#4513 at Charleston???????

Posted by caine515 on Fri Apr 20 14:06:56 2012

Spotted last week so if this is allready been mentioned sorry. Orion NG #4513 orignally assigned to GA was spotted on the S74 last week with Charleston stickers. Also(for DaRidgewood) Orion 3G #4120 was spotted on the B38 this week, now assigned at FP. Weird moves and can GA afford to lose the Orions??

That reminds me, I seen 3963 on the Q44 and 3964 on the 12, with Casey Stengel stickers. Wonder if these are loaners?

It's only 1 bus GA lost! I'm sure they can survive!

And 23 from 1997/98 for a total of 37 RTS' @ FP.

Not many in the grand scheme of things.

It may have something to do with the recall going on for the Orion 7 Hybrids. Things should return to normal after a few months.

I know it sucks. But at least it's official: 9155 is currently the oldest one-depot bus in the MTA. I'm not sure how long that's going to last though :(

I've seen some of them on Myrtle/Wyckoff. I think its very stupid for MTA to try to convert FP into a hybrid. It has more experience with the RTS than most other depots do. MTA sohuld try to convert 126st instead.

ENY, FLA, FP, UP, JA, and QV are the only ones to use them for 30 years.

I have not seen 4136 on any FP route. I saw 4135 and 4138 with FP logos though.

Because, as we all know, every group of buses, subway cars & vehicles in general has it's good ones that seem to outlast all the others like 6313 & 9178 did and there are those that are such lemons that they go first.
