D40LF Rumor

Well here is the first rumor concerning SEPTA’s next batch of D40LFs. This rumor states that according to a source at 1234 Market SEPTA is planning to number this batch 8001-8100, the reason being that the first set numbers (5951-6050) would conflict with the paratransit van fleet. The rumor also states that all 100 of these buses will be assigned to Southern because they will run on a special low sulfur fuel like that on the Hybrids, if this happens they will then transfer a large number of Southern current D40LFs to other Depots. As stated in the beginning this is an unconfirmed rumor. I invite inquiry and debate about this on the forums.
