  1. Greyhound Spottings & Photos

    Couple weeks ago MCI 102-DL3 #6045 was sold to Tofino Bus. Bus hit a moose years back and sat in the yard for 2 years. Starts and runs, just needed a new face. Got towed out. Accident buses from the Coquihalla incident are also back in the yard. 6050 has minor damage. Needs a new Windshield, Fence, and some cosmetic work on the front. 6064 isn't too bad but the front end is pretty crunched. 1266 which was in the ditch is the worst of them all. tag wheels are bent to one side, rear roof is crunched, damage all around. Will see what happens. Could take a while for the investigation and insurance to work itself out. And no I will not post or show pictures of the buses.
  2. Universal Coach Line

    Didn't know Universal had an X3-45. Saw it yesterday at Prevost in Richmond. Numbered 917. Legals say Airdrie. Also note H3-41 #307 has been legalled up for Airdrie. Saw it last night in the yard. Universal Coach Lines Prevost X3-45 #917-1 by Dannny29, on Flickr
  3. Greyhound in the news

    X3-45s. They probably will be west coast but have not heard anything. Trailer hitches, high chance but won't know until I see them myself. Haven't heard if they will get wheelchair lifts either. We still have several lift equipped buses. Also take into account the D4505s up north that have lifts too. Not sure where those will end up once the cuts come into effect later.

    I was told 34 in total. Ex First Canada that ran up in the Oil Patches. I was given a booklet of photos of one of the units yesterday. Can really see the dirt and grime on the buses from running up in the oil sands. 3 are in Edmonton right now and one should be down in Vancouver in the next 2 weeks. 21 I think have Series 60's and rest have D13's. Interior wise they have similiar seats to the American X3-45's. Will be kept white from what I'm hearing for the time being. Have not heard if they are replacing any MCI's with them or whatever. Don't ask about it because your guess is as good as mine. Drivers will be getting training on them of course. Can't wait to see them and work on D13's.

    Really nasty accident on the Coquihalla Tonight just outside of Hope. 2 semi's and what looks like 2 Greyhound buses. One Blue DL3 and one White D4505 in the ditch on it's side. 29 people taken to hospital with various injuries. I was wondering where some of the buses were tonight as they usually come in around 9pm or after. Hope everyone is ok. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/coquihalla-highway-closed-in-both-directions-after-accident-injures-29-1.4551656

    Looks like Wilson's repainted #7556 from its original American Stages black base to the white with blue CBL style stripes. So fresh! Saw it a couple nights ago and serviced it last night.
