What was the third historical bus that was going to be auctioned? According to the news source, three were going to be sold, and I've deduced that two were the E60 and D60.

5300 on the Exhibition Trolleybus Route (Taken 9/8/2018)

Heritage Weekend is on September 7th & 8th. 

I remember riding these when they were in service. Acceleration with a real kick - no modern electronics, just traditional contactor control. I was visiting and remember some local teenagers commenting on their "take-off" and how they were faster starters than most sports cars. "Please hold on" would have been really useful on these 🙂

5300 is very fun to ride on! That hill boost button is no joke.

I mean you don't really have to post every photo you take on here. That's actually what drove me away from this thread.

Ironically the Phantom 2840 never left Muni despite what I was told. 9120 & 7031 are still sitting in Sacramento.... thousands of dollars wasted in auction storage fees for the last few months.
