Sorry guys, it was a long weekend. It's a 1999 AmTran RE, originally owned by Laidlaw (bought out by First Student in 07). It has a T444E with an AT545, but it moves better than many I've driven with that combo. Full air brakes. We bought it at the 422 Sales bus auction in New Haven on Saturday, the only competition was scrap dealers so we spent less than we were planning and got a newer bus (there was a decent 96, same model, that was the backup if this went too high). It's a 13 row body (12 rows of seats) so it's almost 38 feet overall length. The trip home was uneventful aside from a traffic jam due to a bad accident. This model is notorious for overheating but it stayed under 210 the whole way, despite stop-and-go traffic and some moderate hills on the highway. It's exactly what we were looking for.
