459 - 2005 IC CE

This is one of the more unique buses in the fleet, in that many of the specs differ from the standard North Syracuse specs at the time. The most obvious difference is the window frames. 459 is the only full size IC CE in the fleet to have silver window frames. The upholstery is blue on this bus, where it is brown on all other 2005's in the fleet. Also, the fuel tank is in the center of the frame. On all other CE's in the fleet, the fuel tank is located on the service door side of the frame. The reason for these differences is that this bus was purchased directly off the lot at Leonard to replace bus 343 which was totaled around this time. This bus features a VT365 engine, air brakes, and air door and dual air stop arms, and a white roof as do all the other 2005 CEs.
