    I'm a transit buff that loves all things trains and buses.

    I tend to largely focus on Queens when busfanning, specifically around Astoria and Long Island City.

  1. MTA is buying 5 Solaris Urbino electric buses for testing. Solaris is a Polish-based company trying to make inroads in North America. https://www.nyscr.ny.gov/iframes/openAdDetail.cfm?id=9FD889F2-B544-4E66-8877-D5958A6821DF
  2. Green Mountain Transit (GMT) in Vermont is seeking to transfer its seven 2013 MCI D4500CT, numbered 930 to 936, to NYCT. The MTA was scheduled to send staff to GMT from 2/21 to 2/23 to inspect the buses. Hopefully it will accept them. 930, 932, and 934 haven't been used since 2021, and the rest since 2022, so they still have life in them. No word yet on new numbers or depot assignment. My speculation is they will probably be numbered 2305-2311, continuing the D4500CT range. https://ridegmt.com/wp-content/uploads/Packet-4.pdf
  3. I keep all my bus info on excel sheets and use Notepad to create the code. However, if I have to create a whole new page with hundreds of buses, I then have to copy and paste a format in Notepad, then manually put in the information for each individual bus, many times over. Example: STEP 1) ==Details== {| border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" class=sortable !Fleet<br>Number !Thumbnail !YEAR ![[VIN]] !License plate(s) !Notes |- align="center" id="5001" |5001 | |2008 |#########8####### |LICENSE PLATE |align=left|Former bus from other agency STEP 2) Copy and paste this section over and over again, and then changing the necessary information: |- align="center" id="5002" |5002 | |2008 |#########8####### |LICENSE PLATE |align=left|Former bus from other agency |- align="center" id="5003" |5003 | |2008 |#########8####### |LICENSE PLATE |align=left|Former bus from other agency . . . etc. There are CSV-to-MediaWiki and HTML converters online that work, but they're not quite the format/language that we use in the CPTDB wiki, so the output code isn't the same. So it comes out like this: ! FLEET || THUMBNAIL || YEAR || VIN || LICENSE PLATE || NOTES |- | 5001 || || 2008 || #########8####### || LICENSE PLATE || . . . etc. Is there a specific program or website that anyone knows that can do that heavy lifting, but in the CPTDB wiki format?
  4. Former XE60 slow-charge demonstrators 1754 (ex-1250) and 1755 (ex-1251) have found a home at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey as 765 and 763, respectively.
  5. Here's another provider for American plates. Sometimes it catches plates that vehiclehistory and dcontrol can't. https://epicvin.com/license-plate-lookup
  6. Sylveon on YT makes a lot of airport videos. Here's one of the D40LFR at LGA:

  9. Damn, wish I had seen that when I went there a couple of weeks ago. Do you have a link to a photo?
  10. I'm not roasting you. All you had to do was just post it once in its own thread, not flood more than 10 threads with the exact message. Simple.
  11. Spamming, by the Webster Dictionary definition, is: "unsolicited usually commercial messages (such as emails, text messages, or Internet postings) sent to a large number of recipients or posted in a large number of places". You have sent the exact same internet posting to a large number of places (threads). Yes, that's spamming.
  12. Please stop spamming the forums with this.

  14. No. Just being wrong makes you wrong.
  15. If you guys want to counter Metrolinx and the Fords, you are more than welcome to start your own channels or videos or blogs. Steve Munro does the Herculian job here. Don't really post much in the Canadian part of the forums, but yeesh, some of you got me smh......I know envy and jealousy when I see it......I've seen it in the NYC railfan community......
