CNG High-Floor Bus Farewell + CNG Surprise

Postby Merc1107 » Mon Apr 11, 2016 10:09 pm

Given the success of my compressed images in the prior post, here are some select "photographic tragedies" from Sunday 10-04-16.

Stars of the day, for those who didn't attend were O405's 1094 (Voith) & 1096 (Allison) till lunch time.
After lunch, we were greeted by two Renaults, PR100.2 1029 and PR100.3 1133.

The "surprise" was the IVECO Citelis 18 GNC.
Apparently it sorta works in a halfway decent manner when PATH mechanics and/or drivers hop on one foot, twiddle their thumbs, sing Greensleeves and squint at it just right. Otherwise, well, you get the picture :mrgreen:

All I have to say is it (a). Sounds like a dying cat (b) has a disintegrating concertina at such a young, disused (and rather dysfunctional) age and (c) should be put out of its misery or something.

This bus also brought out the best of the local fauna at a certain terminus in Beechboro... Such a shame it couldn't have actually broken down just to annoy the character some more.

Otherwise a very successful, and fun day out for all involved.

Again, in no specific order, I bring to you:

The CNG Surprise is here as follows... I suppose with equal-representation or rights or whatever this one deserves some space to soak it up too. :shock: :?
