  1. Alternatively, try selling it on Ebay or something?
  2. It turns out that the problem was that I wasn't depressing the brake pedal before changing gears, and so that did the trick. Many thanks!
  3. For anyone who has the Chicago add-on, have you had trouble with getting the bus (the D40LF, specifically; I haven't made extensive use of the DE60LF) to move? When I release the parking brake and put the transmission into drive, I can't move the bus. Usually this problem solves itself if I let the bus idle for a couple of minutes, but the only explanation I can think of for this behavior is a lack of air in the brake system; the OMSI 2 manual on Steam says a dashlight will inform me if I have no air, and I am getting no such message. Anyone know what I could be doing wrong? I also own the three bus add on pack and have never had this issue with the buses from that pack; I'm able to start the engine and go instantly.
  4. Not to mention, what sorts of things you could see that aren't special now, but they will be in the future. When I was a kid, I couldn't comprehend why photographing Orion VIIs in Toronto would ever be significant. They were everywhere, not like the GM New Looks or Classics or D40s or Orion Vs, and they all looked the same. I still did it, fortunately, and as a result I have photos of OGs with the original painted front and rear doors, a sighting which will never be possible ever again. Always photograph everything you can, even if you can't see why you should bother.
  5. Oh, I'm quite calm. I didn't realize that idle curiosity is now frowned upon, though. Cheers.
  6. How long does it take to process the MTO, does anyone know?
  7. Looks terrific. I suppose there's no chance of any OGs receiving the new livery, is there?
  8. Does anyone know how many Bilevels with the old cream and pink interior scheme are still around?

  11. If they were going to offer fleet number decals, what was the point of having you choose the number on your bus during the ordering stage? I would think it'd be simpler to leave the bus numberless and let customers add their own number when they get it. As for the route displays, the product page on the webstore indicates multiple route decals come with the standard edition bus, yes.
  12. PocketTrack is reporting 4041, 4081, and 4108 in service, on 504 and 501 (x2) respectively. Can anyone confirm?
