Here is a roster dated 4/61. As this document shows most New York systems I suspect it may be a fan or club created document.

When you compare it with the MaBSTOA roster of September 1962 (posted here elsewhere) its interesting to see what's gone from the former Surface Transit and Fifth Avenue Coach Lines Inc.fleets. By 9/62 the 740s, 4502s, 4505s, C50s, and the 5002 are gone, while 4506s and 4507s are down by over 100 each as are the Mack C45s.

MaBSTOA 9/62 roster for comparsion:

bill937ca,

Welcome aboard here at BusTalk - your input and contributions are very valuable to us.

However, your first contribution in the form of a 1961 Equipment in Service Roster for New York City public and private bus lines needs a little polishing as far as Green Bus Lines is concerned.

Taking it line by line, here are the actual facts;

100 to 119 1950 TDH 4509; never existed

151 to 160 1954 TDH 5104; actually 1959 TDH 5106's

200 to 210 1946 TDH 4506; actually #201 to 210 and had already gone to Jamaica Buses (note; #201 to 210 were originally purchased under the flag of Manhattan and Queens Bus Corporation Division

300 to 309 1947 TDH 4507; were actually 1949's numbered 301 to 310.

310 to 349 1950 TDH 4509; actually were 311 to 345 (with some of which already gone to Jamaica, Conestoga and Reading).

350 to 364 1954 TDH 5104; actually numbered 351 to 365

401 to 430 1960 TDH 5301; actually 401 to 420 were 1960's and 421 to 430 were 1961's

900 to 925 1946 TDH 4506; actually 901 to 925 and most had already gone to Jamaica Buses

926 to 959 1947 TDH 4507; actually 926 to 950 with many already gone to Jamaica Buses

Not on list;

951 1948 TDH 4507 ex New York City Transit Authority.

Note; Green Line never bought a bus starting with '0' - every order started with a '1'.

The errors in the Green Line report were glaring enough that I wonder if other listings in the rosters are also inaccurate (for instance; I see no ex Green Line Buses listed under Jamaica Buses!

Best regards,

Mr. Linsky - Green Bus Lines, Inc., Jamaica, New York

bill937ca,

As Lt. Colombo would say; 'just one more thing!';

Your Green Line list failed to mention (and so did I) 101 to 115 1954 TDH 4512's.

BTW; I'm also looking at both Queens/Nassau and Steinway because they don't ring true either.

Stay tuned.

Regards,

Mr. 'L'
