I realize the list of retirements isn't clear, as the numbers don't say which are which. So I separated them. Yes the 2004 buses will be retiring amongst the rest of them.

Here in Seattle, King County Metro's Gillig Phantoms were supposed to be retir by April, but they are still running

Hell yeah. I still saw them running my local route. The M11's sound nice outside and even better in.

It's possible that 5658 is also retired as it was spotted without it's farebox at Southern Depot.


Normally, buses get their fareboxes removed when they're retired.

5607H and 5605H were removed from revenue service. Which means as it stands, only 5606H, 5608H, and 5611H-5612H are left from the 2003 batch of DE40LFs, however there is a report that 5606, 5608, and 5611 had retired as well, which means only 5612 is left. I'm glad I caught them when I did.

Will the D40LF and DE40LF will be hedding to the scrap yard  after they retire?

All SEPTA buses do.

Maybe the parts from the old SEPTA buses are used in the new SEPTA buses.

Only the fareboxes. For the most part, they tend to sell the old buses to scrap companies.

Speaking of, 5606H has been officially removed form the roster yesterday, Considering that there was only 12 buses in the 2003 batch of DE40LFs, it's kinda sad to see these all go.


Dash5155

A whole bunch just went down today. 5608H, 5611H, 5648-5649, 5653, 5655, 5658, 5674, and 5701 specifically. This is getting sad...

5654, 5662, 5669, and 5672 were added to the list, and 5562 may be soon as well as it was seen being dropped off at the Midvale "scrap yard."

Dash5155

Show'nuff, 5562 retired. Three DD50 buses left in the whole fleet.

Others that recently went are 5621, 5622, 5631, and 5651.

Dash5155

5624, 5625, 5626, 5650 and 5673 can be added to the list.

5647 will be added soon, which will mark the end of the 2003 D40LFs at Victory Depot.

2019 A New Flyer XDE40 was assigned to Frankford (3275) which means soon the remaining 2003s will be pushed out of there as well.

Dash5155

There's rumors floating around that 5541 is retired. If this pans out to be true then there will only be 2 Detroit Diesel Series 50 powered buses in the entire Tri-State area (5516 and 5549) :(

Dash5155

Unfortunately there's only 2 Detroit Diesel series 50 buses left, as
5541, 5628, 5629, and 5634 had retired

Dash5155

I forgot to post this, but 5516 is the last DD50 powered bus left - and its days are numbered already.

5549, 5647, and 5665 retired over the last weekend. Sad days are ahead.

Dash5155

5516, 5614, 5633, 5652, 5657, 5659 and 5670 are officially all retired.

With that being said, there are no longer ANY Detroit Diesel Series 50 buses in SEPTA's fleet. Now SEPTA, like most systems in the US, is all Cummins.

RIP.

R.I.P.  I'm going to miss the DDS50 sound a lot.
