Krapf''s Transit 1994 Gillig Phantom #9411 is done. Retired and listed for sale. Farewell Gillig Phantom 2005-2017.

It was towed off their lot within the past week.

With in the past week Krapf has taken delivery of a XD40 for their Navy yard contract. They are wanting to get 1-2 more for the Navy yard contract. They will be reassigning the Van Hool's to their Chester transit contract.

Yep, and I've heard some of the recent New Flyer Xcelsior XD40's that Krapf's has in its fleet have rooftop fairing. As of now, all Navy Yard Fleet buses have transitioned from dark blue paint scheme to new paint scheme (like an artist drawing).

 

Also from 4-21-2018: Krapf's Transit/Rover Transit 2010 Van Hool A300L #2915 on Route A at Exton Square Mall

Also sometime last month, Krapf's has a new addition to its fleet (likely for Phlash): A new 2018 MiDi Bus numbered #1811. Unlike the existing ones in the fleet (though look similar), it is manufacturered by Alexander Dennis USA who took over production of those buses from New Flyer in May 2017.

Rare: Phlash (Krapf) 2014 New Flyer MiDI MD35 operated on detour route at Arch Street because of crane working on Market Street (between 10th and 11th) causing that segment of Market Street to close.
