Gwinnett G006

Gwinnett G006 never returned to Gwinnett County after rebuild. It was retained by Orion and rebuilt, and used as a engineering bus. They then sold the bus to BWAT. I have edited the BWAT page accordingly. Silly Tilley

NFTA > Poughkeepsie Transit bus

Thanks for updating the information on which NFTA bus ended up as Poughkeepsie Transit #277.

Have been wondering for about a year if it'd be known. 15:05, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Capitalization in sections.

Just to note, I've watched you change a number of edits in articles I have edited, notably in changing the capitalization of sections.

If you can please refer to the Toronto Transit Commission, sections are capitalized with the first word only, unless a name such as "Toronto Transit Commission" is used.

This is standard procedure in most wikis.

Thanks! 12:45, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Leap Transit

I just wanted to let you know that Leap Transit only had four buses. There was no 005. I'm thinking 001 might have had a license change from 98115S1 to 59805P1 since the current plate on it is 59805P1, but I know for sure they only had four units (I saw all four in person). I don't want to undo your revision since you added more VINs, but could you fix the revision?


NFTA 1501-1520, 1601-1624

Hi Cappy,

I've noticed that you've been able to provide VIN #'s to the NFTA rosters based off of the license plate numbers that I've provided.

I've update four plate numbers (two or each series) in their respective roster listings.

Can you please help out, if possible, and fill in the blanks?

I've tried doing Auto-Check, but they're not providing the VIN's anymore when I punch in the plates.

Works now. Must have been a glitch. Thanks!! (talk) 18:30, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

New York City area template

Would you be interested in creating something like this, but for the New York City area? I'd start it, but I'm not sure of what agencies would be included or if there is anything analogous to the Ontario example. --A. Badaraco (talk) 23:36, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

1021 & The other unit are very hard buses to capture (especially now more xcelsiors are up), since that won't suffice This is the best I can do. Nassau Inter-County Express 1021-b.jpg

As for 1636 that bus was barely in service under nice, there are only a few crappy cell phone shots I was offered but turned down. Besides practically was the same as the others just a different engine. --Deandremouse (talk) 23:06, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

The information and pictures of the bus shown in that Auctions International page pertains to the now-retired Long Beach Bus 173, which is a Gillig Phantom. One indication that this was bus 173 is to look at the scratch next to the rear right wheelwell in the photo on the auction page (you'll have to zoom in to see that) and compare it to this photo (taken by Gerard Donnelly), which has the same matching scratch in the same area. I don't know why this bus bears the number 172 on the rear when there's already a Long Beach Bus 172, a Gillig BRT, that has been in operation since 2014. However, you coming across an auction page of a former Long Beach Bus supposedly numbered "172," a Gillig Phantom with a 2004-model VIN and the latest license plate ID starting with AJ7, and then coming to the wiki to mark the current Long Beach Bus 172, a Gillig BRT with a 2014-model VIN and the latest license plate ID starting with AF4, as "retired" shows that you were not paying attention with all of the information right in front of you. The next time you edit a page to mark any bus down as "retired" after seeing it on an auction site, don't just take note of the bus number but also the bus make and model name (if it's listed correctly on the site) or body model, the VIN (if it's listed in a wiki page), and the license plate (if it's still attached to the bus by the time it's placed on auction and is listed in a wiki page). --Cappy (talk) 21:36, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
