  1. Apparently Clallam Transit got some new Hybrid mini buses according to this article and I wonder if #629 is one of them in the attached image....: http://www.clallamtransit.com/news.html . I would guess 629 is one of them as there are photos of #624 in the above link. Also, during my recently visit to Port Angeles last month, I found some Gillig Low Floors numbered 611 up to 615 which are not listed on the Wiki. I visited Port Angeles back in September of 2012 as well and did not see any Gilligs numbered higher than #608 which is also the highest listed on the Wiki page. So if anyone has any more information, it would be greatly appreciated. http://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Clallam_Transit
  2. Could anyone please check these below to see if indeed they are the correct VINs for the first 50 Orion I's delivered to Indy-Go, then the Indianapolis Public Transportation Commission? 8301: 2B1129775C5440572 8302: 2B1129771D6606600 8303: 2B1129776D6607601 8304: 2B1129772D6608602 8305: 2B1129779D6609603 8306: 2B1129775D6610604 8307: 2B1129771D6611605 8308: 2B1129778D6612606 8309: 2B1129774D6613607 8310: 2B1129770D6614608 8311: 2B1129777D6615609 8312: 2B1129778D6616610 8313: 2B1129774D6617611 8314: 2B1129770D6618612 8315: 2B1129777D6619613 8316: 2B1129773D6620614 8317: 2B112977XD6621615 8318: 2B1129776D6622616 8319: 2B1129772D6623617 8320: 2B1129779D6624618 8321: 2B1129775D6625619 8322: 2B1129776D6626620 8323: 2B1129772D6627621 8324: 2B1129779D6628622 8325: 2B1129775D6629623 8326: 2B1129771D6630624 8327: 2B112977XD6631626 8328: 2B1129776D6632627 8329: 2B1129772D6633628 8330: 2B1129775D6634630 8331: 2B1129771D6635631 8332: 2B1129778D6636632 8333: 2B1129774D6637633 8334: 2B1129772D6638635 8335: 2B1129779D6639636 8336: 2B1129775D6640637 8337: 2B1129773D6641639 8338: 2B1129774D6642640 8339: 2B1129770D6643641 8340: 2B1129777D6644642 8341: 2B1129775D6645644 8342: 2B1129771D6646645 8343: 2B1129778D6647646 8344: 2B1129776D6648648 8345; 2B1129772D6649649 8346: 2B1129773D6650650 8347: 2B112977XD6651651 8348: 2B1129778D6652653 8349: 2B1129774D6653654 8350: 2B1129770D6654655 Thank you, Ben
  3. I have a question: were there any U.S. transit agencies who ran their Orion I's, V's and/or New Flyers with the Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engine and Voith transmission? This was the powertrain of choice in Canada for the following: YORK REGION TRANSIT (MARKHAM TRANSIT) (MARKHAM, ON) 2033-2036 - 1988 Orion I 01.508 2044-2047 - 1989 MCI Classic TC40-102N 2048-2052 - 1990 MCI Classic TC40-102A 2053-2054 - 1991 Orion V 05.501 YORK REGION TRANSIT (RICHMOND HILL TRANSIT) (RICHMOND HILL, ON) 511-524 - 1989 New Flyer D40 (T-drive) (renumbered 8911-8924 by YRT) YORK REGION TRANSIT (EX-GO TRANSIT) 1130-1132 - 1987 Orion I 01.508 (renumbered 8710-8712 by YRT) BRAMPTON TRANSIT (BRAMPTON, ON) 8894-8899 - 1988 Orion I 01.508 8901-8909 - 1989 Orion I 01.508 9014-9028 - 1990 Orion I 01.508 9129-9137 - 1991 Orion V 05.501 9176-9180 - 1991 New Flyer S40HF (ex-GO Transit) CALGARY TRANSIT (CALGARY, AB) 7001-7010 - 1992 New Flyer D40HF (V-drive) MISSISSAUGA TRANSIT (MISSISSAUGA, ON) 9020 - 1990 Orion V 05.501 OAKVILLE TRANSIT (OAKVILLE, ON) 901-907 - 1990 Orion V 05.501 928-929 - 1992 Orion V 05.501 DURHAM REGION TRANSIT (OSHAWA TRANSIT) 8121-8123 - 1987 Orion I 01.508 (Oshawa 121-123) 8124-8128 - 1989 MCI Classic TC40-102N (Oshawa 124-128) 8129-8132 - 1990 Orion V 05.501 (Oshawa 129-132) 8133-8136 - 1991 Orion V 05.501 (Oshawa 133-136) 8137-8141 - 1992 Orion V 05.501 (Oshawa 137-141) 8142-8145 - 1994 Orion V 05.501 (Oshawa 142-145) DURHAM REGION TRANSIT (WHITBY TRANSIT) 8311-8315 - 1990 Orion V 05.501 (Whitby 9011-9015) 8316 - 1991 Orion V 05.501 (Whitby 9116) 8317 - 1992 MCI Classic TC40-102A (Whitby 9217) 8318 - 1994 Orion V 05.501 (Whitby 9418) 8319 - 1988 MCI Classic TC40-102A (Whitby 8819, originally to Queens Surface Transportation, NY 943) But here (in the U.S.), this same powertrain could be found on the following buses: BEE-LINE (WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY) 760-874 - 1990 Flxible Metro "B" 40102-6T MIAMI-DADE COUNTY TRANSIT AUTHORITY (MIAMI, FL) 9067-9073 - 1990 Flxible Metro "B" 40102-6T GREATER PORTLAND TRANSIT DISTRICT (PORTLAND, ME) 9005-9021 - 1990 Flxible Metro "B" 35102-6T FRESNO AREA EXPRESS (FAX) (FRESNO, CA) 9001-9023 - 1990 Flxible Metro "B" 40102-6T 9101-9112 - 1991 Gillig Phantom 40/102TB/6V92TAC ALAMEDA-CONTRA COSTA (AC) TRANSIT (OAKLAND, CA) 1469-1483 - 1984 Gillig Phantom 40TB/96/6V92 2601-2652 - 1990 Gillig Phantom 40/102TB/6V92TAC 2701-2731 - 1991 Gillig Phantom 30/102TB/6V92TAC 2732-2761 - 1992 Gillig Phantom 30/102TB/6V92TAC 2801-2860 - 1993 Gillig Phantom 40/102TB/6V92TAC SACRAMENTO REGIONAL TRANSIT DISTRICT (SACRAMENTO, CA) 9001-9045 - 1990 Gillig Phantom 40/102TB/6V92TAC QUEENS SURFACE TRANSPORTATION (QUEENS, NY) 943 - 1988 MCI Classic TC40-102A (to Whitby Transit 2005, renumbered there as 8819) LEHIGH AND NORTHAMPTON TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY (LANTA) (LEHIGH, PA) 8721-8730 - 1987 Orion I 01.502 (30 ft) 8931-8935 - 1989 Orion I 01.502 (30 ft) 8936-8950 - 1989 Orion I 01.507 (35 ft) BROOME COUNTY TRANSIT (BINGHAMTON, NY) 601-617 - 1987 Orion I 01.508 (40 ft) Getting back to my original question, does anyone here know whether or not there were any U.S. transit companies (other than LANTA in PA) that had at one time ran any of Orion I's, Orion V's and/or New Flyer D40HF's or D40LF's with the Detroit Diesel 6V92TA/Voith (D863 or D864) powertrain? I know BC (British Columbia) Transit in Vancouver (BC) ran many 1991-93 New Flyer D40LF's (1st generation) which used the 6V92TA/Voith as the powertrain... but did any U.S. agencies order the same for their D40LF's? Thank you, Ben
  4. Could you please verify all five of these VIN numbers for these Orion I's that were operated by Clallam Transit (Port Angeles, WA)? 581 (1984 Orion I 01.504): 2B1129277E6894990 (if 6V71N engine) or 2B1129776E6894990 (if 6V92TA engine) 582 (1984 Orion I 01.504): 2B1129273E6895991 (if 6V71N engine) or 2B1129772E6895991 (if 6V92TA engine) 583 (1990 Orion I 01.507): 2B1139779L6002595 584 (1992 Orion I 01.508): 2B1169777N6003125 585 (1992 Orion I 01.508): 2B1169779N6003126 Thank you, Ben
  5. http://www.durhamregiontransit.com/AboutDRT/Documents/TSH%20Business%20Case%20Analysis%20Oct%2027%202004_PartTwo.pdf Some of these may already have been added to the Orion I VIN page here, but here's a few you might have forgotten: Ajax-Pickering Transit Authority: 2044 (1982 Orion I 01.504; ex-Timmins Transit no. 54): 2B1129279C5416539 (document incorrectly says 2B1129277C5416539) ~Ben
  6. Is it true that the 1982 and '83 Orion I's--the U.S. versions finished in New York--used the Allison HT747 transmission (rather than the original HT740) behind their DD 6V92TA engines? I'm talking about those buses as run by such agencies as: Pacific Transit System (Raymond, WA) Milford Transit District (Milford, CT) Montachusett Regional Transit Authority (Fitchburg, MA) Yakima Transit (Yakima, WA) SLO (San Luis Obispo) Transit (San Luis Obispo, CA) San Luis Obispo Regional Transit Authority (SLORTA) (San Luis Obispo, CA) GATRA (Taunton, MA) IndyGo (Indianapolis, IN) Waukesha Metro Transit (Waukesha, WI) The 1982 GATRA Orion I's are unique in that they were the only such 35-foot units finished in NY to carry the old model 01.504, since most of these got out with the model 01.506, which continued into part of 1984 (the year both the 01.504 and 01.506 were replaced by the 01.507). Did these three buses, numbered 8217 to 8219, use the Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engine and Allison HT747 transmission? ~Ben
