MaBSTOA 15:

Appreciate your posting this; I see my recollections were correct, in regarding when the "First generation" Fishbowls were retired.

As you know, I began working in Lower Manhattan in 1979, and recall not seeing Fishbowls with the original "Art Deco" clearance lights running anywhere; your table confirms my memory was right (thanks!)

I think (but am not sure) that NJT retired their ex-PSNJ "first generation" Fishbowls very early in the game (sometime around 1981, or thereabouts)

Again, thank for posting some interesting historical items...... Wink

Interesting that only 132 of the 255 buses of the 1963 order of MaBSTOA buses were in operation by this point; I seem to recall they disappeared from the roads around 1977. But the 1961, 1962 and 1963 TA's all seemed to come back from the dead in 1981 when the Grummans were sidelined for the first but not the last time. (In Manhattan, that is; the 1964 and '65 Flxies remained on the road in the outer boroughs, the latter till about 1983 or '84.)
