MTA Maryland Transit Videos
« on: March 17, 2009, 08:13:30 PM »
MTA Maryland 1995 Ikarus Artic 9510 was in service on a school run and I was lucky enough to ride it and capture a few videos, one of which is below:

Cool, thank you.  That would be a great sound recording to play when you are trying to get to sleep!

That bus sounds like its transmission was replaced (Voith DIWA D864.3E is what it is).
 
Originally, these 10 units had ZF Ecomat 5HP-600 model transmissions (a similar specification to that of WMATA 5201-5245 and Miami, FL's Metro Dade County Transit's 1994 and '95 436s). But did the 1996 MTA Maryland units, #9601-9620, get Voiths as well in their mid-lives? WMATA also replaced the ZFs with Voiths on their artics at mid-life.

Yes, the 9600s also have those same transmissions. However, this replacement only happened 3 years ago as there wasn't any mid-life overhaul performed

Question. What did MTA Maryland do with all of the Flxible Metros that use to be stored in the lot on the south end of Wicomico Street?

This is a 6+ minute sound clip of a Nabi that emits a slow whistle type sound when it goes into gear:
