I was in Midtown yesterday afternoon, when I spotted NYCT 3813 (Orion VII HEV Next Generation) working the M16 EB on W. 34th St. @ 7th Avenue.
The brand new unit was carrying MJQ depot logos, and looked quite sharp.
Clearly this is the beginning of something big for the Manhattan Division.

This order is huge (850 units) and will have buses going to most depots. 3813 and 3817 are spending time at MJ Quill to get the B/Os (and mechanics) there trained.

Here is 3817 parked outside of Quill depot. Eventually these two will make their back to Staten Island.
