  1. In 2019 a new service was launched out of MSP, Landline. Landline is basically an airport connector shuttle. Major connections in the MSP market are MSP - Duluth DLH, MSP - St. Cloud STC, and MSP - Mankato MKT. Additionally they have expanded into the Colorado market, connecting Denver International DEN with Loveland FNL. Unlike the typical airport shuttles one feature of Landline is a partnership with airlines to allow for thru booking. Currently the have an agreement with Sun Country Airlines. A Sun Country flyer can book a ticket from or to Duluth for example, to any of the Sun Country destinations. That ticket will include the Landline service to/from Duluth to MSP Terminal 2 in the ticket price. It appears United may have a similar setup with the Denver-Loveland line. Initially when Landline started, motorcoach operations were contracted with Lorenz Bus Service. As part of the deal Lorenz brought in some new Van Hool CX-45 liveried in the grey Landline scheme. They also wrapped a couple of their existing coaches in the Landline scheme. I was able to get a couple snaps but unfortunately never really captured most of the fleet. During the 2020 C-19 Pandemic situation, Landline cut back on services a bit due to decreased demand, and also assumed operations internally. Currently their motorcoach fleet consists of Prevost H3-45 and MCI J3500. I suspect the Prevost fleet is at least 6 units 2818-2823, plus potentially another recent addition, however I've only been able to confirm 4 so far based on sightings at MSP and two (2818, 2823) in a Loveland news video on Youtube. The J3500 fleet seems to just be two units, through there could be more. Website: https://landline.com/landline/ From what I've noticed, the service seems to be getting a decent amount of passengers. I regularly see the Landline coaches dropping off and picking up at both MSP terminals. I've also seen their vans and limo SUVs regularly, those seem to be run on the Mankato and St. Cloud services currently and are individually scheduled. I've also added a Landline page in the Wiki, this includes the VINs I've tracked down: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Landline
  2. Here is a picture for a 1979 MCI MC-5C specifications sheet. It isn't HQ and it was of an eBay auction that ended this past January. I can make out from what I can read that the Allison MT644 was the only automatic listed for this (the HT740 was also available but via special order). ~Ben
  3. Was looking through the Prevost Wiki pages and discovered that only 10 of the 35 foot Prevost Champion model TS-41/CTS-41 were built and all were built for the Canadian Forces. I just wanted to verify that this is in fact true. With that, I would guess that the coach in this image: http://www.busfanplace.com/view.php?pict=alma7208.jpg is an ex-Forces unit... Does anyone have more info on these? Here is the link to the Prevost Champion Wiki page: http://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Prevost_Car_Champion
  4. Mexican Motorcoach Buses Photos of motorcoaches used by charter & intercity bus companies in Mexico. Today, most motorcoaches in Mexico are from DINA, Marcopolo, Volvo, & Irizar. MCI & VanHool are very rare but do make appearances. ******************************************* This DINA Viaggio is from a Mexican charter bus company called Big State City. I took this photo back in summer 2010. Autopista Mexico Federal 49 (Cuota) Ciudad Jimenez, Chihuahua ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************ A charter bus company called "Turismo Paba" owns this Irizar I5. I found this bus in Leon back in summer 2010. ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************ This migth be the only MCI bus deep inside Mexico (not including the border areas) that I have seen so far (who knows, I must of missed some when I wasnt looking). I found this MCI E4500 from Turimex Internacional traveling on Mexico Federal Highway 49 in the state of Durango. I think this was near the town of Cuencame.
