  1. Has anyone had issues with the red vests in regards to taking photography? I went to Lyon and one red vest stopped me after seeing me take out my Canon. He said he had to make sure it was alright with his superior. The other red vest who was with him just said it was fine, since people take photos anyway with their cameras. I did tell them though I was taking photos of the trains and that I had come all the way from New York. A waste of 10 minutes.
  2. It was a real image of the cutaway. It doesn't work for all vehicles.
  3. So I used https://www.vehiclehistory.com/ right now, and it has done something I have not seen before. It now has a photo of the vehicle. Maybe not all have them, but this is pretty interesting.
  4. I am glad I was able to go to Toronto recently, along with @Orion6025. I saw the CLRV for one night only, and was not able to get photos of them in the day, but what's done is done. Here is 4074 at Niagara: IMG_2394 by GojiMet86, on Flickr 4170 and 4085 at Front: IMG_2388 by GojiMet86, on Flickr IMG_2390 by GojiMet86, on Flickr 4069, 4040, 4164, 4170 (again) at Niagara: IMG_2392 by GojiMet86, on Flickr IMG_2401 by GojiMet86, on Flickr IMG_2406 by GojiMet86, on Flickr IMG_2409 by GojiMet86, on Flickr And what will be the chariot of my only ride on one of these, 4155: IMG_2431 by GojiMet86, on Flickr IMG_2424 by GojiMet86, on Flickr
  5. I've spent countless hours on making descriptions and tags for these photos (all 35,000 of them). These photos aren't the most important, but I more or less upload them for archival purposes, along with the occasional artistic shot. I don't like mass-posting photos on FB, and IG is just really for occasional photos, not archives. I just wish Flickr gave more a damn about this.
  6. It turns out that the Gillig Phantom with license plate 645VKH is former a 1996 Central Contra Costa Transit Authority unit, 9607, with VIN number 15GCD2011T1087792.
  7. STO Gatineau MCI Classic 9135 on route 55 in front of Parliament.
  8. The usual orange. Think the blue might be reserved for more "special" buses (artics, smaller ones). I think they are being used to replace the retired Orion V CNGs, not the VII.
  9. In the Transit Photos & Videos FB group, someone posted a photo of 1971. That is a new XN40, and word is that there will be 15 of them, presumably numbered 1970-1984.

    The new Acela trainsets. https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2019/11/14/amtrak-releases-photo-first-prototype-new-acela-trains/nLWjQ9umczWQ5p5Pq0UDiJ/story.html
  11. Thanks. Would you be also able to rename "Village of Kiryas Joel" to "Kiryas Joel Area Transit" ?
  12. Hi, can the following 3 be renamed to Monsey Trails? Monsey Tours 7703-a.jpg Monsey Tours 7702-a.jpg Monsey Tours 934-a.jpg And this one (Monsey Trails 9931-a.jpg) to Monsey Trails 9931 (2nd)-a.jpg? Thanks.

  16. I had a chance to visit Dallas recently. The light rail system is pretty cool. I had to ride it from the Airport to go to my destination. The train runs at higher speeds on this newer extension and whenever there is a grade crossing it sounds the horn, with a sound very reminiscent of old steam engines. The LRVs now run in 2-train consists, and with the Texas State Fair going on, 3-train consists were also a common sight. The McKinney Avenue Transit Authority (MATA) M-Line trolley was celebrating 30 years the weekend I went, but I couldn't attend the actual celebration party. It is a hit with the locals. On the bus side, the Proterras are still running, but on the 749 from the Convention Center. The new XN40s are in service, and I only saw them in the regular local scheme. Unfortunately, no sight of any of the older diesel buses as they were retired last year. Also threw in some ABM Aviation at DFW at the end.

  17. Wonder why the 2019 Gillig numbers were split. Why not just do 1931-1937?
  18. The M9 finally made its first revenue run on Wednesday 9/11/19. It made its first run as the Port Jefferson 1621 out of Huntington, and arrived at Hunterspoint Avenue. It then deadheaded into LIC for about an hour, and went back into the main line.

  19. Eastern Coach, a Chinatown operator, is doing Flixbus in New York City: IMG_5999 by GojiMet86, on Flickr IMG_7396 by GojiMet86, on Flickr
  20. It looks like AutoCheck has decided to stop showing the VINs. FaxVIN (https://www.faxvin.com/license-plate-lookup) seems to be a different alternative.
  21. I was thinking about First Transit, because I hadn't seen those buses on the wiki. Are they new and original to Citibus?
  22. Looks like the ElDorados belong to First Transit. That numbering fits in with the other ElDorados running at Rutgers and College of Staten Island.
