Well, the 1974, 1975 and 1977 53102-6-1's of Flxibles would still have been king of the 'hood back then (plus, presumably, the five 53102-8-1's from the 1977 bunch); as well as the old standby TDH-530 ...

An interesting New Look, #3000 of the NYPD

Awesome. I saw this bus a few times. Originally, it was white with black stripe which were NYTPD colors at the time. While it looked like a TA/OA T6H- ...

At this point, my guess is is that the oldest NYCTA depots are: East New York, Jamaica, Fresh Pond, Castleton and 126th Street. At MTAB, all are at least somewhat old except College Point.

Here's one. Truth-be-told, all PRTC buses have just one door, but this bus does have a suburban interior.

Sounds like your bus is one of the rare one-door transits. These buses were simply a cross between a suburban and transit as it had features of both. My understading is that all bona fide GMC new lo ...

That TTC paint scheme looks good on all those Orions.

I don't those buses were retired whil ...
