I thought all LA S50G coaches were swapped to ISLG

Nope; there's not a lot of them out there but there are still C40LF, as well as 40ft and 45ft NABIs running around with S50G.

In my first LA apartment two years my bedroom faced this arterial with fairly minor bus service (something stupid like a 48 minute headway). Anyways ... I never heard the bus go by unless it was a Series 50. In that case, my room vibrated. If anything else was assigned, I might as well have not been on a bus route.

Aren't the C40LFs being swapped though? Pretty sure all the old C40HFs were. Also I just keep forgetting about NABI...

I don't know if they are still actively repowering those units. Retirement is beckoning.

I wonder if FH Transit still has those S50G Orion V's. But on the topic of SoCal, Omnitrans 2000/01 C40LF's with the Cummins C8.3G engines sound super nice imo.

Thank you. I was just about to do this myself (although a lot more directly through text) since this discussion was going way off topic.

At least Vancouver related lol

And technically, I'm not being a hypocrite, because I was pointing out that this discussion had nothing to do with Metro Vancouver. The post you are referring to is related to Metro Vancouver. 

Fine print sucks, eh?

Hmmmm, so I guess talking about XN40's and Nova buses in the artic page isn't being " off topic " ? Lovely logic you got there bud. 

Also somehow posting this is still keeping it " on topic " ?

So from what I’m getting here, instead of making sure nothing goes off topic. You’re more concerned about me reposting buddies really cringy photo edit to use against my argument 🤷🏽‍♂️ Whatever kid 🙄

No, I just don't like people using my photos in ways that I don't prefer people use them.

Well in that case, I'd suggest you to put some more thought into who you're going to blame. Because for starters I didn't create that atrocious photo edit of that picture. So before pointing fingers at me, do a little research.

All right, for the last page, it has had nothing to do with  TL D40LFs and their retirement. First, it was to do with SoCal C40LFs, and now we're just pointing fingers.

ENOUGH!

Now let's get back on topic once and for all.

7190 is retired

I don't think anyone has mentioned in this thread that 7190 is retired.

It's behind the other dead buses at RTC (7294 3289 7430).

Been a while.

7294, 7377, 7352, 7288, 7286, 7214, 7229, 7371, 7403, there should be a few more off the top of my head that I updated on the wiki but did not mention here.

That is correct & no plates either. The New 183XX's Nova's that were last week have all vanished & possibly gone to VTC?
