This is my first post on this website, so here goes (forgive me if this isn't the right place to post it). I've been a fan of transit and buses for many years now; I think it goes back to when I was a kid and growing up riding the bus just about everywhere. Now I've grown to the point where I want to be a bus collector and gather a series of buses, both past and present. Now the one I'm looking for in particular has been rather hard to find. I'm looking for a Neoplan AN460 still intact that hasn't been torn apart yet or scrapped in a junkyard. I've looked all over, eBay, Transit Sales, Bargain Bus News, and many other used bus sales websites, but to no success. Out of the many buses I've looked and seen over the years, this one has always stood out to me is it was a common bus I rode in Pittsburgh back in 2011-2013 before they were retired and now owning one for me would serve a nostalgic purpose. Does anyone out there know of any person, place, or transit agency that might still have one and is looking to sell it in the future or is up for sale right now?
I was looking on the SF Muni page, and had found that their AN440 had B500R transmissions. I did some more looking, and many other AN440s and AN440LFs had this same configuration. Does anyone know why they would be configured B500Rs, when other companies such as the Los Angeles MTA and Boston's MBTA (as well as Paul Revere Transp.) have found B400R transmissions sufficient?
