  1. I would like to start a discussion regarding your reviews and opinions of transit vehicles in Québec. I think that this discussion would be better suited in the Québec Transit Discussion forum than the General Vehicle Discussion Forum.
  2. Hi Everyone, ANIME-AND-BUSES here, I'm new here and this is my first topic. So, in the future, I plan to buy a New Flyer bus hopefully when Santa Cruz Metro retires some of their models. But I want to ask others what was their experience with buying a used bus, and what do they do with it.
  3. El Paso - Los Angeles Limousine Express, Inc. is a bus company that links cities in the southwestern United States with El Paso, TX. Connections are also available to its sister company in Mexico. The fleet is mostly Motor Coach Industries (MCI) buses.

  5. Ready Bus Line #L380 was in Calgary, Alberta earlier today:
  6. I'm wondering if anyone besides me has a favorite bus/engine/transmission combination because of the way it sounds? Obviously a lot of us are fans of screaming two-stroke Detroits, but does anyone have another one they personally like? For me, it's a Nova Bus Classic with a Detroit Series 50 and an Allison B400R transmission. In this case the transmission is heard much more prominently than the engine, and I find the B400R's whine under acceleration very pleasant to listen to. Calming, if you will. My local system had such a Classic, until it was retired in 2014 when the transmission failed. 3:10 in this video: Trent
  7. What is your favourite model of bus? Why is it your favourite? Why isn't it your favourite? Comment below!
  8. 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.
  9. Does anyone know the exact release date of the T-drive Nova Bus RTS-06 Wide Front Door? I am trying to confirm that 1997 Nova Bus RTS-06 WFD's were V-drive only, but I am not 100% sure if that is truly correct.
  10. I will post all my new vids and flickr updates here. http://www.youtube.com/user/jmsalgorithms Sub if you want https://www.flickr.com/photos/93337835@N06/ Follow me here too if you want I'll start off with my 2 most recent. Meet up at Maple Meadows: Skytrain goes the wrong way:
  11. I couldn't find anything on this "photography forum" on school buses. I spotted this very old Crown school bus in good shape (from first looks) near Pier 70 in SF. I actually took this picture through the gate (which was quite difficult) and cropped it. Does anyone know what model this is at first looks?
  12. I don't know much about the Cummins VTB-903 engine. It seems that there also existed a VT-903. I have only seen the VTB-903 be used in Flyer D900 buses. Does anyone have more info?
  13. ( I am not sure why the pictures are sideways. I would suggest clicking on the thumbnails). On, June 11th, 2014, my mother spotted this mysterious GMC New Look (with an interesting marquee on it) in the Hunter's Point/Naval Yard area of San Francisco. I may go to the area to see it one day. Does anyone know the model by first looks?
  14. Are there any buses with Detroit Diesel 6V92TA's still running in California?
  15. Some VIN (vehicle identification number) codes may not match the attributes they actually have. I found this out: Queens Surface Corp. no. 847, a 1981 GM T8H-5307A, has a VIN of 2GHYT82J0B3500891 which, per the engine code letter, would suggest a Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engine but this bus actually has an 8V71N engine which should imply this code letter be an "H" instead of a "J." The correct VIN (with 8V71 engine) should be 2GHYT82H4B3500891. Another example is Markham Transit. Their two 1983 Orion I 30-foot buses have these VIN numbers... 2018: 2B1119771D5524814 2019: 2B1119773D5525821 ... which would suggest these came with Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engines but actually have 6V71N engines. The actual VINs should instead be: 2018: 2B1119272D5524814 2019: 2B1119274D5525821 Another Markham Orion I fleet are their two sets of 40-foot buses dated 1985 and '86. Engine code VIN suggests 6V92TA engine, but some say the actual engine is 6V71N. If that was really the case, their VINs should instead be: 2021: 2B1169270F5001229 2022: 2B1169277F5001230 2023: 2B1169279F5001231 2024: 2B1169270F5001232 2027: 2B1169276G5001401 2028: 2B1169277G5001407 2029: 2B1169272G5001413 2030: 2B1169273G5001419 ~Ben
  16. Some people like, some don't. Now let's discuss it, I have seen 607 in real, the train I was on started in NFS then I boarded in St. Catharines heading to the CNE the trip was normal until we reached the Willowbrook Yard and TMC and I saw a BBD 2000 series Bi-Level with it's doors partly painted In the new scheme. Then we reached Mimico to our delight 607 pulls up with a wired consist. 607, Cab, Bi, Bi, Bi, WC, Bi, Bi, Bi, Cab. That was caught on video, to me I like the new paint but, digitally it looks bad. Oh and BTW I got off at Exibition and saw the 607 from the platform.
  17. Since there is talk of expanding GO Trains into Niagara full time etc. I started this topic. Not much to say but here it is!
  18. Hi, I moved to Austria almost 3 years ago. My first trip to Innsbruck involved this brilliant red street car that took me up into the mountains. I simply had to live near and we have used it for everthing from skiing to groceries. It even acts as my sons school bus. I was highly motivated to make a special video of it for the world to see. I got some support from the public transportation department, who then asked me to make 3 or 4 more. Here are the first two. I really hope everyone enjoys them. If you are interested in seeing more photos and videos of the beauty of Tirol, you would enjoy my website. Anderson-Images.com
