[USA] Photos from my Travels - LA

Postby Irisbus Rider » Wed Oct 31, 2012 1:00 am

I travelled over to the States approx 4 months ago, and haven't downloaded the images off my camera until recently.

Here are a couple of snaps I took whilst over there, although, I didn't take as many photos as I would have like to, purely because of the different level of security (and paranoia) they have over there.

I'll begin with 10 images from L.A. Please forgive my lack of captioning, especially with vehicle ID, it's all the same to me over there!

Firstly;
Image
7102 is a NABI 40-LFW, powered by CNG operating for the LACMTA. It is seen here wearing the Metro Rapid livery operating a 770 on Grand Av.




Image
In the same spot, we see another CNG NABI 40-LFW, 7770, this time, in the Metro Local livery. Note the spanish ad on the bus!




Image
8376 is a CNG NABI Metro 45C operating Silver Line services wearing the Silver Line livery, matching rather well with the Walt Disney Concert Hall as a backdrop.




Image
In the same spot, we wee a high floor, a CNG New Flyer Industries C40HF operating a Local service.




Image
In the same spot again, 3123, a CNG NABI 31-LFW passes by, followed by 7771, a CNG NABI 40-LFW, both advertising the introduction of new schedules on their destinations, which then scrolled to display the standard destination. Clever utilization!




Image
An LAFD truck. Quite a spectacle.




Image
Another LAFD right behind.




Image
7753, a NABI CNG 40-LFW seen on W 1st St.




Image
7485, another CNG NABI 40-LFW, this time seen on S Hill St.



Lastly,
Image
8466, a NABI Metro 45 in the Metro Local livery is seen here, also on S Hill St. This style of body is quite attractive in the flesh, it's the first bus I've seen with a skinny waist and hips, haha.

I hope you've enjoyed these images from the USA, I will post more from other cities at a later date.

Thanks for viewing!

Did you have any problems taking bus photos in Los Angeles?

Oops something went wrong; my posting was meant for the "bus enthusiasts" thread!

What do the numbers in the windows mean? (i.e 8466 has "29" in the bottom left windscreen)

Great photos though!

Thanks,

Those are the run numbers - much like the run plates with the STA.

I like the desto in the last pic advising of new schedules...

Well, I can see I need to make a return visit to L.A! I spent a lot of time in L.A in the 70's and was a frequent customer on the RTD. The bus in photo 6, while obviously new immediately reminded me of the FLXIBLEs the RTD had many of. I'll see if I have a photo of one. Thanks for the update from over there.

W/Disney Concert Hall: That's a building??

Last photo: What an odd design.

Did you have any trouble taking photos and/or videos?

That Walt Disney Concert Hall, is that the one where the fountain "dances" with the music being played?

Not in L.A., but I did in Chicago, of all places. The Metro subway transit police were quite 'gestapo' IMHO, having a go at me for eating on the subway platform. Oops.

Videos definitely were a big no-no, so I didn't bother at all. And generally speaking, I didn't get any shots of rail infrastructure, especially subways, as the constant prescence of transit police was enough to deter me from doing so.

Yes, it is haha. It makes the design of the Sydney Opera House look tame in comparison!

Thanks for all the kind words :)

Most of the subways. etc have what you can do. MTA (I think it is) says that it okay to film/take photos, (except security cameras, etc) on their website.

If that's the building that has that dance-to-the-music fountain, it looks like that "whatever-you-call-it" of a building has been recently added.

Edit: Is their any word/s that describe that "building"?
