  1. After about 9 years of riding the ETI 14TrSF's (trolleybuses) at SF Muni, there was not a single break down while I was on board until early 2019 when 5483 broke down on the 22 one night while I was with a friend. There was a time in 2015 where I exited 5493 on the 5, then a little while later I saw it broken down on the same route.
  2. Yeah that's what it was nicknamed, along with Purple Rain, Penelope, etc. This dead ebay link from May 2017 was the last time I saw it. It's either still sitting around somewhere (since the seller thought he had a fortune's worth of scrap, lol on that one) or finally gone. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1974-GM-Buss-Motor-coach-4-Parts-OR-RESTORE-/292100254325
  3. I think that bus might be gone, the purple stain ended up on ebay with a seller that said it would go to scrap if it didn't sell the last time I saw it a couple years back.
  4. There's a lot of files that will need renaming.... https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Special:ListFiles&dir=prev&offset=20180224195705&user=Cathay+888 @Articulated has addressed him as well. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/User_talk:Cathay_888
  5. No powertrain can compare to the DDEC 6V92TA/Allison HTB-748 in my opinion, best combo in existence; with the 2nd being a non-DDEC 6V92TA/Allison HT-740 or 747. I mean these take offs are just ridiculous:
  6. I'm not sure how this is considered an issue...
  7. I've spotted pages like this many times in the past and have fixed them. So just feel free to post the links to the pages here. Thanks
  8. I don't have one for bus spotting (and I have 0 posts on my personal account), but I was quite impressed with the UC Santa Cruz yard shots that were found on this guy's account.
  9. I got to check out the XD60 800 at Northbase the other day since my friend at SamTrans was giving my other friend a short tour of the yard. It was in the garage and dark, so the pics did not come out too well, but oh well. (6/2/19) . SamTrans Proterras 725 & 726 at Northbase. Everyone here calls them Potatoes. They've been having many many problems lately and cannot last a full day in service without an issue. (6/2/19)
  10. It's my favorite engine of all time.
  11. After years of not having any leads on Summit Stage's 2002 Neoplan VINs, yesterday with a bit of work I was finally able to acquire them all. They are not listed online anywhere else or on any production list. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Summit_Stage_542-551
  12. You know "Mitsubishi Fuso 6512" is Bob Ambrose Jr. right? A.k.a. the former YouTube troll. I'd ignore him haha. Throwback... now if only they could put an ETI on it.
