  1. I noticed this a couple days ago and I agree it is a huge shame. Faxvin is missing a lot of plates that Usacarrecord had. However, Vehiclehistory still has the plate check feature and it seems to be working fine again. I think Usacarrecord & Vehiclehistory were both the top notch options for plate checking. https://www.vehiclehistory.com/license-plate-search
  2. I found this pdf document with very nice detailed information and photos of the NABI's when they were being inspected by SFO. This includes all 22 units that they acquired before auctioning off all but 6 of them. I have it linked on the NABI wiki page now too. Enjoy. 412946709.pdf
  3. I've been informed NABI's 145-148 at MV are finished (pretty much retired) and will be returning to North Base for decommissioning at some point. My friend was the last to drive 145. Pretty sad because 148 was the first NABI 436 I rode. 145-147 were also fun rides as well.
  4. None that I've heard of. I wish someone could have bought one of these instead of the 2002 Bee Line units.
  5. I recently had one that featured my friend's Ex-Muni 1969 GMC New Look T8H-5305 3182.
  6. I already wrote all of this on the wiki, but I thought I'd share the info here as well on the Transurbano Ex-Muni Neoplan AN460 spotting in Guatemala. I am sure it is 6411. A guy named Carlos bought 6202, 6226, 6235, 6239, 6247, 6271, 6275, 6410, 6411, 6414 & 6415 at 2 auctions in April-May 2018 with plans to sell them in Panama (he literally told me that at auction). I later found 6202, 6226, 6235, 6239, 6271, 6275, 6410 & 6414 stored in a lot in Sacramento where a friend was parking his bus temporarily. In January 2019, the storage yard did a lien sale of 6202, 6226, 6239, 6271, 6275 & 6410 on Craigslist.... they all got scrapped a month later (junk records were found by me). 6235, 6247, 6414, 6411 & 6415 remained unknown (no registrations or junk records). In this photo, I can tell this bus has a flipdot sign, which leaves only 6414, 6411 & 6415. Finally @UpDownAcross38 & I looked at the "watch your step" sticker in auction photos and confirmed only 6411 had a direct match. That means possibly 3 or 5 units were sold to Transurbano, hopefully.
  7. I mean you don't really have to post every photo you take on here. That's actually what drove me away from this thread. Ironically the Phantom 2840 never left Muni despite what I was told. 9120 & 7031 are still sitting in Sacramento.... thousands of dollars wasted in auction storage fees for the last few months.
  8. I believe only 4 left now. They were quickly pulled from service almost overnight.
  9. There is already a samTrans thread... no need to make a new one just to ask a question. Anyway, I don't remember which routes they run on besides the ECR and sometimes the 294 maybe. Only 2 have been delivered and put into service.
  10. Ha, that's an old photo I took! I remember that day.
  11. I was furious because I was working on adding more listings etc. to the wiki from 2006 and older. I can recognize certain usernames of winning bidders and can see which company got what. The images not loading is pretty frustrating as well. Yes they seem to get blocked as soon as they end. Also before this happened, auctions that weren't completely sold (not sold or did not meet the reserve) redirected users to the login page. This was inconvenient, and then soon applied to almost all closed auctions, which is ridiculous IMO. I'm sure this can be reverted, but I don't think there are enough complaints for action to be taken.
  12. I just noticed only certain agencies have old auction listings blocked, while others don't. This is very bizarre. https://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/list/past?orgid=202854 https://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/list/current?orgid=13260 https://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/list/past?orgid=13260
  13. I am still trying to figure out their reasoning for this. I saw the change happen practically overnight last month and was furious. I am considering sending them an email and I recommend you do the same so there could be multiple complaints. I've done the same thing with their listings and have discovered countless amounts of info over the years. I found extremely rare photos of long gone buses on there too. I've tried this: http://web.archive.org/web/20190725214948/http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:https://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/auction/view?auc=1288259 , but no luck on many links and no photos still. This link on the other hand has a photo. http://web.archive.org/web/20150815005130/http://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/auction/view?auc=1007926 I suggest archiving any current auction links you want to save at the moment. When you're taken to the login screen and you're signed in, this screen comes up. I'm sure all of the auctions are still on their server, but access is blocked:
  14. I saw them recently on govdeals. End of the Phantom era, 1984-2019.
