Feature Photo Submissions

Recommended Posts

I think the cover photo of next week should commemorate the last bus(es) inside the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel.

Friday, March 22nd, marked the last day for buses in the  Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel. This was done to accommodate future Link LRT extension as well as redevelopment around the former site of Convention Place Station.

Seen here is Pioneer Square Station during the evening rush of August 7, 2016.

This weekend is the final weekend for the remaining New Flyer "Galaxy" D60HFs at MTA New York City Bus. They had a 23 year reign in New York starting with the first batch in 1996. 5659, a 2003 unit, loads here at the first stop on the Bx2 in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx.

CMBC D60LF 8081 pulls away from Metrotown Station as a route 49.  The arrival of the 2018 XDE60 order has resulted in the retirement of the majority of the D60LF's, with the remaining buses due to be retired within a month as more new buses come in.

LACMTA 11038 at Los Cerritos Center, serving line 130 on January 15th, 2019. LA Metro is among the last American transit agencies to operate the Orion VI in regular service; these vehicles are contracted to MV Transportation for use on lines 125, 128, 130, 205, and 232. Metro's Orions have been plagued with the little to no maintenance work for most of their entire service lives, effectively making these buses guaranteed a risk of engine fire.

Unit 11034 has been recently involved in an engine fire yesterday morning, after 11062 had a similar fate not too long ago; as a result, these Orion VI buses are about to be replaced very soon by new ENC Axess buses.

Following multiple recent Gillig BRT deliveries, a few 2003 Gillig Low Floor buses remain at SMART as their oldest buses. Pictured is unit 23357, one of the remaining units in active service as of April 2019.

I'm probably just jelly cause my OC Nova wasn't used, but how does a photo that was not posted on this thread make the photo of the week?

I'm guessing a personal message with an admin.

Did 7575 have the TRUMP still in it?
