A few weeks ago when I was out in LI I boarded 1801 a brand new Orion VII NG CNG on the N23. When we got to Mineola the bus left as an N79. The run number in the bus was also 79xx.

I have rode the Xcelsior that the MTA is testing out and have been very impressed with the bus. Now I would love to ride a diesel one and see how they compare.
