This mylar front curb side route name and number sign is from 1998 built OBI 06.501 Orion VI
#2050. After its retirement from CDTA it was purchased by  MidWest Bus Corporation in
Owosso, Michigan. The production staff for the movie "Batman v Superman, Dawn of Justice"
obtained the bus and used it in the movie for background traffic while filming in Detroit,
Michigan. It was then returned to MidWest Bus Corp. The original print date of the sign is
September 2002, but it is a second run print of this sign because the original run had a
spelling error on it. (That original run sign is seen to the right.) The sign has 77 exposures
including the blank exposures. All the exposures with 300 series route number exposures are
vinyl stick on readings, and were added later. The sign tag is shown below.
The image of this sign hs been enlarged 1.5 times that of other sign images, to show detail.

This mylar front curb side route name and number sign is from 1998
built OBI 06.501 Orion VI #2041. This sign was the first version
printed, and features a spelling mistake on the #71 exposure, saying
"SRATOGA" instead of "SARATOGA". This spelling mistake was fixed
for the reprint version to the left. The sign is dated September 2002. It
has 78 exposures including the blanks. The #7 and all the 300 series
route number exposures are vinyl stick on readings, and were added
later. The sign tag is shown below.
