Nice! Did you see any older C40LFs as well?

How of them many did you see today? I am hoping to catch a couple of videos of them before the entire fleet
of old C40LF's gets fully retired.

A ruff estimate of about maybe 15 - 20 of them, then like 2 more on the B8.

Damn so that means I have to catch some videos of those buses very soon. Also, are the Orion V CNGs completely
gone from Jackie Gleason now too?

Those Orion V's were always the best to be on (4 me at least). But aren't the old C40's getting transferred to either the bronx or queens? Nice shots btw

with College Point Depot and Spring Creek Depot soon to receive the Orion VII 3G CNG's, i doubt any of the old C40LF's would be transferred to MTA Bus. But they are definitely being transferred to West Farms Depot. #801 was the only exception as it was originally a training bus when it was under MTA Bus, and somehow managed to stay at College Point Depot in revenue service until it's tanks expired.

Yeah I remember the Orion V CNGs on the B68, the sound from them was really incredible.

Not all of them are being transferred there though. I think the move is temp since those Orion VII CNG's are going in for overhauls.
