My dad and I went to Edson and I found a 2 buses. The first one I saw was this 1990 Ford Econoline 350 (E-350) that is/was being used as an Out Of School Care (OOSC) bus. As of when I took the picture (Monday May 25th 2020) it is parked behind the Esso Station on 2nd Avenue. VIN 1FDKE30GXLHB70988 The second bus I saw was another E-Series. This one was parked on 3rd Avenue. When I got out of our truck to take a picture there was a lady inside who I can only hope was the driver taking a break that got upset with me. As of the aforementioned date this bus is being used as a Senior Citizen transport bus. Please correct me if I made any mistakes as this is pretty much my first post here!
Since there isn't a thread about these already, I thought I'd start one. First of all, I have a few questions about these buses. 1. What type of LED sign was used on the E550/GCII 5500 shuttles S003 and S004? 2. What happened to S005 (did it even exist?) 3. One of the E550s appears to be in Whistler right now. Does anyone know what it's being used for? Also, since many of these buses were sold to private owners at retirement and are still on the road today, why not post any sightings of these buses here as well?
Came across this while browsing Reddit: Pic I was immediately able to identify it as an early Advantage from the wheel arches, lack of steps, and low windows. However, it has seen heavy modification beyond the double deck conversion: it has a new front clip which takes some parts from a New Flyer LF and headlights from a Ford Econoline van I've obviously identified to all that this bus is an Advantage, but if I hadn't, could you tell what it was? Especially for those who rarely see Gilligs or have never seen one. I originally thought it was a heavily modified D40LF until I looked at the side. Then I thought it was a Phantom with the windows moved down since I had no idea the Advantage came with these half-octagon wheel arches.
