Kowloon Motor Bus

Just wondering if you are planning on adding retired buses to the roster? D40LF 06:49, 26 July 2007 (PDT)

I don't have the retired bus info, but Im sure you and other members may. Feel free to add that section if you want. A. Badaraco 21:25, 26 July 2007 (PDT)
You bet I do. I have a couple of books on the history of Hong Kong buses, KMB and CMB, that cover the history from inception to the early 1990's. This includes an almost complete roster. D40LF 21:35, 26 July 2007 (PDT)

I think we may need to split the KMB roster into seperate pages. For example one main page that gives details on KMB, then seperate pages for Current Single Deckers, Current Double Deckers, Retired SIngle Deckers, and Retired Double Deckers. Just a thought but the page is getting a bit too long. By the way I started adding retired buses, just added the old L series single deckers that I used to love to ride back in the early 1980's. D40LF 11:55, 27 January 2008 (PST)

To see what it looks like I moved the retired single deckers to its own page, then split that into non A/C and A/C buses. Please let me know what you think. If you want to split the current fleet you, or someone with a bit more knowledge on the current fleet, would need to do it as I am not 100% sure which ones are single deck or double deck. D40LF 12:28, 27 January 2008 (PST)
I thought about that for the retired buses, one single page, but then there are thousands of retired buses. I've started to include the early buses, that never received a fleet number, and there are a lot of those. Maybe for the current fleet it can be kept on one page, but split into two tables so that people would know which is a single decker and which is a double decker. I know I would like to know!

Hi Adrian, I'm just wondering about the source for a few of your recent edits, particularly the Dennis Dragons having Voith D863.2 transmissions. Currently I'm basing my edits from this website right here:

Note I'm slowly trying to update some of the fleet rosters as well, but since I noticed you're dealing with the HF section, could you please move AL1, AD1, all Leylands (aside from ones for training), all Dragons up to AD190 (although some are kept for training which I'll take care of), all Volvo Olympians up to AV89 to the retired section? Thanks! vb5215 17:31, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

It seems the DIWA.2 transmissions were used with the L10 engine and other Euro I engines, but if you find verifiable sources, feel free to edit accordingly. Also might be best if you deal with the retired HFs too since I'm not as familiar with the fleet.

Guelph Transit Paratransit community bus roster

Thanks for doing The Guelph Transit Commission Paratransit/Community bus roster. I didn`t do the roster and i didn`t know it was like this. Thanks again Orion 4 01:05, 27, April 2009(PDT)

No problem! A. Badaraco 18:05, 27 April 2009 (PDT)

New Flyer Industries D60LF

Actually, New Flyer did produce D60LFs with EPA 2004 Caterpillar C9 engines. The sole operator of such model in North America is King County Metro Transit in Seattle, who has D60LFs built in 2004 with Caterpillar C9s. ABQ RIDE 15:34, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the correction! A. Badaraco 13:44, 1 July 2009 (PDT)

Sarnia Transit

Hey go a head and replace those pics lol. They are kinda out of date but Nice pics and nice ugly 071 lol A. Aikman 8:25PM, 22 August 2010 (PDT)

Thanks. I've kept your photos too in a complimentary link or in the individual series pages.--A. Badaraco 00:35, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Altoona Testing

Sorry should have checked more closely for the non-demonstrators, just thought Demonstrators/engineering units" would apply to units tested regardless if they are "normal service" units or not. However, I accessed the reports via a public link so I do not see how I/public would not have permission to access. [1] under "Bus database".--Alang2 02:14, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Usually we list a bus under demonstrators if they are owned by the manufacturer. If they are leased from an agency or used before delivery to an agency they are better suited listed on the agency page. I remember there used to be a disclaimer on the Altoona site, but it doesn't seem to appear anymore. I guess I'll look into it further and get back to you.--A. Badaraco 23:30, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Winnipeg Transit

Edited Winnipeg Transit, just moving the 800s to retired, and properly adding photos with appropriate suffix and such. Could you cross-check my editing just in case? I used a GRT terminal station page as a base for my new terminal addition RT - Balmoral Station (former Greyhound terminal), but I need a second opinion. - armorand, 2:24am CST, 16 August 2012

PS. What am I allowed to do on my own user page? I just put up a greeting and a 750px of a 1998 D40LF I took last night!

You also need to make sure your photos meet the basic quality standards: un-obstructed, in focus, and properly lit. Also you need to avoid "fluff" in your writing and avoid personal opinions. You also need to learn better formatting. Take a really good look at the TTC, YRT, and GO Transit pages to see how to properly structure articles and how they should be written.--A. Badaraco 02:37, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

confused about this 510 Spadina section

In the last sentence you added: "At the Union Station loop, the operator cannot the rear of an ALRV around the curve."

Something seems missing here...

Looks like "see"

STM Nova Bus LFS hybrid buses?

I saw that on a recent edit on STM's page, I saw that you erased the new orders for the 203 LFS HEV. Did they actually cancel it, or did the defer it? It would sound pretty bad if the cancel all 203 orders. --I hid the section because other than the one reference, I couldn't find any others. If you know for sure how many they're getting, please feel free to add it.--A. Badaraco 01:42, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Renumbered fleet

Hello, A. Badaraco. I was wondering what your reason was for changing the color of the renumbered fleet sections from the black background with white text to a grey background with black text. I personally feel it is easier to distinguish renumbered fleet with the black background and white text, due to it being a reverse color style. By the way, I cannot find you on CPTDB. What is your profile name on there?

Thank you,

Detroit Diesel 6V92TA.

From a graphic standpoint, I felt black was too distracting. I thought the light grey was a better fit. However if you feel it's not distinguishing enough, perhaps a darker grey could be used with white text instead? I'm open to changes.--A. Badaraco 19:05, 22 March 2015 (UTC) (ADB on CPTDB)

I guess a darker grey would be fine. The only problem with the grey is on certain pages that have an "all time roster" section. Some of those have grey backgrounds for retired fleet sections to distinguish the active and retired fleet. I am willing to compromise though.

Thanks again,

Detroit Diesel 6V92TA.

Perhaps you can bring it up on the board to see what others think. --A. Badaraco 01:46, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Adrian, the photo you uploaded is one of 529, not 530. vb5215 23:53, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

New York City area template

I'll see what I can do to make such a template equal to the GGH and others covering a regional or metropolitan area.

Sounds good --A. Badaraco (talk) 00:19, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
