  6. http://metrotransitarchives.blogspot.com Hello, everyone: My name is Thomas Reaves and I ran a blog called Metro Transit Archives. In it, I will share photos and advice from my 17 years of being a transportation photographer. Below is a link to my site, which is updated regularly and I will back post all current entries and add more to this forum every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. So sit back and enjoy the ride.
  7. MTA Maryland finished putting in service the last of its 2012 order of 53 coaches. Soon they will begin receiving 10 XDE60s numbered 12081-12090.
  8. Interesting unit. More surprised Santa Monica went with a different numbering scheme (1300s) instead of 3600s or 3700s for the seating arrangement.
  9. That is correct. That is also one of the ways how New Flyer, Nova, and especially Orion was able to get back into NYC. Orion and Nova have plants in NY State just for that reason. Buy America isn't as strong as the Canadian version but only few choice transit agencies use it in their bidding contracts.
  10. My group is Metro Transit Archives. I'm not sure if you're there as well. I used to photograph anything, even with obstructions until another photographer made me realize how pointless it was, especially at layovers and terminals.
  11. That's completely crazy!!! While the operator was wrong in MOST of this incident, who the hell would chase down a moving bus to fix a ticket on the windshield when the meter maid knew she could mail it to the driver??
  12. New Flyer is almost finished delivering the C40LFs from the original NYC order but they recently picked up Orion's contract for 74 more C40LFs as well. Also, they were just awarded a 95 bus contract with WMATA and a 43 bus contract with MTA in Baltimore. Apparently, they are supposed to be two years behind but some systems have piggybacked orders to "jump ahead in line".
  13. Sounds like only about 45 buses, given most artics cost $500,000 and up (Diesel only) New Flyer is probably gonna push the XD40 to TTC if they award them the bid. The modifications to the D40LFR are such that most of the bodywork is interchangeable.
  14. Of course but it's surprising since it seems NABI has never made any overtures into trying to get into the Canadian market, even something as small as a suspension contract. Does this fall under the "Canadian content" rule or is that just for Buses and Trains?
  15. Looking at the list, why is there an item where TTC gave a suspension supply contract to NABI???
