    More Bus Moves

    So I asume 4333 is totaled and will not see it again.
  3. Looking to aquire a 1966 or 1967 MCTS GMC New look bus for Restoration.
  4. AS of april 15 2014 4418 is still sitting on Track 1 and KK
  5. New 5500's buses now in service at MCTS saw 5503 on RT 28 tonite
  6. 4418 has been sitting on track 1 for months now the only 4400 at KK it is being partted out it looks like.Don't know why it is not up for sale
  7. looks like the County may take over running MCTS making the drivers County employee's
  8. I still have a VHS Tape of the news braodcast that night it happened.
  9. Some more info.. 5318 no longer has the Hanover sing in it it has been changed to a luminater sign just like the other 5300's have. KK no longer has any 4400's. And now some 4600's are being sent to FDL. The main problem with the 5400's is the interlock system With some buses having to be shut off and restated to get the bus to move after making a pickup. I have Driven 5405 and 5412 and had no problem with the bus I like the 5400's
  10. seems there are no 5400's being assinged to any rt's this weekend
