  3. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

  4. Today
  5. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Apologies for the slight diversion off topic, but I liked the speedline logo better than the coin.
  6. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Reminds me of now retired Flxible 6201, which had the current logo on the front and the old speedline logo on the sides and back.
  7. Yesterday
  8. Pace 35th Anniversary Legacy Fleet

    6360 is still not wrapped. I would like it wrapped by the end of June, and hope to get videos of it.
  9. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    CTA probably keeps old programs in case they are needed on off schedule put ins. For example, route 21 used to only run to 54th/Cermak because of route 25, which doesn't exist anymore. Even if the 21 now goes all the way to N. Riverside, however, I've seen short turn buses that terminate at 54th/Cermak and they still kept the old program on the NFs.

    I thought that you took a ride video on that bus, but it shows the bus leaving the station.
  11. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Correct. I never noticed that until i was looking at the video. That is very rare to see.
  12. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Ah, the rear of the bus has the old logo and the front of the bus has the current logo
  13. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    90N doesn’t exist anymore some of the 8325’a are programmed wrong (ex: 8347 was working 56 and it said 56 Milwaukee To Western Blue Line)
  14. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    A few weeks ago I saw a 83xx laying over at 87th and Damen (working #95). It appeared the route sign was a 90N. I thought that problem was solved some time ago.

    I’ll give an example I saw recently to clear things up. Hope this helps. First are the two claims. 1. In a married pair train set on the L, the even numbered car is the higher numbered car. ✅ Yes, that is true. Like 3457-3458 and 3201-3202 for example. 2. In service, even numbered cars always face one direction and odd numbered cars face another direction. ❌ This is false. While driving on the Kennedy I saw an eight car set of 2600s heading towards Forest Park. Some of the leading cars in the set were even numbered cars and some of the cars were odd numbered cars. This probably happened as a result of cars moving around the system over the years, and what the train did when it reached the end of the line. For example, at O’Hare, to change directions, the train operator must leave the cab at the front of the train and go to the cab at the rear of the train, turning that cab the new front of the train, where at Forest Park, he or she also has the option of looping around the yard and returning to the station without changing cabs.

    Oh. I premiered it because i didn't feel like uploaded it today as i might forget.

    “But unfortunately a certain individual gets upset when they get put in their place 🤷‍♂️. This is a forum and we always learn from each other. It's not a place to be full of pride in always being right.” 😂😂^Yea ooookkkkk I’m upset? Yea your definitely correct
  18. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    I'm excited to see this video of your bus but the problem is that you made a premiere and I will be gone at noon making videos of Pace Buses. I may come back home around 2:00 PM.
  19. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    No not really, most novas are out during the weekdays.....
  20. 5000-series - Updates

    That's a good point. That's why I wanted to generally clarify the concept of the car numbers. But unfortunately a certain individual gets upset when they get put in their place 🤷‍♂️. This is a forum and we always learn from each other. It's not a place to be full of pride in always being right. Stop yelling lol at least you learned something
  21. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Heres 6759 on the 76. I uploaded these three because this bus is a rare catch for a old novabus. Can you see why i said that?
  22. 5000-series - Updates

    My theory is that the orientation is off? The odd number train car might not always be first in the direction of travel, leading to the confusion?
  23. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    There’s 7902 on #66
  24. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Tomorrow I might go out and catch either 7902 8011 or 8142 and take a picture of inside look of the new screens so as far as I know if 8011 was the test bus and it all went well that means 8142 was the second bus to get it and then 7902 so in conclusion soon probably within the near future of 2019 all 7900’s 8325’s will have the new screens and probably the Porterras to

    Mated pairs don't get switched on a daily basis. In fact, they only are ever separated when one car is damaged and either goes for repair or scrap. If scrap, the leftover car can be mated with another car, but only if it's the opposite to the original. Example: 2635 (odd-numbered "A" car) is semi-permantly mated with 2636 (even-numbered "B" car). 2827 (odd-numbered "A" car) is semi-permantly mated with 2828 (even-numbered "B" car). 2636 is leading a train and strikes 2827, damaging both cars. The spares, 2635 and 2828, A and B cars, respectively, can be mated. Potentially, 5148 and 5149 could be mated, but that would mean 5147 and 5150 were taken out of service, and that's been proven wrong already.
  26. 5000-series - Updates

    End Of Argument of car numbers!!!!!
  27. 5000-series - Updates

    I caught 5150 to and I can confirm that ajm522 is correct it is paired with 5149
