This photo from the Telegram & Gazette (October 29, 2019), shows an MCI 102DL3 that BS Railroad claims is the first of five buses; 102DL3s were manufactured between 1993 and 2001, so we can guesstimate that the bus is 19 to 27 years old:

If he is smart he would loan it to the P&W in exchange for a discount on overhaul service & storage, assuming he still plans to use his one locomotive.

New Hampshire Apportioned plates are in a 2AP123 format...
As a license plate buff making this ID was relatively easy...MACTRAXX
Incorrect.

NH apportioned plates start or end with AP, AF or AR (if not vanity), plus up to 6 digits and Apportioned on the top or bottom of the plate. NH commercial plates, which are rare, start with the identifier COMM or COMM SPEC, and then are 3-6 digits.

Deal with the plates daily in my profession.

NH 2027 is sitting in all its glory in the P&W yard in Worcester, i saw it as part of a pretty large consist near the main maintenance building this morning.

I contacted them via their Facebook page and inquired the status of the institution of the buses.. I was told; "We are waiting on approval of our operating plan by the court. Maybe 30 days or so if all goes well.".

"...no service shall being before at least then..." — I'm not sure what language that is, but it ain't English.
