I was there and it wasnt and operator who told us, it was someone from the HQ, forgot his position and an New Flyer employee. They told us the numbers and everything. If there is any info i find ill post it in here.

You actually might be onto something with this, as it appears that the LFA is being discontinued in favour of an all Xcelsior lineup (eventually). The BRT page on NFI's website has been replaced with info on the Xcelsior's BRT applications, as well as a picture of the Zum XDE40 and the new XC60.

Nice pitures man!! Im really liking the way that livery sits on the XDE40.

New Flyer has actually updated the images section of their website. One of the pictures is of WMATA 7001, curb side. As I suspected, they went with the narrow rear doors.

Check it Out.

Those are the mid-sized doors. They also offer flip-out doors that are several inches narrower.

I like the red-painted area just below the windshield — it definitely stands out from the silver base and adds a nice "flash".

I also noticed that the "local" or "express" text appears to be missing. Could it be that WMATA found it too troublesome (i.e. keeping "local" buses on local routes and likewise for express routes) and simply eliminated it?

I see im not the only one who likes the red paint under the windshield! I agree it gives the bus another great look!

And youre exactly right!! WMATA did just took em off. There not on any of the buses they repainted also!
