  1. Hello Transit Enthusiast World! I know everyone here loves everything to do with public transportation or we wouldn't be on this forum; public transportation is an interest I hold dear as well. I have a particular passion for creating transit operator point-of-view (POV) videos on YouTube of bus and rail systems for the enjoyment of transit enthusiasts everywhere; I also record some time-lapse videos of scenic road trips I take. To share my work with the CPTDB community I will be posting links to videos in this thread whenever new content gets posted to my channel. Many videos were created before this thread started, so I'll start posting those in order, and then add the new stuff as it gets published. I know it's cliché, but if you enjoy these types of transportation videos and want to support their continued creation the best thing you can do is subscribe to my channel on YouTube, hitting that elusive 1K subscriber mark would also allow me to begin recouping some production costs from YouTube, so any help getting there would be great! Creating these videos requires a lot of negotiation with transit agencies, obtaining film permits and film agreements, providing liability insurance, covering travel expenses, etc., so your support is much appreciated!

  3. I know this is a bus forum but I wanted to show what I have for portable fans. It's a cool hobby for me though. One fan I own. 1993 Super 6 inch Desk Fan (Made by Shell Manufacturing Co.) My first fan ever. I found it at my cousins house in his basement. 2004 Lasko 20 inch Box Fan (Has a new paintjob and a new blade.) GARBAGE FIND 2009? Sunbeam SBF-2010 20 inch Box Fan (Will be getting refurbished in a few days) GARBAGE FIND 2008 PolarWind 20 inch Box Fan (Currently in the process of it's refurbishment and the cord was missing when I found it) GARBAGE FIND 2014 Sunbeam 20 inch Box Fan (Bought it at Wal-Mart for 24.98 CAD) Other's I've either sold or parted out.
  4. A “mini-hybrid” thermal conversion kit (with an advanced “electric” fan cooling system that replaces the hydraulically driven fan) is saving money for bus fleets by giving them better economy, preventing them from overheating and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. And they run quieter, too. In Michigan, bus fleets in Lansing, Grand Rapids, Bay City and Saginaw all have them installed. It's a way that municipalities, hard-up for cash to replace buses, are choosing to improve the quality and safety of their existing fleets. The kit is from Engineered Machined Products. And, with the success of the mini-hybrid system in Michigan's test communities, the company is looking to have them installed in buses in Detroit and on Michigan transit buses in a full-scale refurbishment program. The result, the company says, would be a savings of almost $100 million, a 7 percent improvement in fuel economy and reduced carbon footprint. The idea is to use available money to help improve transit rather than putting all resources into rail and new hybrid buses. "We can get you the same result with this mini-hybrid retrofit at substantially less cost," EMP says. Craig Allen, director of maintenance at Capital Area Transportation Authority in Lansing, confirmed that EMP's mini-hybrid engine is performing as well as advertised. "The fuel saving experienced has been between 5 and 20 percent depending on the engine configuration," Allen says. "The installation of the EMP system reduces engine compartment heat, exterior cooling fan noise and a reduction in weight. We were able to remove over 500 pounds out of our engine compartments through the removal of hydraulic system tanks, plumbing and pump." Allen also praised the mini-hybrid thermal system for reducing noise pollution. "When operating in the urban environment, ambient exterior noise is something we have always been aware of," he says. "We do everything we can to reduce overall bus noise and when you combine the EMP system with our hybrid buses, the levels are significantly reduced even further." http://up.secondwave...ation42512.aspx -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Anyone know what TA’s are using these thermal conversion kits? They sound like a great thing that everyone should be installing.
