5909 LFS Artic on the Q44 & 668

Posted by Queens Surface 295 on Fri Jun 8 23:58:46 2012

Rode on Casey Stengel's oldest bus model in service, the 600s and rode the newest buses back which were the LFS Artics.

Still wants to go back to the MTA.

Surprised that on the way down, it would cut out at Main Street.

great shots. days are really numbered for those remaining 1996 orions. i drove them when new at yukon. actually drove only one. i believe it was 642 in 1996 from 57 and 7 to arthur kill road. hard seater on express route. some people shunned it. we laid over at quill in those days and someone brought it up there as a replacement. at that time quill was known as westside.

Nice shots! Where were the photos of 668 and 5909 taken?

Run #108, however, I would expect to be on the road until at least 10:30 PM or 11 PM.

On the Arctic Q44, does the rear sign flash "Limited"? Aren't those buses made by the same manufacturer of the new 80xx buses at Queens Village, whose rear signs don't flash "Limited" on the Q27Limited?

The signs on the 2011-2012 Nova Artics are the same as the signs from the 2009-2010 order: Luminator Horizon. They'll flash Limited on the back.

So why can't the 80xx's flash "limited' in the rear? Shouldn't all the sign systems have the same capabilities?
