheaper) ways to New London. Took 3 hours.

 

First, I start with 397, a rare commodity in these parts (or anywhere within a 200 or 300 mile radius). 397 is a 2004 29' Gillig Advantage.

There is two in this series (396 being the other), and had I done a little more research before getting there, I would've gotten the other at the depot. Oh well. Next time I guess.

 

Next, 394. 394 is also one of two (393 is the other). This is a 2003 New Flyer D35LF, and these are the only ones with a Series 50 EGR. There's also two 40 foots, 391-392.

Next is SEATs newest stuff (but that's soon to change with some 2018 Gilligs coming). 2013 Gillig BRT  Hybrids with a Cummins ISB6.7 and BAE HybriDrive. There's also two of these. 1301 is a 40 foot, and 1302 is a 35 footer.

This is probably my favorite picture of 1301 because of the mental hospital patient that's looking at me while I take the picture.

And lastly, their New Flyers, the unfortunate but expected majority of their fleet.

And lastly, but somewhat least, their 2006 Gillig (557-558).

Hope you enjoyed!

Those buses look in pristine condition.  I'm impressed.

 

Outside is one thing. The inside looks like a New Haven bus, but 3x worse, especially on the 04 Gilligs.

 

 

Nice pics! :)

 

Thank you.   :D
