Nova Artic *IN SERVICE* on the Bx12!!

Recommended Posts

I Came off the (A) shuttle at 207th fresh off a night of railfanning with an old friend, and i JUST MISSED it! it departed 207/Broadway to Bay Plaza at 2315. I was so desperate I think I left a trail of foam from 207/Bway all the way to 10th. It got held up by some traffic going around the bend back to 207, so I ran across 207 leaving behind a 1/2 mile foamline. Just as it looked like I was going to catch up to it at 10th Avenue (I was half a block away) it pulled off. sry, no pics, but i think the foam trail is still there.

 

On the bright side, I did get a slant (A), my first 160 (E), a 160 (Q) to Astoria, and came within 5 minutes of getting an NG hybrid on the M60 (my friend got on it to go home.)

Yea, it's true.

 

Wow, there was a huge time difference between my other post here and the post I had made in the link provided by SevenEleven. I hope you all respect that time difference.

Last night, I ask local B/O it was running last night, but he told me it going to running all day today.

 

I hope that's true, but I won't be going anywhere near the Bronx today. I'll be waiting for pics though.

Ditto on the pics. Sure would like to see that trail of foam, tho.

HEHEHEHE!!!!! :):P:P

The Sanitation guys would have to do a lot of work on cleaning the foam on Fordham Rd left by busfans.

:cool:B)B)

It is now part of the TA fleet. According to someone on buschat it passed the 30 day test and is now the TA's bus. It will be repainted and renumbered.

That is interesting, considering that that bus isn't a production bus. I would expect Nova Bus to also upgrade the bus to production status.

Most likely Nova will upgrade it to a production bus, now that the MTA's showing interest in ordering some. The fleet diversity'll be good for NYC; and upstate New York (Nova Bus is building a plant in upstate Plattsburgh) could use the jobs.