  7. Does anyone here remember LANTA's (Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority) 1987 and '89 Orion I's? The 30-foot models were numbered 8721-8730 and 8931-8935 and the 35-foot models were numbered 8936-8950. http://www.philadelphiatransitvehicles.info/LANTA.php According to the above link, they came with Detroit Diesel 6V71N engines and Voith D851 transmissions, but I'd like to think they all instead had Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engines and Voith D863 transmissions (especially the 1989 models), same as those Orion I's in Canada, such as in Pickering, ON (922-923, 924-925 and 926); Markham, ON (2033-2036); Oshawa, ON (121-123); and Brampton, ON (8894-8899, 8901-8909 and 9014-9028). ~Ben
  8. http://www.angelfire.com/ca/TORONTO/builders/orion1.html Is there any proof as to why the same order number of 177 was used for both Clallam Transit's and Jefferson Transit's orders of the 1984 Orion I? Both orders are for 35 foot long buses (Clallam's being of the older design while Jefferson's was of the then-current design). Could this mean consequently that both sets of two buses (581-582 for Clallam and 848-849 for Jefferson) came with Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engines and Allison HT747 transmissions? ~Ben
  9. Does anyone remember the 1981 Orion I 01.504 demonstrator bus that was purchased June 17, 1983 by the Quality Inn (or "The High Q") of Orlando, FL? Because it was built in 1981 it would have had a Detroit Diesel 6V53N engine, but once it set foot here in FL it had to be changed to the 6V53T engine. Or, with modifications to the rear compartment, it could have had the 6V92TA engine. ~Ben
  10. http://www.angelfire.com/ca/TORONTO/builders/orion.html If you gloss over this page (link above), Orion built three types of seating configurations for its two bus lengths (30' and 35'): transit, coach (suburban) and airporter, for a total of six configurations (this would increase to nine in 1984, when the 40' length showed up). The transit and airporter configurations had both front and back doors, but most examples of the coach configuration did not. A few exceptions to the rule did exist: transit-style buses without back doors were built for Beaver Bus Lines of Winnipeg, MB in 1985, 1988 and 1990, and for Transport of Rockland County of Pomona, NY in 1988; while CDTA of Albany, NY purchased some coach-style buses with back doors. The airport versions of the model 01.506 (which replaced the 01.504 in 1982) were built for Shortway Lines (Philadelphia International Airport) and Leaseco (San Francisco International Airport). Both orders used the Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engine and Allison HT747 transmission. Is it true Orion did not assign a specific model number to the airport seating configurations (unlike the transit and coach configurations)? Transit bus models: 01.501 = 30 foot, no air conditioning 01.502 = 30 foot, air conditioning (originally designated USA specs when first brought over here in 1978, a year before the near-identical TMC CityCruiser showed up) 01.504 = 35 foot 01.507 = 35 foot (replaced 01.504 in 1984) 01.508 = 40 foot Suburban bus models (all front-facing seats and no back door): 01.503 = 30 foot 01.505 = 35 foot 01.510 = 35 foot (replaced 01.505) 01.509 = 40 foot Airport bus models: 01.506 = 35 foot ~Ben
  11. Does anyone know exactly all of the Rockwell front and rear axles that were used in the Orion I bus in all years 1976-1993? This is information I'm hoping to get added to this page in the future: http://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Orion_Bus_Industries_%27Orion_I%27 Older Orion I brochures (and my 1981 TMC City Cruiser brochure) list the following: Front: model FF931, 12,000 lbs. GAWR Rear: model R143, 23,000 lbs. GAWR From the 1983 Orion brochure that I have: Front: model FF932, 13,400 lbs. GAWR Rear: model R143, 23,000 lbs. GAWR But in 1984, the 