  1. Yikes already one down ?? Was it hanging out with one of the CTA New flyers ?? lol 😝🤪 Dave
  2. uhhh you sure about that ?? When I lived there i saw these running Dave
  3. WOW !! Very interesting that AC trans got double deckers !!. Are they Van Hools ?? I remember when living in SF bay area a story were there was some "chicago'ish activities" going on between Van Hool and top level characters at AC transit leading them to ONLY purchase Van Hool vehicles and no other manufactures ?? I think once the "Dirty Closest" door was opened of all those shenanigans. It lead to GIllig and other companies >fairly< able to bid on Alameda county contracts ?? Dave
  4. WOW New Flyer @ Pace times 'are a changing 🤪 Look forward to riding these next time i'm in town and hopefully NW gets some cause i'm never in the area that West division serves. On a side note. I sure do miss the Orion 1's, Those were my "Childhood" buses
  5. Probably "Social Distancing" at the factory with skeleton crew😝 ?? But wild guess, Things probably getting "Complicated" since parent company is from China ?? Dave
  6. You can thank all xmas eBay/Amazon/Online ordering for those extra shifts @ UPS and the same. It ALL trickles down to everyone. Including our fellow bus drivers
  7. I agree new 7000 series front/end caps look A LOT like the 2400 series lol
  8. OT. Looking at those front wheels on the Bluebird School bus, I can tell its OLD !!! Brings back grade school memories from the 90's lol
  9. Legal hold=LONG LONG LONG while !!!
  10. Just curious are there ANY Orion 1's left ?? I saw a thread last year with 2378 covered in snow @ South holland garage
  11. Your best bet is to try facebook marketplace or ebay for a used motorola radio or scanner I believe Motorola is what they use ? since its a local company (schaumburg) ??
  12. That bad boy is almost 50 years old lol !!! If it made it this far and seeing how METRA is scouting/purchasing 2nd hand locos due to so called "lack of funds" and increase service, It would make more sense just to keep it and rebuild it ?? Another vote for nostalgi purposes since it will be the ONLY in-service operating F40C left in the US !!! Just my 2 honest abe's
  13. Ya that sucks. Luckily I don't have to worry about any old NABI junk in my area
  14. I agree that's a mega-diesel !! Never thought we'd see 6 axle locomotives again on Metra lines lol Is METRA planning to run 8-15 car consists lol ??? Here's a "Preview" of what's to come lol
