1066 is now assigned to the S59 as of recently.....i was on my break btween runs at the smith haven mall and the 59 was there so we were reminiscing about the 99's and the new buses....he said they're junk...don't think cbs will be gettin any of em


So 1066 is 30ft then? If it is indeed an 30ft Orion VII, then i'll take away the Asterisk.

Maybe i wasn't seeing things when i thought i saw a Orion VII on the S68 Just now. Now i defiantly have to go out and try and catch it on its return To Center Moriches at 12:35, to see if i'm correct.

I con't think CBS will be getting the Orion VII's either.

I was told that the Orion VII's bottom out on hills. That works against some of CBS's routes, and if my understanding of the Entrance of the yard is correct, that goes against them to.

i was wrong 5016 was pulling duty on the S68, i guess it was going fast because there was no traffic, and some how misidentified it.

Saw 9651 twice today. even though i was hunting for it the first time.

1014 signs broken already, thats sucks. How did the sign look?

the Orion VII's are what we are reminiscing ........i know they're junk my ubncle drives for the MTA in nassau......i love the ORIONS and wish we could run those 99xx forever.....they're my favorite and the dispatchers know in the yard that any day i walk in ill have no probs gettin the orions even though most of the other drivers hate them...... the only orions i've ever had trouble with were 9906 (which used to be MYYYYYYY BUS i used to take that out everyday before they were strict on buses going out on routes)......i used to love 906 til it kept stalling out on me.....the only other one i had trouble with was 904's breaks.....other than that i love my 99xx and would drive em forever

forgive me when i say orions i mean 99xx lol not used to having new orions/.......CBS doesnt have any anyway lol

I'm going to take a guess and say that most drivers at CBS hate the 99xx Orions, simply because a majority of them prob drove before your time when the companies whole fleet was made up of mostly all Gilligs. (i say mostly because they did have a few Flex Metros)
