PostForum: New York City Buses   Posted: Mon Dec 17, 2018 10:10 pm   Subject: 2018 Artic renumberings
Can anybody figure out what renumberings have happened to the remaining "old" 5500-5600 artics? I have found two conflicting versions:

4 of 5512-5530 to 100-103 or 6 to 1175-1181???

Thanks a bunch for the roster. I have just a couple of things. As another poster noted that Grumman Flxible 870 #544-549 were bought second-hand. GBL original 870s were #550-589.

Also the '79 ...

Most ex-CSL buses were gone by 1963 at the latest. Twin 44S's, Brills and Whites all went about the same time. CMC diesels lasted a bit longer, 4506's until 1966, 4507's until 1969 (thanks to route 16 ...

Never heard CTA 9763 was a HPO! It definitely was a motor bus, as the 58DW model shows. There is a photo of it at the South Suburban Safeway lines garage in Harvey being used as a demo while still a g ...

CTA Nabi artics are not BRT-style like LA's, but the "ordinary" lowfloor styling. Las far as I know, the argument between NABI and CTA has never been solved. The buses are rotting in storage ...

Not quite... Only one 300 was ever "refurbished" - 301. What you see is a wreck rebuild using 5307 parts. Note the plate has "GMC" now. Also note that even though we are talking mi ...

This bus was a very poorly thought out deal, but given we are talking 1917, maybe not so. The body is by St Louis Car, one of 50 (101-150). The engine compartment/cab is detachable from the body, and ...