35' and 40' buses (the latter of which was introduced that year) went for higher-rated axles. Front: model FG943 or 17100, 14,600 lbs. GAWR Rear: model 59742, 25,000 lbs. GAWR The 30-foot models also had a newer front axle that year in model FF942 (13,200 lbs. GAWR) but retained the R143 rear axle. In 1988, Rockwell introduced these new rear axles: 30 foot buses: model RC-23-160, 23,000 lbs. GAWR (replaced R143) Buses longer than 30 feet: model 61142, 26,000 lbs. GAWR (replaced 59742) To round things up: 1976-1979 models: FF931 front / Q148 rear (34,000 lbs. GVWR) 1980-1982 models: FF931 front / R143 rear (35,000 lbs. GVWR) 1982-1983 models: FF932 front / R143 rear (36,400 lbs. GVWR) 1984-1987 models: 30 foot: FF942 front / R143 rear (36,200 lbs. GVWR) 35 and 40 foot: FG943 or 17100 front / 59742 rear (39,600 lbs. GVWR) 1988-1993 models: 30 foot: FF942 front / RC-23-160 rear (36,200 lbs. GVWR) 35 and 40 foot: 17100 front / 61142 rear (40,600 lbs. GVWR) Some questions I want to ask you all: 1. Did Orion ever catalog the Rockwell FG943 front axle (14,600 lbs. GAWR) for their 1984 I's (models 01.507 to 01.510)? 2. Did Orion ever catalog the Rockwell Q148 rear axle (22,000 lbs. GAWR) for their pre-1981 I's? Thank you very much! ~Ben
  12. Is it true that the CyRide 1983 Orion I 01.506 numbered 1408 (later 908) had the Detroit Diesel 6V71TA engine and Allison HT740 transmission? According to the engine code in its VIN number (1) that you have here, it did. All other Orion I's in the CyRide fleet had the naturally-aspirated 6V71N (rather than the 6V92TA), even through as late as 1988. 1=Detroit Diesel 6V71TA 2=Detroit Diesel 6V71N 7=Detroit Diesel 6V92TA ~Ben
  13. Were there any Orion I's produced from 1982 to 1986 (when specified with the Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engine and the Allison MT644, HT740 or HT747 transmission) that sounded closer to a Gillig Phantom built in those same years mentioned? They can be of any length (30' for 01.502 or 01.503, 35' for 01.506 or 01.507, and 40' for 01.508 or 01.509). ~Ben
  14. Does anyone remember what the exact serial/VIN numbers are for Grey Goose Bus Lines' 1983 Orion I suburban buses numbered 101 to 197 (later Gray Line East 4101 to 4197)? Only three are known: D5493730 (number 125/4125) D6702732 (number 160/4160) D5498741 (number 165/4165) Number 160/4160 is also one of a handful of Canadian-bound Orion I's to be built in New York instead of Ontario. From 1982 to 1984, it should be known that Orion I serial numbers had the first three of the six digits in the serial number following the model year code (C=1982, D=1983, E=1984) represent the production line sequence. It began when they built Markham Transit 2016, serial number C5356457, which left the Mississauga plant as the 356th unit finished in May 1982, and ended with Whitehorse Transit 14, a model 01.506 bearing serial number E5563999, which left Mississauga as the 563rd unit finished in July 1984. For serial no. D5493730 it was the 493rd bus to leave the Mississauga plant whereas for serial no. D6702732 it was the 102nd bus to leave the Oriskany plant between (for some odd reason the first number in the plant sequence code jumped from 0 to 6 in early 1983). ~Ben
  15. http://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Kingston_Transit_8382 When I entered that VIN for this 1983 Orion I, as typed (2B1129573D5509770), the VIN Decoder website says the check digit is incorrect. Therefore, I must now submit to you whether or not which of these two VINs is actually the correct one. Is it either 2B1129273D5509770, or 2B1129579D5509770? As the 6V53 was not used in the Orion I after 1982 save for the last OC Transpo 30-foot models (8371 to 8392), then I can only guess at whether or not Kingston's 8382 had the 6V53 (according to the typed VIN there) or if it had the 6V71N like many '83 Orions did. The engine code, which is the 7th digit in the VIN, would mean: 2 = Detroit Diesel 6V71N 5 = Detroit Diesel 6V53N (C40 injectors) ~Ben
