For North American buses: New Flyer C40LF/C40LFR/XC40 (Frameless to C40LFR and XC40) with ISL G from Cummins engine and ZF Ecomat 6HP594 gearbox, and For European Buses, my choice goes to Mercedes-Benz Citaro CNG with Mercedes-Benz engine and ZF Ecomat 6HP594 gearbox. For Articulated buses, my preference in North American buses goes to New Flyer D60LFR/XD60 (Frameless) with Cummins ISL and ZF 6AP1700B gearbox and for European Buses goes to Volvo B10M-G with Camo Bodywork and THD 102 KF Engine and ZF 4HP590 gearbox.

Good luck with that one. AFAIK, the H5-60 coaches were only built with DD 8V92TA engines. :P

Never underestimate the capabilities of a determined fabricator with torch and a mig welder. That having been said, the screaming jimmy is a far better engine, in my opinion.

While we're at it, why not go for the gusto and shove in an ISX. :P

Now that would kick all kinds of ass. If you're going to do that though, dual 8 inch chrome stacks would be a must. I'm not really familiar with the layout of these buses, but my understanding is that the power train is under floor in the front portion of the bus. If that's the case, then you could pretty much fit whatever you wanted under there, you just have to sacrifice luggage compartment for engine space.

If given the choice, I'd gladly take any of the following buses:

-GM New Look (preferably a 30 ft one)

-GM Classic

-Orion V

-Flyer D901

-New Flyer D40/LF

All but the D40LF with four-leaf exit doors, as per the TTC's buses.

Imagine showing up to school in a TDH-3302. :)
