What's up with KB's Orion V's?

Recommended Posts

Over the past few days I saw signs that two new batches of Orion V's are heading to Kingsbridge Depot: the mid-200s (I saw 252 and 244 with the unmistakable orange LED destination sign come one after another on the Bx10 this morning), and the low to mid-6000s we lost to Castleton (I saw 6040 on the Bx7 and 6042 on the M100 three days ago). Does anyone know whether these are isolated cases or whether KB will lose its 62xx and 4xx-6xx for 2xx and 60xx buses?

You saw them on the 10? I take the bx10 all the time, and never have I seen the orange-LED Orion V.

244 was on the bx10 on the 30th. I caught around 4 pm w/b.

 

KB got all of Amsterdam's 200s (AMS got 6300s from MHV). 450 and 453 are at Eastchester Storage so it appears 200s are retiring 400s. Which is a shame but the 400s rusted so badly most are beyond repair.

That is a shame. Older buses replacing newer buses, that are rusting before the older buses. Ain't the 200's 1993 models, as the 400's are 1995 models?????
