    Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority

    The MBTA is committed to going eventually to battery electric buses - both the Silver Line Waterfront and Harvard trackless operations will very possibly be replaced by those in the 2020's.

    Centro (Central New York RTA)

    Looks like Centre Area Transportation Authority in State College PA was the winning bidder for the C40LF's that were up for auction.

    Amtrak

    I was surprised as well to see those units. I hadn't heard anything about it before seeing the Youtube videos.

    Um, yes they are spending money on the hatches. Video proof here -

    Amtrak is retrofitting the P32's with escape hatches in the nose to allow those locomotives to lead on any track in the Park Ave. tunnel. There are various photos and videos online showing these modified units in service.

    Five D40LF's and nine C40LF's are being auctioned - all listed in 'poor' condition and the CNG's will have their tanks disabled: D40LF's: 2502, 2513, 2515, 2516, 2520 C40LF's: 2524, 2525, 2528, 2530, 2531, 2533, 2536, 2539, 2540

    Gillig product discussion

    I don't recall ever seeing those on a Gillig.

    Gillig product discussion

    Gillig has always been very customer-focused in that way. Special doors (or no front doors), or the BRT front without the roof fairings and back end? No problem.

    NFTA-Metro

    I saw a few 2200's during one of my recent visits that looked like they'd had body work and a paint job done.

    Any idea what these are replacing?

    It's possible the two spotted in Syracuse were diesels (I didn't see them personally).

    Two new NFTA NovaBus LFS CNG's were spotted this afternoon on Interstate 81 north of Syracuse on their way to Buffalo - one was 1803.

    BYD "E-Bus"

    BYD knows how to play the game.
  15. Wow - surprised to find that there was no thread in this forum for the R-GRTA in Rochester, New York. Well, there is now! Question - the wiki roster page for Regional Transit Service shows five New Flyer XD40 Xcelsiors being delivered last year. Does anyone have photos of these buses? I did not hear a thing about this order - the only buses I was aware of RTS getting in 2011 was the Gillig 900-series.
