Where are 8340's emergency lights?

Recommended Posts

This is a pic from the user here ORION (NOT ME) of 8340, recently whitebacked. Does anyone know why it doesn't have emergency lights seeing as it's a ex- NYCTA 1990 TMC RTS-06?

They were probably removed when it first went into MTA Bus service.
Nah it had them before repaint.
My guess would be that the bus was originally supposed to be retired and had a few parts removed. Does that thing have a white back?
Ohh yes it does. :tup:

They were probably going to scrap the bus and realized that it could still be used. The Emergency lights were taken off to go to another bus. Thats my guess.

But none of the others have them removed

 

8177 also has the lights removed. The real puzzle is why an 18-year old bus would be repainted.

Those are all ex-DOT buses.

 

Bus 8340 is ex-NYCT.

 

I know already.

 

His point is that the ex-DOT buses never had emergency lights, and all NYCT buses are supposed to.

1990 TMC at MTA bus don't have the emergency lights,because they use to have Roll-sign in them...when they were at MTA bus the older electronic sign were taken out and they put roll-sign in their place.

Why 8177 and 8340 lost the "hooligan lights" is beyond me.

 

BTW, a sidenote: 8368 is now assigned to East New York and got the New York City Bus lettering back on all sides.

Also saw it by where I live; I didn't shoot it again because I had shot it with MTA Bus lettering.
