Lets keep the thread alive. I'll start by posting some of my shots of buses, trains, etc.

2009 NABI 45C.05 LFW "CompoBus"
LACMTA # 8384 at Van Nuys & Foothill ( Pacoima, Ca )
The bus body is made in Hungary. They are then shipped to the other NABI facility in Anniston, Alabama where the seats, powertrain, doors, and other components are put together. The buses are then driven from Alabama to California.

The 4100s/4200s are my favorite in the Miami Dade Transit fleet. I like how the DD Series 50EGR engine sound in these buses.

Glid!
Welcome back, buddy! I've missed you!

My guess is that the bus you're driving is the last one in that line....

I'm back doing the Number 7 so I often find myself here at Nanaimo Station. I'm inserting an older picture for a little bus eye-candy.

http://lh4.ggpht.com/_lJz0vhXy1Mg/S1hcxFTzXtI/AAAAAAAAAMc/7QXs4fSsEK0/s720/At_Nanaimo_Stn.jpg

Although it's not July when this picture was taken, it might as well be.... temperatures are regularly hitting 10+ celsius right now.... and that is wreaking havoc on the snow on Cypress Mountain for the Winter Olympics. Cherry blossoms are easily 8 weeks ahead and there's a magnolia tree that's ready to break into blossom too- and that shouldn't happen until mid-April!!!!

September 2009. A Type 82 EMU at Kuala Lumpur's Stesen Sentral in operation, but pulled by a diesel locomotive with what I suspect is a generator to supply electricity for the airconditioning. KTM seemed to cancel every second service.

Today, the City of Vancouver and Bombardier officially opened the "Olympic Line" between Olympic Village SkyTrain Station on the Canada Line and Granville Island.

Brussels was very kind to lend to us these to brand-new Bombardier Flexity trams. The city and Bombardier are trying to shame the regional transit authority, Translink, into funding these amazing trains I imagine. I rode on it during my spread earlier today (Jan 21st). Turns out it was being driven (Eastward) with a recently retired transit operator who chased me up and down Cambie Street on the 15 last Spring! Thanks for the great time, Gabe!

Here are a couple of my contributions. Origionally, I had sent these to my brother, who is very interested in mass transit, so I never thought they would end up here, but:
http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s170/ericjet503/SRtc.jpg
Santa Rosa Transit Center. Usually visited by four different agencies (Golden Gate Transit, Sonoma County Transit, VINE, and Santa Rosa CityBus) but, on a Wednesday afternoon, it is pretty slow.

http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s170/ericjet503/sonomacotrans.jpg
Sonoma County Transit. They have longer buses than this, but this one happened to pull into Santa Rosa Tranist Center as I was walking by. Hence the wierd angle.

http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s170/ericjet503/srcitybus.jpg
One of the new Santa Rosa CityBus buses. They have the short version and the long version. I like the paint scheme on these much better than the old boring blue and white. Yes, I was driving, so the oppotunity came quickly. Also, one of these was not at the transit center.

Two car N-Judah MUNI train near Parnassus. They are a bit like the old Type I MAX trains in Portland, but shorter.

http://mobil.abendblatt.de/hamburg/k...t.html?cid=hamburg-kommunales&li=1 (German only)

I don't have any pictures of my own, but I do have news on Hamburg's U-Bahn network. From this May until October, as part of Brückenschlag 2010, the viaduct on line U3 between Baumwall and Rödingsmarkt will be closed. The almost 100 year old viaduct will be torn down and replaced with a brandnew viaduct, with part of the track between the two stations changed, in order to reduce noise and make the turn less tight. The current viaduct is probably one of the tightest turns that exists in any subway/tube/metro/U-Bahn network in existence and it can only be passed with a vMax of 30 km/h (about 20 mph).

People may be instructed to switch to the S-Bahn if they wish to go from station Landungsbrücken to Central Station or to Rathaus (though from U3 station Rathaus, they have to go through the tunnel that connects station Rathaus with Jungfernstieg, station of lines U1, U2, S1, S2 and S3). This could have an impact on those heading to the Dom, as well as to the upcoming 2010 World Cup Fanfest at the Heiligengeistfeld. So, for those visiting Hamburg anytime soon and wanting to feel what I mean with the current viaduct between Baumwall and Rödingsmarkt on line U3, you have time until this May to experience that tight turn yourselves.  Wink

Now, the first trolleybus recognize I not, but second is most likely a Jelcz or older model of Ikarus. Seems like they operate a fleet of more or less "own" designs as well.

I thought I recognized an Ikarus as well, but supposedly all of these vehicles were build in the DPRK. I assume they bought or traded for the designs back in the COMECON days (though I don't believe they ever joined?)
