    OC Bus Spottings

    Obviously some people don't get it... Anyways, the thread will be merged back at a later date minus all the crap.
  2. Seeing as many of us have gone out there for the Olympics, thought I would start off a new thread for BC emergency vehicles. awstott was mentioning Demers Ambulances out there, and I guess I did shoot one! These differ from the previous units, which were similar to a bunch of the IHA ones we have here in Edmonton.

    ETS D60LFs

    Since they are such a small subfleet, this should be a somewhat easy thread to update. I think I'm going to start spotting them temporarily, in part to narrow down one that had a fire recently (unless someone knows the number!)... I noticed they are also getting new license plates too! So I'll probably start noting those down as well. And aren't the Series 50s supposed to be repowered at some point? 2001 D60LF: 4900 - in service 4901 - parked at Westwood 4902 - in service 4903 - in service 4904 - in service 4905 - in service 2003 D60LF: 4906 - in service, but broke down on HLB 4907 - in service 4908 - in service 4909 - in service 4910 - in service 4911 - in service 4912 - in service Information as of June 30, 2009 ---------------------- Other notes on the artics would be welcome as well. ie: 4900 joint ripped open at Southgate 4903 has a hole in its engine block, noted 06/13/2009 4906 had a fire on Bellamy Hill 02/25/2009

    Greyhound Spottings & Photos

    First Canada still owns it, there have been some school buses there mainly, but not much activity there. The front area was empty when I drove by last.

    I think there are a couple of units still at the former Edmonton garage on Yellowhead Trail.

  19. One of my favorite things to do when I'm in Vancouver is to ride BC Ferries to Victoria from Tsawwassen. Queen of Vancouver Island or Queen of British Columbia run on the route from Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay. At least one of them got refurbished two years ago. BC Ferries Website

    The Bus (Honolulu, HI)

    Might have had to use an orange version of the rear destination sign, I'm assuming it was white before?

    COLD SHOT Bus and Courier

    Saw one of their cutaways in Edmonton this morning. Ford Econoline chassis, I think it has a cargo area in the rear, which the rear-facing door opens to.
