    The Orion V might not even be permanent. Notice they didn't even same a Flexible Metro B D or E!

    That sucks, for the newest 5000 series units were only from 2004. That'd be like the MTA scrapping some R142/As. Could have used some for Work trains. If they retire the 6000s next, then they really would be foolish. The 6000s IIRC are Metro's second most reliable cars. I know that #2506, #2523, #2532, #2553, # 2580-2597 and #2599 are all retired. Do you know if any C40LFs are left on property? I know WMATA had like 4 or 5 2000 Orion VIs @ CET a few months ago. They need to have a museum fleet of buses too.

    They are going down hill anyway and have been so for the last 4-5 years. Same with subchat.

    Any updates on how the R-179s are performing?

    Bee Line - Westchester County NY

    I will say this, Bee Lines has one of the oldest fleets now, for most of their buses were built between 2001 and 2009.

    Any thoughts on NICE bus's "Let's go" Campaign? Seems very promising , but this will require at least 1 or 2 more depots to be built, especially for an OTR coach fleet.

    Does anyone know if Cinder Bed Depot is going to be another Weekday only garage or will they have weekend service too?
  9. What does the overhauls include? Suspension work, Engine component upgrades, new paint jobs, etc?
  10. The 2011-2012 3Gs are getting rebuilt? Sorry if I'm late. I new here. Also, when do you think the last of the Orion VIIs will be retired? Circa 2025? Looks like NY MTA/NICE might be aiming for that time frame.

    TTC GM Fleet Reminiscing

    You see, no offense, but that's WAYY before my time. I grew up in the 90s, 2000s, and early 2010s (or as I like to call this decade, the early two thousand teens). I grew up with DD50/G/EGR/G-EGR series powered buses and Cummins L10G powered buses.

    Buses these days have no personality. Hate this era.

    That is so stupid. The EGR version is suppose to be a cleaner version of the classic DD50 series engine.
  14. Were they any cancelled bus orders that TTC made over the years?

    Those Orion VIs were 1998 models right?
