    2016 Grande West Vicinitys

    So I've noticed the Vicinity buses haven't run since July 26/27th. Are they all parked or what's the deal?

    Damaged or dead vehicles

    Yikes! That's scary to hear, hope the injured person recovers well. According to transit 55, 7928 was on the Route 7 and 7848 would have been the empty bus, assuming it was out of service.

  11. So during the past summer of 2012, I noticed in there was a company operating out of Medicine Hat, AB. The company was a number company and then below the number company on the legals, it stated Transportation Charter Services- Orange, CA. Upon further research TCS is indeed based out of Orange, CA, but it appears they had some buses based in Alberta for the past summer. I am not sure if they have kept those buses in Alberta during the winter or not. Also not sure if they will again operate in Alberta next summer. They were doing work for various touring companies like Contiki and Trafalger. Here are my photos of their buses Some previews here, please do not quote images.

  13. Kevin's Bus and Rail Page Okay I figure maybe I should start a thread here, as some probably know I've had my site up for a little over 5 years now. Updating once a week for the majority of that period. I currently update every Sunday, when I get a chance to get to it during that Sunday. On the rare ocasion I will cancel/postphone updates either because I don't have access to a computer or I am just too busy. But that usually only happens about 3 or 4 times a year, so rest assured! Anyhow here is the update for the week of Jan. 14-20, 2007 ETS GM-BBC trolleybus 175-2 and 179-2 GM New Look diesel 941, 959-2 and 986 New Flyer D40LF 4307, 4320 and 4336 U2 LRV 1032-2 and 1032-3 Strathcona County Transit (AB) Prevost X3-45 1008(2) and 1009(3) GM/MCI Classic 879-2, 879 Rear, 883(2) and 900 SF MUNI Skoda-ETI trolleybus 5411, 5510, 5514, 5521, 5524, 5529, 5540, 5552 and 5555.
