I wonder how do they do on the highway.

They have 6-speed transmissions and the Cummins Westport ISL G actually has good climbing power.

I prefer the previous 494, that ran for Command Bus, which was actually Ex - NYBS # 1359, 1974 GMC / T6H5308A-0207.

Nice catch! Was this the only one you saw? Because tonight during the PM rush, there was a LOT of these new C40s on the 103. SC must have at least like 10 of them.

I spotted 497 on the Junction short turn B103. I agree, it seems like over night they are all over the SC routes.