  16. This question is for the experts of the GATRA bus fleet: is it true that the 1982 and 1983 Orion I's they ran (8217-8219 from 1982, 8320-8322 from 1983) came with Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engines? If yes, then the transmission behind them would be the Allison HT740 (8217-8219) or the HT747 (8320-8322). ~Ben
  17. http://www.angelfire.com/ca/TORONTO/builders/orion1.html I'm hoping we can create a database of complete serial numbers for the 1982-84 Orion I deliveries. These serial numbers have the line sequence number representing characters 12-14 in the VIN number, which started at serial no. 457 (C5356457 goes to Markham Transit #2016, delivered 5/1982) and ended at serial no. 999 (E5563999 goes to Whitehorse Transit #14, delivered 7/1984). The first U.S.-built Orion I carried the serial number C6001449 (goes to Pacific Transit System #D10, delivered 7/1982). However, the 1982 Orion Is delivered to Toronto Transit Commission (8730-8739) may not have had the line sequencing in their serial numbers. You can see, when you read the info in the link above, that it gets rather messy when you read the serial numbers for the Grey Goose Bus Lines deliveries... even the line sequencing in these serial numbers is out of order in places. Confirmed serial numbers are listed for units 125 (D5493730) and 160 (D6702732, possibly one of the few U.S.-built Orion Is to go to Canada) among these deliveries, both delivered to said agency in September/October 1983.

The reason I assume units 9301-9312 to use the Cummins L10-280E engine is because, by 1993, that derivation had replaced the older, mechanically-controlled L10-240B and L10-270B engines. I apologize if any of the VINs I typed here are already in the databases mentioned. ~Ben

  24. Can anyone identify if this 1983 Orion I 01.502 owned by Roy McCullough is an ex-Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport Transportation bus? It sounds like it has a Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engine and Allison HT740 transmission. Thank you, Ben
  25. What is your opinion on the old Orion I and TMC CityCruiser series buses? In the U.S., these were produced under license by TMC, then a Greyhound subsidiary, in the years 1979 to 1982. In mid-1982, it was decided that the Mississauga, Ontario, Canada-based Orion Bus (then called Ontario Bus Industries) was to open a U.S. plant, in Oriskany, NY. The TMC version of the bus came only in the 30-foot length (the Orion I, then sold mainly in Canada, was also available in a 35-foot length). Both variations until 1982 only came with a Detroit Diesel 6V53 engine backed by an Allison MT643 automatic transmission with locking torque converter. A 6V71 prototype bus was tested in Canada, and it eventually became reality. After Orion I began making its first buses in the U.S., the 6V53 was replaced by the 6V71 (naturally aspirated up to 198 hp, and turbo-aftercooled up to 225 hp) and the more powerful 6V92TA producing 253 hp (the latter was the only California-compliant engine available (when specified as 6V92TAC), until the Cummins L10 showed up in 1986). The transmission changed, too: instead of the MT643, the Orions were given a choice of two Allison automatics (the MT644/7/8 and the HT740/7/8) and four ZFs (4HP500, 4HP590, 5HP500 and 5HP590), to be joined by the Voith DIWA D863.2/D864.2 (most common behind the Cummins L10) and the Renk Doromat 874B in 1986. The most common transmission other than the Allison was the ZF. It was also during 1982 that a 35-foot long bus showed up in the U.S., and was joined by a 40-foot bus in late 1983. A few 30-foot Orion I's were powered by Caterpillar 3208T engines (an engine usually found in school buses) producing 215 hp. ~Ben
