Feature Photo Submissions

Recommended Posts

As the Series 50s begin to dwindle in numbers, there have been less and less of them doing school and express runs, which have now been more dominant with newer diesel and CNG novas (for the most part). By summer of next year, there's a chance that they may never hit the road again. Here's a shot of Calgary Transit 7638 at Edgebrook Rise Terminal doing a school trip on the Route 796 Tom Baines - Edgemont.

Calgary Transit's 2012 New Flyer XN40 long term demos; 8201 and 8202 were just recently wrapped in the red wave livery in October 2019 just like the NovaBus LFS CNG buses were one year prior.  For some undetermined reason, these buses were rushed through the decalling process and as a result there is some work that still needs to be done to both vehicles.  Here is 8202 arriving at the 6 Ave and 11 Street SW layover spot while completing a trip on Route 65 Downtown West.

If there were themes for feature photo submissions, this post's would be the blowing winds of change...

First, we have brand new 2019 XE60 4950 traveling down Lexington Avenue at 68th Street about to pass under the Hunter College skybridges on a driver training run. The MTA has three of its 15 XE60s on property and while they've yet to see passenger service, they're earmarked for M14 SBS service on the new highly popular 14th Street busway.

Also the MTA began a large fleet swap this Wednesday with Coney Island's R160s being transferred to Jamaica and Jamaica's R46s transferred to Coney Island to support the coming implementation of Communications Based Train Control (CBTC) on the Queens Blvd Line.  As it stands now, two R46 sets have been in regular service at Coney Island on the G, N and W lines this week. Seen here are two R46 N trains at 30th Avenue in Astoria, Queens and 8th Avenue in Brooklyn's Chinatown respectively.

(I had a very hard time trying to choose between the two images so I'll let the mods pick lol)
