  1. Similar to the GM fleet reminiscing, I created this thread to share the memories and photos of your experience with the TTC's non-GM Fishbowl fleet prior to 2002 such as Classics, Flyers, New Flyers, Orions (I, II, III, V, VI and pre-refurbished VII), and NovaBUS RTS. If anyone has photos prior to December 31, 2016, feel free to post your old photos from old shoe boxes, slides, even library microfiche or whatever is there. Just don't claim that they are your own if they are not. The following photos are sampled below from my collection: Thanks to @Grapejuice for this inspiration for this thread.
  2. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Transit Authority received a grant to fund JTA's Bus Rapid Transit system. The Small Starts Capital Investment Grants from the Federal Transit Administration has awarded grants totaling $38 million, according to a JTA press release. http://futureplans.jtafla.com/Pages/default.aspx' rel="external nofollow"> .
  3. Okay, I know it's a bit late to announce this just now, but on November 1st and 2nd, 2014, Market Street Railway is having another excursion. They did this at the same time in 2013. http://www.streetcar.org/muni-heritage-weekend-november-1-2/. Buses and Trolleys guarenteed (I believe) to show up: 1938 White 784 #042 (White 24A Gasoline/White Hydrotorque) 1939 St. Louis Job 1704 #506 (Trolley) [Display Only] 1950 Marmon-Herrington TC-48 #776 (Trolley) 1969 GMC T8H-5305 #3287 (8V71N/Allison VS2-8) 1976 Flyer E800 #5300 (GE Motor) The usual F-Market 1948-1952 PCC's. 1896 SF Muni Trolley #578 1912 SF Muni Trolley #1 1914 SF Muni Trolley #130 I am not so sure on the 1975 AM General 9635-6 (6V71N/Allison VH9), but I saw it in the shop along with the 1969 GMC New Look. There may be more stuff, but this is the best of my knowledge. I am going.
  4. I have some thoughts about the Flyer D900 series of buses. Mainly, about their engines: I would think the mega-rare Cummins VTB903 diesel engine was the only hi-power option for the USA-spec buses until the 6V92TA was made available and when the D900 was being phased out in favor of the D901, since unlike the GMC RTS II Series 03 and the Grumman Flxible 870, the Detroit Diesel 8V71 engine was not cataloged (the lo-power 6V71 was, though). I would think the VTB903 was not available in Canada given that country's preference toward the 6V71N Detroit Diesel. ~Ben

    Cummins VTB-903 Engine

    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?
