Hi, just for an introduction, I'm trying to recreate one of the 1997-1998 D40LF's that OCTA used to have in their fleet. The reason of posting is the opinions of fellow bus geeks, as well as corrections or recommendations to add. Some Images.... The bus is still a Work in progress but has some of the basics to OCTA's livery and seating config. Sources to come soon Sources: https://octabus.wordpress.com/about-octa/ https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Octa-5407a.jpg https://www.flickr.com/photos/busdudedotcom/7174699900 https://www.flickr.com/photos/busdudedotcom/7174700010/in/photostream/ More updates to come
The 2001 New Flyer D60LFs from the OCTA were never repowered from and delivered with Detroit Diesel Series 50s according to Facebook at Orange County Transit Fans. These buses had Cummins ISL upon delivery in late 2001 to early 2002, making them the very first New Flyer D60LFs to come with that engine. Also, the diesel ISL engine was offered early in 2001, as a result of the problems the 7200s and 7300s had with their underpowered Detroit Diesel Series 50s, at which they were repowered in 2004-2005. Units 7401-7412 were built in October 2001, while units 7413-7420 were built in November 2001. These buses all have about 65 American Seating 6468s. So far, unit 7406 has been taken out of the fleet as of today. Revert this edit due to the fact it would draw misconception among many bus fans in Southern California. License plates for remaining 7400s: 7402: 1078684 7404: 1078686 7405: 1078687 7406: 1078701 7408: 1078689 7409: 1078702 7414: 1078691 7416: 1078697
