  1. Thought I'd pass along a picture courtesy of a friend. New buses being decaled Traxx but legals remain VT&T. All companies as mentioned are still running as they are right now,
  2. might be one of the Ex Premier Pacific units they have? Was it the 2003-2009 front fascia or the 2010+?
  3. 2 Brand new 2017 J4500's from the factory. 889 and 890: Universal Coach Lines 2017 MCI J4500 #889-1 by Dannny29, on Flickr Universal Coach Lines 2017 MCI J4500 #890-1 by Dannny29, on Flickr
  4. Cantrail 462: Cantrail Coach Lines Prevost H3-45 #462-1 by Dannny29, on Flickr New addition?
  5. Not sure. Thats a question for the owner. And so far all its been one.. Edit: All the UCL Coaches say "Operated" so I don't really know why it matters.
  6. Was hanging at Universal today with a friend when I noticed a new style H3-45 pull in all dirty. Didn't take much of it until I saw the fleet number 887. Thought I had seen it before but turns out it just pulled in from the Quebec Factory! Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome #887! A 2017 Prevost H3-45! Here's some pictures in the yard. I was looking through it and asked the regional manager if it was to be assigned to a particular tour company. No plans yet. Doesn't even have plates yet! Enjoy!

  7. managed to see 2 of ISL's latest purchases. 2017 J4500s #5418 and 5418 from friday. International Stage Lines 2017 MCI J4500 #5415-1 by Dannny29, on Flickr International Stage Lines 2017 MCI J4500 #5418-1 by Dannny29, on Flickr
  8. They came around sometime last year. K&C coach sold to someone and with it went a Black H3-41 and an old H3-45 from what I was told by a friend who drives for them. Then the owner bought a bunch of coaches. Not sure why they have 2 different names though, but they are registered as Pacific West Coach lines anyways on the PT registry. Other than that, I don't know much more.
  9. Shot of the Safeway coaches from Attridge lined up in the yard. Courtesy of my girlfriends aunt.
  10. They'd be just fine sitting in storage. Just disconnect their batteries and keep them out of the elements and they will start up no problem. Save some money and store them instead of spending more to keep them on the road just to sit and do nothing. Many companies de-plate buses and let them sit when not in use and bring them right back when time comes.
  11. Joined a friend on a bus swap on sunday to Kelowna. Took out MCI J4500 #860 and swapped with J4500 #875 to bring down. The Coq was not kind in terms of weather but a fun outing in the end!

  13. My bad. Was just trying to remember off the top of my head on that one. misread my response. It's all up to Transport Canada and the province whether they would allow it or not on the roads. I imagine they would ask where it would operate and look at if the streets are even able to handle it.
  14. Well they did pump out the H5-60 which did have 4 axles. 2 steers, 2 mid ship and 1 for the trailer that steered. If you are talking as in one long body then no, it wouldn't quite be possible. Navigating in city is hard as it is for a 45 foot bus. And if you added another axle you would extend the wheelbase, that cuts the turning radius as well.
  15. Doesn't look like what is on the site. The ones on McMynn have black rubber bumpers. One pictured above still has the fibreglass one. I also saw 5215 tonight doing a pub crawl New Years Eve.
