MabSTOA 15:

As Your's Truly is currently (still) on dial-up (for a number of reasons) I cannot watch this video; however, if YOU found it, it HAS to be MORE than worthwhile to watch!!!!! Wink

ANY video where you can catch even a glimpse of a FACCo. New Look is truly a RARE and ELUSIVE prize, indeed! Very Happy

"NYO"

3111 - the first of the second batch of FACL Fishbowls, first put into service November 1960. Notice that the Transign front roll signs are arranged a bit differently than those on the first set - the SB terminus shown as "Washington Square" as opposed to the prior "Wash. Square."

Brand new, the only Fishbowl in the scene, every other bus in service were all Old Looks.
There was another episode where #20 was shot. It may have been Fifth Ave. 20 rather than TA # 20.

There was only 1-10 in FACL's bus roster, if Fishbowls are what you're talking about. Those were the A/C's.

Thanks for reminding me W.B., there were only 1-10, not up to 20. Those ten A/C's were later renumbered to 3211-3220 under MABSTOA. The episode I was referring to was most likely then TA # 20 featured. Been several decades since I last seen that.
