Just registered today.....have been collecting Gamewell boxes and parts for 7 years or so......I have an extensive 100 milliamp system with 2 circuits and 4 FACP's on Gamewell masterboxes. (3 local energy masters, 1 shunt master) FACP's are 2 MS-4's, 1 MS-2, and 1 Miniscan 4012. I like fire alarm panels but am bigger into Gamewell stuff obviously. I was previously a member at the forums over at Davidson fire alarms......

My name is Bob, you all might know me as "FireAlarmNut" which, I AM a nut about fire alarms, I'm 15, I have bipolar depression and A.D.D., I get upset easily, I have HORRIBLE comedy skillz, I also tend to talk quite a bit. The stuff I'm in to is in order of interest level:
School Buses,
Fire Alarms,
Radio transceivers (Walkie Talkies),
Railroad crossing signals,
and gaming. Not much else to say, other than here's a link to my channel:
http://www.youtube.com/c/BobTrevek I plan on getting that link changed, or something.

I actually have at least two favorites, but to keep things simple, I'll give you my most favorite, and it would have to be the BlueBird All American A3RE, ranging in years 2002-2005.

My favorite buses are the Saf-T-Liner(The LED version), and some Thomas buses from the 80's.

That's my second favorite. My favorite is the 2015 IC CE.

The newer Saf-T-Liner is a POS and you know it.

Oh, so you're used to the junk, But, I can't really complain, aside from the fact that the IC CE 200's are leaning forward all the time, if you've seen them. My school district has a few IC CE's that lean forward all the time, yet they consider it a normal thing, no flats, no broken springs, it just looks wierd. My second favorite is the Thomas Saf-T-Liner HDX. (I wanted to say C2, but I thought the HDX was cooler)

Older Thomas buses like the MVP-ER, the WestCoastER, and the Saf-T-Liner EF (for some reason I call the Saf-T-Liner EF's
MVP-EF's, not sure why...)

Why? How is it a piece of crap? (It bleeped out what I really said.) I think it's a beautiful looking bus. I kinda like it's style.

Our district has been having nothing but problems with our brand-new Saf-T-Liners. There have been more of them out of service in one year than our IC CEs over three years.

I think we have a dedicated topic to school buses.

Yeah, but I need to ask NewAgeServer to make a topic dedicated to school buses.

There is a dedicated topic in the General discussion forum, but I am assuming you meant that we should create a subforum for it. Honestly, we don't need a subforum related to school busses. This is a fire alarm forum, and it should be related to fire alarms. Also, this is the Introduce Yourself topic, so please try to stay focused on introducing yourself.

I already introduced myself, I just made the mistake of bringing up school buses.
