It should be known that the 10th digit used (the plant code) varies according to year range. Until 2002, all of the D40LFs bound for Portland, OR (TriMet ordered its first D40LFs -- units 2001 to 2022 -- in 1996, to be delivered in the fall of 1997) were assembled in Crookston, MN.

During 2002, this code letter's description was changed to signify final assembly at the St. Cloud, MN assembly plant, and so units 2601-2655 (fall 2002 delivery) and 2701-2725 (spring 2003 delivery) might have been built at both Crookston and St. Cloud respectively, although I'd suggest 2701-2725, being slightly later deliveries in the 2003 fiscal year, would definitely have been assembled in St. Cloud.

New Flyer then changed its U.S. plant code again, this time providing separate code letters for its two U.S. assembly plants in MN. Units 2801-2839, being 2005 builds, would've been made at either the St. Cloud, MN (plant code "B") or the Crookston, MN (plant code "C") assembly plants, as would the D40LFR units 2901-2940 which were 2008 builds.

The first eight digits of the VIN code for TriMet's other New Flyer builds (please correct me if necessary):

1FYD2LK0 for units 2001-2022 (1997)

5FYD2LP0 for units 2201-2258 (1998) and 2259-2318 (1999)

5FYH2LR0 for units 2561-2562 (2001)

5FYD2LU0 for units 2601-2655 (2002) and 2701-2725 (2003)

5FYD4FV0 for units 2801-2839 (2005) and 2901-2940 (2008)

I have 5FYD2LL0 for the 2001 group. The 2901 group are 5FYD5FV0 (LFR model). Do the 2601 and 2701 groups have Series 50 engines?

No, only 2001-2022 do. 2601-2655 and 2701-2725 use Cummins ISL engines, while 2901-2940 use the improved version known as the ISL9.
