Empire_Trailways_MCI_ET-8934_.jpg
Empire Trailways139 viewsET934 (8934) 1989 102C3. This coach, and an A3 purchased that year had a Detroit Diesel 8V92 with an Eaton Fuller five speed stick. A similar C3 purchased in 1988 (ET8832), had the same livery, but two fewer seats as it was equipped with a mini galley in the back.Dec 11, 2015

Empire Trailways130 viewsET8427. 1984 Eagle M10 with a 6V92 and five speed Spicer transmission. Three of these were purchased by Empire that year and were not around long, eventually being sold off a few years later.Dec 11, 2015
GMC_6108.jpg
NFTA 6108275 viewsThis was the last appearance of the 6000-series RTS buses. In 1988, the NFTA began an aggressive repainting program for all of the RTS and 700-series Orion I buses. The 5000-series were included in this program which enabled them to be matched with the current (at that time) livery and this also eliminated the black trim at the rear of the bus.Mar 06, 2013
NFTA_6020.jpg
NFTA 6020246 viewsThis was part of a 110 bus order for the NFTA in 1984. The original paint, including the black trim that was standard for GM at that time can be seen here. Also note the door side mirror. The NFTA was one of a few agencies who "flipped" this mirror for easier access to adjustability. These mirrors were reverted back to their original positions after spot mirrors were installed in the early 1990s.Mar 06, 2013

These buses were the last ordered with curtain destination signs as the rest of the 1988 order of Orion I 01.508 buses were ordered with electronic "flip dot" destination signs.

GMC_Motorcoach.jpg
GMC Motorcoach137 viewsThis has been a longtime idea of mine, basically an RTS on steroids. It would use the same windshield glass and takes some of the components from the RTS -03 and 04. This also uses a twin screw tandem axle reminicent of the Scenicruiser rather than the conventional tag axle.Dec 29, 2010
