Well then people *sighs*. Basically, this Tumblr is essentially a brother blog to my counterpart SILVERPLAQUEVII (Follow my counterpart as well).

As of now, this Tumblr is officially part of TTCOrionVII8100's Transit Archives.

It is exclusively about public transportation and shit like that. So blah blah blah, enjoy :)

The Drawing of the 2011 New Flyer C40LF built into MTA NYC specs.
New Flyer ceased the older LF models in 2009 with the orders built into 2010 (YRT ordered the last 20 that same year numbered #1001-#1019, some went to HSR due to the Ontario HST shit took effect in July). The contract for this order was awarded in July 2010 for a base order of 135 buses; 90 for New York City Transit and 45 for MTA Bus. Options in the contract are available for 285 buses for New York City Transit, 225 buses for MTA Bus, and 100 buses for assignments unknown at this time, for a total of 610 buses. However, both MTA and New Flyer have settled for the older models built in 2011 and 2012 (they refused to have C40LFRs) and some XD40s that same year. Thanks to those guys, MTA paid up some extra money to New Flyer for these.
Otherwise, people in Ontario are thinking “where’s my 2011 D40LFs?” (Metrolinx agencies deserves the Xcelsiors)
