  1. You mean an F40 or an F59?
  2. Managed to snag a shot. Pretty bad but it serves its purpose. Route 8A at 95th.
  3. This isn't related to assignments, but I just saw 7914 on the 8, and the rear destination sign displayed "STOP" text when the bus braked. Is this a new feature? I haven't noticed it before. Unfortunately I was unable to grab a shot of it.
  4. The grey parts are primer, the paint job isn't yet complete. Don't know why it left the shop early.
  5. I see everyone else already posted their shots, but here are mine anyway! Also, thanks to guy who gave me this Pulse drawstring backpack! I do like the purple theme featured on both the interior and exterior of the buses. Also, the Nortran Legacy Fleet bus made an appearance at Golf Mill, running the 208. And if anyone is wondering about the artics at Jefferson Park, they were blue line shuttles, as service was suspended between there and Harlem.
  6. Yes, if they're numbered in order it should be the Amtrak 456.
  7. As a follow-up to @richii0909's post...

    Create a "More Proposed Bus Moves" thread.
  9. What did you find that could break off?
  10. Those are 35 footers if I'm not mistaken. Love the livery on those things.

    Kind of disappointing if it's true that Kedzie won't be seeing any Novas anytime soon, but at least that brand new bus is actually being used again. Wonder what's up with it doing that single Harrison run awhile back. Side note, coincidentally 8342 is the only one I've ridden since these buses were put into service.
  12. There is now a discord server for everyone "Transit-Oriented". On here everyone can be in a live group chat and/or call talking about transit or be part of live multiplayer bus and train simulation gameplay, including OMSI 2 and Train Simulator 2019. You can also share your photography, art, or just talk about transit in general. Help us bring all the Chicagoland railfans together! Join at: https://discord.gg/x9CHMRT

    More Bus Moves

    @NewFlyerMCI @Mr.cta85 I found them... I managed to catch the accountant for Speedy Gonzales Landscaping and he said the owners were planning to sell them for scrap. Maybe I'll try and speak to the owners themselves at some point.
  15. 6669 on the 307 just a few minutes ago. Southbound at Burlington Street.

    Wonder if those Flxibles in the SS junkyard are salvageable for restoration. Probably not, as they're labeled scrap.
  17. Yeah, the 4051-4056 were probably the D40LF replacements. Thanks for the info!

    Not sure how related or relevant this is, but I saw an artic from Kedzie operating the 62 Archer on two separate occasions last week. I have photos but they aren't handy right now. I'll send them at some point.
  19. That's where I've been checking, and both the Active and Retired lists say "as of 2016". I was wondering if anyone here had a more recent list or is in the Kenosha region often enough to know the roster.
  20. Anyone know if Kenosha still rosters anything other than Gillig LFs? I know they have a history of purchasing interesting secondhand stuff from several transit agencies, including nearby Milwaukee. The most up-to-date roster I can find is Wikipedia's, which says they have former 1995/1997 D40LFs (five are active) bought off Milwaukee and Oshkosh, but it hasn't been updated since 2016. Are these still in service or has Kenosha completely gone Gillig? Also, some interesting stuff from their past fleet includes former Waueksha Gillig Phantoms, Chemung County Nova LFSs, and Oshkosh Flxibles.
  21. There's an order for 30/35ft Xcelsiors? From what I've read here there were two orders, one for 75 40ft buses from NFI (to replace NABIs) and one for 164 30ft buses from El Dorado (to replace some of the 2600s).
  22. Ah, misread that. @Mr.NewFlyer1051 my bad.
  23. Do we know whether or not the 30-footers will have rear doors? And also when exactly these orders (for NFI and El Dorado) were placed and/or are expected to be fulfilled?
