OK and don't forget that SF MUNI 8350 Neoplan USA AN440A Transliner is now preserved according to Wikipedia. 

I didn't forget.

Yesterday's sightings...

You know "Mitsubishi Fuso 6512" is Bob Ambrose Jr. right? A.k.a. the former YouTube troll. I'd ignore him haha.

FYI both 7031 and 9120 were not auctioned. The auction pages were pulled off and Muni is now working on a plan to figure out how the historic fleet looks like moving forward. Both of them are still at the auction yard in Sacramento, however.

Strange to think that those are basically the same as Calgary's, despite looking so different.

Thank you very much, you helped me a lot. As far as I understand, the 2019 y. b. cars have not yet been entered service. Although, leafing through this topic on the forum, I somewhere came across a photo 2057 on the line.

Update on the trolleybus fleet. By mid-May the highest numbered New Flyer XT40 to enter service was 5836, which would mean only another 48 remain to be delivered and enter service.  Meanwhile the active ETI fleet was down to 65 shared as follows: Portrero 20 and Presidio 45.

At the present rate of  XT40 deliveries, the whole ETI fleet could be gone by about October.

How are the Trolleys holding up

ETIs are retiring rapidly. XT40s are coming in rapidly.
