Own any bus

Recommended Posts

if I could own any bus, it would be...

a 1976 GM Fishbowl in the old TTC CLRV colours.

any Flyer D901

any New Flyer D40

a Flyer D800B

a old 91' TTC Orion 5 in the old Scheme

and an MCI MC-9.

oh and of course id have to have a Classic London Routemaster bus!

Suffice to say I like classic buses, and Flyer/New Flyers!!!!

P.S i have more on my list, but if I stated them all, this post would be endless :)

Oh yeah!

That bus was at Allegheny?I always thought it was a Comly bus

It has started out as an Allegheny bus for many years, then moved to comly later in life. Didn't originally have the orange led sign either.

charlottebusperson: You guys must have better buses than that, past or present? Nova LFS 1st gens are a bunch of crap boxes...

 

Nova LFS 1st gens? You must be kidding me. At RTC (in Québec City), we had the best ones!

Anyways, I would like to have RTC's #1301 or #L9401.

I would have to go for a 1982-1991 Gillig Phantom (with a 6V92TA and Allison HTB-748), a 1988-1994 New Flyer D40 (or D60) (with a 6V92TA and Allison HTB-748) or a 1980 GMC RTS (with a 6V71N and Allison V730). Those are my favorite buses. I do like Neoplans and Orions, but just a little less than these mentioned earlier.

How about a motor home converted from a Nova LFSe Artic, featuring massive roof-mounted battery packs for extended range - as to go from Toronto to Montreal on a single charge, plug-in charging compatible with Tesla's Supercharger network, and sophisticated self-driving technology? And for those times you want to get behind the wheel yourself, a completely digital driver's area with no analog gauges or controls, CAD/AVL with full GPS navigation functionality, and as a bonus, working passenger info displays and broadcasts that announce imaginary stops along routes which you can program yourself? (Oh, and all-weather capability is a must - with motorcoach-style insulation, windows, and plug doors as needed!)

Can I have more than one?

 

 

If not I would like a D60LF with a DD50 engine, AC and the TransLink 2000 D60LF style seating.

My second choice would be a D60LFR or XE60, they are tied.

 

 

I would rather not own a bus than own a Novabus (except 4th gen)

My tastes sure have changed in the past 3 years.

In 2017 I would say: 

1980-1994 Gillig Phantom with a DD 6V92TA/Allison HT-740/747/748.

1989-1999 Ikarus/NABI 416 with a DD 6V92TA/Allison HT-748, Cummins M11/ISM/Allison B400R (Muni 8042 hehehe ;) ) or DD Series 50/Allison B400R. 

1982-2002 Neoplan AN440A or AN460A with a DD 6V92TA/Allison HT-740/747/748 or Cummins ISM/Allison B400/500R.

1988-1994 New Flyer D40 or D60 with a DD 6V92TA/Allison HT-748.
