1000-series D40LF - Updates

Recommended Posts

I rode 1078 on the #7 and its paint is looking a tad weathered on the right side.

"Whatcha talkin' about Jajaun?!" xD Just kidding! There have been a bunch of them getting paint jobs at the shop while some got wrapped.

Hey hey, while checking out Loop Link I spotted #800 which now has the LED interior lights. Didn't look like it was repainted but I think those just get the lighting upgrade.

Then my eyes weren't playing tricks on me when I saw #806 on #157 with what looked to be the new LEDs.

I took a look at #805, it's doesn't yet have the new interior lights. I did swing over to the #21 and took a trip on #800, the bus was clean and it appeared to have the seats updated, a few longitudinal seats weren't changed around the door area, but i guess it passes inspection.

Strange #803 has an updated clever device, but they never changed the interior lights.

#804 Is the same as #803.

#807 and #808 don't have the updated lights either. It just seems like #800 and #806 has it. I still have yet to see #802 though.

1553 is on the road again.  I actually eyeballed it yesterday.   It looks as if the front end may have been rebuilt.

 

Thanks for the update!!! I'll change it's status from retired to active. That leaves #1305 as a lone duck in the yard.

Here's a few shots of #1553. I didn't really notice nothing odd about it just it has no ad frames or ad signage at all.

Now why would they do this???

Not sure what you mean by "this." Pace used to send buses to Adelman's, but their business seems to have been hurt after the owner was arrested.

On the other hand, I don't know why the route sign isn't working.

In the best case scenario, the route sign is just turned off for some reason.

In the worst case scenario, the entire sign is missing from the bus.

I can't tell 100%, but I'm leaning towards the latter since the black frame around the sign looks like it's also missing.

By "this", he means the entire rear route number box is missing from the bus.

I'm sitting here saying, "How did he missed that?". xD 

I noted that the sign was not working.

But I still need

It also took me 10 minutes to find how to rotate WordArt. The rotate handle was not on that object.

And this is why D40LFs will not be retiring anytime soon.  I don't know why some are trying to start rumors.
