GREAT shot!
Wow, some very interesting scenery and busses

Roadside chalets, mountains, sweet!

Apparently, this is the norm for Switzerland.
Indeed. The bus is spotless and I LOVE how the scenery is reflected in the windows. It looks almost like it is painted on.

These guys asked for this, so I dedicate to them my BEST transit photo they commented on "Reactions to transit enthusiasts"! :D

Arigato, guys!

It showed up by complete fluke! The driver of that bus was funny. We asked him if he could park the bus side by side with the Markham bus.

Charter Member: Can you park the bus beside this other bus for a photo?

Driver of TTC 2006: You actually take pictures of buses?!

He was good enough to do it though!

Here are some of my best photos.

1. STM 59-016, August, 2008.

I had just begun my career as a transit fan, and I found this rare bird laying over at Metro Cote-Vertu. It was our last roll sign-equipped bus.

2. STM 60-013, December, 2008.

After riding our last '90 MCI Classic on the 103, I ran over and got an amazing shot of it. This bus enjoyed a long and prosperous life at the STM's LaSalle division, and we even got to charter it last year.

3. STM 11-088, May, 2009.

Rode this one on the 31, and took this amazing picture after I got off at Metro Henri-Bourassa. This bus was also involved in a charter last year.

4. STM 12-011, April, 2009.

Saw it on Cote-Vertu, so I just had to get a pic. It's a siginficant bus for me because 12-011 is my birthdate (December 11th).

5. TTC 2302, December, 2009.

I was fanning at York University on a sunny, but cold day during my winter break in Toronto, and I saw this shiny Fishbowl pull up. It had recently "graduated" from the TTC's Life Extension Program (LEP).

6. TTC 6705, December, 2009.

I had heard that the TTC's '91 Orion Vs were on the endangered species list, so I really wanted to get pictures of at least one before they were all retired. I got my chance one day while it was on the 90A.

7. TTC 2245, February, 2009.

While not the world's greatest photo, TTC 2245 is a siginificant bus for me because it was the subject of my first-ever transit video. I got to ride it again during a recent trip to Toronto.

Little overblown there Dan, but light streaking is always cool. :unsure:

Might as well throw one in the pot...a rainy night waiting for the bus. I think I inadvertently stepped in a puddle after this shot...

Christ, don't quite remember to see such beautiful photo!!! :):):o

Nice!! :unsure:

This isn't a bus, but I thought you guys would like, a GENUINE swiss Class 460.

In my opinion, good light, sumptuous angle and a great choice for a rail machine:

Is this OK for you?
