  1. If that f was capitalized I would’ve been asking where the preserved Flyer bus has been hiding. I finally booked a hotel by the airport where prices are more reasonable. Now I can answer your question. 😊 There’s a bunch of hotels across the street from Pearson Airport and along Dixon Rd. 52 runs along Dixon and connects the airport, hotels, and subway stations.
  2. My vacation time has been approved for September! So I'm able to attend the CLRV trip.
  3. Just curious, where will the 2021 convention be held? I heard it might be the Waterloo area?
  4. I hope 901 is still around when I visit at the end of the month.
  5. Yes, I'd love to see MTHA preserve an Invero. Not everyone is a fan of this bus, but it's such a unique-looking vehicle and it's an important piece of Winnipeg history.
  6. Hopefully I can make it to the Farewell CLRV fan trip.
  7. I won't be able to make it to this year's BHA, but I will be going to the one in Iowa City next year. In the meantime, I'm hoping to attend some of the smaller events happening this year.
  8. I just noticed something similar at the YVR South Terminal. Looks like the C92 will become the 412 in September.
  9. A new book about Canada's trolley buses will be published in January, 2019. Click on the PDF file for more information. The price of the book hasn't been determined yet, but if you pre-order the book now, you'll save at least 15% off the regular price. Tire&Wires_Flyer_2018-08-08p1 (1).pdf
  10. Hopefully I'll get to ride 1008 & 1009 within the next fews weeks. I've been really busy with work lately.

  12. Not sure if anyone was notified about this, but the Canadian Transit Heritage Foundation will be hosting a farewell Saskatoon MCI Classic fan trip on Sat, Jun 2, 2018. I hope to attend.
  13. I visited St. Pierre back in 2005. I'm sure a few things have changed by now. My sister & I flew to St. John's, NL, rented a car and drove to the town of Fortune. We stored our rental car in a gated compound and rode a fastcat ferry to St. Pierre. On board the ferry, a rep from the local tourism office was handed out guidebooks and acted as a travel counsellor. Upon arrival, we went through French customs. There were sniffer dogs checking out our baggage. People showed their provincial driver's license. I brought my passport as I wanted it stamped with SPM. From what I recall, the ATMs dispensed Euros. There's no public transit as the entire town is walkable. I spotted an MCI that was used as a tour bus. Being Asian, we were the centre of attention in SPM. People were nodding at us on the streets and saying bonjour madame & monsieur. The locals were also surprised that were able to speak a few words of French, especially when ordering food at a restaurant or shopping in a convenience store. We never made it to Miquelon, but we took a boat tour over to Iles aux Marins (Sailors Island). Here's the MCI that I spotted: Narrow roads & sidewalks in the town centre The ferry to/from Newfoundland:
  14. If there was no mention of Brandon, I would've thought you were visiting Calgary! Haha
  15. Great shots James! That's quite the hodge-podge of a fleet.
